Late Night with David Letterman seemed like the perfect forum for a comeback for troubled wacktress Lindsay Lohan. The almost Inferno leading lady was set to do the Top 10 on the popular show until her people pulled the plug and said the whole thing was the work of a prankster. Lohan was adamant that she had never committed to anything. Apparently, it was better never than Late. She Tweeted, "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion." The folks at CBS then retracted an earlier announcement saying, "Lindsay Lohan will not be delivering a Top Ten list on Thursday's 'Late Show with David Letterman,' as had been previously announced. We made a mistake. Someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's reached out to the show yesterday, allegedly on her behalf, and booked her to appear. Clearly, this person was not authorized to make commitments on her behalf. We wish Lindsay well, and look forward to having her on the show in the future." But it was no joke in the end. According to TMZ, the person who orchestrated the whole appearance was none other than pestering papa Michael Lohan, who suddenly fancies himself a spin doctor. The d-bag dad maintains that his daughter was well aware that he was setting up the gig and even gave her blessing. Lohan tells TMZ that she "knew full well" he was coordinating everything, and the two had even discussed transportation. He adds that once again he's been sabotaged by her people. Michael tells TMZ, "Anything positive that I bring into her life ... [her people] try to nix it." Sounds like the only folks grounding Lohan from television are her handlers.
