Lindsay Lohan tells Letterman rehab will be ‘a blessing’

‘We didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview’

Lindsay Lohan appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman, where she told the talk-show host that her upcoming court-ordered rehab was “a blessing.”

While Lohan appeared on Letterman’s show in an effort to promote an upcoming guest appearance on Charlie Sheen’s television program Anger Management and a cameo in Scary Movie 5, Letterman — who frequently uses Lohan as fodder for his jokes — quickly pressed for details of her court-ordered rehabilitation.

“Aren’t you supposed to be in rehab?” Letterman asked Lohan.

She said that she will start a three-month in-patient rehabilitation program on May 2.

Letterman pressed for more details and Lohan tried to joke, “we didn’t discuss this in the pre-interview,” but she eventually relented.

“To be honest, I’m the happiest when I’m working, and the healthiest, and I think this is an opportunity for me to focus on what I love in life,” Lohan told Letterman. “I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I think it’s a blessing, not a curse.”

The audience applauded.

However, she dodged Letterman’s follow-up: “Do you have addiction problems?” by saying: “Now you sound like Dr. Phil.”

And she tried to redirect: “We’re here for a movie, let’s stay on the positive.”

Whether or not the troubled star would even show up for her scheduled appearance on Letterman was questioned. In November, Lohan stood up Barbara Walters for an interview, ditching her for Jay Leno at the last minute. But she made it to Letterman and even joked about being early when she first stepped onto the set.

She did, however, blow off another court appearance to make it to Letterman. The New York Daily News reports that Lohan went out for sushi in Manhattan when she should have been in a California court for a deposition to speak about a 2010 incident involving celebrity photographer Grigor Balyan.

    • Can you prove this?

      • Matthew 27:39-41…..

        …..39 And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, “You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”

        • Still waiting for proof.

    • Jesus is a storybook character, albeit an interesting one. You would be as productive devoting your time to studying Harry Potter.

      • It amazes me when they quote the bible as proof. That isn’t proof. It’s simply a matter of faith and if a person believes in it, then great, but on’t speak for everyone else.!

  2. This is so disgusting that so called ‘celebrities’ like Lindsay Lohan are getting interviews and being called on t.v shows, she is a total mess and should be in rehab and not come out until she is completely better. Leave it to americans to promote crack- heads on t.v. Good example you are giving people. No wonder teenagers think its cool to be a drug addict, alcohol addict, or act like a total mess, when disgusting people like Lohan are all over the media. In fact why don’t Lohan and Charlie Sheen start their own reality t.v show I’m sure americans would love that!

    • I totally agree with you. Reality TV has gotten way out of hand and so is how we treat these “celelbrities”. And we wonder why this generation is so screwed up from all the mixed messages!

  3. Hollywierd trainwreck pseudo celebrity. When was the last time she actually made a movie that anyone watched or remembered anyways? Rehab will most certainly be a blessing. Drug treatment centres and prisons are the best places to meet new drug dealers.
