You might look at the header photo and think, “It‘s sad that the Today show has to resort to doing interviews with 40-year-old hookers. It‘s morning television, after all.” And then you understand – this is Lindsay Lohan, with her t-ts out, letting her skirt ride up, staring out from underneath that hideous white-blonde wig. Yesterday, we discussed the rumor that Lindsay Lohan was going to do a “no holds barred” interview with Today’s Matt Lauer. Well, it’s already gone down – Today released this photo plus a partial transcript of this mess, with the actual interview to air on Thursday, tomorrow. Here’s what Today is shilling:
In an exclusive interview set to air on TODAY Thursday morning, Lindsay Lohan tells Matt Lauer that she is “clean and sober” and she wants “to continue to move forward and in the right direction.”
The actress, who will host “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, also told Lauer, “I still need to go through the process of proving myself.”
Lohan, 25, is one court appearance away from putting her legal troubles from a 2007 drunken driving case behind her. Lauer asked her if, when they spoke last, the actress was in denial.
“Definitely,” Lohan said. “And I think it was — it’s a scary thing to have to kind of express to people … I wasn’t as comfortable with myself then. I think it was a fear factor that I had about what was really going on. And, you know, I had to get that wakeup call.”
Lohan also told Lauer that the temptation of night life and parties is something she’s avoiding.
“That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.”
It may be that change in lifestyle, or at the least the perception that there has been a change, that will help the actress get back to work.
“Do you think people have gotten back, or can get back to the point where they trust you?” Lauer asked. “In other words, professional people? You know, if they say to you, ‘Come host ‘Saturday Night Live’,’ that’s a big commitment. And do you think the producers and directors of movies and television projects are going to get back to the part where they can go, ‘You know what? Yeah, we can count on Lindsay. We can bank on her?’”
“I think that that’s gonna take — I think that takes time,” Lohan said. “And I think that it’s actions. Because people can say things all they want, but I think I still need to go through the process of proving myself, you know, with ‘SNL,’ being on time, being, you know, keeping my — can’t say the word — but stuff together.”
Lohan offers details on reports that she’s set to play Elizabeth Taylor in her next project.
“We’re in the middle of casting and figuring — we start production soon,” Lohan said. “I’ve been doing tons of research. But I’ve always kind of researched her. She’s always been a fascinating woman to me. So I’m really honored. And I will not let anyone down, especially myself.”
Asked about that need to qualify her commitment, Lohan says she understands how it might be scary for people to invest in her.
“I don’t want people to have that reason to be scared anymore. So being able to have this opportunity with ‘SNL’ and the film, I’m gonna do what I’m supposed to do, and enjoy doing it, and do it as best as I can.”
OMG. BITCH PLEASE. Same crack lies, same crack hustle, different g–damn day. “I had to get that wakeup call” – which wakeup call? Which trip to rehab? Which arrest? Which jail sentence? There hasn’t been ONE wakeup call. There is only a series of crack shenanigans which never, EVER serve as a “wakeup call” to this dumb crackhead.
But the most ridiculous thing is – “That’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.” Says the girl living at the Chateau Marmont. Says the girl who gets blitzed and takes off her clothes for Terry Richardson every week. Says the girl who went out partying with her mother AFTER her court date last week. Says the girl who started throwing drinks AND punches during last fall‘s NY Fashion Week. And what’s worse is that she thinks it’s working. She thinks we’re buying it. THIS is why I’ll never say “Oh, poor Lindsay.” She’s a liar, a user, and a terrible person. She’s a violent sociopath.
