That header ^^ is an actual screecap from one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s appearances on Glee, back in 2010. Gwyneth – and the writers of Glee – had some fun mocking Lindsay Lohan in Spanish. The Cracken, as you can imagine, whined and cried about it for months (in between doing lines at the Marmont, obviously). You would have thought that Lindsay would never want to have anything to do with anyone involved with Glee ever again! Except that Lindsay is a crackhead with a short attention span and a deep-seated need to be the center of attention, so now she’s going to be on Glee. For real.
Glee is going Lindsane. The Fox hit is in final negotiations with Lindsay Lohan to guest star in one of this season’s final episodes, TVLine has learned exclusively. What’s more, she’ll be tacklinga role she was born to play: herself!
An insider at the Fox hit confirms that, if the deal is sealed, the movie star-turned-tabloid queen — once famously the butt of a joke on the show — will serve as a celebrity judge at Nationals. Although there’s no word yet as to who might be joining Lohan on the panel, past judges for the annual season-ending competition have included Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John.
The Glee gig would mark the latest leg of the troubled actress’ Hollywood comeback, which got underway last month when she hosted Saturday Night Live. Her last scripted TV gig was a 2008 arc on Ugly Betty. She’s currently in talks to play acting legend Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime biopic.

You know what I think is funny? So far, we’ve only heard about this Elizabeth Taylor bio-pic from Camp Crackie. To my knowledge, Lifetime hasn’t said a thing about it. No director, no producer, no costar has said anything publicly. It feels like the Linda Lovelace project all over again… like Lindsay just enjoys telling everyone that she’s got the part but it all falls apart at the end of the day. So… while Lindsay was able to crack-walk her way through Saturday Night Live, and this Glee gig will probably happen, let’s not push the whole “comeback” storyline too hard, okay?
You know why everything is going to fall apart again? Because this hit-and-run story is yet another in a long line of cracktastrophes from Lindsay, only this one has legs. Legs that Lindsay will drunkenly crush under the wheels of her deathmobile.
Thaer Kamal, the Hookah Lounge manager that alleges Lindsay Lohan hit him and his vehicle, met with two LAPD detectives Tuesday morning at an undisclosed location for more than an hour, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported Lohan, 25, was driving away from the Sayers Club in Hollywood almost two weeks ago in her new black Porsche when she says she was blocked by a horde of paparazzi and club patrons from the nearby Hookah Lounge. As Lindsay was trying to make a U-turn among the crowd at the late night hotspot, she allegedly hit Kamal and his car and then sped off.
Kamal was interviewed by investigators from the LAPD for more than an hour, and his two attorneys, Mark Gergaos and Tamar Arminak were present.
“Thaer gave an honest and accurate account of what happened to him that night,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “He wants Lindsay to be held accountable for her actions. She shouldn’t have driven away after hitting him, period. He doesn’t want her to get away with it. Thaer feels that Lindsay’s camp has bullied him by making up stories that he was being investigated for insurance fraud. He was steadfast in his conviction that he has never committed any crime, and hasn’t been investigated ever for fraud. Thaer is fearful for his family back in Iraq, he has done nothing wrong, he didn’t break any laws. He served with the United States Army for six years and seven months, and has a spotless record. He obeys all laws, and he wonders why Lindsay doesn’t.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, media reports circulated last week that Kamal was being investigated for insurance fraud in eight different cases for staging fake car accidents and filing bogus claims.
“Let’s be very clear about this, Thaer Kamal has never been investigated for insurance fraud, fraud, staging car accidents or anything even remotely related to any illegal criminal behavior,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “Thaer doesn’t have a criminal record, has never been arrested and this is the first time he has ever filed a claim with his insurance company. Thaer is disgusted that these false reports have been made.”
Kamal’s attorneys are looking into who has been slandering their client. “Mark and Tamar will be investigating who made those false statements about Thaer being the focus of insurance fraud investigations and will take the appropriate legal action against those responsible for the false and defamatory comments if necessary,” the insider said.
Geragos turned over the surveillance video that captured the alleged hit and run, as well as Thaer’s medical records. “The detectives were very receptive and interested in Kamal’s statement. It was done professionally, and away from prying eyes so that Thaer can try and maintain some sort of privacy because of security concerns for his family in Iraq,” the source says.
Lindsay is scheduled to appear for her final progress report Thursday in connection with her necklace theft case. Despite media reports that Lindsay is in the clear from this incident, our law enforcement source says, “that isn’t accurate because this is still an ongoing criminal investigation. It’s a fluid situation and the detectives will be conducting further interviews with eyewitnesses.”
While I don’t think this stuff will end up affecting her probation hearing on Thursday (the judge wants the Cracken off of her docket by any means necessary), I do think Lindsay is going to be dealing with this Kamal stuff for much longer than she expected.
