David Letterman is speaking out after his CBS show, "The Late Show with David Letterman," announced that Lindsay Lohan would be a guest, and then she later denied it.
On Tuesday, "The Late Show with David Letterman" sent out a press release announcing that Lohan, who was recently charged with felony grand theft, would be announcing the "Top Ten List" via satellite that coming Thursday. Lohan then tweeted on Tuesday night, "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion...."
On Wednesday night's "Late Show," Letterman gives his take on how the events went down. He says that after he included a joke about Lindsay stealing a Grammy on one of last week's shows, he got a call from a "guy" who told him, "Lindsay thought the joke was hilarious." He says the "guy" proceeded to tell him that Lindsay wanted to be on "The Late Show."
He says he instructed his publicity department to share the news, but adds, "Then Lindsay Lohan says, 'Oh, I don't know, none of that's happening, I don't know what's going on. It's not true.'"
"So it turns out we were duped," Letterman shares. "And I have no one to blame but myself, and boy, is my face red!"
"And by the way, now I have to apologize to the Lindsay Lohan family. I hope I didn't embarrass you Lindsay, and your family," Letterman adds with a sincere and apologetic expression on his face.
Lindsay's father Michael Lohan told TMZ that he had brokered the deal.
