Whoops -- looks like Lindsay Lohan won’t be doing David Letterman’s Top 10 list after all.

The troubled actress, arraigned earlier this month on a grand-theft charge for allegedly lifting a $2,500 necklace, was announced as a Thursday guest on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman.”

But looks like the Letterman folks got had. According to a statement early Wednesday from Worldwide Pants, the show’s production company: “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.”


The statement came a few hours after Lohan herself tweeted: “I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I’m not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion ...”

What do you think of the mix-up? Would you have watched Lohan deliver the Top 10 list?
