Lindsay Lohan White House Correspondents Dinner, This Saturday night, while you’re watching John Cusack brood in “The Raven” or catching up on “Game of Thrones” — or doing something besides staring at a glowing rectangle — a certain flame-haired actress will be dining with America’s commander-in-chief.
That’s right: Lindsay Lohan, newly minted Lifetime movie star, will attend 2012â€²s White House Correspondents’ dinner. Her rep tells the Washington Post that Lilo is going to be a guest of Fox News host Greta van Susteren, who must be a closet fan of “I Know Who Killed Me.” And to make matters even odder, Lohan’s defense attorney Shawn Holley will also be present at the soiree. I guess that’ll come in handy if another lady accuses her of battery afterward.
It’s bizarre that Lohan’s going to rub elbows with Barack, Michelle, and a roster of Beltway insiders and Hollywood A-listers at the event. But ever since famous residents of the Left Coast started attending the WHCD in greater numbers, the event’s guest list has included more than a few head scratchers. For example:
- In 2002, bat-biter Ozzy Osbourne attended and evidently stole the show from then-president George W. Bush. (Hey, remember when The Osbournes was a thing?) Bush tried to get the last laugh by telling Osbourne that Barbara Bush was a big fan of albums like “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.”
