The many emotions of Lindsay Lohan, captured in court on February 9th.

Yesterday CBS announced that Lindsay Lohan would be delivering the Top Ten on Thursday's The Late Show with David Letterman, via satellite from California. Today the show's production company announced that Lohan would not be appearing, explaining someone purporting to be a friend of Lindsay's booked the appearance. Turns out that person was actually her father. What an emotional rollercoaster this whole thing has been! But in case Lindsay has the urge to take it out on the bottle, Charlie Sheen has some words of advice—and we can all agree, that is just amazing. (Recently his words of advice have included: crack is okay if you can manage it socially!)

Lohan herself announced via Twitter, "I am NOT going to be doing David Letterman, I'm not sure how this happened, but I am sorry for the confusion." It wasn't until moments ago that word got out—via TMZ, of course—it was Michael Lohan behind the mess. He told the site he only signed her up after she approved the booking. Papa Lohan says everything was going smoothly, but when Lindsay's reps caught wind of the appearance they shut it down. (Probably due to that whole grand theft thing.)

Stay tuned for the inevitable rebooking of Lindsay Lohan on Letterman...
