GRETA VAN SUSTEREN INVITES LINDSAY LOHAN TO WHITE HOUSE AND HOPING TO GET LUCKY
April 27 2012
Washington, D.C. - Of all people in the world who could be invited to the White House, the about the last person on the list would be Lindsay Lohan. The former child actor turned drunk, drug-ridden mess will, however, be at the White House for the Correspondent’s dinner, accompanied by Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren.
Van Susteren is attending the ceremony as a member of the media, but her choice of plus one has shocked observers and even White House staff who will now have to double or possible triple their alcohol order just to keep their special guest stable.
“She's got a new movie and I'm hoping things work out for her. I love comebacks, and I'd like her to succeed,” Van Susteren reportedly told TMZ’s Harvey Levin of her choice.
It’s not clear when or where the pair met or why Van Susteren is so interested in Lohan’s comeback attempt specifically, but it’s believed that she and her husband have been spending significant time apart recently.
Lohan reportedly pledged to be on her best behaviour and to ensure she is on time,
Van Susteren will reportedly spend the entire day with her, even helping her to get dressed, just to make sure she is perfect for the occasion.
“Normally celebrities do attend this particular event for no real reason but it is common. I don’t know what the standards are for them, obviously there are some people who aren’t going to be attending one way or the other, but it’s pretty obvious that the standards are not high considering the Lohan situation,” said Scrape TV Political analyst Gabriel Kinsey. “It’s most likely, I would guess, that the White House is bending over a little bit, loosening the restrictions, because it is an election year and they don’t want to alienate Fox News. I’m sure Van Susteren is hoping that it isn’t just the White House that loosening restrictions that night too.”
Fox also invited Kim Kardashian who has reportedly always dreamt of being peed on at the White House.
“Greta Van Susteren and Lindsay Lohan do seem an odd pair. I mean it really doesn’t make sense that they know each other at all, but I guess sometimes these things just happen, sometimes you just get lucky. Hopefully everyone involved gets lucky that night, including the people running the White House. They’ll need it with Lohan,” continued Kinsey. “Of course I don’t see how attending the White House Correspondent’s dinner will advance Lohan’s career or make her more stable or successful at all. I mean there really isn’t any kind of connection between the two things, but I guess that isn’t exactly what Van Susteren is thinking. Who knows what she’s thinking but sometimes we do irrational things for totally rational reasons. Hopefully it works out for her.”
Lohan reportedly has no idea when the dinner is or even where the White House is located.
