Maybe it was lowered expectations, but I thought Lindsay Lohan did a solid job as guest host of last night’s Chelsea Lately. She was playfully goofy and appeared at ease taking light-hearted jabs at herself. From her brief lesbian relationship to recent court-ordered vacation aka rehab stint, the 27-year-old actress somehow found a way to add a self-deprecating personal anecdote, no matter which celebrity the show’s comedians were making fun of. From dissing Kristen Stewart to poking fun at Justin Bieber to Harry Styles, all roads somehow led to Lohanville.
One of my favorite moments occurred when discussion took place regarding gay-rights activists dumping vodka to protest Russia’s controversial “gay propaganda” law. LiLo joked, “Waste of good vodka” before claiming she’s now allergic and as a result, ends up in jail or rehab if consumed. “Rightfully so,” she further added.
And while not always the best interviewee, Lindsay showed she could helm her own talk show. She looked like a natural while interviewing new Arrow stud Dylan Bruce. As a side note: How hot did he look? And more importantly, how in the world did Lohan get so lucky to sit across this stud as her first post-rehab gig? Check out their adorable interaction below, along with Lohan’s opening monologue. Overall, a solid first step in what will hopefully be a legitimate comeback.
What do you think of Lohan’s performance? Do you think her comeback is for real this time? Is she serious about turning her life around? Or should we simply just start the countdown to when she’s spotted at a club drinking copious amounts of liquor? Sound off below.
