(Newser) – Wait 'til David Letterman pens a Top 10 List about this. Turns out it was Lindsay Lohan's father who booked her on Letterman, only to see her back out and blame "someone purporting to be her friend," in the words of a representative. Lindsay "knew full well" about the booking," Michael Lohan told TMZ. They even discussed transportation to and from the Los Angeles studio, where Lindsay planned to do the bit via satellite. Pop insists everything was going smoothly until Lindsay's reps heard about it and stopped it. A miffed Letterman appeared to implicate Michael Lohan in the snafu when he apologized for any embarrassment the program announcement about Lohan's appearance may have caused Lindsay or (pointedly) "her family."
