Somewhere, that gargoyle Rosie O’Donnell is cackling.
Lindsay Lohan’s tenure on the Glee set may not go down as her finest hour, according to a source quoted by E! who claims she was “incredibly late” and that production had to send a car to the Chateau Marmont hotel to pick her a$$ up.
Par for the course really.
“Lindsay was a total nightmare yesterday,” says one (clearly less than thrilled) source on the Glee set of their guest star. “She was three hours late in the morning.”
“When she did arrive, she just didn’t want to be there. She did not want to work. She had not memorized her lines, and kept disappearing so no one could find her.”
Some staffers on set were so miffed, they dubbed her “That Girl,” adding, “She has rubbed them all up the wrong way by being so disrespectful of everyone else.”
On the flip side, a highly placed Glee source says Lohan’s scene went “really great, she was so professional and it looked like everything was going to go so well.”
Lindsay’s spokesman Steve Honig insists she was late because of a “misunderstanding” about her call time, and is displeased with this report. He says:
“That meant she had a lot of time where she wasn’t doing anything. That’s why people didn’t see her. She was in hair and makeup and began after lunch at 3.”
He adds: “If there was a problem, I would have just said ‘no comment,’ however I can’t ignore this because this is utter B.S. This is a classic example of people trying to bash Lindsay. She busted her ass yesterday and is back on set again today.”
Another well-placed Glee source adds that despite the tardiness woes yesterday, “Everyone on Glee is still rooting for Lindsay. We had made a few jokes at her expense earlier in the show, and we really do want her to be able to succeed.”
Lohan, who will also star in an upcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic, has come under fire lately from O’Donnell, who warns she could end up like Whitney Houston.
The troubled star is back on the Glee set today finishing up her guest spot, which is set to air during the Fox show’s third season finale May 15.
