The actress appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman and those who were expecting her to drunkenly jump on Dave's desk and flash her breasts a la Courtney Love were solely disappointed. She looked the best she has in years. She answered every question (well, almost every question...). And she took ribbing from the late night host with the kind of humor and self-deprecation that, if nothing else, could get people back on her side again.
David Letterman certainly didn't make things easy for her, though, treating their chat more like a Barbara Walters special than a late night interview. "Aren't you supposed to be in rehab now?" he immediately asked. "How will this time be different? What are they rehabbing, first of all? What is on their list? What are they going to work on when you walk through the door?"
But rather than get flustered, Lindsay gave a sincere and unscripted response that resulted in the audience applauding her. "I'm the happiest when I'm working and the healthiest, and I think this an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don't think it's a bad thing. I think it's a blessing... and not a curse. I'm looking forward to it," she said.
