The Late Show host had actress Lindsay Lohan as a guest for Wednesday's episode, and didn't let the opportunity to question LiLo about her upcoming rehab stint go by. An uncomfortable Lohan tried to deflect Letterman's questions, but he didn't let her off the hook so easily. Letterman asked:
"Aren't you supposed to be in rehab?"
"Don't you watch anything that goes on? What are you a tabloid now? May 2!"
Undeterred, Letterman kept the pressure on Lohan about her issues with alcohol, despite the actress remarking they, "didn't discuss this during the pre-interview." Watch a snippet of the interview after the jump! READ MORE
Could LiLo not be as much of a hot mess as the blogosphere and tabloids make her out to be? While we don't know about that, one of her Liz & Dick co-stars did have a few kind words about her.

Veteran TV journalist Barbara Walters is not too keen on troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan these days. Last week, LiLo bowed out of a sit-down interview with Walters on 20/20, after her new publicity team claimed the actress wasn't "up to it."
Instead, Lohan's team decided to grant her first interview to promote Liz & Dick to Jay Leno of The Tonight Show. Babs voiced to her co-hosts on The View about how "disappointed" she was. Walters said:
We were supposed to do the interview last week to air on 20/20 Nov. 16. I spent a lot of time doing a lot of homework, watching the movie. Then her longtime press agent resigned. That should've been a clue. The next thing we hear is my interview is canceled because Lindsay doesn't feel up to it. She has a lot of problems ... I said, 'Poor girl, I hope when she feels like it she will do it with us.' So today I pick up the paper and find out Lindsay]is sitting for an interview with Jay Leno. READ MORE
