Every dinner party has one: Rachel Getting Married had Rachel, The Office had Jan. This particular dinner party, however, just happens to include the President of the United States of America and some more of the most powerful people in entertainment and politics. So Lindsay Lohan might want to be on her best behavior when she attends the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday.
Invited as a guest of Fox’s Greta Van Susteren (who was responsible for letting Kim Kardashian in last year) the 25-year-old will be among the Washington and Hollywood elite, including George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, Stevie Wonder, Viola Davis, President Obama’s senior campaign adviser David Axelrod and, of course, President Barack Obama himself.
Lohan’s rep told Hollywood.com in a statement, “Lindsay is obviously extremely excited to attend this event with Shawn [Holley, her attorney] at the kind invitation of Greta and her husband.”
Of course, even more fun than speculating how Lohan will react to emcee Jimmy Kimmel‘s inevitable jabs (whatever you do, LiLo, don’t follow the cue of last year’s ultimate party pooper Donald Trump) is wondering where they’ll seat the Mean Girls star. Will they put Lohan (whose ex Samantha Ronson attended 2011’s dinner) at the kids table alongside the likes of fellow first-time guests Josh Hutcherson and Zooey Deschanel?
Or will they really shake things up and seat her alongside Attorney General Eric Holder, National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno. Imagine that dinner banter, if you will. Go ahead, I’ll give you a few minutes. Though, to be fair, she and Clooney might have more talking points than anyone else there.
