Lindsay Lohan is currently filming a segment for ‘Glee’, and even though last week shooting went “really great, she was so professional and it looked like everything was going to go so well,” yesterday did not go as well.
Lindsay showed up on the set of the hit FOX show over three hours late. E! reports that some staffers were so upset with her tardiness, that they nicknamed her “That Girl”, saying “She has rubbed them all up the wrong way by being so disrespectful of everyone else’s schedule.”
Dot Marie Jones, who plays Coach Bieste, tweeted out (and later deleted): “Gonna be a long day!! Some ppl show up late and just throw a wrench in things. Not cool! I’d rather be an hour early (I was) than 5 minutes late.”
Lindsay (along with guest celebrity judges Rex Lee and Perez Hilton) was shooting the big “Nationals” competition, for the Glee episode that will air May 15 on Fox. They were doing reaction shots of Lindsay and the other audience members yesterday. She is playing herself.
Lindsay’s spokesman Steve Honig insists she was late yesterday because of a “misunderstanding” about her call time, and tells us: “The production team came to us and said that they wanted to start [with Lindsay] right after lunch, which was at 2. They wanted to begin with Lindsay at 3, so that meant she had a lot of time where she wasn’t doing anything. That’s why people didn’t see her. She was then in hair and makeup and began after lunch at 3.”
He adds: “If there was a problem yesterday, 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.”
A well-placed Glee source tells us that despite the tardiness issues 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.”
Lindsay is on the Glee set today finishing up her guest spot.
Why am I not surprised! Maybe Rosie was right?
Here are some new pictures of her in Los Angeles yesterday after her day of filming.
