Hey, did you hear that Lindsay Lohan like totally ruined the White House Correspondents' Dinner? I know, you're like, the what, the who?! It's a big event that's held every year for journalists. I bet out of all the things Lindsay can legit be blamed for ruining -- her face, her career -- the WHCD probably wasn't the first thing that springs to mind. But according to Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw, he's NOT going to this year's dinner because LiLo was at last year's. Harumphs Tom: "The breaking point for me was Lindsay Lohan. She became a big star at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Give me a break."
Er, Tom seems a little out of it. Lindsay has been a star since she was about 12. Of course, she's more famous now for ruining things -- cars, relationships -- than acting, but still. Anyway, Tom has a point. Lindsay is responsible for the ruination of SO many things. Let's take a look at eight of them.
The economy. Politicos can debate over whether it was Bush or Obama who killed the economy, but we know it was LiLo. She hasn't had a hit movie since Mean Girls in 2004. Right around the time the economy tanked! Coinkidink? I think not!
Liz Taylor's Legacy. Liz & Dick. Need I say more?
The penal system. Does anyone take it seriously anymore given how many times Lindsay has escaped the clink?
The Wanted. Has it ever been the same since Linds hooked up with Max George?
The Parent Trap. That was such a cute movie, but now we all watch it in horror, knowing what's to come.
Alcohol-monitoring bracelets. Those things used to be so cool.
Saturday Night Live. Just that episode, really.
The environment. I'm sure she has something to do with it.
What else do you think Lindsay ruined?
