Another Scandal-Plagued Star Follows in Sheen’s Footsteps

Charlie Sheen isn’t the only scandal-ridden celebrity who’s taking to television interviews to put out his side of the story.

Following in Sheen’s footsteps is Lindsay Lohan, the New York Post reports. Lohan will appear on the syndicated show "Extra" Tuesday night.

Lohan was interviewed last week, her first sitdown since exiting rehab in January, for a 30-minute one-on-one. Lohan would not discuss her most recent court case on a charge of stealing a necklace in Venice, Calif., but she did declare that she was ready, willing and able to return to work as an actress.

"I miss being on set," she told the show. "I really do miss it. I know there’s going to be a lot of steps I’ll have to go through to prove myself again and get the trust from people I respect to work with. But I’m willing to do what I have to do to get there. I need to prove that I can be insurable again, because I don’t think I am right now."

Lohan also appeared Sunday night on Jimmy Kimmel’s post-Oscars broadcast. In a skit for “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” Lohan made fun of her theft charge, touting an exercise program in a mock infomercial and saying it’s “so affordable it’s practically a steal … allegedly!”
