According to the folks that matter in the biz, Lindsay Lohan did a FAB job on Saturday!
As reported earlier, critics didn't care for LiLo's SNL hosting spot this weekend despite really good ratings.
Well, it looks like the folks who can actually GIVE Lindsay a job don't really care what the critics think!
A source said the following about LiLo's hosting buzz:
She got slammed on Twitter and Facebook and all over social media. But the people who actually can give her jobs — at least the ones I talked to — said she did a fine job and had several truly funny moments.
Everyone's beef came down to Lindsay's cue card reading. While some gave her the benefit of the doubt, other couldn't look past it.
While movie execs are putting the pieces in place to nab Lindsay up for her comeback, a close friend to LiLo said the proof of her return will be in the Elizabeth Taylor pudding, stating the following:
[It] will come from how she does with that Elizabeth Taylor Lifetime film and other projects that are said to be in the works. Lindsay is a talented actress and as long as she stays sober, she’ll be great.
Sounds fair to us. She's got a prove herself a bit more before the world welcomes her back with open arms. But we think she gets that … unlike her parents!
Dina and Michael Lohan were also causing a stir behind the scenes. LiLo's mamie was running all around, gushing over her daughter's performance though she complained about Linds' cue card "placement."
Michael tried to call his daughter but her team wasn't having it, blocking the call from her.
Let's see if any new jobs open for LiLo in the future!
