One of our guilty little pleasures in life is the Regret The Error blog, which collects apologies and and the like from around the media. We were interested, therefore, to see their item on Lindsa Lohan. W magazine is offering an olive branch and "so very sorry" over a - uh, shall we say - misinterpetation of something she may or may not have said in an interview about her mum visiting her car crash father in jail:

Lohan never said that and West is, according to Lohan's representative, ac- knowledging his mistake.
"There will be a correction in next month's issue," Lohan's rep, Leslie Sloane, said. "Kevin West took down the wrong notes and inferred something about [mother] Dina and her kids visiting him in jail. No, they haven't visited and neither does Dina want to - she has nine orders of protection out against him. Michael and the children only speak occasionally on Mondays when he calls."

Under those circumstances, it's not entirely clear how you might come away with the impression that mom was popping in on pop at all. Very curious.

More curious, though, is RTE's releated glance at Lohan's battle with Vanity Fair:

It quoted her talking frankly about an eating disorder. "I was making myself sick," she said. "I had people sit me down and say, 'You're going to die if you don't take care of yourself'."
After the article appeared, she released a statement to Teen People: "The words that I gave to the writer for Vanity Fair were misused and misconstrued, and I'm appalled with the way it was done. Aside from [the writer's] lies and changing of my words, I am blessed to have this job and wonderful family that I do."
Too bad for Lohan: Vantiy Fair had it all on tape. No correction.

The real curiosity here is that Lohan is not noted for her orotund style - indeed, aside from when she introduces herself, she barely gets beyond one syllable at a time - and yet all these journalists find themselves confused about what she's saying. Perhaps it's the dazzling beauty of her eyes distracting them.
