Michael Lohan sneaks onto Celebrity Apprentice

Michael Lohan made it onto NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice, after all.

We reported exclusively back in October that Lindsay Lohan's controversial evangelist dad was Donald Trump's personal pick to be one of the quasi-celebrities competing for a place at his feet, but that NBC lawyers put the kibosh on the idea because Lohan remains on parole. Lohan's pal, The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas actor-turned-skateboard evangelist Stephen Baldwin jumped in to take his place.

Well, the lawyers might not have realized, but Lohan appeared on the episode that aired last night.

In a segment ridiculing Baldwin's inability to attract even the most tangential celebrity to appear at a charity event, the Brylcremed Born Again is seen on his cell phone asking, "Where's Lindsay?"

Lohan's distinctive voice is heard to reply (without skipping a beat):

"She's in L.A."

Lohan's cameo comes amid word that his wild reality series, billed as the counterpart and antidote to his ex-wife Dina's exploitative show, may be back in play.

I don't buy it. Michael Lohan was never going to appear on Celebrity Apprentice, regardless of what they may have told him. Even the participant on the show with the weakest claim to celebrity, Omarosa, had at least been on a TV reality show previously. Michael Lohan? I'm not sure many people outside L.A. would even know he exists.
