Despite missing her flight from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Friday, April 27 afternoon, Lindsay Lohan is still expected to come to the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday. TMZ claimed that the 25-year-old starlet will catch a later flight, as her representative Steve Honig assured Mail Online, "She will be at the dinner."

When asked about the reason behind Lohan's no show at the LAX airport, Honig replied, "I don't know and who really cares?" The spokeman further stated that the actress, who has been set to portray Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's "Liz & Dick", will be attending with her lawyer Shawn Holley, and added that "she will not be giving a speech."

Also asked to share her thought on report that Lohan missed her flight was Greta van Susteren, who invited the starlet to the annual dinner organized by the White House Correspondents' Association. The Fox News host and former lawyer expressed no worry as she told Politico on Friday, "The dinner isn't until tomorrow."

Per Mail Online, Lohan failed to board the flight to D.C. after enjoying a night of partying at the Chateau Marmont after filming a guest starring role on "Glee". The "Herbie: Fully Loaded" actress allegedly came to the Hollywood hotspot with a friend after midnight and stayed until the earlier hours.

Meanwhile, it was noted that on board of the flight Lohan missed was George Clooney. The leading man of "The Descendants" has also got an invitation to the White House dinner along with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara, Charlize Theron, Josh Hutcherson and Reese Witherspoon.

van Susteren herself has been met with criticism for inviting Lohan to the high profile event. Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain, tweeted on Thursday, "Let me get this straight Greta Van Sustern is bringing Lindsay Lohan to the WHC Dinner but has a moral offense to Louie C.K.?"

Meghan was referring to van Susteren's call for boycott after learning that the comedian would headline the event. van Susteren wrote on her blog at the time, "A media association has hired the pig, Louis C.K., to be their headliner for the big media dinner? Really? I am not going. I refuse to go. Everyone in the media should join me in this boycott."
