Lindsay Lohan is back again on TV Monday night, performing a flaky, oblivious, spoiled New York rich girl, character on the CBS hit sitcom “2 Broke Girls.”
The actress performed a substantial role in the show, playing a woman named Claire who was preoccupied with wedding jitters and whose deeper problems seemed more lifelong.
“We met Claire when she showed up at the cupcake window run by Max (Kat Dennings) and Caroline (Beth Behrs) in the back of the Brooklyn diner where they work,” The New York Daily News writes.
“It turns out Claire’s fiancé had proposed to her by putting a ring on top of one of Max’s red velvet cupcakes, and even though Claire swallowed the ring, she decided she wanted Max to bake her wedding cake.”
Max had at his disposal three days only, which appeared to good, as the Lohan’s character had an annoying habit of saying “Wait, now I’m thinking . . .” and changing her mind every 20 or 30 minutes.
And finally Claire settled on a cake, which other characters carried to the wedding on the subway, but when the train stopped suddenly Caroline’s arm went through the second layer. Max patched it up with some Styrofoam from Radio Shack.
But when they finally got to the wedding, the wedding organizer told them Claire announced that she wouldn’t leave her room and that no one got paid, including the cake baker, until Claire walked down the aisle.
Max and Caroline barged into Claire’s dressing room, where she refused to choose a wedding dress. As she started to take the last one off, she said, “It’s not for me. Like underwear.”
“After Claire walked out, Max put on a wedding dress and veil and walked down the aisle, hoping to fool everyone long enough for Caroline to get their $1,300 check,” describes the scene The New York Daily News.
“Just as Max’s veil was about to be lifted, Claire popped in and said she wanted to get married after all. And she did. Happily, Claire held none of this against Max and Caroline, since she never paid any attention to anything that was said or done by anyone other than herself,” the publication adds.
When Max and Caroline had a short dance after the ceremony, Claire came over and said, “Wait, now I’m thinking I might be into girls.”
Claire’s only backstory was that she had a lot of money, could talk her fiancé into anything, and for a year she ran a New York dress shop called Get the Frock Out.
It was a tough year, she said: “There was a gang shooting in front of the shop. I had to bury two mannequins.” Max suggested that next time she paint a tear on their faces and give them to Banana Republic.
Stories surfaced during the filming of the episode that Lohan was being difficult. Both Dennings and Behrs tweeted that this was “total b-s” and that she was delightful, prepared and professional.
