Vanessa Williams Defends Lindsay Lohan

Vanessa Williams is defending Lindsay Lohan after the news that her role was cut short on Ugly Betty due to attitude problems.

As we reported previously, Lindsay’s role on the show was cut from six episodes to four, fueling speculation that she was acting like a diva on set. But Vanessa insists it’s not true, and that Lindsay was nothing but professional on set.

She says, "That’s what the press does, that’s what gossip’s about, and media is about. I had a few scenes with Lindsay. She was a hard worker, she showed up on time and in the scenes I had with her, she was completely prepared. In terms of me working with Lindsay, she was professional, she knew her lines and she was great with me."

We can’t understand why the show execs would cut Lindsay’s part short especially since she got promoted to associate editior in last night's episode. She’s obviously a ratings-booster and they obviously had plans to keep her around. Do you believe Vanessa?
