If Lindsay Lohan
's approach to the April 28 White House Correspondents' Dinner is any indication of her approach to her Hollywood comeback, there could be trouble. Ever since Judge Sautner warned the actress, 25, to "stop nightclubbing," Lohan has created nonstop drama, whether missing her flight to D.C. after going out the previous night till 5 a.m. or arriving late for a guest spot on Glee
, which has yet to air. While her partying past was cause for concern for producer Larry Thompson, who cast her as Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime biopic Liz and Dick

SO LONG, HOUSEWIVES
BEFORE THEY SIGN OFF MAY 13, THE WISTERIA LANE WOMEN LOOK BACK ON EIGHT SEASONS OF MADCAP MELODRAMA
Bree Van de Kamp
Who do you think will cry the most on the last day of filming?
Me. When I was 15 in a community-theater production, I was under the table sobbing. I'm still that girl.
Who's the best cook?
Eva's the best cook, and Teri is the best baker. I am the worst.
What's next for you?
I've already promised my daughters [twins Eden and Savannah, 5] that at school next year, I will be the class mom.
What will you miss most about your costars?
Felicity's a rock I leaned on daily for advice, especially after my divorce [from NBA player Tony Parker]. Marcia is the warm and fuzzy therapist. And I'm going to miss Teri's banana nut bread.
I'm producing a few TV shows. I want to travel-and sleep later than 5:30 a.m.!
Want any set mementos?
I think Gabby's Aston Martin will slip into my purse!
I have no idea. I'll probably be opening malls across Middle America.
Taking anything from the set?
Nothing. That would be illegal. Disney owns every last sock.
After reinventing myself from Lois [Lane on TV's Superman show Lois & Clark], which many thought couldn't be done, there are a million things for me beyond Housewives
. But I will always be grateful-this show changed my life.
