The guest list is always a star-filled yet sometimes controversial part of the WHCD each year. Even stars like Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian have attended in previous years as guests of Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. In fact, Tom Brokaw criticized the WHCD in 2013 after he said the hype around Lindsay Lohan's attendance seemed to outshine the event itself.
