Lindsay Lohan: I Was Pregnant And Miscarried While Shooting Reality Show
By Mack Rawden 12 months ago
Lindsay Lohan spent damn near the entire first season of her OWN reality show, Lindsay, pissing everyone off. She missed scheduled shoots. She occasionally refused to participate, and at one point, Oprah Winfrey herself told the actress to cut the bullshit. Well, last night Lohan finally addressed her own behavior, and if she’s to be believed, she had a pretty good excuse for being so difficult: she was pregnant and later miscarried mid-season.
The bombshell came out last night on the season finale of Lindsay, and since then, it’s been widely covered by everyone from The New York Daily News to TMZ. The majority of outlets seem to be treating it as a legitimate news story, but in comment sections, on Twitter and in various skeptical corners of the Internet, people aren’t necessarily ready to take her at her word. In fact, there are some who believe this is just the latest in a long line of trademark Lindsay Lohan excuses.
You can take a look at an excerpt of her exact quote below…
“No one knows this. I had a miscarriage for those weeks that I took off. I couldn’t move. I was sick. Mentally, that messes with you.”
The truth is we don’t know. Lohan refused to identify the father or even how far along she may have been. At no point during the filming of the show did she look like she was pregnant or suffer any kind of unexplained weight gain, but they didn’t exactly zoom in on her stomach repeatedly. Unless she opens up about the situation more publicly in the future, it’s likely she’ll always have both supporters and doubters on this issue, but considering the Lindsay Lohan M.O., she should be very comfortable with that arrangement by now.
At this point, it’s unclear whether or not Lindsay will get a second season. When the arrangement was first announced, it was widely assumed the business relationship between Lohan and Oprah Winfrey would go on indefinitely, but with ratings that aren’t exactly blowing the roof off OWN and the well-documented production problems, the future is now up in the air.
At this point, we’ll choose to take the actress at her word. So, as such, our sincerest thoughts go out to Lindsay Lohan during this time of need. Here’s to hoping she gets over this mental blow and uses it as fuel to get back on a path less fraught with uncomfortable headlines and James Franco sex acts.
