As we briefly mentioned earlier, poor formerly-drug-addled actress Lindsay Lohan has seen her role on hit-ish ABC dramedy Ugly Betty cut from six episodes to four. And, in fact, E! reports that Lohan will also be cut out of the episodes she's already filmed, as "she was not so interested in creating a character." Yikes. Word is, she was an unpleasant, chain-smoking, diva on set, especially toward the show's star, America Ferrera. Lindsay was pissy and lazy and demanding and the two butted heads, all culminating when it came time to film a big pantsing scence. Yes, pantsing. Reports Page Six:
One episode, titled "Granny Pants," was about how Lohan, playing Betty's high school nemesis, would "de-pants" Ferrera. But Ferrera exacts her revenge and pulls down Lohan's pants instead. "Lindsay wasn't wearing any underwear," the source said. But a Lohan pal fumed, "Bull [bleep]! Lindsay wears underwear all the time now. She was wearing a G-string. And it was America's fault. They were rehearsing the scene and America wasn't supposed to pull Lindsay's pants down - but she did. Lindsay was so embarrassed, she started crying."
So, sigh. Aside from the fact that when a friend "defends" you by saying that you "[wear] underwear all the time now" you just might be the saddest person in the world, it's just... really? These sound like deeply silly problems. Lindsay, m'dear, you were doing so well! No feuds! No druggery! No drunken debacles! You'd even settled down with your nice ladyfriend Samantha Ronson. Why the 180? I guess the great new lesbian hope—a reformed Lindsay, a clean Lindsay, an out loud 'n proud Lindsay—was just a dream some of us had. I mean, it'd be nice to think that LiLo isn't actually completely tainted, at such a young age, by the hideousness of showbiz, that there's still hope yet for a rescue. But, if she can't even act grateful when a sweet dimbulb show like Ugly Betty throws her a plum guest-star bone, in a time when she was damn near unemployable—remember that letter that got her almost booted from Georgia Rule? That was almost. This is definite. Not good—well... maybe she's a lost cause after all. Which means the femme gay community needs a new de facto poster girl. What about that Katy Perry? Oh. Oh right.
