Producers for Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming OWN reality series want nothing to do with her parents.
According to reports, it was an “executive decision” to ban Michael and Dina Lohan from the show. “Producers were struggling a few weeks back with the show’s direction,” TMZ reports, “and after intense debate decided to not include the ‘Lohan family circus.'”
Despite Lindsay’s rocky relationship with her parents over the years, the actress told Oprah that she doesn’t blame them for any of her poor choices.
“I don’t think anything was intentionally done in that way,” she said during her “Next Chapter” interview last month. “I hate what a bad rap people give my parents. Because they are just parents, really, at the end of the day trying to stand up for their daughter and themselves.”
“Nobody’s perfect,” Lohan added. “I love my parents. And I’m not going to say that certain situation, I would have preferred to have been handled differently. Certain things I would have preferred to have been kept within my family, in private. But that’s in the past.”
As reported earlier, Dina was arrested and charged with a DWI earlier this month.
The eight-episode series, scheduled to debut next year, will focus on Lindsay’s “comeback and recovery.”
