Lindsay Lohan's Latest Humiliation
"Lindsay Lohan got some reel bad news this week: Her new movie, Labor Pains, is headed straight to cable.
The film`s production company, Nu Image/Millennium Films, has confirmed that the comedy will premiere on ABC Family in July 2009. It will be released on DVD a month later.
In the film -- which wrapped last August -- Lohan plays a woman who fakes being pregnant to save herself from being fired. She must then keep the lie going for nine months." http://www.usmagazine.com/news/lindsay-lohans-new-movie-goes-straight-to-cable-2009263
An established actress spends many months working long days filming a movie with the expectation and hopes that the payoff will be a blockbuster hit playing in thousands of screens.
It is the ultimate humiliation for a famous actress to have her movie head straight to cable. To make things worse Lohan`s film isn`t going to a premier cable station like HBO or Showtime, but to the obscure ABC Family.
It`s ironic that the skanky starlet`s latest movie has been picked up by a family-friendly network. When I think of Lohan`s panty-less antics and her drunken shenanigans in night clubs, the word "family-friendly" doesn`t come to mind.
This humiliation may be Lohan`s last wake-up call, if this doesn`t convince her to turn her life and career around, nothing will.
