Oh Linds


She was the headline-grabbing judge when the series launched in 2019 but now the actress reveals why she won’t be joining the Channel 10 show in 2021

Lindsay Lohan has confirmed to TV Blackbox that she will not be taking part in series 3 of The Masked Singer, which is set to begin filming in early July.

The loss of Lohan for series two led to a sharp decline in viewers. with the premiere episode down 37% from 1.2 million in 2019 to 733,000 in 2020. In overnight figures the season average in the 5 cap cities was 928k in 2019 compared to 816k in 2020 (that’s a drop of 12% year on year).

Speaking to TV Blackbox contributor Abbey Mikkelsen, Lindsay has blamed the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions for her absence from the upcoming series, saying:

[blockquote]“We couldn’t do it again due to COVID still! But I’m sure they will have a nice season!”[/blockquote]

Anyone entering Australia currently has to isolate for 14 days in hotel quarantine but other international stars taking part in local reality TV shows have gone through that process.

It is not clear whether Lindsay chose not to undergo quarantine or if 10 was not willing to foot the bill. 

Late last year Lindsay told us she would be returning for series 3, saying:

“I will be back in Australia for season 3”

Now that she is not returning, Lindsay indicated she could still return to the series at a future date saying:

“Maybe next year!”

Lohan is set to start production on a Netflix Christmas special in November, which will be available in 2022. Her involvement in that production would not have affected her involvement with this season of The Masked Singer.

Speculation is rife about which stars are taking part in the series, with TV Blackbox readers believing they uncovered an international celebrity who is currently in quarantine.

Lohan to Return to Acting by Starring in Netflix Christmas Romantic Comedy (EXCLUSIVE)

Lindsay Lohan, who has largely foregone acting in recent years, will soon star in a yet-to-be-titled Netflix holiday rom-com. The streamer has made a robust business out of Christmas fare, and its original movies such as “Jingle Jangle,” “A Christmas Prince,” “The Christmas Chronicles” and “The Princess Switch” (inspired by Lohan’s “The Parent Trap”) have become instant (and repeatable) holiday classics.

In this new movie, Lohan will play a “newly engaged, spoiled hotel heiress” (according to the logline), who gets amnesia after a skiing accident and “finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter in the days leading up to Christmas.” The rest of the cast has not yet been announced.

Lohan skyrocketed to fame as an 11-year-old actor, starring in a 1998 reboot of “The Parent Trap.” She followed that with a remake of “Freaky Friday” and “Mean Girls;” both roles cemented her status as an A-list star. After years of being hounded by paparazzi and the tabloids because of personal issues — ones that made her uninsurable for a time because of her chronic absences  — Lohan withdrew from acting by degrees, starting in the early 2010s. She eventually moved abroad, living in both Europe and Dubai.

She’s launched projects sporadically since, such as being the only good thing in Paul Schrader’s 2013 movie, “The Canyons;” appearing in a West End production of “Speed-the-Plow” in 2014; recurring on the British TV comedy “Sick Note” in 2018; starring in the MTV reality show “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” in 2019; and later that year, appearing as a judge on the Australian version of “The Masked Singer.”

On CNN’s New Year’s Eve special in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic would press pause on the world, Lohan told hosts Anderson Cooper and Andy Cohen that she wanted to “come back to America and start filming again,” and “taking back the life that I worked so hard for, and sharing it with my family and you guys.”

The Netflix movie starts production in November, so it won’t be for 2021 holiday viewing — audiences will receive this Yuletide present at a time to be announced later.

Janeen Damian (Hallmark Channel’s “A Christmas Waltz”) will direct, and it was written by Damian, Michael Damian, Jeff Bonnett and Ron Oliver. Its producers are MPCA’s Brad Krevoy and Riviera Films’ Michael Damian. MPCA is behind such Netflix Christmas movies as the “A Christmas Prince” franchise, “Operation Christmas Drop” and the forthcoming “A Castle for Christmas.” (And fun fact: Michael Damian was a longtime star of the CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” and in 1989, had a No. 1 single: “Rock On,” from the “Dream a Little Dream” soundtrack.”)

Executive producers for Lohan’s Netflix movie are Amanda Phillips and Eric Jarboe.

‘The Perfect Place To Kick Things Off’: Lindsay Lohan Wants To Make Her Hollywood Comeback By Hosting ‘SNL,’ Reveals Insider

No joke! Lindsay Lohan is dying to return to the spotlight, and she’s set her sights on a hosting gig at Saturday Night Live to kickstart her comeback, an insider tells OK!

After a long spell of living in far-flung locations like Greece and Dubai, Lohan, 34, “wants to make movies and TV shows in the States again,” the insider says. 

The former child star, whose career peaked with 2004’s Mean Girls before it got derailed by drug and alcohol abuse, hosted the late-night sketch show multiple times during her Hollywood heyday. (The last was in 2012 when she gamely poked fun at her infamous bad girl past.)  “The people at the top of SNL have always left their doors open for Lohan. It would be the perfect place to kick things off if someone there gets behind her again, the way [Mean Girls writer and costar] Tina Fey did,” the insider explains. “But there’s a lot of nervousness on Lindsay’s part. Hosting SNL could be the magic bullet — as long as she doesn’t mess it up and fall flat on her face!”

While Lohan may be ambitious, she doesn’t the best track record when it comes to projects she’s undertaken. Last year, it was reported that she was being sued by HarperCollins for a book that she promised to write. 

The publishing company allegedly paid her $365,000 in advance in 2014, but when the time came to deliver on the project, Lohan didn’t have anything to show. “The Defendants failed to deliver a complete manuscript for the Work to the Plaintiff by the contractually agreed upon deadline and to this day they have failed to deliver a complete manuscript,” the lawsuit filed in the New York Supreme Court stated. 

The original agreement, signed in 2014, stated that Lohan will hand over a manuscript in 2015, but a year later, no book had been produced, so both companies decided to push the release date back to 2017. That advance has yet to be paid back to the publisher, according to the lawsuit, and now the “Rumors” singer could be on the hook for a little over $1 million.

Letterman’s 2013 Interview with Lindsay stirs backlash as fans rediscover video

The release of the documentary Framing Britney Spears, which paid special attention to the capricious media treatment she received throughout her career, has led many to reflect on the sexism some of her contemporaries endured around that time.

In particular, a 2013 interview between David Letterman and Lindsay Lohan has drawn criticism from users on TikTok and Twitter, who are now calling out the talk show host for probing into the actress’s personal life.

“Now, aren’t you supposed to be in rehab?” the former Late Show host asked Lohan, who appeared on the show to promote an upcoming film.

After revealing the date she was set to enter rehab, the host followed up with a rapid slew of questions about her recovery, including how many times she’s been to rehab and how this time will be different.

“What are they rehab-ing? What is on their list? What are they going to work on when you walk through the door?” Letterman continued, to laughter from the audience.

Lohan, visibly uncomfortable, said that the topic of rehab was not broached in the pre-interview, but allowed that rehab would be an “opportunity to focus on what I love in life.”

But Letterman continued to prod, asking if she had “addiction problems” and if she was going to rehab for alcohol use.

“You can’t make a joke of it, that’s so mean,” the actress responded.

“This is vile on so many levels. The misogyny. The blindsiding. The stigma of addiction & rehab,” producer Frank Costa commented. “The hypocrisy of wanting people to recover, but then judging how they choose do so. I hope Lindsay Lohan knows how loved she is. The world has treated her and many others so unfairly.”

At the end of the segment, which another Twitter user highlighted in a clip, Letterman praised Lohan for being able to go on the show and sit through his comments. Letterman’s reps did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.

Another commenter said that Letterman’s 2004 interview with Janet Jackson “gives off the same vibes.” In the video, the host repeatedly pressed her on her Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction, despite her apparent discomfort. The resurfaced Letterman interviews come in stark contrast to another late-night host’s monologue that’s been making the social media rounds since the release of Framing Britney Spears. Social media users have revisited a Late Late Show clip from 2007, wherein former host Craig Ferguson explained why he wouldn’t be making light of Spears’ personal life, telling his audience, “We shouldn’t be attacking the vulnerable people.”

Meanwhile, due to public scrutiny surrounding the documentary, the #FreeBritney movement, and his past comments about Spears and Jackson, Justin Timberlake issued an apology to both women on Friday.

“I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system of misogyny and racism,” the singer-actor wrote in a statement posted to his Instagram. “I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”

Lindsay Lohan Encourages Fan to Come Out to Her Parents With Heartfelt Message

Cameo isn’t just for birthday messages these days.

Over the weekend, one young woman named Alana used the video sharing website in hopes that one Hollywood star would deliver a personal message.

“I asked Lindsay Lohan to come out to my parents for me in a Cameo and she did make the video,” Alana explained on TikTok. “It’s not what I expected at all.”

What came next was Lindsay’s video with a heartfelt message about speaking one’s truth on one’s own terms.

“Hi Alana, it’s Lindsay Lohan,” she began. “I know that you are about to take a very big step in telling your parents who you truly are and what you want them to accept of you and I think you should do it yourself.”

Lindsay continued, “I think that coming from you, you’ll feel a lot of power and strength and it’s important that you are who you truly are and that you love yourself and that you can live by that and tell your parents that. I promise you they will understand.” The 34-year-old actress went on to send Alana “all the love in the world and strength and support.”

“God bless you,” she added. “Stay true to yourself. You’re truly beautiful and god speed.”

While the TikTok user has yet to update fans on whether she came out to her parents, her video from Lindsay has quickly gone viral with more than 70,000 likes.

As for Lindsay, it’s no secret that the Mean Girls star has had some relationships play out in the public eye including romances with Samantha Ronson and Wilmer Valderrama.
But back in September 2019, the singer threw fans for a loop when she broke up with a boyfriend nobody knew she had.

“Actually, I was seeing someone and we broke up today,” Lindsay shared on KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O Show. “You wouldn’t even know who he was but I had a bit of a day.”

Perhaps some experiences can be kept private after all.
