Two people closely connected to actress Lindsay Lohan have been banned from her new show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network, according to a new report by TMZ.com.
The two people are her parents, Michael and Dina Lohan, the story reports.
The show’s producers "want nothing to do with her parents, and TMZ has learned … an executive decision was made to ban them from the show," the website reports. "Michael and Dina Lohan will NOT film a single scene for the upcoming series. No one will even refer to DiLo’s DWI arrest earlier this month — according to production sources."
Dina Lohan was arrested Sept. 12 on suspicion of drunk driving in Long Island, N.Y., as we reported previously.
"We’re told producers were struggling a few weeks back with the show’s direction … and after intense debate decided to not include the ‘Lohan family circus,’" TMZ adds. "We’re told cameras did capture Michael and Lindsay together on 3 days — but it’s unclear whether that footage will make the final cut … and there won’t be any further shooting with daddy dearest."
The show will focus on Lindsay Lohan’s recovery and comeback, as was its original plan, the piece notes.
Lindsay Lohan, who has a $2 million deal with OWN, recently was confronted by Winfrey, who ordered the actress to focus more on her work on the show, as we reported late last week.
