Producers on Lindsay Lohan's upcoming reality series reportedly do not want her parents to be part of the show. According to TMZ, the show's execs have decided, after intense debate, not to include the "Lohan family circus" in the eight-part docu-series that will air on Oprah Winfrey's OWN.
It's not clear why producers ban Michael and Dina Lohan from the show, but production sources say that the show will stick to its original focus, which is the recently sober star's "comeback and recovery" after she completed her court-ordered rehab stint in late July.
To RadarOnline.com, Michael insists he will be featured on Lindsay's reality show. "It is total BS that I am not part of Lindsay's show, I have filmed three episodes already," he claims. "I imagine I'm going to be shooting more too."
Saying that Dina has also been filmed for the reality show, Michael adds, "I would imagine everyone in the family will be shooting more. This is reality TV and we're a real part of Lindsay's life. That may be right, wrong, or indifferent, that may be positive or negative, but we're all a part of her life and that will be shown. I would imagine production wants to make this as real as possible and that includes her family."
TMZ learns that Michael indeed has been filmed with Lindsay together on 3 days, but it's unclear if the footage will make the final cut. The site also reports that the family patriarch won't be asked to film for the show anymore.
