Lindsay Lohan suffered a miscarriage while shooting her reality TV show.
The 27-year-old actress began making the program after she completed her court-ordered rehab stay last year. It airs on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and she had been criticized for refusing to film at times. During last night’s season finale, the star opened up about why she took the decision.
“No one knows this – I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off. It’s a very long story,” she said.
“That’s why on the show when it says she doesn’t want to come down, she doesn’t want to come down, I couldn’t move. I was sick. And mentally that messes with you.”
Lindsay did not mention the identity of the baby’s father.
She did discuss the effect shooting the show has had on her though, admitting she finds it difficult to watch the series.
“Watching this series, I just know how I felt at that moment and I can relate to that girl, which sounds kind of crazy, but I’m like, ‘Oh my god, this is really sad. Who’s helping her?’” she said.
“There was a lot going on in my life then. I cried so many times watching it. Because I don’t see it as me – it’s strange. It’s weird.”
Oprah has not commented on the revelation, which was hinted at during the promotional campaign for the final episode.
Lindsay’s mother Dina Lohan appeared to be tuning in though, taking to Twitter with a short message which has now been deleted: “Oprah call me.”
Also during the episode Lindsay admitted finding addiction terrifying and claimed to have helped people who were suffering with it. She spoke of how much a cleanse with a shaman helped her, claiming she saw her whole life played out in front of her during it.
The star touched on her infamous sex list too, which saw the names of her alleged famous lovers leaked to the press. Stars such as Orlando Bloom and Colin Farrell were on the piece of paper, which the actress revealed she wrote as part of her recovery.
“That was part of my Betty Ford. It’s step number five, or number eight. It’s your sexual inventory and that was in my Betty Ford book, so that was really personal to my sponsor,” she explained.
“When I was moving and I was in the Beverly Hills Hotel there were two people there that helped me move. So someone took a photo. Took that photo and released that.
“And that’s really – that’s something sacred to me. That’s not something that I’d show anyone, besides from my sponsor, who’s also a very well-known person. The fact that happened was not only humiliating, but just mean – it was mean spirited for someone to do that.”
