Lindsay Lohan has come to the defence of her mother Dina, insisting she has never been a party girl. The Mean Girls star has been fighting her own battles with drug and alcohol addiction, and many were quick to point out that her mum Dina was the driving force behind her troubled ways.
However, during an interview on U.S. talk show Watch What Happens Live on Thursday (17Apr14), Lohan defended her mother, who was booked for DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) and speeding last September (13).
She explains, "My mum doesn't drink. That's (Dina's hardcore partying) never been true. It's really interesting how people perceive it and what gets told, because if anything, she's gone out with me because I've forced her to come out with me.
"It's just a security blanket. the trust in there. I have a cool mom. And she had me at a very young age. Thank God for that though because she's my best friend."
Lindsay also insists she has mended ties with her estranged father, Michael Lohan, and even opened up about their strained relationship on her reality TV series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, Lindsay, but most of it was cut out.
She added, "I love my dad - but my dad is my dad... He was on the outs. He's gone through a lot in his life. Insider trading...
"There's a lot of things that have happened in my life that they don't show. I was a lot more honest on the show, like about my entire life story."
With the series finale airing in America on Sunday (20Apr14), Lohan insists she has no remorse over her candid interviews throughout the course of the programme.
She adds, "I don't regret it at all. Oprah's literally been a blessing to me as a friend, a mentor and I can actually say I can call Oprah whenever I need to. It's been nice to just show who I am as a person. So that people can actually see the chaos that comes in and comes out."
A representative for Oprah Winfrey's cable network has dismissed reports suggesting Lindsay Lohan's reality TV show has been cancelled, insisting the deal was for just one season of the programme. The Mean Girls star has been giving fans an insight into her life in Lindsay, which has been documenting her struggles as she settles in her native New York following a court-ordered rehab stay in California last summer (13).
Rumours recently surfaced suggesting Winfrey was not interested in renewing the show for a second season due to low ratings after less than 700,000 viewings tuned in for its premiere in March (14).
However, a spokesperson for OWN has now cleared up the claims, telling Eonline.com, "Rumours that it is being cancelled are untrue."
A source adds: "The intention was always to do eight episodes. The show is not being cancelled."
The news comes after Lohan confessed to breaking her sobriety pact by drinking wine during a recent episode of Lindsay. The show has also featured the actress arguing with her estranged father, Michael, and she was also chastised by Winfrey in one episode after continually delaying production on the docu-series.

We all know the saying about how you can't pick your relatives but you can pick your friends. Unfortunately, in high school, most people are limited to those other poor souls that are slouching through the halls to get from class to class.
Every teen movie made has seemingly adhered to some form of the cliques that occur in high school, those groupings based on looks, interests or intelligence that make up the social caste system. What if, however, you could make your own clique, using characters from those films that fit into those stereotypical profiles? It would certainly have made for a more entertaining high school experience, as well as at least one killer party. Who would we pick? Here's our choices...

Actress Lindsay Lohan has shot down rumours suggesting she has ditched her sober coach after completing filming on her reality TV show. Michael Cormier has been helping the Mean Girls star settle back into life in her native New York after moving from Los Angeles last summer (13), following the completion of a court-ordered 90-day rehab stay, and he has been featured beside Lohan in episodes of her docu-series Lindsay, which began airing on America's Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) earlier this month (Mar14).
A report posted on RadarOnline.com this week (ends21Mar14) claimed the actress had cut ties with Cormier since filming wrapped, but Lohan has since hit back at the allegations.
She blasted website editors in a post on her Twitter.com blog on Thursday (21Mar14), writing, "Haven't seen Michael since filming? Then who is this guy I JUST saw 2 days ago? Sort ya life @radar_online (sic)".
She then shared a link to an Instagram snap of herself and the sober coach posing with a friend that she had initially uploaded earlier this week (begs17Mar14).
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan tells her father she wants nothing to do with his new family in the latest episode of her reality TV show. The Mean Girls actress and her dad Michael have endured a turbulent relationship in the past and while they are back on speaking terms, they are shown clashing over matters including money and family in Lohan's new series Lindsay.
In the episode of the show which aired in the U.S. on Sunday (16Mar14), Lohan is seen arguing with Michael after he tells the actress he cannot afford to buy her younger brother Cody a car because of his other children's needs.
Michael has an eight-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, as well as 13-month-old son with his fiancee Kate Major, but Lohan interrupts him and refuses to let him talk about her half-siblings, saying, "Oh stop it. I don't want to talk about that... I don't want to talk about your other two random f**king kids... They're not a part of my family and they never will be."
Following the scene, she says in an interview, "My dad has a whole another (sic) life that he lives with these other people that he's created. That I don't want to be a part of my life."
Casting is one of the most important and mysterious parts of filmmaking. Not only are actors selected based on their chemistry, skill, and buzz, there is also a whole mess of behind-the-scenes coordination. Actors have missed out on major career-defining roles for all sorts of reasons. Iconic roles like Indiana Jones, Wolverine, and Marty McFly all had different original actors. Careers, film history, and even a major celebrity marriage have all been forever altered by casting changes. Some actors have missed out on A-list careers. Here are a few of the most shocking movie casting changes.

Lindsay Lohan's father has been slapped with a $1 million (£625,000) lawsuit over a failed Girls Gone Wild project. Richard Reitano claims 53-year-old Michael Lohan approached him with an idea to dub over Girls Gone Wild videos in Spanish in 2009, and asked him to invest $100,000 (£62,500) in the venture, according to TMZ.com.
Lohan reportedly told Reitano that Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis had given him the rights to the clips and he just needed $25,000 (£15,625) to start the process.
However, according to the lawsuit, Lohan never had rights to the videos and the project never came to fruition.
Reitano is now seeking the $25,000 back plus $1 million.
Lindsay Lohan is scolded by Oprah Winfrey in the first episode of her new reality show after the TV titan discovers the tardy actress has been delaying production. The Mean Girls star signed up to make an eight-part documentary series for Winfrey's OWN network following their candid interview after Lohan left rehab last summer (13).
The show is scheduled to air in America this month (Mar14), but a newly-released trailer highlights how close Winfrey came to shutting down the project after hearing about Lohan's failure to stick to filming rules.
The chat show legend visits the 27 year old at her New York City apartment to lay down the law, telling her, "My truth is that I really do want you to win, I really do. If that isn't what you want, I'm OK with that. I will tell (the crew) to pack up and leave today. You need to cut the bulls**t. You really do."
The footage also features Lohan crying and demanding the crew delete an entire day's worth of filming, and she is shown in a face-off with her father Michael Lohan.
The series, entitled Lindsay, will begin airing on Sunday (09Mar14).
Lindsay Lohan's future stepmother Kate Major has apologised for falsely accusing the actress' dad Michael of threatening her with a knife following a dispute at the couple's Florida home on Monday (17Feb14). Police were called to their Boca Raton property late on Monday to investigate reports of a domestic disturbance and Major raised fears for her safety and that of their young son Landon after posting a series of headline-grabbing accusations on Twitter.com as the fight escalated.
In the worrying tweets, Major claimed Michael Lohan had a knife and was trying to take their one-year-old baby away from her - but he challenged the claims with his own version of events on his Twitter page, insisting he was the one who had called the emergency services, adding, "All I want is for her (Major) to get help so she can be there for our wonderful son. Maybe this will do it."
Now Major has publicly retracted her allegations, blaming fear for prompting her to lie about the seriousness of the situation.
In a statement issued to UsMagazine.com, she writes, "I regretfully tweeted while my emotions were high that I was being threatened by Michael with a knife; this was not the case.
"I made a lot of statements on Twitter that were merely out of fear that he was going to take my son from me. Please respect our privacy through this difficult time."
Major has since deleted the false accusations from her Twitter page, and she has since returned to the blog to declare: "I love Landon & nothing will ever change that or take that from me!!!! I should not have tweeted anything. This has all turned into a whirlwind. I'm sorry."
The embattled couple became engaged in 2010. Lohan divorced Lindsay's mother Dina in 2007.
Lindsay Lohan's father Michael Lohan reportedly had a brush with police on Monday night (17Feb14) following an alleged bust-up with his fiancee Kate Major. Cops were called to the couple's home in Boca Raton, Florida to investigate reports of an alleged domestic disturbance, according to TMZ.com.
Both Lohan and Major, who are parents to a young son named Landon, have ranted about the incident in a series of posts on Twitter.com, with the actress' father claiming he was the one who called the emergency services.
He writes, "All I want is for her to get help so she can be there for our wonderful son. Maybe this will do it."
