“Lindsay” Pilot Episode Recap:
At its pilot episode, the show has revealed shocking truths about Lohan. E! News managed to narrow down the essence of the show into five observations. First, Oprah did not have too much exposure on the show’s first run. She was shown in the beginning when she advised Lohan not to travel yet because it has only been four days since the former child actress went out of rehab. Second, Lohan’s sober coach Michael Cormier appeared in this episode. The coach also agreed that it would not be good for Lohan to travel even if it is a business trip. Third, Lohan moved to New York to start anew and be with her family. She then decided to stay with her mom until she finds a place of her own. Fourth, Lohan had some difficulty looking for a new place to live in. An apartment manager even asked her for $10 million worth of insurance policy before he hands Lohan the keys to the place that she was interested in. Fifth, aside from the apartment hunt woes, Lohan discussed her issues with the director for the lingerie shoot.
“Lindsay” Pilot Episode Review:
