Hiring Lindsay Lohan is clearly a high-risk, high-reward endeavor.
The last month made that abundantly clear, but which way will it break for Lifetime? That remains to be seen, but she's got the Liz & Dick producers spooked.
Having hired Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, the network received more publicity than they could've dreamed ... but not always for the reasons they'd like.
Understandably, higher-ups are upset and worried over her car accident and the recent episode in which she passed out so hard people had to call 911.
Three weeks into filming, producers are fearing the following:
- That the company who insured Lindsay Lohan might bail
- That her probation will be violated for lying to police
- That she will get into yet another bad car accident
- That she'll surround herself with the wrong people
- That her exhaustion was a warning sign
On the flip side, if the worst case scenario doesn't happen ... think about all the PR she's getting! Has anyone ever talked this much about a Lifetime film?
Okay, the one in which LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian decided to be home wreckers was kinda big ... as was the one starring Jennifer Love Hewitt's breasts.
LiLo could blow them both out of the water, though ... if she doesn't completely self-destruct. The million-dollar question: Can she keep it together?!
