First Look: Lindsay Lohan’s Reality Show on Oprah’s Network

Lindsay Lohan

Word about Lindsay Lohan's upcoming reality show initially surfaced when Oprah was rumored to have problems dealing with the troubled star, but things have been unusually quiet for Lohan otherwise (with all the Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, and Kardashian stories lately - who can blame her for taking a back seat in the tabloids?). Naturally, to drum up some publicity for her series, OWN - Oprah's network which is both behind and set to air the project - has released a photo of Lohan to promote it.

Taken as if someone were either creepily lurking Lohan from a corner or simply catching a private-yet-candid photo, the 27-year-old has got her serious model face on, with her hair perfectly coiffed and styled to the T.

The Kennedys Miniseries to Air After All

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Drama, Mini Series, Specials, Cable, Gossip, Video,

 


… but, the History Channel still isn’t going to touch it.

The much-talked-about Kennedys miniseries, which was created by the History Channel and (allegedly) pulled off TV by the Kennedy family, will make it to US households after all. Mmm … some of them, anyway.

No major networks were bold enough to accept the series, but the cable ReelzChannel will begin showing The Kennedys starting on April 3rd.

If you’ve never heard of that channel, you aren’t alone. The website has a helpful locator so you can find out how to get it ... and then, you’ll finally have the chance to see Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy. Honestly, it’s hard to hold a grudge against the Kennedy clan for trying to put a stop to that.
