Julie's OT rant

On the final episode of "Living Lohan" on E!, Ali Lohan is given an audition for a feature film, "Troll." She is sent the full script to read and whines and complains about preparing the scene she will need to read at the audition. She is seen on camera trying to get out of auditioning by claiming (to her family) that she doesn't feel well. Mom, Dina, and Nanna drive her to the audition where she meets with the casting director, the Director of the film, and one of the Producers. Before she starts, the director asks her if she has any questions about the character and this is her response:

Ali: "What's really like the main plot?"
Director: Is it complicated?
Ali: "I mean, a little, from my perspective because I don't really know it..."

What???? Most actresses would kill for an opportunity to audition for a feature film and this young girl goes into her audition unprepared. It's so insulting. Dina, her mother, says later in the episode that any good director should be able to see talent whether the actress knows her lines, or not. What???? What kind of stupid comment is that? There are so many talented actors in Hollywood who train, take classes, know how to read and understand scripts, and go into auditions thoroughly prepared. This reality show is just setting another bad example for young, aspiring actors who think that they don't have to put in the time and work it takes to compete in this business. Most people don't have a famous sibling or their own reality show which might impress a director looking for a "name" celebrity to cast in his film to help it get distribution. Every time Dina Lohan says that Ali is becoming successful because she is talented and works hard, I just want to gag. Please, spend a day with me or any of my talented friends and we'll show you hard work, training, and loads of talent!

Ugh!

Ali Lohan to Porn Legend: Put Me In Your Flick!
Posted Jul 29th 2008 1:20PM by TMZ Staff

In her desperate pursuit of superstardom, Ali Lohan has officially embarked on the hardcore road many wannabe celebs have traveled on -- a casting session with a legendary porno director! Who's ready for their close-up!?

Alright, so it wasn't a porn gig she was hoping to land on Sunday night's episode of "Living Lohan," but one of the two guys Ali was auditioning for is Peter Davy, whose vast array of critically acclaimed spanktra-flicks includes "Breast Wishes 14" and "Bun Busters 12."

Although Davy's newest film is mainstream horror, the sultan of smut is most famous for discovering the porn star Houston, aka the chick who got down with more than 620 guys in one film.

The good news -- Ali ultimately did score a role in "Troll." The flick will probably go straight-to-DVD in 2009

My Husband and I watched one show and spent pretty much the entire time staring at each other with our jaws on the ground. I could go on for days about how utterly ridiculous very single aspect of the show is...!

I have never seen the show but I would love to, just to see how pathetic it is. I can't believe I share the same name with that woman--what an insult to all Dina's out there!

Barf.

I almost think that these type of shows orchestrate this behavior on purpose, so that viewers discuss it and raise an awareness, so that it'll draw in newviewers. Hello ratings!

Everything on that show is scripted...it has to be. Have you noticed how the cameras just happen to be waiting at the correct place when things "happen". In the show I watched, the shot was already setup before Ali fell with the clothes rack, what a coincidence...not!

Bad Television like that can't just happen on it's own!

It's insulting and disgusting how untalented and ungrateful this spoiled girl is. She's not driven to do anything. She seems like she's searching for her mother's love. Maybe if she's famous too, like her sister her mom or the world will show her love.

It is an insult to every talented actor who just craves an opportunity. Could you imagine her being in Annie at the age you were in it. She'd never be able to do the 8 shows a week. She'd copmplain etc. Not to mention she isn't talented enough to be in it.

"Living Lohan" on E! channel. It is "behind the scenes" with the Lohan Family (remember Lindsay??) as the aggressive stage mother, Dina, grooms her other daughter, Ali, for fame. It just had its season finale but I'm sure the repeat episodes air all the time on E!. Check your local listings.

...I could only take half an episode (where girls were being mean to Ali at school, she joined a theater group for one day, but showed how talented a singer/songwriter she was, lol) All the characters are quite unlikeable and I really doubt either the show or Ali will go very far....maybe the little brother is alright.
