In a new interview with the U.K.’s Telegraph to promote her upcoming gig in a London production of drama Speed-the-Plow, the troubled actress, 28, says her OWN docuseries— which exposed her alcohol relapse, alleged miscarriage and many emotional meltdowns on the small screen last spring— made her a target in her hometown of New York City.
“After the Oprah show it was kind of hard for me to be in New York,” the hard-partying star insists. “There started to be paparazzi, and I didn’t have that in New York in the beginning…Every time I left my house, they were at the corner.”
In addition to blaming her sudden move on Oprah, the Mean Girls star disses a judge’s decision to sentence her to community service at an L.A. morgue for violating her probation in 2011.
It was “f***ed up and inappropriate,” she fumes. “Because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’”
“It’s different for me than it would be for other people,” she argues. “Like, no one would really have to work at the morgue in L.A. and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston.”
However, according to the Los Angeles Times, Lohan completed her 12 days of service at the Los Angeles County coroner’s office by December 2011— three months before Houston’s tragic death.
But, she insists she made the most of her requirement: “I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse.”
