LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actress Lindsay Lohan has revealed she suffered a miscarriage during the filming of Oprah Winfrey's OWN network documentary series chronicling the former child star's life after rehab.

"No one knows this - and we can finish after this - but I had a miscarriage for those two weeks that I took off," the 27-year-old actress said in Sunday's finale of the "Lindsay" series, saying that was the explanation for her missing some of her filming commitments.

"I couldn't move, I was sick. And mentally that messes with you," the red-haired actress said.

Lohan, once one of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood with roles including 1998's "The Parent Trap" and 2004's "Mean Girls," has become better known for her legal troubles in recent years that included theft and reckless driving. She has been to rehab six times.

The "Lindsay" show is part of the actress' efforts to make a comeback, but it has sometimes cast Lohan in a negative light when she missed work commitments, even frustrating Winfrey, who confronted Lohan about rumors of her party lifestyle.

The premiere of the eight-part series delivered a ratings high for OWN with 693,000 viewers, and the show has nearly doubled the number of women watching in the 18-49 demographic that advertisers covet.

OWN has yet to say if "Lindsay" will be renewed for a second season, but a spokesperson said "rumors that it was canceled are untrue."

I do not care about “lindsay” she is the poster girl for bad behavior.
Next season she will be abducted by Martians. This is not the person you want to hold up to your child to admire, her parents are even a worst example. Oprah, must think a lot of her to give her a series, that tells me a lot about Oprah.
