BEVERLY HILLS (LALATE) – Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy photos might have drawn international news coverage but you will have hard time finding any response in Beverly Hills. Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy pics arrived on newsstands this week one year after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fumed over Playboy pictures of Camille Grammer versus Faye Resnick. But none of the very outspoken RHOBH cast members are talking this week about Lohan’s Playboy spread. Noticeably silent, however, is the RHOBH cast member who even co-funded Ali Lohan’s last music album. Can you guess who she was?
Before there was a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, there was Living Lohan, a reality series which paired Lindsay Lohan’s mother and sister Ali Lohan on screen. Throughout the storyline, Ali Lohan made news as she pursued her music career. The show dominated news in 2008. But at the same time, Ali Lohan began work inside a notable Las Vegas hotel for her second album. Lindsay Lohan’s sister was at the time signed to a small label with a powerful Las Vegas / Beverly Hills family.
Ali Lohan’s 2008 album began recording sessions at the Palms that year and was slated to be released by Maloof Music, a partnership of Maloof Productions and Interscope Records. The Ali Lohan label was co-owned by Adrienne Maloof along with her family members.
In 2008, LALATE reported news that Ali Lohan was recording for the Adrienne Maloof and family label. A FOX news report added “The brothers let the Lohans stay at the Palm, just as Michael Jackson and his brood have been living in another part of the hotel.” The report added “the Maloofs not only are underwriting the album but also the reality series Ali and mom, Dina, are starring in for “E!” “
The RHOBH cast members have been obsessive about each other’s Playboy spreads for two years. But they make no mention of Lohan this week. Just weeks ago, Bravo aired a special segment called Dinner Party from Hell, Producers Cut, in which Faye Resnick delved extensively into Camille Grammer’s Playboy past. Faye told viewers “Someone sent me a Playboy shot [of Camille] and it doesn’t look like a Playboy shot. It look a p–n shot…. I know everything about Camille’s past.”
The Playboy drama heated up last season when Kyle Richards on-air turned to Camille Grammer and remarked “Camille, didn’t YOU also pose for Playboy?” Kyle knew the answer because the Housewives had reportedly looked at Camille’s pictures in the limo en route to Camille’s Malibu mansion. Grammer, as Camille Donatacci, had posed for Playboy, along with the Marilyn Chambers’ Bedtime Stories and The N–ed Detective.
Last year, Grammer drew news debate after she said she didn’t do Playboy Magazine but Playboy’s Lingerie book. Taylor said “It’s clothed? You we wearing lingerie.” Lisa Vanderpump off screen responded to the comment. “Lingerie? I thought the whole point of Playboy is no lingerie.” Like Vanderpump’s response, this week, critics have fumed that Lindsay Lohan’s Playboy photos are barely revealing to marginally qualify for Playboy.
And while Brandi Glanville and the Real Housewives have been a major hit this season, one Playboy-theme has made news for its failure this fall: Eddie Cibrian’s “The Playboy Club”. Don’t expect a flop from the Lohan spread. Her pictures with a release date of today are expected to break records for the publication.
