Sources say that Lindsay Lohan's six-episode gig on ABC's Ugly Betty got cut short, after Lilo and the show's star, America Ferrera, had some beef. Actually, an insider said that Lindsay's behavior pissed off a lot of people.
"It was a mess. Lindsay would show up every day with an entourage of people," a production source told Page Six. "She smoked 24/7, and after she left, they had to repaint her dressing room it was such a mess."
The spy said that Lindsay "would obsessively cut pictures of herself out of the tabloids like she was creating some sort of scrapbook and refused to go on set until America was there - it was a power play."
Then things got really dirty when, while rehearsing for an episode entitled "Granny Panties," where Betty pulls down Lindsay's character's pants, Lindsay was going commando and America "de-pantsed" her when she wasn't supposed to.
But a friend of Lindsay's says her pal was so wearing undies!
"Bullsh*t! Lindsay wears underwear all the time now," the friend said. "She was wearing a G-string. And it was America's fault. They were rehearsing the scene and America wasn't supposed to pull Lindsay's pants down - but she did. Lindsay was so embarrassed, she started crying."
The pal also blames America for any issues on set, saying, "America was mean to Lindsay. Producers give her too much power. Lindsay didn't do the last two episodes because America didn't like her and got her kicked off."
America's peeps would only say, "America is grateful to have had her on the show and thinks everyone should tune in to see how great the episodes are."
Lindsay's rep countered, "Lindsay was scheduled for six episodes and is appearing in four but had a lovely time."
How veiled were those statements?
