The Word: Ali Lohan’s dramatic about-face

Just when you think the Lohan family couldn’t get more effed up (I waspretty sure that happened when Michael Lohan underwent training tobecome a minister; how wrong I was!), new photos of Ali Lohan’s, 17, newface hit the Internet.

Just when you think the Lohan family couldn’t get more effed up (I was pretty sure that happened when Michael Lohan underwent training to become a minister; how wrong I was!), new photos of Ali Lohan’s, 17, new face hit the Internet.

But don’t worry! Her dramatic about-face has nothing to do with plastic surgery. Her PR rep swears it.

“Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it,” said her publicist, Steve Honig. “During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer,” he said. “It has also slightly changed the composure of her face, all of which is typical of what happens to kids in their mid- to late-teens. It’s what most people refer to as the awkward stage. Ali is growing up; that’s all.”

Look. The girl is 17 years old. Wolf-children probably have more guidance while growing up than Ali Lohan. It’s not fair to poke fun at a young girl getting radical plastic surgery in order to fit into the Hollywood ideal as pretty much being the definition of “sad.” So instead, we’ll make fun of her PR person. Really dude — it’s her “awkward” phase? When I went through my “awkward” phase, I resembled Chunk from “The Goonies,” not a runway model. But I guess we can’t all be so, um, lucky?

Actor Andy Whitfield dies

Some sad news out of Hollywood yesterday. “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” star Andy Whitfield, who had to bow out of subsequent seasons of the Roman TV series due to his battle with cancer, passed away at the age of 39, the series’ network, Starz, confirms. “We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield,” Starz chief Chris Albrecht says in a statement. “Andy was an inspiration to all of us as he faced this very personal battle with courage, strength and grace.”
