Tina Fey Blames Sick Kids For Not Supporting Lindsay Lohan

Tina Fey

Tina Fey was not there to support Lindsay Lohan during her ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosting gig because her kids were ill. The 41-year-old actress – who famously hired the troubled star to play the lead role in 2004’s ‘Mean Girls’ – claims to have missed Lindsay’s TV comeback because both of her children fell sick at the same time.

Her representative told the New York Daily News newspaper: “Tina was committed to doing the monologue with Lindsay but both of her children got sick. She was unable to participate as planned.”

Despite Tina’s absence from the March 3 appearance, Lindsay was supported by the likes of Jon Hamm, Jimmy Fallon and ‘Bridesmaids’ star Kristen Wiig.

The 25-year-old actress – who has endured several stints in rehab and a string of legal problems in recent years – kicked off the show by referring to her stint under house arrest in the opening monologue.

She joked: “Wait, so the alarm goes off if I leave the stage?”

Kristen also mocked the guest host, giving her a hug that turned into a body search for illicit substances, quipping “she’s clean” at the end.
