I was a full grown adult woman in 2000 so I’ve never seen Life-Size, the TV movie where Tyra Banks plays a Real Doll magically brought to life by Lindsay Lohan, and for that, I am truly, deeply sorry. How could I have missed it! Understandably, it’s become a bit of cult classic so it’s no surprise that Ty Ty has been trying to abracadabra a sequel to life since 2012! But for that kind of dark LiLo R’hllor shit to work, she knows she needs the help of The Red Priestess herself. And according to Entertainment Weekly, Ty Ty’s wish is Lilo’s command!
Well, sort of.
Tyra Banks said her former costar will be joining her in Freeform’s Life-Size sequel, speaking in a new interview with Steve Harvey. “Lindsay Lohan will … be in Life-Size 2, yes!” Banks announced. “I really, really want her to. We’re talking about it right now, and she has got to come back.”
Last year, Tyra told the press that she and Lilo were both in talks to come back for LS2: Weirder Science in an “eager” and “robust” way, which I think proves that they both learned to speak English with the help of a random word generating computer.
Tyra said that LS2: Dollar Store Barbie Boogaloo is going to be “a fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie”. And she’s really excited about the updated soundtrack she has planned. Giving her failed singing career one last chance to fail, Tyra’s promised “a new ‘banger’ version of the original song ‘Be a Star’”. So, this but banger-ier?
Calling that an “original song” is the closest either of these two will ever come to understanding the meaning of irony. I hope Lindsay doesn’t have to get out of her Lawyer.com contract to take this gig. Those guys really know their contracts!
