I think the content of that article speaks for itself. Unreliable, unsubstantiated, pandering, gross schlock.
I also assumed LFB wouldn’t return, but it’s not unreasonable that L/F would reach out. It would be sort of monstrous to continue to hold her accountable for behavior of 25 years ago when she was 19-20 years old. Would you, as an adult, want your career reputation to hang in the balance of your worst behavior during your college years? She’s lived a life since then. And while she still seems to be rather troubled/difficult if the tabloids are to be given a shred of credence, that has never stopped DKL from hiring actors like Dennis Hopper, Tom Sizemore, etc. Heck, even back then, DKL wanted her for FWWM if she would have done it. It seems that LFB still has some chip on her shoulder regarding her time on the show; it would be so interesting to hear her side, but that seems unlikely to ever happen. In any event, I find it perfectly believable that they reached out and she declined (which I believe Fenn also said was the case on twitter, FWIW...I trust her more than an unnamed Daily News “source”).
It’s also worth noting that many of the actresses blacklisted by Harvey Weinstein were labeled with reputations for being “difficult.” I certainly don’t mean to imply that L/F did anything wrong, but there are two sides to every story, and given how young she was and the personal nature of her relationship with Kyle, there are a billion possible reasons she may not look back on the show fondly and may not have wanted to return regardless of the potential career boost.
