    This is the first time I am here so i dont know if this had been on topic already but I wondered why Lalaine wassnt in the movie. And I dont mean the reason that they said in the movie (that she went to Mexico)  but in real life.

    Yes this has been the subject of much debate over the last 4 years. Some believe Lalaine was forced out by Susan Duff and/or Hilary because of her popularity with the people on the set. Others believe she wanted to pursue other acting/singing jobs. The bottom line is those of us who frequent this forum don't know with absolute certainty because we weren't there, so each person can believe what they wish.

    The question was about Lalaine, not her character Miranda.

    there were rumors that she had family problems. Becuase around the end of Lizzie, Lalaine was on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as the potential Chloe, but only appeared twice. She was in "Potential" than absent for like 5 episodes and came back in "Get It Done' where her character hung herself. It was rumored she was suppsosed to be in more, but couldn't because of family issues.

    Call me crazy but whenever I watch Lizzie I always saw LaLane as someone who was hiding something. I think she has a big problem. Even very young I asked my big sister why LaLane seems sad. I dunno it's weird I just know something is going on/went on that we never knew about. I would kill for a like Barbra Walters primtime sitdown interview lol. In my dreams maybe... by the way where is she now? Where is any of them now?

    Lalaine's done a couple movies due for release soon ("Her Best Move" and "Royal Kill").  She's also signed a record deal with Reprise Records, with an album still due to release.

    Lalaine always seemed like a pretty happy and well adjusted person to me.

    Heh wow my first time to these part of the forums and I gotta admit I'm surprised it has any activity left. Anyways I noticed throughout the show not necassarily LaLaine being sad but her seeming like a very weak character. Her best friend seemed more like Gordo not Miranda, I dunno I just didn't see Miranda as such a supporting character, but now that I think about it that show had more potential than it used.

    I missed her in last episodes. Gordo and Lizzie isn't same like Gordo, Miranda and Lizzie. Actually, I wondered about it too. It's really weird. Well, I just saw 64 episodes of 65. And in episode 2x33 she is. So I think that some episodes were recorded earlier, right?

    i think it's the opposite Lalaine wasn't sad but i felt there was so much more about miranda that the show didnt let on. then again certain things like how kate can be a nice person was done not that well in the show...people still think kate is a mean person or something =/ =?

    Huge bump here folks. I've been wondering the same thing for years. There have been so many rumors and I'm not falling for any of them until Lalaine says something herself.
