Lindsay Lohan's scheduled appearance on Tuesday's edition of Live with Regis and Kelly didn't happen, with the Mean Girls star bowing out during showtime – saying she was sick to her stomach.

"Lindsay Lohan is sick. She's not coming. Well, that's kind of a blow," griped the show's star, Regis Philbin, to sidekick Kelly Ripa. The New York Post reports that Lohan's reps apparently informed Live producers of Lindsay's malady five minutes after the show went on the air.

"She has food poisoning," Philbin announced. "What'd they find out, about five after 9? ... She tried to make it."

Lohan, who was seen at Monday night's Times Square gala premiere of King Kong, was due to promote her new CD, A Little More Personal (Raw), on the show. The disc, her second, hit stores on Tuesday.

Lohan's publicist did not answer the Post's request for comment regarding the actress's absence, but Lohan rebounded in time to make an appearance later Tuesday afternoon on MTV's TRL.

As for Regis and Kelly, Lohan was replaced by a performance and interview with Ashanti and a holiday toy demonstration.

Before the Live mishap, Lohan did grant an interview to the Associated Press to help launch her album. The news service notes that the redheaded-then-blonde-now-auburn-tressed Lohan's penchant for late-night partying is constantly chronicled in the press, as is a love life that has had her linked to actor Jared Leto after her split last year from That '70s Show star Wilmer Valderrama.

"That's just gross," Lohan, 19, says of being in the spotlight. "These things about people going out and doing drugs – people have families and kids who look up to them – a sister and brother – how can you say that? It's really horrible in a way."
