The revelation is made in a trailer for the upcoming reality show The Houstons: On Our Own, which premieres October 24th on Lifetime.

LINDSAY ESCAPES TO LA/HELPED MOM WITH MONEY BEFORE!
Just hours after feuding with her mother, Lindsay Lohan got out of New York City. The Mean Girls star flew to Los Angeleson a private jet Wednesday so she could host a launch party for an energy drink called Mr. Pink. The owners of Mr. Pink offered to give Lindsay a lift on their jet in order to make sure she got back to the west coast in time. Meanwhile, the $40,000 Lindsay and Dina were fighting about Wednesday wasn’t the first loan Linds gave her mom to keep her Long Island home from foreclosure. Back in 2010, Dina made a deal with the bank to prevent foreclosure, and Lindsay was the one who shelled out the dough. Dina recently fell behind on payments again, which is why Lindsay lent her the $40K. Lindsay is now backtracking regarding the statements she made during her argument with her mother. She tells TMZ, "I told my dad a really hurtful and untruthful lie about my mom. She was not on cocaine." She passes off the fight as a "normal" fight mothers have with daughters. She also says she's "done" with her father Michael, and is upset that he released the phone call she made to him to the press. Lindsay adds that Michael, "doesn't know what it means to be a father. He doesn't want to be a dad."

LACHEY REVEALS ORIGIN OF SON’S NAME!
Nick Lachey wants everyone to know that his four-week-old son Camden was “not named after the city in New Jersey.” The 98 Degrees singer tells People magazine that he and wife Vanessa actually got the idea for the name from a street in Los Angeles. “It’s kind of a funny story. I’ve always liked the name Colin. We thought that Colin would be the name,” said Nick. “But as we got further into it, I learned that Vanessa wasn’t a big fan of the name Colin, so we started looking for another ‘C’ name.” Nick said that one day, after he and Vanessa were visiting her obstetrician on Camden Drive, he suggested, “hey, what about Camden?” Nick explains, “We didn’t really know anyone else named Camden. It was such a neat name. We fell in love with it and decided on it five or six months ago.” But unfortunately for Nick and Vanessa, someone else beat them to it. Just four weeks before their baby was born, Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler gave their baby boy the same name.
