Ali Lohan didn't realize it, but she auditioned for a producer who was also the man behind such adult classics as “Breast Wishes 14.” Her mom was not pleased.

There are bound to be a few bad judgment calls caught on tape as stage mom Dina Lohan tries to find fame for Lindsay’s little sister, Ali. But it’s doubtful “Living Lohan” fans expected to see the 14-year-old go for a meet-and-greet with a porn producer.

The controversy started after last Sunday’s episode of the E! reality series aired. In the episode, Ali appears at a casting call for a role in the upcoming horror flick, “Troll.”

“My stomach is in knots; my heart’s beating really fast,” Ali said after the interview. “I mean, these are like big movie people, so it’s nerve-wracking.”

Well, big is relative. One of the men seated across from the teen was Peter Davy. In addition to bringing the world such forgettable sci-fi dramas as “Saurian” and “The Eden Formula,” Davy was once the man-behind-the-cam on several adult offerings, including “Breast Wishes 14,” “Texas Crude” and “Bun Sisters 12” — a fact that publicity-loving momager Dina was supposedly unaware of until gossip site TMZ broke the news.

TMZ now reports Mama Lohan’s steaming mad and “ready to roll heads,” about the mix-up, and the real credit — er, blame — for the casting call falls on Ali’s agent.

As for “Troll,” which is a remake of the 1986 cringe-worthy film of the same name, Ali got the part.

Shia blames father for excessive drinking
Just as Shia LaBeouf finds himself facing DUI charges as a result of the accident he was involved in Saturday night, snippets of an interview he gave Details magazine reveal the “Transformers” star knew he had a drinking problem.

Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings “(My dad and I) would drink together and smoke together,” Shia said of his younger years.  “And it’s just a bad deal. It’s not something that is conducive to being a role model — no iconic actors that I know of have problems like that.”

In the interview, the 22-year-old admits that when it comes to booze, he doesn’t know when to stop.

“I don’t know how to do it like a gentleman,” Shia explained. “I don’t know how to have one drink.”

Dish on the fly
Move over, Spencer Pratt — there’s a new “Hills” baddie in town. Although it’s hard to believe anyone could top Heidi Montag’s main man when it comes to offensive behavior, according to Brody Jenner, Spencer’s sister Stephanie is up for the job. “She’s a million times worse!” Brody told Usmagazine.com. … Although his ex, Shayne Lamas, claims he told her to keep the engagement ring, British “Bachelor” Matt Grant assures People magazine it’s just not true. “It wasn’t a ‘gift’ so much,” Matt said. “It’s not a television or a handbag. It’s a symbol of marriage that didn’t happen.” The show’s sponsors paid for the bling in question, so Matt thinks it’s only fair that Shayne auction it off for charity. … Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth isn’t ready to end her feud with radio-turned-TV talk-show host Wendy Williams. “She definitely has a face for radio,” the hotheaded reality TV star told In Touch. As for last week’s on-air war of words, Omarosa thinks Wendy should have seen it coming. “She’s been so vicious (about me), she couldn’t have expected a tea party!”
