Oprah gives everyone reality TV shows nowadays, from Ryan and Tatum O’Neal (entertaining as f-ck by the way) to LaToya Jackson. But the worst is yet to come. Oprah is producing a “docuseries” (read: reality TV show but we’ll be damned if we call it that) with Lindsay Lohan that, “will follow the actress as she works to rebuild her career and stay healthy” (ET Online).
Are you kidding me?
We’re big fans of the Oprah head-shaking GIF here at Evil Beet, but I don’t think we’ve ever used it in a story about Oprah. The universe has come full circle.
Do I even need to explain why “following the actress as she works to rebuild her career and stay healthy” is a terrible idea? We all get why it’s a terrible idea, right? The VERY LAST THING Ms. Lohan needs is to be FOLLOWED BY CAMERAS. Especially while she’s trying to recover and get her life back on track. I thought she realized this? Ha, kidding, I knew that wouldn’t last.
The series will begin in 2014 and is scheduled for an 8 episode run, in addition to a sit down interview with Oprah. It will all air on OWN, which means it will be seen by a staggering dozens of people.
