Oprah kicked Lindsay Lohan‘s ass — metaphorically, of course. Oprah made the hilarious decisions to give Lohan a “docuseries” and an interview and pay her $2 million for the whole shebang. Apparently Lohan was up to her usual tricks of not showing up on time and flaking. Oprah was having none of that shit. From TMZ, my favorite Lohan story providers:
Lindsay was a disaster at the beginning of the project — at times just being a no-show — which doesn’t work in Oprah’s world. We’re told Oprah went to Dina’s house on Long Island for a showdown with Lindsay. She told Lindsay either clean up her act or the project is over and Lindsay would not get her $2 million paycheck.
Our sources say Lindsay had a bunch of excuses … she was spending time trying to find an apartment in NYC, she had other projects she was trying to finish, there were “miscommunications” between her people and the folks at OWN, yada yada.[...] We’re told Lindsay is now cooperating and things have been running okay for nearly a month, but Oprah is still watching Lindsay like a hawk.
There’s an old saying Dr. Phil was rather fond of: “How can you tell an addict is lying? When their lips are moving.” It’s sad but I’ve found that it’s true. And Lohan proves that it doesn’t matter how much money or how much fame you have. Addiction can hit anyone.
That being said, get your shit together, Lindsay. And Oprah, make better decisions. Come on now.
