Oprah and her producers are shooting a “docuseries” (read: reality show) for OWN follows Lindsay Lohan around as she starts her recovery process. Yeah, great idea, Oprah. How to better recover than to give an attention starved mess a camera crew following her at all times. And for $2 million. Smart.
From Daily News via TMZ:
The Oprah-helmed project featuring the embattled actress, 27, is set to be strictly about Lohan’s recovery and attempts to resuscitate her acting career…In fact, OWN producers are doing everything possible to keep the “Canyons” star’s parents — headline mainstays Michael and Dina Lohan — as far away from the cameras as possible.
According to the gossip site, an “executive decision” was made to ban them from the show. There won’t even be a mention of Dina Lohan’s recent DWI arrest, show sources say.
Good. Now just cancel the entire show and we’re set.

Lindsay Lohan‘s half-sister, Ashley Horn, got $25,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like a younger Lindsay Lohan (above). I don’t think the surgeries make her look anything like Lohan. After the surgeries, Horn said, “I’m hotter than Lindsay! I have no problem saying that.” Well their dad Michael Lohan thinks there’s a problem.
From The Daily News:
“It’s nuts and sick and stalkerish,” Michael tells Confidenti@l, revealing that he no longer speaks to Horn. “What mother would let her 18-year-old daughter get surgery like that? And she’s hotter than Lindsay? Are you kidding me? Lindsay doesn’t need plastic surgery.”
It feels very weird to agree with Michael Lohan but the dude’s been nailing it lately. Of ex-wife/Lindsay’s mom Dina he said, “She has lived off Lindsay for 19 years. Do what every other divorced mom does and go to work.” Guy is ON it.

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.

Lindsay Lohan‘s family is getting a little crazier. Lohan’s half-sister, Ashley Horn (they share Michael Lohan as their dad), got plastic surgery to look just like Lindsay, “in her good days, when she was around 18, 19 years old” she told inTouch. Yeah,I’m not seeing the resemblance. The magazine posted a side-by-side comparison (above) but used a photo of Lindsay from last year, not when she was 18/19. I’m hoping they’re being snarky and making some kind of statement about how much plastic surgery Lohan’s gotten, but I’m probably over-thinking it.
Ms. Horn’s surgeries cost around $25,000. Who the f-ck is paying for this shit? Michael Lohan owes so much child support that he can’t pay. Here’s what Horn got for her money:
I’ve gotten rhinoplasty, a bit of refinement underneath my cheeks and jawline, some fat injected into my chin and some fat injected into my upper cheeks. [...] I’m hotter than Lindsay! I have no problem saying that.
Oh, okay. Got anything else to say about your half sib?
I’m not Lindsay. I wasn’t raised in that family. I don’t drink, do drugs or party. I like being a responsible person.
She’s 18. There’s still time.
Here’s Ashley before:
Girl, you downgraded. Sorry.

Lindsay Lohan already has a new boyfriend, it seems, and it’s a 30-year-old football player (well, former player). Her taste is really all over the place, isn’t it? I guess she doesn’t have a type. The dude is Matt Nordgren and he was briefly a quarterback for the University of Texas, then played for one season for the Philadelphia Eagles, then starred on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas. Ahhh, now I see the connection. Lohan’s totally not gonna date outside of the entertainment industry and she probably knows of him from the reality show. Here’s some details from US Weekly, from sources “close to the starlet.” We’re still gonna call Lindsay a “starlet”, Us? Okay then.
He’s a great influence on her, and her friends and family love him. He’s older, a successful businessman, and he has been a great friend to her. He’s also a Christian and won’t drink around her. He’s trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He’s really good for her.
He’s older by 3 years, they’re making it sound like he’s some Dumbledore shit. BUT it is really great that he won’t drink around her and wants to help her keep sober. That is someone Lindsay needs.
Apparently they met 7 years ago and have only recently turned their friendship into a romance. Guess this means Max George is gone.

Elton John wrote a song about Lindsay Lohan, and thankfully it wasn’t yet another reworked version of Candle In The Wind (Lohan wishes!). The song is “The Diving Board” and was inspired by Lohan’s ~~turbulent~~ life.
It could be a summation of my career because it’s about young people becoming successful and diving off into the unknown. What’s going to happen? Are they going to survive it? Are they going to become victims of their own success? Are other people going to prey on them and destroy them?
You could actually say it’s about me, but I was thinking about Lindsay Lohan when I was writing it.
I hate to think of Lindsay because she has a talent, she was a great actress, and then it became all about the madness, the parties and everyone forgets about what put them there in the first place – they get lost in the idea that they are famous for who they are, not what they are.
Oh yes, let’s all cry a river for Lindsay Lohan. He’s making it sound like someone did something to her. Everything she did, she did it to herself. Please tell me Bernie Taupin wasn’t involved in this mess.
I wonder if he’ll do a song about Chris Brown, since they’re such BFFs.
