Oprah strongly warns Lohan on upcoming OWN show

SHARE Oprah strongly warns Lohan on upcoming OWN show

The TV journalists at the semi-annual Television Critics Association in Los Angeles got an early look Thursday of Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming “Lindsay” documentary-style reality show set to debut March 9 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN cable network.

Among the more dramatic and controversial moments, Lohan’s sobriety coach unconvincingly replies, “Um… you know,” when asked if the actress has remained sober since her most recent release from rehab.

Cut to Winfrey rushing to the scene — shown as she’s told Lohan is not sticking to the straight and narrow path she needs to follow, if she’s to maintain her sobriety.

Winfrey is shown saying, “This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen, and I believed differently. She doesn’t understand. This is her life — you think you have forever.”

The TV mogul then tells Lohan, “My truth is, I really do want you to win…but if that isn’t what you want I’m okay with that. I will tell these guys [TV crew] to pack up and leave today.”

After being taken to that verbal “woodshed” by Winfrey, a contrite Lohan says, “I know this is my last shot at doing what I have to do.”

“Lindsay” is an 8-part docu-series taped last August, following Lohan’s release from a 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab.
