When the Oprah Winfrey-Lindsay Lohan TV collabo was announced a few months back, many insiders figured it wouldn’t be without hiccups given Lohan’s shaky attendance record for projects. And alas, the first rumble has been detected; it appears that Lady O and LiLo have already had their first showdown.
At the start of the shooting schedule for her upcoming OWN docuseries Lindsay was up to her old unreliable work tricks — often times being a no-show. So Oprah herself went to Dina Lohan’s house in Long Island for a sitdown with Lindsay. She warned the former child star to get her act together or threatened that the project would be canceled and she wouldn’t get her $2 million salary.
It has been reported that Lindsay got the message and things have been running smooth for over a month. But Winfrey is still keeping a very close eye on OWN’s latest TV star.
Lindsay better recognize you can’t ever play Oprah!

Rae Dawn Chong may not believe in the power of Oprah Winfrey, but Michael Lohan is hoping O’s magic touch will be just what his troubled daughter Lindsey Lohan needs.
Winfrey’s OWN Network paid Lindsey $2 million for an upcoming exclusive sit down interview and an 8-part docu reality series. Michael says he’s happy for his daughter and believes Oprah’s influence just might help his daughter stay clean.
“I think Oprah did her a great justice. I think it’s awesome that she gave her this opportunity,” Michael told TMZ. “It’s going to keep her straight, it’s going to get her back on her feet again. It’s awesome.”
Normally Michael and his ex-wife Dina disagree on all things Lindsey. But Dina almost exactly echoed Michael sentiments concerning her high hopes for her daughter’s latest career move. She told E! News, “Oh, it’s fantastic. If anyone is going to help mentor you, it’s Oprah.”
The Lohan clan sure has a lot riding on Saint O. But then again, if anyone can make a miracle happen for Lindsey, Oprah can.
