Many figured that Oprah’s ‘Lindsay’ reality show wouldn’t be a cakewalk, but this first look video reveals — well, exactly what you thought it would. At one point, the typically serene Oprah gets so upset that she tells Lindsay to ‘cut the bulls–t!’
Oprah & Lindsay Lohan’s Reality Show — First Look Video Promises Drama To Come
“There’s nothing left in having a drink for me,” Lindsay narrates as the video begins. “What’s left in that feeling? Nothing. There’s no party that I haven’t gone to, there’s no person that I haven’t hung out with, there’s no situation that I haven’t been exposed to.”
It only gets nuttier from there. Not only do we see footage of the paparazzi following Lindsay to her AA meetings, but we get some one-on-one time with the infamous Michael and Dina Lohan, and witness the typically serene Oprah losing her cool at the permanently troubled former child star. And really, you can’t blame her — you can tell from the footage that Lindsay was not the easiest documentary subject in the world.
“This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen,” Oprah says. “I believed differently.”
She then confronts Lindsay, and that’s when you-know-what gets really real.
“My truth is that I really do want you to win,” she tells Lindsay in a rare face-to-face moment. “I really do. If that isn’t what you want, I’m okay with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today. You need to cut the bulls–t.”
Then, to make matters worse, a documentarian asks Lindsay’s sober coach if she is, in fact, still sober.
“You know…” he replies, before answering the question with a telling shrug. Ouch!
The first installment of the eight-episode Lindsay documentary premieres Sunday, March 9 on OWN. In the meantime, what do you think of the footage, HollywoodLifers? Will you be tuning in to the latest saga of the Lindsay Chronicles?
