Lindsay Lohan Gets Scolded by OprahBy: Ann Casano - March 5, 2014
Viewers were treated to a special sneak peak of what to expect on the new Oprah Winfrey backed docu-series “Lindsay.” The reality show is set to premiere on OWN this Sunday at 10 pm. A teaser trailer has made its way around the internet, and it features an already fed up Oprah telling Lindsay to get herself together.
After one of Oprah’s assistant’s tells the former Queen of talk that Lohan is not following the established rules and not being cooperative with the production, Winfrey replies, “This is exactly what everybody said was gonna happen, and I believed differently. She doesn’t understand, this is your life!”
Oprah later confronts Lohan, “I really do want you to win.” She then adds, “You need to cut the bullsh*t, you really do.”
Here’s a look at the trailer. Several familiar faces make an appearance including Lohan’s spotlight-seeking parents Michael and Dina. We also see Lohan’s defeated-looking “sober coach.” There are plenty of tears, personal claims of staying clean, and of course complaints about the paparazzi and how Lohan “feels like a prisoner all the time.”
Many questions emerge from the trailer that may spark viewer interest. Will the 27-year-old actress use the show as a way to win back the hearts of the public? She was nearly at “America’s Sweetheart” level after successful star-making turns in Freaky Friday and Mean Girls. However, after multiple stints in rehab, several arrests, jail time, and constant bad press…can Lohan make a comeback? Or is she already washed up? Is she even capable of acting responsible and putting in the necessary hard work that it takes to stay sober and act like a professional?
She says at the end of the video, “I know this is my last shot at doing what I love to do.” Only time will determine if she actually means what she says. Either way, by the looks of this trailer, audiences who do tune in should expect to see a lot of drama.
One thing is for sure, Lohan still has plenty of fans that root for her. She currently has over 7.8 million followers on Twitter, and that number should go up dramatically after Sunday night.
