When word got out that Oprah Winfrey’s OWN was releasing a reality show surrounding Lindsay Lohan’s life, the world uttered a collect “Oh-Oh,” because we all know that Lohan hasn’t shown the most amount of responsibility in the past several years. And now Winfrey is experiencing some of that irresponsibility first hand.
“There’ve been bumpety-bumps, bumpety bumps,” said Winfrey in an interview with the E! channel.
But despite those challenges, it seems the show will still air on March 9. At least as far as Winfrey can tell. “But as far as I know, as of right now, whatever time this is, we’re still filming. And that’s a part of it, that’s part of live, that’s part of coming out and trying to put your life together,” she said.
Most people first heard that Lohan and Winfrey were working together when the red-haired actress sat down with Winfrey in a no-holds-barred interview last year, but reports came out that Lohan was up to her usual tricks of jumping on a plane and leaving the country without telling anybody.
In fact, the person from E! interviewing Winfrey alerted her to the fact that Lohan was out of the country, much to the former-talk show host’s surprise. “You would probably know more than I do,” said Winfrey, when she was told that Lohan wasn’t in the States at the moment. “As far as I know we’re still filming. Do you know something?”
It’ll be interesting to see if Lohan completes the necessary amount of filming to get a decent show in, and if Winfrey has the patience to even deal with the 27-year old actress for a long period of time. But either way, it doesn’t seem that Winfrey is hiding her frustration, because when she showed a clip of the show to TV critics, she can be heard chastising 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 to pack up and leave today,” she said.
