Lindsay Lohan’s OWN docu-series was supposed to cover the actress’ comeback from addictions. Now, it seems the show will focus more on how difficult it still is to work with the former teen star…
“This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently,” Oprah said of Lindsay’s lack of cooperation in a sneak-peek shown to critics at the Winter TV Press Tour, Deadline reports. “She doesn’t understand. This is her life – you think you have forever.”
The preview clip went on to show Oprah confronting Lindsay about the trouble she gave producers: “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.”
Seemingly repentant, Lindsay said, “I know this is my last shot at doing what I have to do.”
Despite the tough love from Oprah, production sources told the New York Daily News Lindsay continued to be difficult.
“She never does what she says she is going to do. She cancels all the time and is highly erratic,” said a source. “It has been frustrating to work on this project from the start. It’s all about Lindsay and it is clear she has no respect for the crew.”
Even with the setbacks, the OWN show is slated to premiere on March 9. In the official description, the docu-series is said to follow “movie star and media sensation Lindsay Lohan on her journey through recovery following a very public period of crisis… Lindsay is strikingly candid about her life and is more determined than ever to get back on her feet. In this honest, no-holds-barred account, viewers will see an intimate, unflinching look into the life of one of the world’s most sought-after celebrities.”
Lindsay begins its eight-episode run on OWN on March 9 at 10/9c.
