Lindsay Lohan to Oprah

$2 Mil For My Thoughts!

Lindsay Lohan
's guts don't come cheap, because we found out she's spilling them to Oprah at a cost of around $2 million.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us ... The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) has been negotiating with Lindsay for 4 months.  The plan -- an 8-part docu-series about Lindsay's struggles, her career and her plans for the future -- but we're guessing it's mostly about her struggles.

It's a better deal for Lindsay than just taking her top off.  For that ... Playboy paid her a measly $1 mil.

Ironically ... Lindsay's latest rehab stint may have scored her more cash, because of the drama and interest created around almost going to jail, firing her lawyer, going to Betty Ford, bailing from Betty Ford ... and on and on. 

Sources tell us ... Lindsay actually signed the deal at Betty Ford.

Lindsay got some perks from Oprah as well -- as in TWO fully-paid assistants and a stylist.

Substance abuse can pay handsomely -- Who knew?

Hey, we interviewed Lindsay for free -- check it out!

The last thing Lindsay Lohan needs is more money (not because she has so much, but because her spending habits are destructive) Lindsay Lohan needs to go to Prison for several years, be raped, stabbed in the showeres a couple times, and than a the end of her sentence, find God, get her life together. real change.

If Oprah cared about her, she would tell her to stay in rehab and then a sober house (with regular testing) for at least a year. Then if she can stay out of trouble and do her community service sentence without fuss and actually successfully get off probation - then Lindsay can sit down and tell that story. Fresh out of rehab, she's just going to recite the rehab lingo just as always. Lindsay has nothing interesting to say right now, she was forced into rehab (again) and insisted she didn't need it and has been playing musical rehabs ever since. And good luck getting her out of bed on time for the cameras in an 8-episode deal. Bet the IRS gets most of her paycheck. Hope Oprah is smart enough to wait until the episodes are all done and the plumbing has been checked over for any mystery clogs before she actually gives Lindsay what's left after the IRS.

If Oprah thinks that's worth $2M, something is wrong with her. I wouldn't watch if she paid ME $2M.

Maybe if she has some cash she will stay far from Dina. She might have a chance. It is all up to Linds.

Oh ain't this special? Gonna pay her $2 million to tell about how she broke the law. Way to encourage her to continue doing it, Oprah. Make sure she knows that breaking the law is profitable.

God, what the hell is this world coming to?

It is just foolish of Oprah to think that this waste of skin has even the slightest ability to self-reflect in any meaningful way. MALIGNANT NARCISSISTS and pathological liars believe their own BS---she will reveal nothing as always and she will get her check and Oprah will get some viewers and it will all be boring and pointless

I will also add that Oprah isn't very money savvy. LiLo would have done the show for 1/4th or 1/5th the amount Oprah agreed to . Linds needs the money and it is easy work.

I don't know anyone who wants to hear Lindsay's thoughts. It's a money loser Oprah.

That's a good deal for Oprah, IF it's $250,000 each time she shows up, which will be ONCE. Then it's off to the Races, and Oprah will have the first and only interview anyone who cares will watch.
