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!

As Oprah is signing the check she'll feel like she is being stared at. She'll turn around and see a line a mile long of all the people that Lindsay owes money to. Make it easier on everyone and just pay them, not Lindsay.

This is right up there with Sharknado, leading me to question, has Oprah finally gotten to big for ALL her britches or just jumped the shark???

Two paid assistants and a stylist, how about you throw in a drug councelor? I'm all for people turning their lives around, but this is going to end up with her OD in an OWN greenroom. I'm sure that would bring in the ratings Oprahs looking for.

Two paid assistants probably mean DUIna will be 'working' from home and LiLo's ugly sister will be on set with her. That whole family is a bunch of dirty grifters. And the Lohans will sell stories about the series to make extra cash, and Oprah will regret ever coming up with the idea for this show.

Attention All Young Starlets: Don't worry about breaking the law. You will be given chance after chance, and when it is all said and done, here is $2,000,000.00 to talk about yourself.

Oprah what where you thinkin',
Your show with Linds will be stinkin'.
All full of lies while Lindsay cries,
And afterwards goes out drinkin'.
~
The 2 million won't last,
As Linds has shown in the past.
It will go up her nose like before I suppose,
But at least she'll go out with a blast.

Just when I thought I couldn't hate this scabby carbuncle on the ass of life any more, she goes and pays Lindsay 2 million bucks.

Lindsay would be the oozing pus on said scabby carbuncle.

Late to the comments on the one but I gotta say - this is an Oprah story masquerading as a Lindsey story. Meaning - Oprah is not showing up like some kind fairy godmother here. She needs shows and rating FASTER THAN FAST. This deal is for the (hoped for) benefit to OWN. When the shows tank, Oprah will go on to the next and Lindsey will resume killing herself.

Is it just me,or did anyone else notice Katie Holmes' knee vagina looks a lot like Lindsay Lohan, but a lot prettier and more well groomed?

Wow ...    

Why Oprah why? Hopefully no one watches, so there won't be any others stepping up to "help" Lilo.

Well, Oprah, you have officially turned into a moron of epic magnitude. That 2 million dollars will probably go towards, drugs, booze, pills and clothes when she can't get her current pimp to pay for them. Couldn't you use your millions for a better cause?
