Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Scared the Crap Out of Her

Lindsay Lohan will get to keep her huge paycheck from Oprah Winfrey ... but only after an intense showdown between O and LiLo ... TMZ has learned.

We've confirmed ... Lindsay was a disaster at the beginning of the project -- at times just being a no-show -- which doesn't work in Oprah's world.  We're told Oprah went to Dina's house on Long Island for a showdown with Lindsay.  She told Lindsay either clean up her act or the project is over and Lindsay would not get her $2 million paycheck.

Our sources say Lindsay had a bunch of excuses ... she was spending time trying to find an apartment in NYC, she had other projects she was trying to finish, there were "miscommunications" between her people and the folks at OWN, yada yada.

Oprah made the ultimatum clear and Lindsay got the message.

We're told Lindsay is now cooperating and things have been running okay for nearly a month, but Oprah is still watching Lindsay like a hawk.

Be careful Lindsay.  It's gonna be hard to score 2 mil with "Canyons 2."

When did Oprah become a therapist, counselor, or clinical psychologist to be interfering into someone's HEALTH or PSYCHOLOGICAL problems?

Lindsay is so f'n overrated. She isn't a good actress, and can't even show up to collect 22 million dollars just being herself? What an absolute troubled girl. She needs to get areal job, like the rest of America, and quit her supposed acting career.

As per the Oprah Winfrey interview with Lindsay Lohan, it's about time some one with some common sense scared the hell out of Lindsay. It might as well be Oprah. Lindsay, based on all published accounts was heading for sure disaster. Oprah saved her life!
