Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Scared the Crap Out of Her

EXCLUSIVE

0925-oprah-lindsay-lohan-tmz
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."

Funny how The Jimmy Kimmel Show has been cruising along just fine for years. Linds staggers by, and leaves her signature grief tornado in her wake, and now all hell breaks loose. Producers might think about investing in electronic fences for their soundstages. 200 amps or better, because anything less, and Linds just gets high from the "buzz".

Well, since the usual rags are putting out "Lilo is hilarious!" pre-show PR Propaganda, I'm going to assume her skit is her usual ham acting, poses and narcissistic smirking......in short, terrible.


Did you see Fallon's recent spoof of Breaking Bad? Now that was hilarious!

Dear RC and other brain-dead psychos,
JF will NOT have Lindsay on The TS next year and beyond. Lindsay Lohan is DESPISED by many in the entertainment industry and on Planet Earth. There was NEVER a real audience exactly like each and every time she's been on late night TV, and audiences always give her a rather LUKEWARM reception. JF is one of Lindsay's many ACQUAINTANCES in the entertainment world and on Planet Earth. ENABLERS are stupid and mentally disturbed. Here's what's interesting. ENABLERS are so stupid and delusional as to desperately deny the obvious fact that Lindsay Lohan is despised by many. ENABLERS regularly deny the obvious fact that Lindsay Lohan is LOATHED and DESPISED by many. Who is delusional and who is aware of reality? The answer is clear to those whose heads are clear. What I'd like to know is why ENABLERS are so upset about the fact that Lindsay has a MINISCULE following of supporters and fans. Haters are certainly not lonely. There are plenty of humans on your team. Why are you so secure? Please DON'T seriously answer these questions if possible. Of course, it's a possibility. Poor things.

Lindsay is like a canary she Tweets when she's happy and I'm so glad that her life is better. Hanging out with legend Madonna must having been a surreal thrilling experience. Meeting with Oprah at your mom's house isn't something that happens everyday either. The Jimmy Kimmel skit was funny and trended all day on Yahoo. NY fashion week had a shinning star named LiLO. The move to NYC seems to have been a good one, although the City of Angels shines a little less at night without it's brightest star. So HaTeRs.....how's your last few weeks been anything interesting? Oh no Madonna, no Kimmel, no fashion week, no trending on Yahoo??? ROCK ON LiLO.....

TMZ took LiLO off of their most commented on list...jealous much Harvey.....TMZ seems obsessed with baby Kanye.....the little kid in school who was always abused and never grew up...

Just watched the Lohan skit on Jimmy Fallon (Ew!). This is what I precogged in my previous comment way before I watched it.


"I'm going to assume her skit is her usual ham acting, poses and narcissistic smirking......in short, terrible."

I'm THAT good.
