Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Scared the Crap Out of Her

9/26/2013 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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."

TMZ couldn't put an exclusive together even if they were in the same room while Colonel Mustard was assaulting Mrs. Pea's c*ck with the candlestick.

Oprah..you got what you paid for. Ya get burned you deserve it. You knew the history of the Lohan's before you did this. If your network goes down in flames, no one is there to blame but YOURSELF!!! You are taking this risk. accept it. deal with it. and more importantly EAT it!!!

H8turds must be psychic, bitch. Everybody has been saying that Lindsay is staying low key and stopped calling the paps because Op laid the smack down on her and wouldn't pay her until she finished the project, which TMZ just confirmed (as if we didn't already know), is just more manufactured phony "reality" tv.

And Lindsay is terrified of anybody who doesn't tolerate her bull****.

Too funny. Winfrey wasting 2 million on a no talent, drunk, drug addict pathological liar and thief. A docu-joke no one is going to watch. Like the interview was a no rating hit.


Winfrey couldn't you use that money to feed hungry kids in the states. What the hell were you thinking.

As soon as Lohan gets the money it's right back to partying. If not already just not caught.
