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."

Lindsay needs to change her approach eventually people see through your bull**** excuses. She should try being responsible and honest for once.

C'mon, everyone knows Lohan is just doing whatever she has to do to get her drug money.

How Winfrey doesn't know this is beyond me. Lohans horrible track record is an open book.

It seems to me that sometimes TMZ seems to glome info and ideas from H8turd comments. I can't say that I blame them. There is a tremendous amount of talent here.

How many people would love to be paid $2 MILLION for doing nothing but allowing a camera crew to follow them for a couple of months? And this ungrateful ho can't even handle it. In her mind, I think she believes money should rain down on her just for existing.

I guess when Lohan ends up making a complete fool out of Winfrey (if not already) taking the drug money, back to partying and getting caught. Winfrey will be kicking herself. But it will be too late then.

Lohan is laughing her butt off. She's desperate for the money and will play whatever game she has to to get it. Then it's over.

Winfrey will be another bridge Lohan will end up burning but of course not until after she's paid. Winfrey is no different from anyone else Lohan burns.

omfg a reality show? what will it be about? how to ruin a potentially great movie career? how to steal necklaces? how to run over people and crash a car (not your car linds, baby, u can't afford a metro card)? how to live with the fact you are the butt of jokes world-wide? I could go on, but I don't have the time. oprah, are you that desperate for ratings? the reality is there is no show, just a joke. and a really bad one.

These are some new photos of Lindsay Lohan wandering around NYC yesterday. She had stayed out late the night before, attending Madonna’s dumb Art For Freedom event. So that’s why LL looks a bit ragged. That and it’s just how she looks these days. Anyway, remember how Lindsay was calling up People Mag and Us Weekly and anyone who would listen to tell them that she had a new boyfriend? That was last week. Lindsay wanted everyone to know that she was dating Matt Nordgren of that old Bravo show Most Eligible Dallas. Well, their relationship was TOTALLY for real and they were in love and Lindsay is perfectly sober and capable and she’s working so hard and Matt respected her and he was wonderful. But now they’re over.


Suddenly single! Lindsay Lohan and Matt Nordgren have decided to go their separate ways just one week after Us Weekly and other outlets confirmed they were dating, an insider tells Us.

“Their work schedules and the distance just make dating impossible,” the source says of the Canyons actress, 27, and the clean-cut Texan, 30. “He really likes and respects her. He thinks she is back on top, emotionally and physically.”

If she is, he may be part of the reason why. Insiders told Us last week that Nordgren — a former quarterback for the University of Texas and the Philadelphia Eagles — was a good influence on Lohan, who recently completed a court-ordered stint in rehab.

“He’s older, a successful businessman, and he has been a great friend to her,” one source told Us. “He’s also a Christian and won’t drink around her. He’s trying to keep her sober and on the straight and narrow. He’s really good for her.”

As previously reported, the two actually met seven years ago through mutual pals. “We’ve hung out,” Nordgren told the New York Post’s Page Six recently. “But I have been a friend trying to support her for many years now.”

That friendship is still intact, the first insider says. “He respects her sobriety and wishes her the absolute best,” the source tells Us. “They will remain good friends.”

[From Us Weekly]

This is the dumbest stunt. Like, absolutely no one would have given a crap except that Lindsay was calling up all of the weeklies to tell them all about her new boyfriend and how much he respects her sobriety (if she’s talking about her sobriety this much, that’s a good sign that her sobriety is a crack lie, by the way). And now it’s over? What happened? Did Matt Nordgren JUST Google her to find out what she’s been up to? Here’s a good rule of thumb: if a dude is truly a “good guy” who is “successful” in a real way, he won’t want anything to do with a Lohan.

By the way, this is just a minor, tangentially Lohan-related story, but if you’re in the mood for something profoundly disturbing, GO HERE to see Lindsay’s half-sister Ashley and how she had a “plastic surgery makeover” to look more like Lindsay. So gross.
