Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Scared the Crap Out of Her

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

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."

Oprah is probably the one who is scared. Scared that giving Lindsay "another chance" will make her the laughing stock of the industry. Oprah doesn't deserve that but unfortunately she made the decision and now she has to live with it. Lindsay is living with her mother? Oh that's really smart.

Well if I saw that fat cow moving towards me I would be afraid as well...I bet lindsy thought she was opras noon meal....Or in her drug and alcohol addled state lindsy figured she was hallucinating. Either way there is no way that the drug addict will get it together. She will continue to lie and mislead until with any luck she is dead from self inflicted stupidity int the form of a drug or alcohol overdose. Wont that be a wonderful day.....

Well Oprah - that's what you get. You lay down with crack dogs - you'll get crack fleas. You aligned yourself with this cracked out family, and paid them a lot of money to reward their bad behavior - so now you are getting what you deserve. Lohan will may or may not be sober - but no amount of rehab will address the fact that she's a lazy, no talent, mean, nasty, assholic narcissist who doesn't give a flying f*ck for anyone's time except her own. She's a nightmare to work with - and Oprah, my dear, you fell for another one of the Lohan crackie schemes. Getting rich for doing nothing. Good luck Oprah - and don't say I didn't tell you so.

I have seen people say things like "wow look at her she is really taking this seriously this time" or " she finally gets it" however I cant help but think the only reason she is being behaved after this latest rehab stint is due to the fact that she is having cameras follow her and even more so she desperatley needs this pay day. The only thing that makes this after rehab any different from any other is that she has a big pay day dangling in front of her.

Once she gets the money and the cameras are gone do people really think she is going to continue this? Im not wishing her to fail but I personally never found Lindsay to be a kind person who is just f*cked up she has always come across to me anyways as very entitled feeling and not nice type personality. I feel like the Oprah interview was the fake Lindsay while the Piers Morgan interview right before rehab was the real Lindsay, only difference being Pierce didnt have a two million dollar check waiting for her so Lindsay didnt have to pretend.

Well when the docu-joke tanks like the joke interview did. Winfrey will look like quite the fool.

That will be embarrassing as hell being made a fool out of by a no talent, liar, drunk, drug addict and thief. Way to go Oprah.

Who's next Amanda Bynes Brook Mueller?

I would call for everybody to run this thing though the comments roof just to spite the Kardashian hold on TMZ if I didn't think it would benefit TMZ to much....
Lord knows the Lohan could use the money about now as sure as the hell the Kardashians don't......
Kinda of like picking out which snake you want to play with the rattler or the cobra.they are both vipers....
I would pick the rattler myself at least it give's you a warning when its going strike by shaking its tail and making a lot of noise and Lindsay does like to shake her tail.....LOL
The Kobra Kueen she doesn't know when to quit ....Just keeping on pumping the poison even after she;s lost her tail by having it cut off.....Stupid foollll
Just a few thoughts from my mountain this morning....Kinds of cold here but ahhhh ! it feels time.......

Yeah right. Things have NOT been running smoothly for a month. At least when the cameras aren't around. I doubt Oprah has been watching her like a hawk. And of course she is pulling her usual crap like she does on sets. Are we supposed to be surprised?

What a waste of $2 million dollars!
Nobody wants to hear a word this loser has to say.
And she had so much bad plastic surgery, she's kinda hard to look at too!
Any worthwhile good charity in the country is better served with this
$2 million.

For $2,000,000.00 I just might show up on time.
