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."

Good riddance!    

Gee Doprah, maybe you should have had a clue that when you deal with filth, things often don't go as planned. They don't get much filthier than a Lowhan either, you stupid, desperate for rating smuck.

Oprah Winfrey's cable channel must be in terrible shape if she has to not just pay this mess two million dollars but have to kiss her ass while doing it.

Lindsay Lohan has not changed one bit. I'm still waiting for IMDB to list all the projects she has lined up.

Some "sources" say that right after Orcah hopelessly berated Linds at DUIna's house, she private-jetted directly to Tia Tequila's place. Wonder what she wants with Tia?

I don't think Oprah is kissing anyone's butt... she's trying to help three girl! Who has obviously been affected by her disastrous upbringing. Give the girl a break! She needs help and that's what Oprah is trying to do!

Oprah might has well have just flushed that money down the toilet cause that's were its going to end up anyway.....Cause Lindsay shyts money away like a rabbit with diarrhea ....
And for what a do***entary series that will flop bigger then a beached whale.....I't ain't going safe that network of her's her programming is just plain awful ....and that's the truth and even aiming for the black audience like it is . its still awful....that blacks don't even like it.....Their was a big write up in the paper Sunday about that newest series that just started on Owns....about the ubber rich black families they out riches the Hollywood house wife's.....and that's something....Said it didn't in anyway represent modern black family life and was a mockery and lots of stuff like that.....She wants to save her network she needs to listen to regular people and not the Hollywood producers who have ruins regular channel TV......with all their reality shows and shyt like that.....

Not to worry. Once Lohan gets the Winfrey drug money payday, Lohan will go back to drinking, drugging and partying and will go through that money in no time.
