Lindsay Lohan

Oprah Scared the Crap Out of Her

EXCLUSIVE

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."

Winfrey must be desperate. She got the first interview with Lohan after the addict got out of rehab and it didn't pull in 900,000 viewers. An old, many times repeated episode of Big Bang Theory on the SAME NIGHT drew FOUR MILLION viewers.
.
Now she has a self absorbed, hiding out, unemployable wreck of a human being who doesn't bother to show up for commitments that she has to give $2 million dollars to. This wreck blows off Winfrey, and ole Oprah suddenly realizes that she's pizzed away those millions when she could have used to to prop up her failing network.
.
Who would ever have thought that a brilliant businesswoman like Oprah Winfrey got scammed by a wasted out, talentless drug addict. Just goes to show how easily Lohan can pull the wool over peoples eyes.

And TMZ, Still waiting for this story:
Lindsay Lohan’s estranged half-sister undergoes $25,000 worth of plastic surgery to look more like famous actress.

MAXIMUM LOL!!!!!!
Friggin haters are pizzed about that $2M. LOL!!!! It's because she's Lindsay Lohan and she's much more important than you, hater. You don't matter and you're not worth $$$millions.
And the OW interview pulled a total of 1.8 million the first night. That's 1.8 million homes. An average of 2 to 3 humans per home were most likely watching. Haters have said over and over and over and over they would NOT watch. This means millions of humans do not hate Lindsay Lohan. How irrelevant do you feel, hater? On a scale of 1 to 10? BWAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

And why is she giving her money? She is talentless as we all saw in her joke of a portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor.

That's good that Lindsay is scared of Oprah. Oprah is like an ole southern mother ready to whoop a kids a** for messing up. Maybe she should have a talk with Miley Cyrus next.

Lying Lindsay's half sister is smart. She knows Lying Lindsay is going to OD by the end of the year and wants to play her role, when they do the movie of Lying Lindsays life. Milo is pissed off that Ashley bet Ali to it.
