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."

As I have said before, Oprah is not a person to whom to be trifled. First, Lindsay is not getting two million dollars. That was made clear by Sheri Salata, Oprah's UNO número right hand woman. Second, Oprah didn't become worth over two billion dollars by running a charity or a rehab. Third Oprah made it clear she is NOT mentoring Lindsay Lohan. They are in a business agreement together. Oprah is doing a LILO docu drama to make money. If at any time Lindsay blows it again, or Lindsay does something to offend any sponsors, Oprah will shut this project down.

this is another BS lohan leaked story, oprah drove to long island to dina's house to yell at lindsay?.....come on does anyone believe that ........really?.....
a phone call possibly by oprah's assistant.........
we all predicted that lohan would not complete the project......and by her body langauge in her 10th post rehab interview you could see she did not want to be there and was looking at oprah like "hurry up so I can get the f*ck away from here" it was just a big inconvenience for lohan to like 'have to work' form so money........she's so used to being given money by the mid eastern men she does 'favors' for that is not like working for her. you know on her back in a 'Y' postion.......such easy money for her...........answered questions ? now that is irratating work.......why don't they just admit she's a hooker

One thing is for certain....As soon as taping is over and that check is signed and that SLAG gets that money in her pocket, the true druggie that she is will be out in full force.

Oprah Oprah Oprah...I just don't get it. Why does she, a woman who has had such a career and loyal following, decide she wants to waste time on famewhores and crack addicts like the Kardashians and Lindsay Lohan.
I guess there is the argument of "ratings" but ratings at the expense of what? You associate with people like Lindsay and other trainwrecks, your credibility becomes shot. Why not put your money and energy into building people with real substance? Not substance abuse issues.

I actually think that the success of Oprah's production depends upon Lindsay's sobriety. I think that watching Lindsay get derailed again would also be compelling. The only problem for the production company would be getting Lindsay to actually show up for filing

Either way it's a win win for Orca.....IF (big if) Liho does get her life straighten out she can say...'it was her guidance and belief in her' and WHEN she flames out she can say spin it... 'I hoped & tired and believed in her' (like what she did with Whitney) The mighty O will turn it into a PSA on child actors and drugs. Betcha!!
