Lindsay Lohan reality show on OWN premieres March 9
Lindsay Lohan's "docu-series" will arrive on OWN on March 9, the network announced Thursday.
OWN also screened a "sneak peek" of the series, entitled "Lindsay," to reporters attending the semi-annual TV press tour in California that indicated there may have been friction between Lohan and OWN honcho Oprah Winfrey. At one point, Winfrey is told Lohan is "not following the rules," according to a Deadline.com report by Lisa De Moraes. "This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently," Winfrey says. "She doesn't understand. This is her life -- you think you have forever."
Later, Winfrey tells Lohan, "My truth is I really do want you to win . . . but if that isn't what you want I'm OK with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today." (Lohan then backed down.)
According to the De Moraes report, Lohan tells the camera: "There's nothing left in having a drink for me. There's no party I haven't gone to, nobody I haven't hung out with, no situation I haven't been exposed to."
The sneak peek also included a scene of Lohan getting locked out of her apartment and one in which the actress' sober coach says "um . . . you know" when asked if Lohan has remained sober.
The series, part of a multimillion deal sealed last summer that included an interview with Winfrey (already aired), was shot in August after Lohan's release from a Malibu rehab facility.
Lohan did not appear at the junket to promote the series.
