Thought Lindsay Lohan’s 90-day court-ordered rehab would prevent the 27-year-old actress from working in Hollywood? Think again.
Oprah Winfrey has decided to document LiLo’s personal struggles in a new reality TV show! According to Entertainment Weekly, Oprah’s OWN cable network has signed Lohan to an eight-episode docu-series that will follow the actress as she attempts to rebuild her career and gain a healthy disposition. Since the actress’ big-screen debut, she has had an endless stream of problems ranging from substance abuse to stealing. Lohan's movie roles have been poorly reviewed and the troubled 27-year-old has been the subject of highly publicized car accidents.
Lohan has accumulated six mug shots since her first arrest in July 2007, when she was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and possession of cocaine. Perhaps it’s Lohan’s troubled past that's made her first post-rehab interview so sought after by the media.
Not only has Lohan decided to participate in the reality TV show on Oprah’s network, but the Hollywood star has even agreed to let Oprah get the first interview after she leaves rehab. “OWN will air an exclusive interview with Oprah and Lindsay Lohan that will tape and air in August and an eight-part documentary series with Lindsay for 2014,” an OWN spokesperson confirmed.
The interview is viewed as a coup for Oprah, who has had trouble finding a stable footing since ending her much-loved talk show. Lohan is also well-known for turning down high-profile interviews. In 2008, Lohan had the opportunity to do an E! docu-series called Living Lohan, according to EW. But she turned it down.
Do you think it’s a good idea for Lohan to participate in Oprah’s docu-series or should the starlet spend her time rehabilitating in private? Let us know your take in the comments section below!
