"Lawd, give me the strength to help this basic bitch."
In case you didn't already now, Lindsay Lohan has negotiated a deal ($2M) with The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN to be followed around with a camera " for an 8-part docu-series that will show "Lindsay's struggles, her career and her plans for the future". I don't know how the ratings will be after the novelty of Lindsay walking around looking for unattended jewelry wears off, but Dina Lohan feels the great and mighty Oprah will be the one to save Lindsay. You know since seven trips to rehab and judges can't seem to make it all the way through the Mushroom Kingdom. New York Post reports:
Dina Lohan believes Oprah Winfrey will be the salvation of her troubled daughter Lindsay. After it was announced Lindsay will be followed post-rehab for a show on Winfrey’s OWN network, Dina told us at Jill Zarin’s Luxury Ladies Luncheon on Saturday in the Hamptons, “If there’s any mentor you could choose, there’s nobody better than Oprah. This is a great opportunity for Lindsay. We are all very excited about it.” She added her daughter’s “healthy, happy and doing really well” in rehab — where she’s been since May — and the whole family was heading to visit her this week. Lohan will be interviewed by Winfrey in August before the reality show about her recovery screens in 2014. LiLo’s “The Canyons” will premiere July 29 at Lincoln Center.
If Oprah pulls this off, it'll be the greatest thing she's done since she touched that invalid and he was able to walk again. Or that time she rode a winged Pegasus over Pakistan and taught them how to love.
