Working with Lindsay Lohan hasn’t been a walk through the park for Oprah Winfrey. During a clip from troubled actress’ upcoming OWN reality series, Mama O said she should’ve listened to the LiLo warnings.
“This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently,” she said in the teaser, which was screened for TV critics. “She doesn’t understand. This is her life – you think you have forever.”
In one scene, the 27-year-old movie star refused to take part in a scheduled filming and Oprah was ready to call it quits.
“My truth is, I really do want you to win … but if that isn’t what you want, I’m okay with that,” she told Lindsay. “I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today.”
The actress responded, “I know this is my last shot at doing what I have to do.”
During another scene with her sober coach, Lindsay said she was finally ready to give up all drugs and alcohol.
“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,” she said before admitting she feels like a prisoner “all the time.”
“I don’t want them following me to an AA meeting,” she said of the paparazzi.
O and LiLo signed a $2 million contract for an eight-episode reality series last year. The show — which is scheduled to follow the starlet’s post-rehab life and work to get her career back on track — will premiere on OWN network on March 9.
