Who’s been watching Lindsay Lohan’s docu-series on OWN? I haven’t seen it- but have actually heard that it’s better than it should be. Lohan spent 90 days in rehab last summer, and has been trying to get her life back in order since her departure. Lohan was on Ellen earlier and attributed much of her turnaround to Oprah Winfrey.
“I speak to her almost every day, and she’s just…she’s been so amazing to me. Just, you know, for everything, even before the show was coming out.”
“I was getting really panicked, because I hadn’t really heard my name anywhere in so long, and I would turn on the TV, and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I’d have a minute, like I thought it would kind of distract from the show…but then I just kept hearing my name, and I started getting really, like, panicked about it,” Lohan explained. “I just called her, and she was just talking me through it and everything.”
“She got me really into meditation,” the 27-year-old actress added of Winfrey, 60. “I mean, she’s one of the reasons why that’s such a big part of my life. She’s just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire.”
She also addressed her stay at Cliffside – the rehab center – which was not her first experience with rehab:
“When I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself, and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past,” she said of how this stay differed from past stays.
“In the past — a lot of people don’t know this — I was sent to rehab to avoid [the police] trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something I necessarily wanted or was ready for,” she explained. “This was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said, ‘Look, I need some time. I need to figure something out.'” What she figured out, she said, is that she wants to get back to work. “So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again.”
I hope she can do it. I feel like a broken record with all these young stars who get caught up in the fame, money, trouble. She was so awesome in Parent Trap and Mean Girls. It’s so important who these stars surround themselves with. On a very superficial note- I really think she should stick to the red hair.
