Has Oprah Given Up on Lindsay?

Rumor has it that due to lackluster ratings, Oprah has decided to pull the plug on Lindsay Lohan’s OWN network docu-series.  The kicker- is that no one has told Lindsay the news yet.

So far only her head TV network executives know, while Lindsay has been kept guessing if she will return. The part reality show/ documentary turned into a ‘meltdown’ rather than a comeback series.

Insiders say Oprah is livid with Lindsay, 27, for her behavior on the shows and for leaks of trashy stories about the show and her rumored sex list.

Oprah also feels that Lindsay could’ve done more to publicize the show in the right way.

Ratings for the prime time episodes were low. The premiere attracted less than 700,000 viewers – a third less than they hoped for.

Bosses at the network originally commissioned the show for a one off run, but had given the star options for further follow ups if it was a success.

‘Oprah will tell Lindsay later this month that her show won’t be reappearing for in the future,’ an insider divulged. ‘First and foremost, the ratings were an absolute disaster.’

The report goes on to mention Lohan’s failure to land any successful roles in the last decade, and the concerning reports that the starlet has begun to drink and party again.  It will be very sad to see if Lohan goes off the rails again.  You’d almost have to try to fail with Oprah backing you.

Alcohol Relapse for Lindsay Lohan?

Lindsay Lohan Leaving Boujis Nightclub

Did anyone catch last night’s episode of ‘Lindsay’ on the OWN Network?  In it, Lindsay Lohan admits to drinking again since her departure from rehab.  Daily Mail recaps the fifth episode:

Initially the 27-year-old became enraged when her ‘life coach’ AJ Johnson asked her if she had been drinking.

‘I thought we were friends, why are you asking me this on camera?’ barked the Liz & Dick actress, who initially denied the accusations.

‘Your mom told me that you had been drinking,’ said AJ.

‘What…? The other night at dinner? When she was drinking,’ scoffed Lindsay incredulously.

‘She’s projecting on me,’ she sniffed.

But later she admits:

‘I rushed into a relationship .. and I jumped right into a relationship where we weren’t on the same page,’ she said, not specifying which boyfriend .

‘I wasn’t considering the fact that the person I was seeing does drink and yeah. … I had some wine,’ she said sheepishly, admitting that she felt ‘so much guilt’ for her setback.

‘It’s Ok to admit it. … It’s really scary. … It took me a bit to realise, but then I thought, why am I holding this in?

‘Yeah, f**k it, I screwed up and that’s OK,’ she confessed, while vowing to ‘try and stop it happening again.’

‘That’s a part of life,’ she shrugged.

Addiction, as we’ve seen so many times is a scary and serious thing.  And such a slippery slope.  I really would like to see Lohan get her sh&t back together.  Parent Trap was on the other night and I was watching it for a few minutes.  Little Lindsay was so cute and so talented.  Here’s hoping.  I’m rooting for her.

Lindsay Lohan Gushes About Oprah

Lindsay Lohan Is All Smiles In NYC

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.

James Franco Denies Tryst with Lindsay Lohan

'Homefront' Las Vegas Premiere

As the world is now fully aware, Lindsay Lohan has a list of her famous conquests.  However, at least one of her paramours is denying the allegation.  (I suspect quite a few more have and will board this train).  While speaking with LA Magazine about his new book of poetry, Directing Herbert White, actor, director, teacher, student, and now author, James Franco claims he should never have made the infamous list.

Franco writes about several celebrities in his book, and when asked if anyone had responded to that, he replied:

No, I didn’t write anything bad about them. And Lindsay herself has told lies about me with her people-she’s-slept-with list! So I feel like what I said is much less than what she’s said.

I believe it.  I’m no expert on the inner workings of Lohan’s mind, nor am I her confidante, but she strikes me as someone who wrote that list for the shock value and attention alone.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure there was plenty of truth to the list… I just don’t buy all of it.  I just don’t want to buy all of it.  Gross.

Franco also addresses the skepticism of his book due to his thespian status.

I’m an English major. I’m working on my Ph.D. in English literature, so this is something that has been a part of my life for a long time. My mother is a poet and a writer. It’s just one of my loves and I went to graduate school for it because I take it very seriously.

I know that my life as an actor obviously casts a shadow over what I’m doing with the poetry, but it allows me to get readers that maybe normally wouldn’t read a book of poetry. It also attracts skepticism and contempt prior to investigation, but I can’t think about that. It’s something I love, and if people want to judge my poetry through the lens of my acting then there’s nothing I can do about that.

Franco is kind of rad.  He gets mocked mercilessly for all of his many interests- but it’s cool.  He’s out there doing stuff.  Some of it’s weird- but he’s certainly prolific and hard working.

I love these pics of Franco and Seth Rogen on the set of The Interview – due out in October.  I need a designated umbrella holder in my life.
