Outrage: Lindsay Lohan To Star In Reality Show For Oprah Winfrey's Network
"The media mogul (Oprah Winfrey) has landed an exclusive interview with Lindsay Lohan, the first after she gets out of rehab in August, reports EW.com.
It will tape and air in August, an OWN spokesperson tells USA TODAY.
But wait, there`s more.
Oprah`s OWN network has signed Lohan to an eight-episode docu-series that will follow the actress as she works to rebuild her career and stay healthy."
Oprah Winfrey has always been a tabloid queen at heart. Winfrey dresses up her interviews with a veneer of faux spirituality and women`s empowerment, but her root appeal is always to our basest instincts.
A serious journalist wouldn`t interview Lindsay Lohan; the pop tart doesn`t have anything of substance to offer to the talk queen`s audience.
"Docu-series" is a fancy way of saying "reality show." Winfrey`s cameras will follow LiLo as she continues her downwards spiral. Watching the troubled thespian`s trials and tribulations will make for sick laughs but healthy ratings.
When Lohan is in the glare of the cameras it brings out the worst in her. If Oprah cared about the young starlet she would let her have some privacy for a change.
