According to ABC News, “Lindsay” gives a glimpse at the new-found life of the 27-year old “Mean Girls” star in New York City after undergoing a three-month rehab stint in Los Angeles in 2014. This is her latest sighting on the network after granting Winfrey’s request for a sit-down interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that was aired on August 18, 2013.
TMZ shared that the sit-down interview jump-started the re-launch of Lohan’s career, which helped her get an eight-part docuseries on OWN Network and a reported sum of $2 million dollars.
However, a New York Daily News report surfaced during the beginning of 2014 that there are indeed conflicts during the filming of “Lindsay.”
“She never does what she says she is going to do. She cancels all the time and is highly erratic,” said NY Daily News’ production source.
“It has been frustrating to work on this project from the start,” said the “Lindsay” insider. “It’s all about Lindsay and it is clear she has no respect for the crew.”
Meanwhile, Oprah spoke to E! Online about the “Lindsay” docuseries.
“There have been bumpety-bumps, bumpety bumps,” Winfrey admitted in the interview with E! Online.
“But as far as I know, as of right now, whatever time this is, we’re still filming. And that’s a part of it, that’s part of live, that’s part of coming out and trying to put your life together,” she added.
In the video footage uploaded on Youtube, Oprah tells Lindsay that she was warned that this might happen, but she still chose to believe otherwise.
The NY Daily News reported that even though the video revealed conflicts between the two, Oprah remained supportive of her new star in so many ways, including on Twitter.
