Will You Watch Lindsay Lohan’s New Show?
Lindsay Lohan sat down for an interview with Oprah Winfrey last August. The fallen starlet, fresh out of her sixth stint in rehab, sounded calm and coherent as she confessed that she is an addict.
Oprah asked the hard questions – jail time, alcohol, cocaine, parent trouble – and Lohan answered. But was she telling the whole truth? Is Lohan really dedicated to a full sober recovery? We’re about to find out.
“Lindsay” is a documentary series that gives viewers a glimpse into the life of the 27-year-old actress as she tries to stay sober in New York City. The premiere episode airs this Sunday, March 9 on OWN. Life in recovery can be a roller coaster, and the “Lindsay” trailer hints Lohan is off to a rocky start.
The trailer opens with Lohan’s new approach to alcohol: “There’s nothing left in having a drink for me. What’s left in that feeling? Nothing. There’s no party I haven’t gone to … no situation that I haven’t been exposed to.”
“It’s good, good, good, good, good, and then there’s this thing in my head where it’s like: oh, time to sabotage.”
But is she finding happiness in her sobriety? Lohan is paired with a sober coach, and she is constantly surrounded by producers and filming crew. We get a sense of her struggle in the trailer as a producer asks: “Do you ever feel like you’re a prisoner?” And Lindsay replies: “Yes, all the time.” Everyone needs privacy. But, is the problem deeper than that? Would Lohan give in to alcohol cravings if no one was around? “It’s good, good, good, good, good, and then there’s this thing in my head where it’s like: oh, time to sabotage.”
We quickly learn that the attempt to film Lohan’s struggle becomes a struggle in itself. Crew members are fed up. Lohan is in tears. And Oprah isn’t playing games. Before threatening to pull the plug on the operation, Oprah gives a final warning: “You need to cut the bullshit. You really do.”
The docu-series will showcase the very real issues Lohan must deal with on her path to sober living, from repairing relationships with her parents, to building a new social life outside the nightclub scene. Whether you’re a celebrity, or an ordinary person, it’s the same disease and the same battle.
Oprah’s interview with Russell Brand also premieres this Sunday on OWN. The outspoken British actor shares the story of his addictive personality.
Update: OWN disabled the “Lindsay” trailer on YouTube.
