Style that still lets the bride shine...
Don’t mess with Oprah Winfrey.
That’s what troubled actress Lindsay Lohan discovered when she agreed to do a show on Oprah’s OWN Network.
The talk show queen claims she was forced to confront the actress at her home in “an intense showdown” to ensure that Lindsay was serious about her work.
According to gossip site TMZ, Lilo was full of excuses when she answered her door, blaming her lack of focus on her house hunting troubles in New York, her other business interests, and even miscommunication between her people and Oprah’s team.
Oprah, however, was having none of it and threatened to cancel the show – due to debut next year – if Lindsay didn’t get her act together.
In an interview with Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, Oprah revealed what had happened.
“There was a lot of chaos going on,” Oprah said.
“So I went to have a conversation, a real conversation about that, to say to her, ‘Do you want to do it? Because if you don’t want to do it, that’s OK. We could just end it. We don’t have to do it’.
“I went to her house just to say, ‘What are you doing? Let’s get real here’..
“And… This is what’s conflicting about it. Because it’s television and we stand to gain if it does well. But the real truth is – and anybody who knows me, certainly my producers on the way there – Sheri Salata was in the car – I said, ‘If I get here and Lindsay isn’t serious, I will shut this thing down today’.”
Lindsay apparently persuaded Oprah that she was serious about the show, but insiders say that while things have been running smoothly ever since, Oprah is still watching Lindsay like a hawk.
