There’s one thing Auntie Oprah ain’t having and that’s people who play games. In a newly released clip for the upcoming docuseries, Lindsay, chronicling the troubled actress’ road to recovery, Oprah gives Lohan a word that might just save her life.
After Lohan is unable to begin filming because she locked herself out of her apartment, Oprah’s crew scrambles to get things sorted out. Fed up by Linday’s behavior, Oprah confronts the former child star and tells her she needs to get her act together.
“My truth is I really do want you to win. I really do,” Winfrey tells Lohan. “If that isn’t what you want, I’m okay with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today.”
When Lindsay starts to make excuses for her behavior, Oprah makes it plain, telling the 27-year-old actress, “You need to cut the bullshit. You really do.”
Lindsay promises to be another ratings boon for Oprah’s network OWN, which recently celebrated its highest ratings month in network history.
Despite its rocky start, OWN has continued to attract viewers and is now home to cable’s most-watched show on Tuesday nights, Tyler Perry’s soap opera The Haves and the Have Nots (which is also ranks as one of the top 10 original primetime series on cable TV).
