So after a stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan thought she would traipse around Europe for a few months and collect herself. Well, now that she has signed on to the dotted line with OWN (and Oprah), plans have changed. It seems that Oprah is making an executive decision on her latest acquisition and putting an 86 on the Strawberry Snortcake’s travel plans.
According to reports, after Winfrey heard about Lindsay’s intentions of traveling in Europe, she felt like a relapse was inevitable and so talked Lindsay into re-thinking her moves. In other words, Oprah told her: “I OWN you. You aren’t going anywhere!”
Since Lohan is set to star in her own reality series on the OWN network, Oprah could not risk Lohan relapsing and dying before the show is even shot, so who can blame her? If we were Oprah, we would have let Lindsay go and started filming during the rip. We’d love to see Lohan vomiting and snorting in stall #3 at various hours of the night. That’s ratings gold!
