This is what straight talk sounds like, coming from Oprah Winfrey. A trailer for OWN’s documentary on Lindsay Lohan (titled Lindsay) has been released, giving fans an inside look into the actress’ journey to pull her life together. In the two-minute clip, trouble brews with the crew and Lindsay as she doesn’t seem to be cooperating. But not to fret, Oprah has a no nonsense conversation with her, while the cameras are rolling. With a bit of tough love and a bit of, ‘not on my dime’ type of tone, she tells Lindsay:
My truth is, that I really want you to win. I really do. If that isn’t what you want, I’m okay with that. You know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today.
After Lindsay tells her she wants to continue this journey, Oprah responds:
You need to cut the bullsh*t. You really do.
Watch the clip.
The show is set to premiere on Sunday March 9th at 10 PM ET/PT.
