Oprah Winfrey Isn't Renewing Lindsay Lohan's Reality Show For A Second Season

Apr 16, 2014 09:21 AM


Oprah Winfrey has pulled the plug on the next season of Lindsay Lohan's docu-reality show Lindsay, according to The Daily Mail.

"Oprah grew tired of hearing about Lindsay and her private life in other media outlets," a source told the DM. "It became a little worrying when stories about her private life appeared in magazines, while Lindsay never talked about anything like that on the show."

"Leaked stories from those around her also generated what many felt was trashy publicity, which didn't really improve her image or send out a message that her star was on the rise," the source added. "A story about Lindsay's supposed sex list story left many with a bad feelings too. Lindsay did very little publicity for the show either. Oprah kind of expected that, but it would've been nice if Lindsay went some chat shows to talk about the reality show."

While most of this sounds about right, we'd like to point out that Lindsay did appear on a handful of late night shows to promote her own program, even if she did insinuate that she wasn't happy with the way Lindsay was edited.

Apparently the talk show queen was "appalled" by Lindsay's behavior, including her squabbles with producers and her apparent lack of interest in staying sober. We have to wonder if this decision was made after those reports came out that Lilo was chugging vodka at Coachella...

So what about the ratings? It was "an absolute disaster," the source said. "It didn't pull in the viewers that Oprah had hoped for. On paper this show had huge potential, but in practice it has been a poor show."

"In reality the series has simply showed that Lindsay is a long way from returning to Hollywood," the insider concluded. "And her attitude towards the advice and help Oprah gave her seemed to be ignored in the main ... Oprah has cut her losses and said there will be no second season for Lindsay."

Now what?!

Lindsay Lohan Tells Oprah She Wanted To Go To Jail

Aug 19, 2013 06:00 AM

In the first part of Oprah Winfrey's in-dept interview of Lindsay Lohan -- shot just four day after Lindsay completed the court-mandated, three-month stint in rehab -- Lohan explained that in 2010, she wanted to go to jail to "find some peace."

And she details the heartbreak she suffered in seeing her family's disappointment as the judge sentenced her.

Lindsay also told her new BFF (her best friend since Oprah, no doubt, paid a pretty penny to get the sit-down and to have Lindsay commit to a reality series for the OWN network), "I feel whole again."

Perhaps the most shocking news to come out of last night's interview is that Lindsay says she doesn't believe her parents have ever sold her out. She swears she's as close to her mom Dina as she is to dad Michael and when asked why her dad recorded and released to the media a late-night call from Lindsay in which she said her mom was on cocaine, she told Oprah, simply, "I don't know."

Part 2 of the interview airs next Sunday at 9 ... I know we'll tune in!

Oprah Winfrey Dines On Vegan Fare In Hollywood

Aug 12, 2013 09:00 AM


We guess Miss O wanted a healthy dinner!

Oprah Winfrey dined at Crossroads vegan restaurant in West Hollywood last night, and the talk show host must have been really complimentary of the meal, because one of the chefs personally escorted her out of the eatery afterwards.

Only first class service for the media mogul!

The OWN founder has a lot going on these days! Not only is she filming an upcoming eight part docuseries with Lindsay Lohan, but she also has her new film Lee Daniels' The Butler to promote.

We would give anything to break bread with Oprah!

Looks like she's totally forgotten all about their feud!

On Wednesday afternoon a cheerful Oprah Winfrey paid a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman to promote her new movie, The Butler, and this is the first time she's stopped by in eight years.

Lady O last graced the show with her presence in 2005 when she was making the rounds to promote The Color Purple, and while the two reportedly made nice after a 16-year feud that started in 1989, we had to wonder why she hadn't appeared on the show since then. (As you may recall, Dave gave Oprah a hard time about a dine and ditch tab, and then joked about it when he hosted the Academy Awards in 1995.)

But forget about Letterman -- we can't wait to see what happens when Oprah sits down with Lindsay Lohan next month for the starlet's first post-rehab interview. You know, the one OWN paid a cool $2 million for?

Oprah Has Extravagant Lunch While On Safari In Africa

Jul 29, 2013 12:30 PM


What do you get for the woman who has everything?! The Serengeti of course!

Oprah and her main man Stedman Graham have been vacationing in Africa's Serengeti Plains and the media mogul has taken to Twitter and Instagram to document her amazing trip. During the safari holiday, the 59-year-old billionaire photographed cheetahs, elephants and other wild life. Oprah and Stedman, who have been going strong 27 years, also enjoyed a hot air balloon ride together, which Oprah wrote wrote about, saying, "favorite experience on Serengeti: Sunrise in Hot Air Balloon. A SuperSoulSunday moment indeed!

We don't know exactly what a "SuperSoulSunday" is but if it involves animals and a hot-air balloon ride -- we will take it!

After at the picturesque ride, Oprah had a lunch feast on the plains fit for a king -- or rather queen. Lady O posted a pic of the heavenly meal, complete with zebras prancing in the background, and wrote, "Safe landing. Gonna eat and run. Back to US, yay!"

Not a bad last meal before coming back to the US!

Oprah is no stranger to Africa -- she founded the ‪Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls‬ in 2007, which is a boarding school for girls outside of Johannesburg in South Africa. The philanthropist has visited the school several times since it was founded.

Hey any billionaires out there want to take us on a safari? We don't eat much and we pack light!

Lance Armstrong Opens Up To Oprah Winfrey About Alleged Drug Abuse

Jan 15, 2013 08:15 AM


Lance Armstrong sat down with Oprah Winfrey for her show Oprah's Next Chapter to discuss his controversial cycling career and drug allegations. Winfrey calls it "the biggest interview I've ever done."

When asked if Armstrong, 41, admitted that he used performance enhancing drugs, Winfrey adds, "I would say he didn't come clean in the manner I expected. He was just ready. . . He had certainly prepared himself for this moment."

Just yesterday, the AP reported that Armstrong gave an "emotional" apology to his Livestrong staffers before taping the Oprah interview.

The International Cycling Union, which chose not to appeal the USADA's lifetime ban, stripped Armstrong of his record seven Tour victories.

The interview will air Thursday, January 17.

Nov 22, 2012 09:15 AM


Oprah Winfrey may be worth billions, but the media mogul still prefers to make her own Thanksgiving meal.

Lady O, 58, posted the above photos and the following: "Caramelized onions [are] so pretty they make me sing. [My] kitchen smells like home." She then wrote that she had prepared "sweet potatoes with freshly pickled rosemary."

Yum! The founder of O.W.N. was also happy to dish out the following cooking advice. "Boil the berries in orange juice. Add cinnamon, cloves, allspice and chill. Happy Thanksgiving!"

You get a berry, you get a berry, you get a berry! That infamous "you get a car" episode never gets old.
