When Oprah and Lindsay Lohan formerly debated taping a docuseries on OWN, Lohan said she was ready to be open and honest. But on the 3rd part of Lindsay watchers see Lohan decline to let the production crew into her apartment to film. Knowledge that Lindsay has caused commotion for the docuseries crew, Oprah goes to New York for a planned check-in on and confronts the actress about her behavior. “When you change a schedule, you know what happens. You’re a professional woman,” Oprah stated. “And it’s not just for you. You’ve got a whole team of people who are relying on you right now for this particular experience, for creating this documentary.”
During the powerful heart-to-heart, Oprah questions Lohan if recording this series is what she really wants. “No, I want it,” Lindsay states. “It’s just weird to film things that are going on; I’m just not used to it. And I’m learning how to deal with life in a different light than I have before, and in a different way that I have before. And at the end of the day, my main objective is to maintain my sobriety.”
Oprah asks the question that up until now, Lohan had not responded to: “And have you been sober since we last met?” “Yes, I have,” Lohan answers. “Hello, let’s celebrate that!” Oprah states. “That’s where you are right now; look at how great that is. Wow.” Breaking down into crying, Lohan expresses to Oprah that it feels good. “I feel good that I’ve maintained something that I’ve worked so hard for,” she says. “What about the Adderall?” Oprah asks. “No, nothing,” Lohan shakes her head.
When she’s been lured to drink, Lohan says she plays out the situation in her head, and it’s a descending spiral she doesn’t want to reenter. Oprah brings up a current tabloid report that said Lohan was out late at night with an old boyfriend, but Lohan says it was entirely false. It’s up to Lohan to demonstrate the pessimists wrong, Oprah says, and gives her advice. “The vultures are waiting to pick your bones,” Oprah says. “And that shouldn’t frighten you. That should liberate you. Because if I were you, I wouldn’t let them have me.”
It’s really amazing to know that even though she is the famous actress Lindsay Lohan, she still struggles with sobriety like any person would. She says that if she wants to drink or use, she plays the tape and sees how bad it can get. I know that for me, in the beginning playing the tape really helped me to stay sober. Sometimes it can be hard to be honest with yourself and think about what might happen if you drink. As a real deal addict, I know that if I start with drinking (even though I was an alcoholic, as well), I will end up doing drugs sooner rather than later. It’s something I have proven to be true over and over again. It’s good that Lohan is keeping her sobriety as her number one priority.
