Video: Oprah Asks Lindsay Lohan If She's An Addict
Her sit-down interview with Lindsay Lohan won't air until August 18th, but Oprah Winfrey is building the hype now and making sure everyone knows that she's asking the hard questions. Winfrey's OWN network released a teaser of the interview, which has O asking, "Are you an addict?"
In the brief teaser, Lohan doesn't speak, but we do hear Winfrey asking, "What does it feel like to be both an adjective and a verb for child star gone wrong?"
Lohan will also be taping a reality series for OWN this month. OWN and Harpo Studios co-president Erik Logan wouldn't discuss the rumored $2 million payday for Lohan, telling the AP, "We don't comment on any of the deals that we have with any of our partners through any of our contracts. Those are all confidential and proprietary. We have a great partner with Lindsay's manager and her team. They've been very collaborative and I think they're all aligned with potentially what we want to accomplish so we're excited about getting to work about it."
Until the Oprah interview airs, you can get your LiLo fix by watching Chelsea Lately tonight at 11 p.m. on E!—Lohan takes over hosting duties from Chelsea Handler and seems to do a good job of it!
