The Haves And Have Nots

Shocker: The production of Linsday Lohan’s first reality show did not go smoothly. As the first trailer depicts, Oprah Winfrey’s effort to capture the struggling star turned into a show about trying to make the show itself.

The first trailer for the docu-series Lindsay is below. The series from Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network promises an “honest, no-holds-barred account” and “an intimate, unflinching look” at the actress after she left rehab last year. The first preview suggests what we’ve been hearing for months: That Lohan was a very difficult subject who threatened to derail the project. “This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently,” Winfrey says. “You need to cut the [expletive].”

Reads the official description: “Equipped with a new personal assistant and sober coach, Lindsay moves into a New York hotel and begins the challenging search for a new apartment, while career pressures build.” Lindsay debuts Sunday, March 9.
