"Lindsay," the Lindsay Lohan reality show, is really happening (premieres Sunday, March 9 at 10 p.m. on OWN), and we've got a first look at the OWN documentary series' first trailer. And it is good.
Watch the trailer, below, to see Lohan smoking a lot, throwing tantrums, crying about money, and getting locked out of her apartment. It definitely looks like enough chaos to fill more than eight episodes, but is she as sober as she promised her new boss Oprah Winfrey she would be? Her sober coach isn't very convincing: "You know... [sigh]."
Update: OWN has expired the original trailer, but you can see snippets of her meltdown here:
And Oprah's stern words to Lindsay here:
After her most recent stint in rehab last summer, Lohan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for "Oprah's Next Chapter" before filming started on the eight-episode docuseries for OWN. In that interview, which garnered huge buzz and decent ratings for OWN, Lohan shed plenty of tears while convincing America's favorite interviewer that she had turned over a new leaf.
"A lot of stuff went on with my family when I was young and I grew up in a very chaotic home," Lohan said in that interview. "And then there were moments of everything being wonderful and perfect and then things being so uncontrollable and chaotic that ... it's something people go through and unfortunately I waited too long to face it."
But the trailer for "Lindsay" shows Lohan embracing that chaos again, admitting that she goes into self-sabotaging mode when things seem too good. Then she moved back to New York to be with mom Dina, dad Michael, and all the drama they still bring to her life.
It gets so bad that Oprah is forced to intervene, telling her to "cut the bullsh--," after hearing that Lohan has been missing scheduled meetings and hasn't been following the rules of production.
"This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently," Oprah says. "She doesn’t understand. This is your life!"
Oprah tells Lohan again that she's on her side but only has so much patience, saying, "I really do want you to win... but if that isn’t what you want I’m OK with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today."
Nothing will snap a fame-hungry, out-of-control (and broke) starlet out of her self-sabotaging ways quite like the threat of having a TV show taken away from her!

Lohan puts on that convincing face she showed during the "Next Chapter" interview again: "I know this is my last shot at doing what I love to do."
