Lindsay Lohan has signed a $2 million deal with Oprah Winfrey’s network, OWN, to bring her life to reality TV. However, despite a glowing endorsement of Oprah from Lindsay’s mother, Dina, others warn Lindsay to watch her back.
“Just look what happened to Ryan O’Neal or The Duchess of York after their shows with Oprah, nothing,” an ex-OWN executive tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB. “It is not that Oprah is bad or any different from any other executive running a network, it’s a business. Not to think otherwise is being silly.”
Ryan said Oprah admitted she wasn’t ready to launch her network. Adding, “I wish we had known that … she should have told us….nobody saw it … I don’t know if Oprah saw it.”
Similarly, the poor Duchess of York looked to Oprah to change her life with the show, ‘Finding Sarah.’
“Sarah was very disappointed with the show and Oprah,” a friend of the Royal tells NAUGHTY BUT NICE ROB. “She assumed Oprah would take her under her magic wing and change her life. That didn’t happen and the only person who can make that happen for Lindsay, is Lindsay NOT Oprah.”
