Lindsay Lohan's Finally Doing Reality TV & It's All Oprah's Fault

TV Addict 10

lindsay lohan reality tvGuess it was only a matter of time ... Lindsay Lohan's getting her own reality show. No, not on TLC, so she can go back-to-back with Honey Boo Boo. Not on E! so she and the Kardashians can hang at upfronts together. But on Oprah's OWN Network. Ugggghhhh, WHY? Then again, with LiLo's life being filled with neverending tabloid fodder, and her apparent inability to get her act together, maybe she and reality TV are a match made in Hollywood Hell!

OWN tells EW.com the La Lohan extravaganza will kick off with an Oprah-LiLo sit-down taped and aired in August -- after the actress finishes her 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab expected to conclude July 31. Then, brace yourself for an eight-episode docu-series that will "follow the actress as she works to rebuild her career and stay healthy" and will air in 2014. Whoo hoo ...?

It bears noting that this is the first unscripted project Lindsay has said yes to, after apparently turning down many over the years, preferring to stick to scripted acting roles. Can't say I blame her actually! It seems like reality TV tends to make celebs -- or NON-celebs (cough MTV's Teen Moms! Most notably Farrah Abraham!) -- go even crazier!

That said, if the whole focus of this series is to document how she's cleaning up her act and getting on track, perhaps it really could be helpful to her personally and professionally. Maybe Oprah's onto something here. And as long as we're facing the "reality" of the situation, let's be honest with ourselves -- we are totally going to be tuning in.

What do you think about LiLo getting her OWN reality series? Will you be watching?
