All eyes are on Lindsay Lohan this week -- even more so than usual. Fresh out of rehab, the "troubled starlet" is back in the spotlight big time, guest hosting Chelsea Lately tonight (preview clips are awesome!) and having an interview with Oprah Winfrey set to air on OWN on August 18 (in advance of an eight-episode reality series on the same network slated for 2014). Is a real comeback in the cards? It may all depend on how LiLo answers Oprah's hard-hitting questions (previewed in a super intense teaser clip below). Because people are totally ready to give Lohan another chance -- again -- but this time, LiLo is going to have to work to prove that she's on the right track for real ... to her fans, of course, and especially to Oprah.
In the clip, we hear Oprah ask: "Are you an addict?" and "What does it feel like to be both an adjective and a verb for child-star-gone-wrong?" Whoa -- no pressure!
See, Lohan has little to no margin for error at this point -- the way she handles those questions is key, from a PR perspective at least. And I, for one, am hopeful: If the rumors going around are true, it does sound like LiLo is taking real steps to tackle her issues with alcohol (making sure all booze is removed from hotels, green rooms, etc., before she gets there), even if she does have a lingering problem with Adderall (which we don't know for sure).
This clip is pretty short -- like, don't blink or you'll miss it short -- but LiLo's facial expressions and Oprah's direct manner speak volumes:
From that semi-nervous face, looks like Lindsay knows this could be her last chance ...
How do you think Lindsay Lohan will handle Oprah's questions?
