VIDEO: Lindsay Lohan Breaks Down About Her Sobriety to Oprah

Three episodes into Lindsay Lohan's OWN docu-series and we finally get the Oprah smackdown we've been waiting for.

On Sunday's episode, Oprah had a sit-down with Lohan after she continually showed up late for shooting, even refusing to film on some occasions. Once the two sat face-to-face, Lilo agreed with everything Lady O had to say.

Lindsay Lohan shares journals from rehab on Lindsay

"I believe that you believe that this is the time to turn this around for yourself," Oprah said. "If that is the case, you're not going to f--- up." 

"I need to hear that from you because it helps and empowers me," Lindsay responded.

"Just cut the bullsh--," Oprah then said.

In the second part of their chat, Oprah asked the actress about her sobriety. As Lohan tries to answer, we finally see the emotional side of the actress rather than the chain-smoking, pissed-off entitled celebrity we've seen thus far.

Weekend Review: About a Boy, Fisher Sneak Peeks, Downton Finale

This week's gold-medal question: Can NBC reverse its spotty track record when it comes to using the ratings boost of the Olympics to launch new programs? (Remember the Summer 2012 debacle when the network interrupted the flow of London's Closing Ceremony to inflict Animal Practice on an unwilling captive audience?)

The news is better this weekend, during the closing nights of the Games. The comedies getting a sneak peek are considerably more entertaining than Animal Practice — what wouldn't be? — and they won't air until after that night's Olympics packages are finished.

First up is NBC's best new comedy of the season (including the star-driven disappointments that flopped on Thursdays this fall): About a Boy, airing Saturday night at approximately 11/10c before moving to its regular time period next Tuesday at 9/8c. This charmingly offbeat ... read more
