Oprah Winfrey has added her voice to the resounding chorus of people in Hollywood and beyond who claim that Lindsay Lohan is notoriously difficult to work with, according to New York’s Daily News.

There have been delays and problems in the making of Lohan’s new reality show, which is set to debut on OWN (Winfrey’s network) on March 9, and Winfrey can be seen losing patience over Lohan’s refusal to take part in scheduled filming.

"This is just what everyone warned me would happen [working with her]," Winfrey said in a clip from the show, screened for TV critics, according to the Daily News.

"My truth is, 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," she added in another scene, talking directly to Lohan.


According to the Daily News, Winfrey offered the troubled star $2 million and the eight-episode reality series, which shows viewers the struggles Lohan faces on her way to sobriety as she attempts to relaunch her near-ruined career.

"There's nothing left in having a drink for me. There’s no party I haven't gone to, nobody I haven’t hung out with, no situation I haven’t been exposed to," Lohan said in the show.
