We've seen it time and time again. A child star grows up in the spotlight, has fame hungry parents, no one ever tells them no, they party, their squeaky clean image starts to get tarnished, the pressure mounts, drugs happen, lesbian relationships ensue, parents of tweens who love them are outraged, tabloid stories become far more prevalent than movie roles, rehab happens, then a comeback, then rehab again, Lather, rinse, repeat.
Sound familiar? No, I'm not predicting Miley Cyrus' future (although I could be), but I'm referring to everyone's favorite train wreck–Lindsay Lohan. Girlfriend has had a quite a time, hasn't she? What's next for her? Well, thanks to Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, she's getting her own reality show. That should be helpful in her "recovery."

According to Deadline, OWN's documentary on LiLo (aptly titled Lindsay) is set to premiere on Sunday March 9th at 10 PM ET/PT. The show will follow Lindsay as she attempts to pull her life together and get back into the acting scene. You can bet I'll be glued to it!
A press release for the show promises, "The highly anticipated OWN documentary series Lindsay, directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Amy Rice (By The People: The Election of Barack Obama), follows movie star and media sensation Lindsay Lohan on her journey through recovery following a very public period of crisis. Lindsay is one of the most talented young actresses of her generation, boasting an impressive list of credits."
It continues, "Having had her career and personal life sidelined by her public struggles, Lindsay is strikingly candid about her life and is more determined than ever to get back on her feet. In this honest, no-holds-barred account, viewers will see an intimate, unflinching look into the life of one of the world’s most sought-after celebrities. Cameras follow Lindsay as she returns to New York, reunites with friends and family, and attempts to build a new life. As she works to stay on track amid the demands (and pitfalls) of fame, she opens up as never before, discussing everything from her emotional recovery process to her exhausting run-ins with the paparazzi."
You know what is the perfect thing for a recovering addict who is equally addicted to being the center of attention thanks to growing up on camera? Having cameras follow her attempt to get better. I wish Lindsay the best, but, while I'm no psychologist, I highly doubt this is the way to go about it. Shame on you, Oprah! You know better!
