Actress LINDSAY LOHAN is counting OPRAH WINFREY as one of her closest confidantes after teaming up with the media mogul for a new reality show.
The Mean Girls star admits working with Winfrey on new show Lindsay has brought her closer to the TV host and she feels grateful to be able to call on her whenever she needs advice.
She says, "I feel really lucky to be able to work with someone like Oprah and create. I have a really strong bond with her where I can call and she gives me this wonderful advice and she has been this really strong person I can listen to and learn from in life."
The reality series was formulated after the actress sat down with Winfrey for an in-depth interview following her release from rehab last summer (13).
The show centers on Lohan as she returns to her native New York from California.
She says, "I became really spiritual over this past year and I have been trying to find peace and serenity in my life. So of course they take the chaos of me moving after eight years of living in L.A. back to the city of New York.
"It is a television show so they want ratings - they picked the first two months after I got back to New York after I had been in treatment."
Despite her uneasiness with the timing of the series, Lohan is happy to have taken part in the project.
She tells Extra, "I did it because it's not a reality show, it's pretty raw... Obviously it's TV so things will be edited in certain ways to what will get ratings, which I can't control, but I do know that my intentions going into it were really pure and really honest and real and I really appreciate all that's happened."
Lindsay premieres on Sunday (09Mar14).
