lindsay-lohan-OWN-interview-series.jpgIt was announced last week that Oprah Winfrey has scored the first post-rehab interview with Lindsay Lohan, in addition to an eight-episode docu-series to air on OWN in 2014. Lohan is due out of rehab on July 31 and an OWN spokesperson tells Zap2it the Oprah interview will tape and air sometime in August — which also coincides with the release of Lohan’s movie “The Canyons.”

And apparently, getting Lilo’s story does not come cheap. TMZ is reporting that OWN has been negotiating with Lindsay for months and that the interview and docu-series will pay Lohan a cool $2 million — which should come in handy, since the actress’ money troubles are well documented.

Sources also tell TMZ that the deal was inked while Lohan was at the Betty Ford Clinic (she has since moved to Cliffside Rehab in Malibu). The deal also reportedly comes with two personal assistants and a stylist.

Will you be tuning in for Lohan’s interview and/or docu-series on OWN?
