Lohan reality series 'Lindsay' looks like a hot mess

The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) released its official first look at "Lindsay," a reality series documenting Lindsay Lohan post-rehab -- and girl, it looks like a hot mess.

"There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person that I haven't hung out with, there's no situation that I haven't been exposed to," Lohan narrated in the sneak peak.

Asked, "Do you ever feel like you're a prisoner?" she replied, "Yes. All the time."

We can't imagine what it's like to live in her famously disastrous shoes, but having been given a chance by Oprah Winfrey herself to make a comeback, we thought we'd be seeing more positive progress from the "Mean Girls" star.

Instead, we see tear-filled tantrums and an argumentative sit-down with her father (whom she calls Mike).

"People have this image of me that it is chaos. I don't want all of the negative sh*t that's going on and the stress that might show through on camera," Lohan said.

Lohan's life looks pretty chaotic to us.

"This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen and I believed differently," Winfrey told cameras. "She doesn't understand, this is your life."

Keeping with the dramatic tune of the 2-minute, 14-second video, Winfrey sits with Lindsay and tells her, "My truth is, that I really do want you to win. If that isn't what you want, I'm okay with that. I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today."

Lohan assures her she wants to stay and Winfrey gives her one directive:

"You need to cut the sh*t."

Lohan agreed to be the subject of the reality show after sitting down with Winfrey last summer (see part of it below), post-release from a 90-day court-mandated rehab program.
