Oprah doesn't hold back in extended Lindsay Lohan 'Next Chapter' promo -- VIDEO

In the first promo for Lindsay Lohan’s appearance on Oprah’s Next Chapter, we got a taste of Oprah Winfrey’s no-holds-barred questions for the embattled actress, including “Are you an addict?” and asking Lohan what it’s like for her name to be the shorthand for “child star gone wrong.”

But that was only 16 seconds long. Now, an extended promo — though we still only hear Oprah’s questions, and no answers from Lindsay — offers a taste of even more of the sure-to-be-interesting chat. (Our favorite phrase from the video is when Oprah asks what Lindsay wishes she knew “six rehabs ago.” Ouch!)

Lindsay Lohan to guest-host 'Chelsea Lately'

Lindsay Lohan is about to be the queen of the small screen. First she lined up an interview and docu-series on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, and now she’s taking over E!’s Chelsea Lately as guest host next week, EW has confirmed.

The actress — whose latest movie, The Canyons, arrives in theaters Friday — will take the reins from host Chelsea Handler during Monday’s show. Lohan has a history with Handler: She made a run at a “comeback” (one of many attempted by the embattled celeb) at the 2010 MTV VMAs in a pre-taped opening with Handler, that year’s host. Check out the skit below:

'Late Show with David Letterman' books Lindsay Lohan

Late night TV isn’t generally kind to Lindsay Lohan — which may be why the actress hasn’t done a formal interview there (or anywhere else) since her Liz & Dick promotional tour last November. Happily, Lohan’s long absence from the airwaves will end Tuesday, April 9, when the Mean Girls star will stop by the Late Show to promote her upcoming appearance on Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management. (Her next stop: Rehab.)

Lohan hasn’t appeared on David Letterman’s couch since May of 2007, shortly before Georgia Rule‘s theatrical release and her first DUI arrest. In 2011, the actress drew criticism after supposedly withdrawing from a planned Late Show Top Ten bit; as Letterman himself eventually explained, Lohan had never actually agreed to read the Top Ten list in the first place.

Lohan-less Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton movie coming to the BBC

Reasons the BBC’s upcoming TV movie about one of Hollywood’s most famous couples will be different from Lifetime’s infamous 2012 film based on the very same pair:

1. This one is called Burton and Taylor, not Liz & Dick. (Surnames are classier.)

2. It stars The Wire‘s Dominic West and Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter in the title roles — rather than New Zealand-born actor Grant Bowler and certified train wreck Lindsay Lohan.

'Liz & Dick' ratings a little soft

liz-and-dick_510x317.jpg

Who’s afraid of Liz & Dick‘s ratings?

Lifetime’s critically trashed Elizabeth Taylor biopic starring Lindsay Lohan delivered 3.5 million viewers Sunday night.

The network points out Liz & Dick ranks as its fourth highest-rated original TV movie of 2012 — which is sort of a weak brag, considering all the advance hype. Liz & Dick delivered fewer viewers than Lifetime movies such as Steel MagnoliasDrew Peterson: Untouchable and Abducted: The Carlina White Story.

The film chronicles Elizabeth Taylor’s romance with Richard Burton from 1961 to 1984 and received hostile reviews, with critics bashing the stunt casting of Lohan as the silver screen legend. “No effort seems to have gone into Lohan’s preparation other than tinting her eyes Liz-violet,” marveled EW’s Ken Tucker.

It’s tough to say whether the negative reviews hurt or helped the film’s ratings since Lifetime’s original movie brand has long been about guilty pleasure titles, and surely many viewers tuned in precisely because they had to see what all the fuss was about.

'Liz & Dick' producer talks the risky business of hiring Lindsay Lohan, giving Taylor and Burton a chance to speak from 'Hollywood heaven'

On Sunday, Lifetime premieres Liz & Dick, its Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton biopic starring Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler. Exec producer Larry Thompson openly admits Lohan brought with her a younger demographic (and headlines) but also risk. He first met with Lohan about the project last December but cameras didn’t roll until June. “When we first met with her, she had two probations, and when we finally closed the deal with her, there was only one probation,” Thompson says. “If we couldn’t have gotten insurance, there would have been no movie. We wound up having to go to Lloyd’s of London to get what we called incarceration insurance…. We had to protect ourselves that if she were to have violated her probation during production, we wouldn’t have had to close down and lose our movie.” READ FULL STORY

The actress will be a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday, Nov. 20, EW has confirmed with NBC. Access Hollywood originally reported the news.

Barbara Walters set to interview Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan will sit down for a one-on-one chat with Barbara Walters in the next few weeks, a source close to the situation confirmed to EW. The talk is pegged to Lohan’s role in the Lifetime original movie Liz & Dick, premiering Nov. 25.

TMZ, who first reported the news, says Walters expressed an interest in interviewing Lohan when she was cast as Elizabeth Taylor, and that the chat will focus on the parallels between the two actresses.

The parallels have been discussed before – Lifetime’s advertising campaign for the television movie revolves around Taylor’s own troubles. READ FULL STORY

New 'Liz & Dick' trailer proclaims 'Lindsay is back'

In a new behind-the-scenes video for Liz & Dick, the producers point out the similarities between Elizabeth Taylor, and the woman who is portraying her, Lindsay Lohan. Touting “her first starring role in five years,” the video proclaims that “Lindsay is back.”

“It was the start of the exploitation of celebrity,” Grant Bowler, who portrays Richard Burton, explains. He also refers to Lohan as “pretty much Elizabeth Taylor reincarnated.”

“I’m a huge Elizabeth Taylor fan, and I relate to her on a lot of levels,” Lohan added. “Living in the public eye, dealing with the stress of what other people say, whether it’s true or not.”
