Lindsay Lohan to Oprah: ‘I’m My Own Worst Enemy’

All aboard the Lindsay Lohan redemption express. Next stop: Oprah Winfrey’s couch.

In a much-publicized coup, the talk show queen’s OWN network will air an exclusive sit-down with her and the troubled “Canyons” star at 9 p.m. August 18.

The network is banking on this being such a ratings juggernaut that it will only release snippets of the interview to the press, including this mere 15-second video teaser that shows faces stern (Winfrey) and sad (Lohan), hard questions and Lohan’s meek “I’m my own worst enemy” response.

Winfrey’s interviews are routine wins for her network. According to Nielsen, her 2012 sit-down with Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina garnered 3.5 million views, while the first half of her two-part interview with Lance Armstrong in January brought in 3.17 million. Her 2012 interview with Rihanna had 2.5 million viewers.
