Lindsay Lohan Relapses, Life Coach Quits In Frustration

During last Sunday’s episode of her Oprah Winfrey-produced reality show Lindsay, Lindsay Lohan tearfully admitted to an alcohol relapse after prodding from her life coach AJ Johnson. The troubled actress was initially furious when Johnson confronted her with claims of having found wine. Lohan also said that her mother, Dina, reported that she had been drinking during a recent dinner.

Lohan objected to the unscripted questioning and ignored Johnson for a week while traveling to Los Angeles, where she was photographed by paparazzi lunging towards a bottle of wine while on the trip. Lohan claimed she was simply “reaching for her bag,” but a month later the photos surfaced and the troubled actress finally admitted to the brief relapse.

“I rushed into a relationship…and I jumped right into a relationship where we weren’t on the same page. I wasn’t considering the fact that this person I was seeing does drink and yeah…I had some wine,” she said. “Yeah, fuck it, I screwed up and that’s OK. [I’ll] try and stop it happening again. That’s a part of life.”

But even after admitting a relapse, Lohan continued to ignore Johnson and felt the life coach “disrespected me by asking things on camera that were a bit personal.” After being stood up when she expected Lohan to stay with her, the two got into an emotional argument which resulted in Johnson quitting her job.

“Sometimes it’s better to leave before it gets ugly. I’m calling Lindsay a friend right now, but I feel like there is no consideration,” Johnson said. “It’s like a few months ago when I almost quit because she wouldn’t fucking talk to me. I told her, ‘I have to talk to you to do my job.’ [I cannot help] Lindsay unless she is open to receiving.”

Lohan’s out of control behavior has lead to Oprah Winfrey stepping in and issuing an ultimatum. A trailer for Lindsay released last month showed Winfrey flying out to Long Island to meet personally with the actress and ordering her to clean up her act under threat of canceling the show. “My truth is that I want to see you win. I really do,” said Winfrey. “[But] you really need to cut the bullshit.”
