Lindsay Lohan: Already burned through her Oprah paycheck?

Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey

So true story: I’ve been steadfastly refusing to watch Lindsay Lohan‘s trainwreck reality TV show on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network, but all the writers on my Second City show have seen it and are dying over what a sh!t show it’s become. Honestly, I just can’t watch it because it’s turned into the “laugh as we give Lindsay every resource to succeed and then watch her fail!” Cringe inducing. Anyway, according to RadarOnline, this may all have been in vain as LiLo somehow managed to burn through her $2 Million paycheck from the show …

“Only Lindsay could get paid such a large paycheck and once again be in dire financial straits,” a source told RadarOnline exclusively. “After Lindsay’s manager, agent, publicist [and taxes] were paid … she was left with $750,000.

“This was last year, and Lindsay has never been able to save any money in her life. Her reality show has been sold overseas, but she will only get $250,000. That money gets divided up among her team, and Lindsay is left with less than $100,000.”

The insider said that LiLo “blows thru money faster than she spend it” with lavish, beyond-her-means, shopping excursions.

As we previously reported, the Mean Girls star over the weekend was declined — twice! — as she attempted to buy $300 worth of goods from Rag & Bone in Soho, New York Sunday.

How? How and why and WHAT? This makes no sense. How does Lindsay see a second chance dangle before her, for the one thing she wants most in the world, and then blows it? How does she get more money than most people will see in their entire lives and manage to blow through all of it in a matter of months? And most importantly, how does Lindsay get every privilege imaginable, only to completely squander it? I’ve never seen anyone stand in their own way quite as stoically as Lindsay. It’s like she painstakingly spends hours building a brick wall so that she can run into later and wonder why she keeps falling on her ass.
