There’s no denying that Oprah Winfrey is one of the most successful, influential and beloved TV hosts of all time.

That said, we can’t think of a better role model for Lindsay Lohan, whose sources tell Perez Hilton that the media mogul has become a hands-on mentor for the starlet after she signed on for a tell-all interview and TV docuseries for Oprah’s OWN network.

With her latest court-ordered stay in rehab now under Lohan’s belt, an inside source says that the 27-year-old is now “doing everything Oprah tells her to do.  She really wants to get back to living a normal life and not being around negative people.”

Lohan demonstrated this healthy decision-making Monday when she cancelled a previously-planned European vacation after Oprah convinced the young star that the trip would likely cause her to relapse. 

According to Perez, Oprah said Lindsay is “in the best place that I’ve ever seen her.  I believe that she believes that she is now ready. And she admitted that there were other times when she was pretending to be ready and not quite sure... I think this is the first time I could see it really benefited her."

So what do you think of this unexpected Oprah/LiLo team-up?  Please share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!
