Oprah's patience with Lindsay Lohan is wearing thin.

In the first full trailer for the new OWN docu-series "Lindsay," the media mogul stops by Lohan's New York digs to have a heart-to-heart, and calls the former child star out on her post-rehab antics.

Oprah's appearance in the trailer begins with her in a car on the way to see Lohan. An assistant is reading a list of issues the filmmakers have had to deal with while following the "Mean Girls" star as she attempts to rebuild her life and career.

"She has changed things every single day," the assistant reveals to Oprah. "Not following the rules that they agreed to. Not participating, She wouldn't commit to the shoot next week so they had to cancel it."

"This is exactly what everybody said would happen and I believed differently," Oprah responds, adding, "She doesn't understand: This is your life!"

Winfrey sits down with Lohan and tells "The Canyons" star exactly how she feels. "I really do want you to win. I really do," she says. "If that isn't what you want, I'm OK with that. You know, I will tell [the film crew] to pack up and leave today."

"No, it's not that I am ready to do that," Lohan replies.

"You need to cut the bull****," Oprah shoots back. "You really do."

"Lindsay" debuts Sunday night on OWN and follows the 27-year-old as she moves from California to New York in the months following her court-ordered rehab stint.

"There's nothing left in having a drink for me," Lohan says at the beginning of the clip. "What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to.

"I don't want them following me to an AA meeting," she says of the seemingly ever-present paparazzi.

"Do you ever feel like a prisoner?" Lohan is asked. "Yes, all the time," she replies with a sigh.

Lohan's parents Dina and Michael Lohan also appear in the trailer, as does her sober coach who is asked if the starlet is still sober. "You know," he says with a shrug, and then the clip ends. 

With "Lindsay," the stakes are high for both Lohan and Oprah's OWN.

OWN's docu-series comes 6 months after Lohan's first post-rehab tell-all interview on "Oprah's Next Chapter." The sit-down drew an average audience of only 892,000 viewers according to Nielsen. Touted as a huge get for the network, it pales in comparison to Oprah's prior, other high-profile interviews.

Winfrey drew around 3.1 million viewers for the first of a two-night interview with Lance Armstrong after he admitted to taking performance-enhancing drugs while winning seven Tour de France races.

Winfrey’s 2012 sit-down with Whitney Houston’s family following the singer’s untimely death drew a network-record 3.5 million viewers and a 2013 interview with Rihanna garnered 2.4 million.

"Lindsay" airs Sunday, March 9 on OWN.
