Oprah has mentored numerous people: Dr. Oz, Suze Orman, Dr. Phil, Nate Berkus and the students at her school in South Africa, to name a few. Now, Lindsay Lohan can look to her for guidance as well, according to Lohan's mother Dina.

Last week, OWN announced that Lohan will star in an eight-part docu-series about her recovery, which will air in 2014. Oprah has also landed the first interview with Lohan post-rehab, which will tape and air in August.

Dina Lohan commented on the deal to the New York Post. "If there’s any mentor you could choose, there’s nobody better than Oprah," she said. "This is a great opportunity for Lindsay. We are all very excited about it."

Lindsay Lohan reportedly received $2 million for her OWN docu-series, according to TMZ on Tuesday.

Sources told the celebrity gossip website that the network's talks with the troubled star spanned four months, and that she signed the deal at the Betty Ford Center where she was doing rehab. As part of the arrangement, Lohan also reportedly received "two fully-paid assistants and a stylist."

Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days of rehab earlier this year for lying to a police officer and reckless driving. She entered the Betty Ford Center in May, and has since moved to the upscale Cliffside Malibu rehab facility to complete the rest of her program.
