Lindsay Lohan is reportedly in talks of signing a million-dollar contract with Harper Collins to write a memoir about her troubled life.
Apparently, this will be cool mil for the “Liz & Dick” actress who has been documenting her life in a journal during her stay in rehab (2013), and that diary will be the core for Lohan’s memoir.
“It’s more or less an autobiography, but she had a minimal number of sample pages,” a publishing source Page Six.
Lindsay’s agent, Scott Waxman, met with several publishing houses and tried to get a deal for $5 million, but no one would bid that high. “There was initial interest, but everybody backed off. There was concern she wouldn’t deliver,” Williams said.
While Harper Collins had no comment, Lindsay’s publicist, Tej Herring, also confirmed the report by saying, “there have been some conversations, but nothing official yet.”

Lindsay is seen reading from her journal to her mother, Dina, on her eight-part reality show, debuting Sunday night on OWN. The series chronicles Lohan’s struggle to stay sober and resurrect her career.
In a two-minute trailer for the program, a producer is heard telling Oprah Winfrey, “She has changed things every single day. [She’s] not following the rules . . . not participating.” Replies Winfrey: “This is exactly what everybody said was going to happen. And I believed differently.”
