Rob Lowe Tells Oprah the Unforgettable Lesson Madonna Taught Him: VIDEO

Lowe

Actor Rob Lowe tells Oprah that he once went on a date with Madonna to a New York City nightclub where throngs of her fans had gathered to celebrate the release of her new album.

"I thought, 'This is it. This is the night. It's happening tonight. I'm the boy toy. I - am the boy toy.'"

When she invited him onto the dance floor with her, he refused, thinking her insane. She then turned around and told him something that has stayed with him to this day.

Oprah To Lindsay Lohan: 'Cut The B.S.' – VIDEO

Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey

Thanks to Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, Lindsay Lohan has been given another chance at repairing her public image via a reality show/documentary series titled Lindsay. However, the starlet who once couldn't go two minutes without being in photographs and tabloids is finding that sobriety has her shying away from the camera and shirking her responsibilities to the show. It finally got to the point where Winfrey herself had to fly in and have a sit-down with Lohan and set her straight...and the kid gloves came off.

O: [M]y truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do. If that isn't what you want, I'm OK with that. You know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave today.

L: No, it's not that I'm not ready to do that, I do want to.

O: You need to cut the bulls--t.

At a different point in the discussion, Winfrey even pulled out the f-bomb:

O: I believe that you believe that this is your time to turn this around for yourself. I believe that. I believed you when you told me that.

L: It is.

O: OK. Alright. If that is the case, then you're not going to be f--king up.

You can watch Oprah give Lindsay her much-needed talking-to, foul language and all, AFTER THE JUMP...
