Lindsay Wells Up On TV Following Support From Mentor Oprah

Lindsay Lohan has had her ups and downs, but was reduced to happy tears after prank calling her mentor Oprah Winfrey while being interviewed on the David Letterman show.

After the Mean Girls actress discussed her new mini-series being recorded by Oprah's OWN network, David Letterman convinces the 27 year old to ring her mentor. Putting on a woman's voice, Letter claims to be Lohan's assistant before owning up to his real identity.

Asking how 'our friend' Lindsay was doing since rehab, Oprah opened up on her pride at the star's attempts to turn her life around:

"I think she's doing OK ... What do you think? ... I think she's doing really OK. I think to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life and you're trying to pull your life together, I think that's a really difficult thing.

"We're really pleased that she's making some progress."

The support obviously meant a lot to Linday who welled up on the spot. Take a look for yourself.

Nice to see Lindsay picking things up again...
