Lindsay Lohan to Join Celebrity Big Brother
According to the Daily Mail, the troubled star is in talks to join the UK show Celebrity Big Brother and producers have flown to L.A. to "lure her over the Atlantic." Lohan would follow in the footsteps of actress Tara Reid, who was a housemate in 2011.
"Lindsay would be an absolutely amazing signing for us," a source tells the Sunday Mirror. "She's a fiery character too, so there are sure to be a some major clashes with other celebrities if we get her in the house."
But whether Lohan agrees or not, there's one major holdup: The star has her plate quite full fulfilling the terms of her new probation and is not allowed to leave the country. (Celebrity Big Brother has a scheduled January 2012 shoot date.)
"We hope that the courts will make a special allowance in this case. There aren’t many more controlled environments than the Big Brother house," an insider tells the Daily Mail.
On November 2, L.A. County judge Stephanie Sautner ordered that so long as Lohan performs 12 days of community service at the L.A. county morgue and attends four psychotherapy sessions before December 14, she will avoid serving an additional 270 days in jail.
If Lohan complies, she will be required to spend an additional 12 days at the morgue and attend four more psychotherapy sessions by January 17. Once that is complete, she is expected to do the same before February 15.
Between February 15 and March 29, Lohan is expected to complete 17 more days at the morgue and attend six psychotherapy sessions, which will wrap up her probation.
