Will Lindsay Lohan appear on the UK’s ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ for a big payday?

From what I understand of British television, the show Celebrity Big Brother is a favorite piece of inelegant trash. Various C and D-list celebrities live together in the same house for a few weeks, and are filmed constantly, 24-7. Then the celebrities are voted off by… the public, I think? Tara Reid did the last season of Celebrity Big Brother, and she was one of the first voted off. That should tell you everything you need to know.

So, the rumor going around the British press today is that Lindsay Lohan may be joining the newest Celebrity Big Brother cast. Producers claim she’s “close to signing on” but…? What about her probation? What about the judge’s order that she shouldn’t leave the country? Is this the kind of “work” that the judge will allow?

Hollywood bad girl Lindsay Lohan is being lined up for a fate worse than jail… Celebrity Big Brother. The wild-child actress is ­considering a megabucks deal to appear on the Channel 5 reality show – if US courts allow her to leave the ­country.

Lindsay, 25, sees further incarceration, this time in a house with a bunch of celebs, as the perfect way to relaunch her career after FIVE stints in prison. Producers have flown to LA to meet the Mean Girls star. And they’ve already started shooting background footage of her in preparation for the next show in January. But TV bosses are worried the deal could fall through because Lindsay still has a sentence to complete after her last brush with the law.

The former child model spent four-and-a-half hours behind bars last month for violating a probation order imposed in 2007 after she was jailed for two counts of drink- driving. But she also has more than a month of community service to complete, which involves cleaning a Californian morgue.

Celebrity Big Brother executives hope to persuade the courts to let the troubled star come to Britain, arguing that the show will help her get her life back on track.

A TV insider said: “Lindsay would be an absolutely amazing signing for us. She’s a Hollywood A-lister and everyone knows about all the trouble she’s been in. She’s a fiery character too, so there are sure to be a some major clashes with other celebs if we get her in the house.”

The insider said Channel 5 chiefs were doing “everything possible” to make it happen.

“We want this to be the best Big Brother ever,” said our source. “So 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.”

[From The Mirror]

I’m going to go out on a crack limb here are say that even if the probation department, the judge and the entire state of California thought it was a good idea for LL to participate in this, she still wouldn’t. I will barely give LL credit for anything, but I think even The Cracken knows that this would be an unmitigated disaster, and that she should never EVER be filmed 24-7. Where could she do drugs? Where could she snort vodka? How would she get away with her crack lies and delusions when there was video evidence of what really happened? Well, the money would have to be really, really good for LL to even consider it.

    Urgh. Bitch is doing it the wrong way round, its Big Brother THEN Payboy.

  2. the original bellaluna says:

    At this point, it’s probably her ONLY offer (that doesn’t include beej’s and other sex acts).

    BUT the judge told her she couldn’t leave the state, right? I mean, even if she could permission, it would be wrong to foist her off on England. Wouldn’t want to start another war or anything.

    *waves to the Usual Suspects*

      Mornin belle

      Did you get my email yesterday in response to yours?

      No way in the SamRo Hell would Blohan give up drugs, not to mention, if BBUK is anything like the American version, the alcohol is dished out in miniscule amounts. Would there be any way to watch it here?

      I’m guessing the producers wouldn’t pony up a million because she’d probably be voted off first, although if I was voting, I’d NEVER vote her out.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Hello Bella and Madisyn!

        Apparently tha cameras in the toilet are turned off unless something suspect is going on. So, Blohan would probably smuggle in the good stuff and spend 95% of her time in the toilet stall with her pants down, so that the cameras wouldn’t catch her doing bumps.

    • txvxf says:

      Even if she can leave the country, will the UK allow her entry? They’re kinda funny about that sort of thing.

  3. ShanKat says:

    If she could get her opiates there…MAYBE. It’s pretty much the worst show ever. I watched the last one, the Tara Reid (and David Hasselhoff’s ex-wife, and Jedward…dreadful). Unwatchable past a few minutes.

    That said…I can hardly wait.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      She’d probably just just bring her adderal prescription. Then crush and snort in order to prevent withdrawl.

  4. bigorexia says:

    Oh, dear God, please let this be true!

  5. Soxfan says:

    She is aslo reportedly appearing on the Ellen show, December 15th.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Oh, that’s one I’ll DEFINITELY be DVR’ing. I cannot wait to see this!

    • Madisyn says:

      Thanks Soxfan, I just set the DVR. I’m assuming that since ‘Ellen’ is an NBC show, its filmed there, which means Blohan will be in Burbank, which is where I live, not 5 minutes from NBC. Thats a little too close for my comfort. I’ll be sure to not drive on the 15th.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Madisyn
        You should get tickets for that and heckle her from the audience ;)

      • LA me says:

        Madisyn
        Ellen is filmed at Warner Bros. Studio on Pass Ave/Olive. Her studio is where the giant Cartoon characters are painted all over the wall. Gate 2 I think.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Oh dear God, luv, stay off the road and get word to your friends and loved-ones! ;) (going to check my email now)

      • Madisyn says:

        LA me

        Warner, Disney, NBC, they’re all about 5 minutes away, although Waner’s is about 7. Thanks for the heads-up.

        Mort

        LMFAO! I was just *trying* to be funny about staying in. As I don’t watch the show (although I will that day), I would assume its ‘pre-recorded’. But I’ll be on the look-out for that black Porsche. If I see it, I’ll be sure to give her the ole ‘one finger salute’!

        Belle

        F*cking read your emails, you silly sod! I replied back, again.

  6. miriam says:

    Big Brother hasn’t had very good ratings since it move from Channel 4 to Channel 5, so I suppose it would benefit the producers immensely if Lilo joined. But as you say, how would she cope with being films 24/7? It would be terrible and she may have some sort of breakdown being in there and perhaps having to go cold turkey. It would make very good TV at least.

    • pinns says:

      Why would she have to go cold turkey? To get them on the show they prob let these Z-list idiots have their “prescription items”. They don’t get filmed in the toilet or shown taking a shower I think, so Cracken could stash it in the cistern and take a ‘comfort break’ whenever she wanted…

      And they often supply them with alcohol as a ‘reward’ [read: if they aren't being interesting enough].

      • miriam says:

        Perhaps you’re right. But that could still provide video evidence that she taking drugs if she starts behaving strange after popping to the loo.

    • LAK says:

      Do you remember when Vanessa Feltz went crazy in air? it was fantastic….(hangs head in shame)

      • miriam says:

        Yes, that was hilarious – what on earth was she writing on the table?!

        But with Lohan there would be even more scrutiny. It’s as if most people would be willing her to do something. People would probably try to keep her in as long as possoble just to see her reach breaking point.

  7. hillbilly in the corner says:

    Hollywood A -lister !!!! does the British list backwards and start a Z ?

    There’s not a chance in hell she will get permission..she had too many chances already …and it would be the worst stupidiest thing she could do…cameras 24 hrs a day ! besides they would have to allow her shadows in to…Patrick and Eleanor…cause she don’t even go to the bathroom without them…..

    • the original bellaluna says:

      And don’t forget Ali! She’d have to “babysit” Blohan, par usual.

    • zinjojo says:

      @hillbilly I was coming to comment on the same thing. A-lister? Ha ha ha. Only in her own mind and maybe Dina’s.

      I really hope she does this show, it would be so freaking hilarious.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        I also like “child model.” At this point, no one even bothers referring to her as an actor.

    • Girl says:

      Exactly what I was thinking. Even at her best, was she ever A-list? Even compared to the other train wrecks on these BB-type shows.

  8. Jules says:

    She’s been awfully quite lately. She must be recovering from her latest plastic surgery.

    • Kimbob says:

      Wow….@Jules…you may be right! I didn’t think/even consider that. But, you are most correct that she’s been ducking the radar the past few days, right?

    • Madisyn says:

      I think she’s being ‘radio silent’ due to PB not wanting the over exposure that is Blohan.

      But you definetly could be onto something with the plastic surgery theory. Of course, if your right, than MY theory that she’s not doing her CS is also correct.

      All will be revealed Dec. 14th.

      • boo says:

        @Madisyn, I think you’re right, I’ve thought of that also, that PB does not want Lilo to get into any of her regular shenanigans until this PB spread (ick nast) comes out. In other words don’t overshadow our issue by your usual crack drama. I have not read anything Lilo related in weeks, and that’s just not our little cracken, she has the paps on speed dial doesn’t she? So, yeah, I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.

      • Madisyn says:

        Boo

        That ‘other shoe’ you refer to, its coming, don’t worry, its coming the second the PB issue hits the stands and that check clears, trust!

      • Boo says:

        Hey Mad, just wanted to let you know there are two Boos here–I am capital B Boo and the other is a little B (I am Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer, too).

        I just hope our young friend has not done her CS…I just can’t believe there are NO pap pictures of her at CS for weeks…you know that makes me think she was not there. The paps have got to be looking for her.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    I NEVER watch reality TV but I would watch it at least to start. This would be too good to miss! But I doubt she will do it because she can’t finish anything.

  10. brin says:

    I would love it if she did, but I agree that she won’t. She’s delusional but even Crackie knows it’s a bad idea.
    *Hi bellaluna!*

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Hi brin! Yeah, for someone who complains about the constant presence of the paps (because she has them on speed-dial) I don’t think she’d like a 24/7 camera crew monitoring her cracknanigans.

      Too much evidence for the court, you know. ;)

  11. Cathy says:

    Gonna have to have a few cracktinis and have a good laugh over this one. \_/\_/\_/ Thank you Skank we knew we could count on you to do something stupid.

  12. Lacey says:

    LOL this story is hilarious! Linnocent is my favorite :-)

  13. yael says:

    i love how media has used “mean girls star” and “troubled starlet” so often (since lilo hasn’t done anything else noteworthy) that they’re now referring to her as a “former child model”.

    • Madisyn says:

      I too, picked up on the ‘FORMER CHILD MODEL’. They didn’t even bother with ‘actress’, of course if they did, they’d need to use ‘FORMER actress’.

  14. KaitX says:

    It’s probably Ali that would go! I actually think it would be a horrible thing to see Linnocent exposed like that, she needs to resolve her issues in private

    • miriam says:

      I think they have to be over 18, isn’t Ali 17? Besides, who would tune in to see her.

      I must admit, if this ever did happen with Lilo, I would definitely watch.

  15. HannahF says:

    Hmm. So many thoughts on this. Sautner said LL couldn’t leave Cali w/o permission from the Probation Dept. and that she could not leave the country period. That said, as Shawn noted, LL does support her family so perhaps Sautner might relent as LL has OBVIOUSLY learned her lesson and is now sooooooo serious about getting her life on track.

    With respect to the 24 hr monitoring interfering with her “lifestyle,” don’t forget who we are dealing with here. Normal rules don’t apply to Lindsay–only to commoners. She is delusional enough to think she could drink and drug in the House. “Move that camera, I’m Lindsay Lohan!!”

    • Danielle says:

      Wow,its been a long crackin time…hello everyone.

      HannahF–to my knowledge crackie is allowed to leave the country, if she can prove it is for work (legitimate work) that is, not coke whoring. Sautner did say that.

    • Madisyn says:

      I would hope that Sautner wouldn’t be persuaded to change her directive of not leaving the country, that LL supports her family because Dina is too lazy to get a job. I’d be willing to bet the judge doesn’t give a damn.

      The judge was clear about not leaving the country. She can leave the STATE, if the probation dept. OK’s it and PROVES its for work, but under no circumstances can she leave the country.

      • Madisyn says:

        All four of us have our CONES, how bitchen is that? (yes, I said ‘bitchen’, I’m a valley girl, sorry, can’t help it)

  16. samira677 says:

    I don’t believe this story. CBB has been saying for years Lindsay was going to be on the show and she hasn’t. Frankly I can’t believe that the court would let her out of the country. Besides I can’t imagine that Lindsay would allow herself to be taped 24/7.

    • Lady D says:

      If you read the comments under the Daily Mail story, they say that this show has been trying for years to get her and its all for publicity for the show.

  17. e.non says:

    she thinks appearing on this program will get her back into the good graces of hollywood? she’s nuts — it does prove how she’ll do anything — anything — to get attention.

  18. KJ says:

    Unrelated note – I’ve always loved how the British say “drink-driving.” it sounds so much more elegant than “drunk driving.”

    Related note – jersey shore and real world castmembers, and I’m sure loads of other reality characters, have been able to sneak drugs on set. There’s actually a fairly sordid history of all kinds of illegal doings that go on during these types of shows. I doubt filming would interfere with her “sobriety” or lack thereof.

  19. teehee says:

    But in there runs the risk of all her crack shenanigans and delusions being overtly exposed…. and she dont want that…

  20. UKHels says:

    there are supposed to be psychological assessments done on those going into the BB house after a number of *ahem* breakdowns

    I can’t imagine this trick getting past anyone, she’s clearly unwell

    the british public is starting to backlash against programmes that are equivalent to paying a penny to go and watch the lunatics at the asylum…

  21. G says:

    HI ALL

    Excellent publicity stunt. It”s no skin off BB to offer Lohan a big payday, when they know she can’t travel. And she gets the benefit of thinking it makes her look desirable and employable?

    I call PR BS.

  22. Madisyn says:

    Its fun to imagine the possibilites but its NEVER gonna happen

    1. The judge would never humilate herself to allow her to leave the country and not do her CS after the judge went to all the trouble of planning out a detailed CS schedule.

    2. Blohan thinks shes ‘above’ reality TV and thinks she’s ‘above’ the other contestants. Thats why she never appeared on ‘Living Lohan’. (she’s not, she just thinks she is)

    3. No Ali, no Eleanor,(she can’t even wipe her own ass) so thats out.

    4. Can’t drink and drug at her lesure.

    I could go on but you get the gist. Feel free to add to the list.

    • ahoyhoy says:

      5. Can’t turn tricks.

      • Madisyn says:

        Oh, I wouldn’t bet AGAINST THAT! She’s a wily one, our little Cracken. After ‘negotiating’ a price in the loo, its under the covers. Since ‘delusion’ to a Lohan is like oxygen to the rest of us, she’d believe she ‘can’t be seen by the cameras’, like most of the other contestants who think their ‘fooling’ everyone and can’t be seen.

  23. Chile says:

    DOes anyone else notice that Lindsey is looking like Brooke Mueller?

  24. Juliesunflower says:

    Kaiser, Kaiser! That was so b*tchy, I think I have twisted my inside from laughing. Someone pass me a cracktini !

  25. Ruby Red Lips says:

    I really hope this is true…as disturbed as it may be, I would def watch BB if Linnocent was in it…would def be a ratings hit & can u imagine if she was kept in for the whole period, how her real personality would ‘shine’ through…*evil cackle* ;)

    Cracktinis and crackmopolitans on me ladies for the train wreck ‘career ending’ trash this would be..(yeh ok I know technically Linnocents career is hooking now, but it just sounded good!!!)

    • Ruby Red Lips says:

      Also I just have to add as a Brit, BB is the lowest form of ‘entertainment’ for a bunch of wannabe z-listers – it is dire, so def shows how low Linnocent has fallen to even consider this

    • Madisyn says:

      Evening Ruby

      Your asleep now but you’ll see this in the morning. Oh, her true ‘personality’ would be apparent from day one, wouldn’t even have to wait towards the end. Plus, why do you think I’D NEVER VOTE HER OUT?

      This would NOT be a ‘career ender’, as its already D.O.A.

      *evil cackle* indeed!

  26. Seal Team 6 says:

    OMG — PLEASE!

    Does BBCA show this? If not, can it be watched online???

  27. Bess says:

    As much as BB would love to have Blohan in the cast, there’s no way she’d do it. She considers herself above reality tv.

    Also to add to Mad’s list:

    #5 sharing a house with strangers mean that she can’t “entertain” her clients at home.

  28. LAK says:

    Dear God, let this be true. Last year’s CB was dreadful, but this is Christmas 2012 come early……:)

  29. dorothy says:

    At this point we all know Lohan will do anything for a buck, she has no choice…she has no career left.

  30. Jeanette says:

    I disagree..I think this girl believes her own lies, and is so delusional that she thinks she can totally straighten up for this and that it would be good for her..

  31. G says:

    While I think this is BS, I can see one advantage. She couldn’t show up late for work.

  32. Bess says:

    Linnocent’s court date on December 14 is going to be interesting. If she has actually done more that what’s absolutely required of her, I will be speechless.

    • Madisyn says:

      ‘Speechless’, you, me and most others here. ‘Conspiracy Me’ would wonder if she somehow ‘bought’ her way out of this CS due to not ONE camera capturing a morgue red carpet entrance stroll? TMZ? ROL? X17? Not one?

      This has to go on till April, so we’ll see how long she can keep this up IF she did her CS requirements THIS MONTH. As I was one of the first to point out, Dec. will be the true test with the 2 holidays at the end of the month.

      A week from Wed., all will be revealed, and I for one, CAN’T WAIT to see the ‘magic number’ of CS sessions completed.

      Don’t forget to DVR ‘Ellen’ on the 15th. Wouldn’t it funny if the twits in jail when the interview airs the next day? I wonder if they’d pull it?

  33. skuddles says:

    I think Lindsay Lohan would appear on ANYONE’S big brother for any kind of payday…

  34. JaneWonderfalls says:

    When your a celebrity who once could have been considered an A- list celeb, when you do a reality show that is not even focused on just you, you know your career is official dead. I know she is desperate for money but this would be just the nail on the coffin.

  35. Bess says:

    indsay Lohan will NOT be heading to Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother, the actress’ rep confirms to X17online.

    Lilo’s rep, Steve Honig, tells X17 exclusively:

    “She is not doing Big Brother; this was a rumor.”

    According to false online reports, the 25-year-old actress was going to fill the spot formerly held by troubled starlet Tara Reid who left the show earlier this year. Sorry Lilo fans … the Mean Girls star won’t be living in front of the cameras!

    Honig adds:

    “She has been diligently going to the morgue and is ahead of her community service schedule. Her issue of Playboy is out in a few weeks and a few movie deals are expected in the next month or so.”
