Lindsay Lohan’s ‘Vanderpump Rules’-type reality show is really happening

Madrid Fashion Week - Malne - Celebrity Sightings

I don’t watch Vanderpump Rules, but I amuse myself by pretending it’s a really shady reality show about terrible “pretty” people who work fake jobs at a restaurant to cover up the fact that they’re all drug dealers. Isn’t that what it’s really about?!?! That’s always been the undercurrent I’ve felt. That’s the subtext. But here’s the thing: Lindsay Lohan doesn’t do subtext. She only does TEXT. So when Lindsay Lohan told the New York Times last month that she wants to do a Vanderpump Rules-type reality show, I thought “oh, so we’ll be seeing her openly doing and selling drugs at a nightclub?” Plus all of the other stuff about how Lindsay supports herself these days, which involves a lot of wealthy johns in Europe and the Middle East. How would a reality show even deal with all of that? Well, good news: we’re going to find out. Lohan’s reality show is apparently moving forward.

Lindsay Lohan’s planned reality series based on her new resort business in Greece is moving forward and will start shooting in ­August, sources exclusively tell Page Six. Sources told us that Bunim/Murray Productions — which has made such hits as “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and “Road Rules,” as well as Dina and Ali Lohan’s short-lived “Living Lohan” — will be behind the show for MTV. Lindsay hinted in a recent New York Times profile that she had a series for MTV in mind, but did not elaborate on any details.

“Lindsay is telling pals that she has a signed deal for a new reality show,” said a source. “Bunim/Murray is producing, and it’s about Lindsay’s new beach club in Greece.”

The source added that the series — “a cooler, hipper, edgier ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ ” presumably with Lohan at the center as the Lisa Vanderpump-like character — will start filming at her new Lohan Beach House on Mykonos in August. The source said the show will introduce Lohan and the central characters while the Mykonos scene is in full swing — and then, after the summer, will shift to follow Lohan and her crew going about launching a new location of the beach club. Reports have said Lohan is opening another location in Rhodes, Greece, soon. She also previously licensed her name to an Athens club.

“The show will have this European flavor to it,” said an insider. “Lindsay feels that it’s not so uptight like filming in Los Angeles or New York, and they can get a better cast of characters.” The source said there could be “a lot of English” guest stars, as they are closer to the Greek party scene. Lohan has designed every aspect of the Mykonos club, reports have said, down to the playlists.

Such a mess. I can already predict the falling out in the coming months – Lindsay will throw something at a cameraman, she’ll break some expensive piece of equipment, she’ll show up late for filming, the cameras will catch her doing lines while she downs a bottle of vodka. All of it will be messy and crazy and Lohan. MTV shouldn’t have even bothered. As for this being a “cooler, hipper, edgier ‘Vanderpump Rules’” – girl, stop. Vanderpump Rules is crazy-popular with key demographics. What is the audience for a reality show about Lindsay Lohan doing drugs in Mykonos with random British Z-listers? I’m really asking, because I don’t think this is what “the kids” want to see, at all.

    There are probably hundreds of amazing ideas being pitched for new shows that will never see the light of day, and yet someone felt it was necessary to give this trick ANOTHER show so we can all confirm again what a joke she is.

  2. Patricia says:

    I would watch it! I’ll always watch this train wreck. It’s… an addiction 🤷🏼‍♀️

  3. RBC says:

    Hopefully we will find out what happened to Ali Lohan and her “modeling “ career.

  4. Sarah says:

    Girlfriend’s face is truly an anti-drug/alcohol/hard living campaign.

    And anyone stupid enough to work with LL at this point deserves all the trouble that comes with it. I’ll believe this story when it airs. 🙄

  5. Kirsten says:

    I love reality tv. It’s my guilty pleasure that I don’t feel guilty about! I can’t wait to watch this train wreck.

  6. Rescue Cat says:

    Aww. It’s good to see Lilo on Celebitchy again. It reminds me of when I first started coming to this site and she was a regular feature.

  7. Kate says:

    How many chances will she get?

  8. A says:

    I love how her veneers are starting to go yellow. I would think that it would take a lot for that to happen.

  9. Naptime says:

    In all those throwback photos with Paris that keep resurfacing, she was by far the younger and more beautiful one. What the hell happened to her? She looks like a completely different person.

  10. Al says:

    Does anyone else feel like Paris is angling for a spot on this show? Or maybe they have already begun working on the “script” and Paris drama will be a part of it.

  11. Veronica S. says:

    Its almost like progress, guys – this trainwreck of a human being keeps finding work just like all of the violent, alcoholic men in Hollywood.

    j/k I’d rather them all get fired and the standard be raised.

  12. Neelyo says:

    On her Oprah show, all of the drama (aka drugs) happened in her off limits bedroom. Where is she going to hide on this show?

    It won’t be worth watching because none of it will be close to reality.

    • Renee says:

      Yes, I remember that. Unfortunately, I watched the entire run of that show. Ughhh…..

      • hunter says:

        I LOVED the Lindsay Oprah show. LOVED IT.

        For the first time everyone could see what a shady grifter she was and what an incredibly unpleasant and untrustworthy personality she truly has. There was so much stuff on there where I was like “ohhhh that’s the 7am party” look.

  13. mint says:

    Lohan should accept the fact, that her career is gone. No one cares about her anymore

  14. Ms says:

    This is terrible, and exploitative. No, I do not want to watch this woman who clearly has multiple mental health issues f*** up her life for an audience.

  15. Winnie Cooper's Mom says:

    I’m weirdly excited about this and hope it’s the sh*t show we are all expecting. I watched the Oprah one she had a few years ago and it was crazy! She’s a drugged up lunatic.

  16. Lazy af rn says:

    I’m defos her demographic for this! Since finding out about this over the weekend I’ve mentioned it to anyone who’ll listen. Gotta love a train wreck

  17. sara6 says:

    I follow her on Instagram. She has calmed down since her 20s, even her late 20s. She was just in a UK comedy show with Rupert Grint and she has started her business and perhaps found God in Islam. I just have compassion for addicts. They are not like the men who were exposed during the MeToo movement, so it seems wrong to treat her with that kind of venom.

    • The Original G says:

      I agree and I suspect she’s a major MeToo victim herself. Unfortunately, I don’t think that humouring her delusions is helpful either.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      While Lohan has been a major victim of HW predators it doesn’t mean we should excuse her terrible behaviour. She can be a victim and a terrible person.

    • Veronica S. says:

      She’s probably a victim but honestly, addiction involves a level of choice. Her behavior where court orders and industry is concerned reveal an awful lot about her personal character, which is not surprising given how shit her parents are.

    • Naomi11 says:

      I have zero sympathy for this chick. She had many chances, and failed them all. She deserves everything that has happened to her. She’s only a victim to her own stupidity and behavior. I have no doubt if this show is legit happening, it will fail miserably.

    • jwoolman says:

      I think she has been much quieter recently, too. I’ll reserve judgement about the train wreck until the train really does jump the track.

  18. Lara says:

    Did anyone see the tweet she did where she threatened to fire a staff member for wearing the wrong shoes? Yeah I’m def gonna watch this if it happens..

    • Pandy says:

      Yes, especially because the “right” shoes were these godawful white sandals … the nude sandals worked SO much better!

  19. The Original G says:

    Remember when Lindsay couldn’t even show up for her Oprah show that filmed her OWN actual life?

    I’ll believe this when it’s on the TV schedule. I remember all the times her projects were **definitely happening.**

  20. tealily says:

    “Cooler, hipper, edgier… European flavor,” this chick… I can’t.

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    Oh yes Lindsay is so cool, hip and edgy. Are those cold sores on her lips?
    I actually watch Vanderpump Rules and never got the impression they were drug dealers. Drug USERS for sure.

  22. Grey says:

    The face in that header photo is not a sober face.

    i will watch this. I thought her OWN docuseries was such a great tool for proving my instincts right that she is a sociopathic, narcissistic, mentally unstable, creepy, pathological addict. it was riveting. i hope to see more of her disgusting behavior with her old male “friends” hanging about.

    • minx says:

      I feel no sympathy for her. She’s had many, many opportunities and she’s thrown them away.

  23. shanaynay says:

    Can’t wait for this trainwreck.

  24. Mle428 says:

    Omg in the last 2 pics, her left nostril looks so red and raw. Hmmmmm…..I wonder why.

  25. raincoaster says:

    This deal is just so Lohan can write off the cost of buying the building and doing the renovations and buying a million unflattering outfits, etc. It’s a money-laundering machine for her oligarch friends, her Dubai friends, her Turkish friends, etc, etc. She’s been running around the world collecting them like charms on a bracelet, and they’ll ALL invest. She’ll make a fortune, because money launderers charge like 30% minimum, and if the club actually does any business from hotties looking to get on camera, bonus!

  26. Bread and Circuses says:

    She’s enough of a mess, it might be riveting.

    But she would need to show up for work, and Lohan has trouble with that, even when the work is feeding her narcissistic needs.

  27. Lee Kuhl says:

    I have one question, WHY?

  28. raincoaster says:

    Does she just never take a good picture anymore, or are we always using the bad ones deliberately?
