Lindsay Lohan signs up for her own podcast, how long before she bails?

Lindsay Lohan exits the Mercer Hotel for a night out

There has been an effort to rehabilitate Lindsay Lohan’s image and career for several years now. I believe the younger people simply weren’t paying attention to Lindsay’s Cracken Years, and they have a misconception that perhaps Lohan was a victim of tabloid culture and child-actor drama. Honestly, all things can be true: in some ways, Lohan is a victim and in other ways, Lohan was always the unprofessional, chaotic, narcissistic a–hole. I bring up this rehabilitation effort because people keep making the mistake of counting on Lindsay to suddenly work or be a professional, like 2007-2017 never even happened. I guess every generation needs to learn that Lohan is a grifter con artist who will take the money and run. Speaking of, a podcast studio has signed Lindsay up to do a podcast. How many pods will she do before she bails? I think maybe three?

Lindsay Lohan is to get behind the microphone with her own podcast. The actress is launching the untitled audio series with Red Arrow Studios’ Studio71 with tentative plans to launch later this year or early next year. Lohan is set to “share her authentic voice” and listeners will get “a chance to experience a never-before-seen side” of the Parent Trap star.

It comes after Lohan signed up to star in a new Netflix rom-com feature about a newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter after getting total amnesia in a skiing accident.

Studio71, which is behind podcasts such as The Bald and the Beautiful with Trixie Mattel and Katya Zamo, Brittany Furlan’s Worst Firsts and Bob Saget’s Here For You, will develop, produce and distribute the series. The Red Arrow-backed first is ramping up its investment in female hosts after data indicated that its slate of shows are appealing to a younger, female demo, compared to the traditionally male-skewing podcasts. It found that 75% of the network’s listeners are between the ages of 18 and 34 and 55% are female.

“I’m excited to partner with Studio71 in the development and production of my podcast,” said Lohan. “I’m looking forward to connecting with more of my fans and having intimate conversations with friends and thought leaders across all industries.”

Lindsay would genuinely be a good podcaster, she knows tons of gossip and she could really tell some stories. The problem is that it’s a job and Lindsay will have huge issues showing up for any kind of job. By the second podcast recording, she’ll be faking an illness to get out of it and by the fourth recording, Lindsay will be on a flight back to Dubai or wherever the f–k she lives now. Remember when MTV got into bed with LL for her Club Lohan series? LOL. Lindsay basically created a half-assed beach club, showed up drunk for a reality show, then the scam was over in a few months and MTV got the hell out. The beach club is no more. This podcast is gonna be like that, only worse.

    My guess is she ran out of money and was looking for a new influx of cash. I hope they have a good contract signed to protect themselves.

  2. Robyn says:

    Checked in on her the other day. She’s still in Dubai and doing some work with jewelry. Is she popular in Dubai with uhhhh, the more savory circles?
    The beach club is still going afaik. You can still book and she’s shilling it pretty recently.

  3. Mac says:

    I will be surprised if she records even one podcast. This just isn’t her kind of grift.

  4. Jay says:

    Is she trying to start a #freelindsay movement, after the focus on Britney? She is someone I genuinely feel sorry for, but she has also consistently squandered any chances that have been offered, and there have been many.

  5. MarciaB says:

    Totally agree. You are what you are and people believing in rehabilitation will be endlessly disappointed. It is hard to accept when someone is so talented and likeable on screen that they can be, as you describe, a grifter. It’s just like those who thought Whitney Houston was some sort of victim of kniving Bobby Brown and thought that once she was rid of him, she’d be the old Whitney again, but she was always responsible for her own fate. The guy only victim was her little girl.

    • Renee says:

      Agreed MarciaB. Lindsey has squandered any goodwill coming her way. I feel the same about Whitney Houston as your statement above. She was responsible for her own fate.

  6. Kate says:

    She looks like she’s 60 years old

  7. RedWeatherTiger says:

    I can’t imagine anyone would want to listen to that decades-worth-of-cigarettes-and-booze and gargled-with-ground-glass voice of hers, but I guess one never knows.

  8. Leskat says:

    I wouldn’t even listen to one, just for fun. I can’t listen to her weird affected accent and pack a day voice. She would have some good gossip, I bet, but I wouldn’t expect her to make herself notes and an outline about what to talk about. I also wouldn’t expect her to check dates and facts or do any background work. I don’t think she realizes that there’s actual work that goes into podcasting, not just sitting in front of a mike and chatting. Those types of podcasts are like overhearing a weird convo on the bus. She won’t last.
