From US Magazine:
Ryan Seacrest and Lindsay Lohan were spotted out together in Hollywood Thursday night, but it turns out that their meetup was strictly business.
“Met with Lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her ¦it helps people and gives others a second shot!” Ryan wrote on his Twitter page on Friday, one day after he and the actress went to H.Wood in L.A. “Still putting it all together.”
Lohan also mentioned details of the project on her Twitter page Friday.
“Working on a really great project for television — I am excited!” she wrote. “Something meaningful like Extreme Home Makeover on ABC ¦ :)”
According to TMZ.com, the premise of the potential series is that real people who are on the wrong track and looking for a second chance are given $1 million to make it happen. Lohan, no stranger to the concept, would likely serve on a panel of judges who hear contestants’ stories.
Hooking up with Seacrest won’t be the first time Lindsey has worked with somebody associated with American Idol. Kevin Covais, from Season 5, co-starred with her in the movie Labor Pains airing on the ABC Family channel this summer…
Anyway, Ryan’s foray into producing so far has been pretty cringeworthy. Keeping up with the Kardashians? Bromance, with that asshat, Brody Jenner? Chronicling the life of nobody Denise Richards in It’s Complicated? Pretty putrid stuff.
And now Ryan will be
exploiting helping effed up people change their lives, with the aid of the mega-trainwreck-in-progress that is Lindsay Lohan. Ryan should be proud!
