Celebrity Big Brother casting spoilers tease Dina Lohan, self-proclaimed ‘momager’ of Lindsay Lohan, could be one of the famous houseguests for its upcoming second season. It has been speculated that she might be in need of the money due to her current financial situation, which, is why it has been rumored that she has been considering signing on for CBB US 2.
Dina Lohan Files Bankruptcy – Needs Celebrity Big Brother Payday?
With debts estimated at over $1.7M, Dina was forced to file for bankruptcy in order to save her Long Island home. It was headed to the auction block in a lender foreclosure. Luckily for the reality star and mom to Lindsay Lohan, the bankruptcy stopped the process and the mansion remains in her name.
Dina revealed that she owed Pennymac Loan Services more than $1.5M for her mortgage on the New York property. Other debts included $45K to the IRS and $10K to a private school for her youngest kid. She also owes more than $20K in taxes to the states of California and New York.
Dina Lohan and Family History With Reality TV
The entire Lohan clan has taken their turn on the reality television rollercoaster, with Dina Lohan on CBB US alleged to be the latest in the string. In 2008, E! aired a show based around her and younger daughter Aliana Lohan (aka Ali Lohan) called Living Lohan. Her son Michael Lohan also appeared in several episodes.
There was only one season, but it gave viewers an inside look at the hectic lives of the Lohan family. Then Lindsay Lohan starred in her own documentary series titled Lindsay. The titular docu-series followed the former child star on her recovery after rehab, rebuilding her career and remaining sober.
Celebrity Big Brother – More Reality TV for the Lohans?
Even her ex-husband Michael Lohan did a brief stint on television. In 2011, he was on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and again in 2016 on a show called Family Therapy with Dr. Jenn. The two divorced in 2007 and Dina Lohan won custody of Aliana and youngest son Dakota Lohan.
In a recent Instagram post, Dina announced that “2019 is the year of the LOHAN.” So she might be referring to an upcoming stint on reality TV. This clan is no stranger to the limelight, even at its ugliest. Dina Lohan sat with Oprah Winfrey to discuss her oldest daughter’s issues. And Dina and Michael Lohan were on Steve Harvey’s couch to discuss Lindsay’s addiction.
Because she’s willing to chat about her most famous child’s personal drama on live TV, Dina Lohan could be the perfect CBB US houseguest.
Dina Following in Daughter Lindsay Lohan’s Footsteps?
Time and time again, Lindsay Lohan has shown that she is not afraid to do reality shows to make a living. Currently, the 32-year-old is starring in her own MTV series called Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club. As a result, she was able to pay off a $100K tax lien after signing onto the new show. Maybe that inspired Dina Lohan to turn to Celebrity Big Brother for a debt-relieving payday!
Given that she owes millions and her famous kid Lindsay Lohan is cash-strapped and can’t bail her out, it seems plausible that Dina would sign on for CBB US. Chatter online is that CBS offered Dina Lohan $100K for three weeks in the Celebrity Big Brother house. Plus the big prize is $250K. There’s also the shot to reignite her 15 minutes of fame.
Hopefully, fans will see Dina Lohan move into the Big Brother house on premiere night and she’ll bring the drama. Certainly we’ll bring you more casting scoops as they turn up in the days leading up to the CBB US premiere on January 21 only on CBS!
