Lindsay Lohan’s new reality show is deeply sad — but not for the reasons you might expect

This new MTV reality show follows Lindsay Lohan as she opens a beach club in Mykonos, Greece, and tries to reinvent herself as an entrepreneur. 

January 9 at 6:00 AM

When you hear “Lindsay Lohan” and “reality show” in the same sentence, another word that might come to mind is “disaster.” The troubled actress, known for her many legal entanglements and controversies, attempted a docuseries with Oprah Winfrey in 2014 — it did not go well. She’s also infamous for causing problems on sets; one director once likened it to being held hostage.

However, we can inform you: “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club,” which debuted on MTV Tuesday night, is actually not a disaster. Centered on the launch of Lohan’s new club in Mykonos, Greece, it’s a fairly standard — and unremarkable — entry into the “underlings work for a celebrity boss” genre of reality TV (see: “Vanderpump Rules”).

Still, the show is a deeply sad viewing experience. Just not for the reasons you might expect.

“Stop rehashing my past for no reason, because everything is different now,” Lohan recently told a Variety reporter, in response to a question about how Hollywood could help bring about equality for women. In an interview last month with Paper, her publicist asked the writer to mention that Lohan arrived “on time.”

Lohan’s new chapter is the theme of the first episode, which kicked off with the actress triumphantly perched on a boat in the sparkling blue sea: “I want to be my own boss,” she announced. So she and her business partner, Panos Spentzos, rounded up a group of American “VIP hosts” to work at Lohan Beach House, her third establishment in Greece. As these VIP hosts caused all sorts of unnecessary drama, the sadness seeped in when viewers learned what motivated Lohan to create the club; and also when it was made clear how damaged she is by her time in Hollywood.

In the opening segment, Lohan talked about why she loves Greece: “I’ve always loved the beauty and serenity I feel when I’m here,” she says. “Mykonos is the place to be . . . it’s beautiful, it’s open-minded, and most of all, it’s safe.”

If “safe” didn’t quite fit in with those other descriptors, it made sense later in the episode, when Lohan reminded Spentzos that he had known her since “I was hit on that beach.”

Spentzos turned serious as he told the camera about the violent incident in Mykonos that made headlines in 2016: “Three years ago, Lindsay was there on that beach with her ex-boyfriend. She got hit by him.”

“I was in a very tumultuous relationship. I was in a different place in my life,” Lohan explained. “Instead of crying or getting angry, I said, ‘I’m gonna own this beach one day.’ Because I always want everyone to feel safe.”

Lohan started to cry as she described bringing her mother to the beach club for the first time. “I made it something that is meaningful to me,” she said. Lohan then segued into her disappointment in the club’s new “VIP hosts,” who got drunk the first night of filming. “I don’t want these kids to [mess] that up for my family and my future.”

As the show went on, Lohan took on the role of the strict boss who didn’t have time for drunken antics and wouldn’t hesitate to fire anyone. (“I want to build an empire here, this is not ‘Girls Gone Wild.’ ”) Still, cast members repeatedly gushed about how lucky they were to be working for Lohan, and that they didn’t want to disappoint her.

“I grew up watching Lindsay, and when I was a little girl, I used to be like, ‘I want to be like her,’ ” said May Yassine, a waitress from New York. “Now I’m working for her. I still think this is a dream. “

This also came up again and again: Lohan has serious trust issues from years in the spotlight, particularly with people using her for their own gain. She moved to Dubai years ago, and during the episode’s after-show, she explained her reasoning: “I moved to Dubai because it’s illegal to take photos of people without their knowledge. That’s really important to me.”

In one scene, Lohan confronted the staff about their drunken pool party. Gabi Andrews, a bartender from Washington, admitted she was on the show for “selfish” reasons, and saw it as a steppingstone for her own career. Lohan wasn’t impressed.

Later, she fretted about cast members taking advantage of her. “Just like everyone watches me, I’m watching them. Camera’s flipped now,” she said defiantly.

Granted, it’s a reality series, so those sound bites could have easily been scripted — but it sounded like pretty real pain from someone who, as a child star, never had a shot at a normal life. As easy as it would be to write off “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” as yet another ridiculous show, when you consider everything that led the once-celebrated actress to this place, it actually just feels tragic.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "IT40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SBA  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?).

The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.

Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SBA.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later.

Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created.

Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 80,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 40,000 people we could pay them approx. $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 40,000 people a lot well yes it would be a lot of employees but with more money simply put into a trust account we could employ more people

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something.

The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content.

Further I promise to you and all who read this if we do prevail in the lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. We will use half of any monies we may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, we will use half of any monies we may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. We will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, we want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. One final note let me tell you about a new website coming to the world called IVAMP.org.... Thank you ttyl
