Ryan Seacrest pitching "meaningful" reality show to Lindsay Lohan
By Christopher Rocchio, 06/22/2009
Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew could apparently have some competition from Ryan Seacrest for Lindsay Lohan's services.
Both the American Idol host and oft-troubled actress revealed in separate Twitter postings that they met on Thursday night to discuss the possibility of collaborating on a new reality series.
"Met with lindsay last night about a show idea I have for her..it helps people and gives others a second shot! Still putting it all together," wrote Seacrest in a Friday post on Twitter.
"Working on a really great project for television- I am excited! Something meaningful like Extreme Home Makeover on ABC.. :)," Lohan wrote in her own Twitter post on Friday.
Seacrest would produce the project, sources told TMZ.com in a Saturday report. The show would follow a group of people "who are on the wrong track and are looking for a second chance."
A panel of judges -- including Lohan -- would ultimately decide who receives a $1 million prize, according to TMZ.
Last month, sources close to Lohan told ABC News that David Drew "Dr. Drew" Pinsky and Celebrity Rehab's producers were allegedly offering the actress "upwards of six figures" by to appear as a participant in an upcoming installment of the VH1 reality series.
