Is Lindsay Lohan transitioning from being an actress to a real housewife?!?
If Andy Cohen has any say in it, it’s an ‘Absolutely yes!’
The veteran show host announced Monday, November 1, the popular Bravo franchise would be expanding overseas for “The Real Housewives of Dubai.”
This marks the network’s 11th installment and first international franchise.

“Everything’s bigger in Dubai, and I couldn’t be more excited to launch Bravo’s first international ‘Housewives’ series in a city I’ve been fascinated by for years,” Cohen said in a statement.
He appeared on the “TODAY” show on Monday and said, “Get your passports, our 11th city! We are going to the billionaire’s playground. This is going to blow the lid off the entire franchise.”
While Bravo and Cohen are beyond excited about this new ‘Real Housewives’ installment, many were upset by the news.
Social media users criticized Bravo for overlooking the country’s human rights violations against women and the LGBTQ+ community, which is pretty ironic.

Now, there are rumblings that former Hollywood heavy hitter Lohan could be joining the cast.
While appearing on The Talk Wednesday, November 3, Cohen was asked if the “Mean Girls” actress would be a star of upcoming show.
“Let me tell you something. It’s a good idea Jerry,” Cohen told Jerry O’Connell.
While Lohan’s casting is still up in the air, the Bravo host promises fans of the franchise will love it.
“It’s a billionaire’s playground,” Cohen said. “They’re a group of friends. It’s great. We haven’t announced the cast yet. But we’re really excited about them.”
He continued, “You gotta watch what happens. I’m very excited though, because you say, it is like Vegas on steroids and the wealth there, I think, makes it something that people are going to be very curious about from the get-go.”
Dubai is Vegas on steroids
The network has yet to announce a release date, but it is expected to premiere in 2022.
So, what has Lohan been up to?
Well, she’s been living in Dubai, she’s set to appear in a Netflix holiday movie and will be releasing her very own podcast.
Earlier this year it was announced the actress would be launching her podcast with Red Arrow Studios’ Studio 71.
This will be Lohan’s first big project since her MTV show, “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club.”
Is Lindsay the next big Housewife?!
The reality TV show followed LiLo as she ran her Grecian beach club and managed a crew of young, party-going employees.
Lindsay’s ‘Beach Club’ only survived two seasons on the network, and her beach club shut down soon afterward.
Lindsay became a bit of a recluse from the public eye after her beach club failed.
This podcast will allow the “Mean Girls” star to “share her authentic voice,” giving listeners “a chance to experience a never-before-seen side” of the actress.
“I’m excited to partner with Studio71 in the development and production of my podcast,” said Lindsay, per Deadline. “I’m looking forward to connecting with more of my fans and having intimate conversations with friends and thought leaders across all industries.”
