Watch out, world. Today at 9 a.m. ET, one Michael Lohan reentered society.
Was it only two years ago that Lohan began his stretch at New York's Collins Correctional Center after convictions for, among other things, drunk driving and attempted assault on his brother-in-law with -- and this is truly inspired -- a shoe? Those two years proved to be crucial in the life of Michael's daughter, Lindsay, as she's attempted to make the transition from Disney darling to serious actress with more than a few detours into tabloid territory along the way.
As it turns out, though, Lindsay isn't the only Lohan with a flair for the dramatic. Or, overdramatic. It seems we can expect great things from Michael -- if you consider a reality TV show based on his post-prison exploits and a self-help book "great things." It seems Lohan senior will pick up right where he left off before entering the slammer by continuing to film a pilot tentatively titled "Hollywood Dad."
Show producer Brett Hudson says Michael, a "changed man" who was ordained as a minister while behind bars, is a creative guy with a lot to offer -- including a pitch for another reality show in which he and Lindsay would be put on a desert island along with Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and their dads. Oh, and this:
"And he's got other ideas, like going out on Sunset Boulevard and giving a prostitute a hundred dollar bill -- not for sex, but for her time so he can talk to her and try to save her. He wants to make things right with the world. And especially with his family."
Daughter Lindsay is reportedly open to a reconciliation with pops, despite the negative publicity surrounding some freaky public missives and reports that he bragged to other inmates about being intimate with Lindsay's "Herbie: Fully Loaded" stunt double.
We'll be watching.
