"Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club" is a reality show where the star takes a dark episode from her past and turns it into a business venture.
For over a decade now, Lindsay Lohan has been depicted by the media as a teen star who went off the rails and turned into a sad, washed-up has-been. However, she refuses to be a media victim anymore, and she’s working hard to undo the damage of the last few years, to get back in control of her career, and to show everyone that she still has a lot to offer.
That is where Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club comes in. The new reality show, which recently premiered on MTV, follows the actress on her journey to become the ultimate girl boss. “People have always given me trouble for going to clubs so, why don’t I just open my own?” says the 32-year-old New Yorker on the trailer of her reality show. To work for Lohan, you have to be the best of the best because she is set on building her very own empire on the Greek island of Mykonos.
In this reality show, Lindsay intends to turn one of the beaches in Mykonos into the hottest place on Earth. Though the Greek beach has always been synonymous with nightlife and fun, for Lindsay, it’s also a reminder of a dark episode in her life.
Back in 2016, Lindsay Lohan was caught fighting with her then fiancé, Egor Tarabasov. The fight turned into an assault when Tarabasov got out of the car, a cellphone was thrown out the car, and he grabbed Lohan by the shoulders while they struggled violently over the phone. Lohan recalls this and other incidents in an interview for Variety:
“I was hit and abused physically on a beach in front of people, twice. And then at my house, and thank God a kid saw me and called the police. It’s a shame that people had to see that, but it’s not something that I feel is necessary to talk about. It’s something that happened to me, and I had to figure out how to handle it on my own. My eff-you was buying the beach”.
A way of turning the page and growing from the darkest moments of her life, Lohan's new show is also a symbol of renewal and empowerment. Casting a bunch of American "VIP hosts," Lindsay shows her toughest side as a businesswoman. Along with her business partner Panos Spentzos, they don't give the employees challenges or hold eliminations (though anyone can get fired at any time without notice). There's only one simple task: make big bucks for Lohan, whatever it takes.
Lohan takes her role as mentor and boss very seriously, giving advice to her young employees on the do's and don'ts of the club industry, advice that comes from experience.
After years of scrutiny, Lindsay Lohan refuses to be depicted as a victim and has decided to the grab the bull by the horns, learning from her past and making the best out of it. Yet, we should think for a moment about our duty as spectators, since we’re the key element that makes Hollywood’s machinery work: why are we really here watching Lindsay? Are we really excited to see her making it big as an entrepreneur, or are we just waiting for her to make a mistake so we can keep judging her? After all, if that were the case, we wouldn't be that different from those people who recorded and harassed her for likes on social media and tabloid revenue.
