Editors at the Daily Mail claim the troubled actress has met with producers with a view to follow in the footsteps of American Pie star Tara Reid, who appeared on the show this year (11).
But Lohan's ongoing legal woes might prevent her from leaving the country to film the show, which has a scheduled January, 2012, start date - she's currently serving community service in Los Angeles for a 2011 probation violation.
A Celebrity Big Brother source tells the Mail, "We hope that the courts will make a special allowance in this case. There aren’t many more controlled environments than the Big Brother house."
At the beginning of last month (Nov11), Los Angeles County judge Stephanie Sautner ruled that Lohan would be sentenced to jail time if she didn't complete 12 days of community service at the L.A. county morgue and attend four psychotherapy sessions before 14 December (11).
If Lohan complies, she will be required to spend an additional 12 days at the morgue and attend four more psychotherapy sessions by 17 January (12).
As part of the terms of the service, the actress is not allowed to leave the state of California without her probation officer's approval.
