Katie HolmesKatie Holmes is in talks to launch her own reality show.

The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark star has reportedly been plotting to reinvent herself as America's next domestic goddess in the vein of fellow actress Gwyneth Paltrow and is considering showing her life on the small screen.

"Katie admires how Gwyneth Paltrow has carved out a foodie career. She's hoping this might be a great new direction for her. A number of prominent cable networks are interested in the show, which will see Katie learning to make different dishes, as well as concentrating on catering for children," a source said.

The report comes after Katie, 35, posted pictures of herself with her designer pal Zac Posen learning how to make fresh pasta at Mario Batali's New York cookery school, Eataly. It is thought Katie was getting advice from the top chef about her new show, especially since she only started to experiment in the kitchen two years ago.

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan allegedly refused to film the final scenes for a home improvement series despite receiving $200,000 worth of renovations for free.

The Liz & Dick actress - who is currently trying to pay back a huge tax bill - reportedly refused to film a big reveal moment after her home was given an expensive revamp as part of the Bravo series Million Dollar Decorators.

Sources told gossip website TMZ.com that the 26-year-old troubled starlet agreed to take part in the series earlier this year in exchange for her rental home - which costs her $8,000 a month - getting a free makeover worth an estimated $200,000. The actress was said to have initially cooperated with producers and filmed a furniture-shopping segment in March, along with other footage at the house. But once the renovations were completed, Lindsay allegedly stopped communicating with the show's team. Insiders say that the actress is still living in the house but it is now too messy to be filmed and producers are said to be planning to use other clips to cobble together a big reveal moment since Lindsay won't take part. The episode is scheduled to hit screens early next year.
