Lindsay Lohan Turns Down An Offer To Appear On ‘Dancing With The Stars’


So, Lindsay Lohan may be struggling with some financial difficulties these days but that doesn’t mean that she’s entirely desperate for money … yet. Word has it that Dancing with the Stars offered Lindsay a sizeable sum to appear and compete on the upcoming new season of their show and Lindsay decided NOT to take them up on their offer. While I find it very difficult to believe that Lindsay has better offers coming in, I have to say, I’m a bit surprised that she decided to say no to DWTS. Either the girl still has some pride left OR she’s finally reached a point where she’s making intelligent decisions … I mean, right?

Lindsay Lohan’s ego might be her downfall — because TMZ has learned, she just shut down a lucrative offer to do “Dancing with the Stars” … because she doesn’t want to do reality TV. Sources close to Lindsay tell us, the actress was made several offers to join the DWTS cast this upcoming season — offers that maxed out at $550,000. But Lindsay — who still owes hundreds of thousands in back taxes — shut them down, telling friends she’d never consider doing reality TV … she wants to stick to films. But there’s one problem — after “The Canyons” fiasco, she’s basically made herself unhireable. And as the saying goes, beggars can’t be choosers. A rep for DWTS tells us, “We don’t comment on casting.”

Honestly, I fervently believe that Lindsay will reach a point where she won’t be turning down any offers for money but I guess she’s just not at that place just yet. As much as I dislike the low level of celebrity on display on DWTS, I would 100% tune in to watch Lindsay try and compete for reality TV fame. Ah well … I guess we’ll just have to wait … until they make the same offer (for less money) next year :)

    Thank God for small miracles! I don’t wanna turn on my TV to see this numbnut anymore. Go away already!!!

    DWTS has been good for troubled starlets.. I think being on a routine helps get their lives back on track so it wouldn’t be the worst decision

  • Krissy

    I think she is waaaaay too lazy to be on that show. Can anyone see her showing up to rehearse? For hours? Sober???

    I think that was the best offer that she will be getting in the near future, so she is a fool for turning it down. Ultimately, I agree with cowgirl up above. I am really happy I won’t have to see her on tv regarding this show! Whew, dodged a bullet.

    There’s way too much hard work involved in that show. Lindsey would crash and burn publicly and she knows it, that’s why she wouldn’t do it.

  • Megan

    I think she would end up suffering from a lot of ‘exhaustion and dehydration’ if she did this show.

    I agree with Krissy, Megan and Megan. I think she shut it down because she couldn’t handle the work, commitment and criticism. I actually think this would be a good move for her – she can get disciplined, healthy and on track. They probably have a drug or alcohol policy (as in, none allowed) and she said oh heck no.
    … And as for not wanting to participate in reality TV … Lifetime is better?!?!

      PS – Trent, LOVE your picture! I laughed so hard.

    I just remembered that Chris Hemsworth starred in the Australian version of Dancing on Ice. He’s now one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, maybe she shouldn’t knock it!
