Lindsay Lohan

Rejects Massive Offer From

'Dancing with the Stars'

EXCLUSIVE

0121_lindsay_dwts_01
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."

Lindsay very bad move after April you will owe almost a million dollars for back taxes and 2012, and that does not include what you will owe the state of California for 2012. You should have taken the deal, but then again you might be locked up when the season starts.

She needs to take anything that comes her way at this point. She should hug the producers of DWTS and take their money. I guess she is to stupid and to arrogant to get that. Oh well.

Sources = Dina. DWTS would never offer her a job, period. This takes weeks of dedicated, hard work with no fvcking around. She could never handle this rigerous schedule either. It would be the same ole unreliable Lohan. This is just another positive spin story being tossed out there to deflect from this court hearing. And $550 is nothing to her when she can get if for free hooking for men in the mid east. I'd love to see her try. She'd fail this so bad. Are they even aware of the work involved? Well Dina was a Rockette so she could give advice and motivate her, then collect any winnings to go towards the mortgage. And she is NOT too good for reality television. As far as reality TV goes, this is one show TO be on. At least it gets exposure and ratings. Her image is so shot now though that regular viewers would be sick and not watch. Worse than Bristol Pallin bing on the show. And can Lohan even dance? You cannot have major, major substance abuse problems and go on this show. It'd be a miserable fail. She was never offered this, I guarantee you that.

Unless DWTS is "jumping the shark", or, in this case the "escort", this story has the coke fried brain of DUina written all over it.

O lord, could you even imagine? Late every day, blowing rehearsals off, blaming her partner for everything. It would probably have ended with a lawsuit, the producers probably dodged a HUGE bullet by this piece of trash turning them down.
No one wants to see this lying psychopath do anything. She looks like she hasn't even bathed in months.

Guess it's easier getting paychecks to "date" wealthy middle-eastern men. Gross. Hope they have antibiotics.

Why do people offer her so much money?? She isn't even a pleasant train wreck. Her personality is abrasive!

Well we all know when Lindsay says something, she really doesn't always means it - like firing her attorney Shawn Holley. Eventually when she realizes she has no acting job offers, she'll have to decide to do reality TV, DWTS or join Octomom in porn. Then of course there's always McDonalds.

To be on this, she would immediately have to start an exercise routine and start the withdraws from booze and pills. She cannot go out every night and be late and hungover to rehersal every week. She wouldn't make it a week. And she know is it. But this is a Dina story to deflect as I said earlier. But lol, yeah if it was true she's in the position of turing down a lick of work.
