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."

Such a shame, she could have done an "Ode to Liz and Dick" dance....one that involves hurling her empty liquor bottles at people.

I don't think she is good enough condition to dance on the show. Smoking all day long and never exercising. ........

With all her legal problems, court dates and possible jail time, it would not be in the best interest of anyone to offer her a job that takes any amount of time. I don't believe DWTS offered her anything and if they did, just like others, it is because she will bring publicity because of her antics. Any show that stoops to that should just give up and go off the air. I think the same thing about IDOL when they have now made it all about the judges and not about the contestants (X Factor also).

She wouldn't even show up for filming in HER OWN HOME, why would they think she'd show up for DWTS?

DEAR CRACKIE I gave you some "sound" free advice last week-because it was be nice to a STUPID CRACKIE day-to plead "no contest" on your 3 misdemeanors, just suck it up during your 1-2 week "brief" jail stay and then move on free and clear of this whole mess. Clearly, you didn't get the memo. LOL. So, I'mma goin' give it to you again. So listen up. YOU and your POS "parents"( for lack of a better word) have been "selling" LINDSAY DEE LOHAN in piecemeal portions to every/any social media outlet for years. And while they thank you with cash gifts that are untraceable by the IRS, SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS are the REAL JACKPOT WINNERS. They are making millions off of YOUR STORY, while they pay you in pennies. While you might think that TMZ and other social media outlets keep YOUR STORY alive so YOUR ADORING PUBLIC won't forget you, you are wrong. YOU and only you have kept YOUR STORY alive with your constant 24/7 fuc*kery. So why let Harvey,ROL,US Magazine etc... get rich off of YOUR STORY??? Tell it yourself with your OWN reality show. You don't have to humiliate yourself by fraudulently marrying some b-baller for the sake of better ratings. You just have to be Lindsay Dee lohan. It would sell. You would make millions. Quit lining the pockets of others that tell YOUR STORY. Tell it YOURSELF. I hear Oprah Winfrey needs quality "shows" on her Network. It would be PURE CINEMATIC GOLD.!!!

Lindsay will do a ultra low budget cheesy soft porn opposite a porno star who has done two thousand porno and have a foursome sex scene with other porno stars for $100 a day but she would do DWTS.....

Wouldn't that money more than cover her tax bills and pay her rent in a modest home for a few years? It sounds like a good answer to me. It is a gig that requires sobriety and discipline besides. Maybe if she agreed to commit to that, they would consider some kind of outpatient rehab and maybe community service.


I think reality TV helped Britney gain fcous and more control of her life. It is like a stepping stone where it is all part of the show if you fail. You don't have to be perfect, just yourself.


I think she needs to show people that she is willing to get serious about her life and do what it takes to maintain an acceptable lifestyle. If she just downsized her homes and got rid of possessions and showed she was willing to be committed instead of frivolous, they might take her more seriously.


I don't think the truck driver lied when he said Lindsay was driving. She is the only one who suffered car damage though. People lie to the cops all the time, just like they lie to suspects. I don't think it is that huge a deal.


I think it is the same concept as pleading the fifth or innocent until proven guilty. You are not required to admit guilt even if you know you are wrong.

Curious    

She turned down DWTS..but.."sources close to Lindsay" tells TMZ that she has joined the cast of the NBC hit show "The Biggest Loser". "Lindsay's friends" also tell TMZ that she is having scheduling problems because Lindsay has been hitting the "Red Carpet" (literally) in Hotels rooms with her clients. Mommy needs her 20%.

Good riddance!    

More MASSIVE BULLCRAP spread by Team Crackie in yet another hilarious attempt to make people not pay attention to the usual impending jail/locked rehab schedule, her ho business, the continuous lawsuits, the lies, her self caused humiliation, and all the other usual crimes against society and decency Crackie perpetrates on a daily basis.

Like Crackie could last 2 minutes before the charcoal briquettes the hag calls lungs seize up from any exertion beyond staggering from bar to bar and john to john. They actually require people to work hard and be on an actual schedule. Plus, the exertion might lead to a momentary close call to near sobriety and there's no way Crackie is going to let that happen!

Effing LIARS! The whole rotten grifter lot of them!

I don't think they would accept her unless they can be assured that she isn't going into a facility in the near future. This show takes weeks of training I believe so that at the end you see an improvement in their technique. I don't think this girl is healthy enough to put herself through all the trials. She isn't capable of growth or development.
