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."

I don't believe Lindsay actually received such an offer from DWTS. That show takes dedication and hard work. Two capabilities that Lindsay has shown that she does not possess. You don't take a smooth running, top rated show and throw a Lohan in to the mix.

At this point, she wouldn't even get a MASSIVE offer from Vivid never mind DWTS.

I guess doing crappy movies and getting little pay and being a living reality show and getting no pay is better, right? Oh, and then there's that escorting service that she's now doing is soooooo much better!!!!

I cannot believe Lohan saying no to $550,000 for a gig. She has a tax lien. If I had an opportunity for a job, I would do it in a heart beat. This dizzy b'ch cannot be choosy. Producers of Films will definitely not her for any movies after crap Liz & Dick and Canyons passed over by Sundance Film Festival. She used to be bankable when Lohan was young. I think Lohan needs to her head out of her ass, if she wants to continue to improve her movie career just like Robert Downey Jr. did when he was in deep trouble. Robert bust his ass in recovery and made himself bankable to producers again.

Why would Lindsay want to make money working hard dancing on her feet when she can lay for pay on her back?

I would say she wouldn't do it because it cuts into her night life partying. If she had to rehearse that much she wouldn't be able to stay F**cked up all the time

Ha! She wasn't offered this... being unreliable is a huge problem with her..other celebrities would back out or turn down the offer if she was involved. But there's also no way that skank could even DO any dancing! Drunk..high...trashed lungs...lmao'!' Betty white could out perform that mess! Not to mention NO ONE would insure her or the show!! Shed drop dead if she DID try!

OK, this girl is good at not one thing. Fvcking for $$$$ is about the only thing that comes to mind and I'm not certain she's even good at that either. But it's sure easier for her to suck kock than do DWTS.

No way do I believe they made an offer to this nitwit.

Once she found out that none of the guys could lend her 100K, after all that "bonding" she'd probably just not bother to show up.

I think there are three reasons why Lindsey turned down the offer. (1) She truly feels she is too good for television, especially reality TV, and (2) She is afraid she would be voted off in the first couple of weeks, and (3) She knows she could not remain clean and sober for the several weeks or months.

We already know about her Tater thighs (see my avi) and her Tater teeth and Tater tits. Now we know she's got a Tater brain. So booze soaked, she is afraid to show herself in the glaring light of reality.

Vodka is made from Taters....TATERBRAIN
