Lindsay Lohan

Rejects Massive Offer From

'Dancing with the Stars'

1/22/2013 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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."

She doesn't deserve anything she's been given the past few years and that includes jail passes, charges dropped, a spot on glee and snl, model contracts, the home renovation, playboy spread and money etc etc etc

TMZ, I think you got this story all wrong.

It was actually DWTSM (Demented White Trash Single Moms) that offered DUina a part on their realty show.

Yup    

What a stupid little whore; making more bad decisions & completely living in a land of delusion. Not only can't she act, but she thinks she's so hot that she can abuse anyone around her without recourse; she'll never get a decent role again. Time to start being a porn movie set fluffer; she's already doing it with rich older men, but since she's a z list ex-actress now, none of them will want her any more...

DWTS wanted Lindsay on their show for a long time. One of the producers can't remember her name (Margaret Choi?) was interviewed and she said she wanted Lindsay, that was about 2 years ago.


I say good for Lindsay, if she doesn't want to do it, thats her choice and no amount of TMZ BS will make her do it.

Too bad Disney On Ice didn't offer Lindz a spot, cause everyone knows Lindsay sure knows a lot about skating

Come on! Again with this broad? She is starting to make courtney love look like a rational person. The biggest has been that ever lived seriously. She thinks that lil hissy fit gimmick is her golden ticket in acting that may have worked when you were a kid but its a new ballgame out there! You are done face it. The L A scene turned you out. Liz and dick it was so bad i cant even say that its one of those movies that you watch when your hungover on a sunday. Just a wasted project. Go hide and drink and drug!

Maybe Lindz could collaborate with Dr. Dre, cause she sure knows how to beat a rap.

Did anyone watch TMZ yesterday when Harvey Levin was caught out on his lies about Lindsay?

A few days ago TMZ ran a story about Lindsay was crazy for turning DOWN the 'rehab' deal. They ran the same story a couple of weeks before the court hearing on January 15th.

Yesterday on TMZlive, Harvey said Shawn was on her way to meet with the prosecutors on 14th but before she got there Shawn learned she had been fired and turned back, he said Shawn didn't know about the deal, it wasn't presented to her. Here's the point, if Shawn didn't know about the deal how could it have been turned down?


Liar liar TMZ.

ABC would never ask her to be involved. They do not, repeat do not need the headaches of one Lindsay Dee Lohan on the show when it does just fine without her. Not to mention, whoever she was paired up with would be getting a contact buzz everytime they practice and she sweats 5 o Clock Vokda. Remember too, Dina has always wanted to do it because she was a Rockette. This is total spin to deflect from her hooking overseas and the timing is very suspect too before court. I can see this know it all Dina selling this one saying to herself, "ha, this will show those 'haters' that Lindsay is still very much in demand, but is still dedicated to films." GTFO Dina.

Blowjangles....if this site is so inaccurate, why come here all the time and rip it, unless you were really close to the Lohans? It's a gossip site were people who are interested in the topic post their thoughts. So why come on and get your panties all up in a bunch and try to persuade the rest of the posters that TMZ is wrong and you are right. Nobody cares. Call up TMZ Live and give it to Harvey if you feel so strong. You can get on.

This story has DUIna's hoof marks all over it. What rubbish. Ain't no way a popular show like DWTS (popular why, I have no idea) would subject themselves to the circus she puts every employer through.

Of course, idiots like Blowjangles, who routinely dismisses any negative TMZ story about Lohan, embraces this one as the gospel truth.

What a complete idiot.

The haters amuse me lol They are so terrified people still want Lindsay on their show that they have to post here with their usual childish hate. Sorry haters, no matter what happens to Lindsay in the next few months, producers and directors will always want Lindsay in their movies or shows. GUARANTEED!
