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."

There's no way she could stay sober day-in and day-out long enough to compete. Continually being drunk or high is not compatible with something like DWTS.

I've watched every season of DWTS so far, but I would never EVER watch a season with Trainwreck Trash. The world has given her far more then her fair share of chances, and she blows every single one. She needs to go away forever. I wouldn't so much as flip through the channel if she were on, I don't want to see her nasty, drugged out, soulless face.

You gotta give Lindsay credit. It's amazing how she manages to be a snob and an addict and criminal at the same time.

Are they crazy? Can you imagine the kind of chaos she would cause? She wouldn't show up 90% of the time and if she did, she'd be hung over or stoned.

My take on this is that she doesnt want to do anything that might require effort and discipline and just hard work. Firecrotch turns down a sweetheart deal to only have six months in a rehab whivh is where she should be anyway.But dumbo turns it down and why? Because it means that she would have to stop drinking and actually get her life together, which she is obviously not ready to do. As far as the DWTS rejection, it seem pretty simple. She would have to put in lots of effort and stop boozing which she is not ready to do yet. I hope she's ready to get herself cleaned up pretty soon cause shes more than likely going to get some time behind bars, and I dont mean her standard few hours...more like months. Either way, shes going to get sober, unless she starts buying jailhouse wine inside the can, Good luck Lindsay....youre gonna need it

Her party buddy Lady Gaga's song. "Just Dance" is stuck in my head now. She's only 26 and too out of shape to do 1 DWTS show much less a season. She'd voted off the first round if she did. I can just see her all sweaty and "breaving thru her mouff."

There's NO WAY this disgusting cooze would be under that scrutiny when she can get reamed by a Turbanator a few times for the same coin!!!
Plus, if she could responsibly pay her bills, she'd get less "sympathy" (in her twisted mind).
DWTS really had some ballz to even go near her.
AND you know other celebs are pizzed that they got So.Much.Less. than they offered this jizz-bucket.
LOLs and Ugh, all at the same time! lol
(I do love, however, that this pig thinks reality tv is "beneath" her! LOLs for days!!! She'll NEVAH get an offer like this again.)
Dumb.B!t@h.

She is provoking the judges and the government to take strong action. If the average American would do one-tenth of the things this bimbo has done they would be in the pokey. She couldn't stand the physical demands of Dancing with the Stars. She would be either drinking or popping pills. The entire Lohan clan are losers.

It's actually a wise move for Lindsay. We all know she wouldn't make it a week through training- because its actual work. I don't think you can dance all day after a night of booze and coke. She's just preventing another breech of contract lawsuits. It's not reality tv she's avoiding because she did that bravo show.
