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."

This is a "story" sold by Dina that's meant to prompt DWTS into giving Lindsay an offer.


She's not family-hour material and she doesn't show up for work. It's just a rumour meant to stir up some interest. Dina has promoted a hundred bogus offers in the last few years.

Morning all.

This is like the Kardashians planting stories to try to get a minimum $3 million for baby photos. Lindsay took $100 a day for the Canyons, she didn't turn down a $500,000 payday.

So reality t.v. is beneath her, but a glorified porn such as "The Canyons" is an A-List project for a comeback?!?!?
She is seriously cracked out of her mind!

Haven't s lot of high profile people in lots of different fields done this show? Not that I like Nancy Grace but I saw the changes her body went through, the joy on her face and the love and admiration she had for her partner. If you're not that good they keep the steps simple and the costumes are always tasteful and elegant. Seems like a win win situation. Kirsty Alley lost weight, so did Cuba. She is too lazy. Put Duina in her place.

That's too bad. If they're still looking for someone of that caliber I understand Casey Anthony is available.

I do want to thank TMZ for putting up the worst pictures possible of Bitcho-the one from over the weekend was priceless. If her hair line ever gets any bigger she won't have any hair to add those extensions too.

She is "flim actress." BULLSH*T. This would have been a VERY smart move on her part, to accept the offer on DTWS...she would have looked likable, humble, HEALTHY.

This is just further evidence of her downward spiral. The real reason she rejected this offer? In my opinion, it is because 1. She knows she couldn't do it 2. She would have to be relative sober for 3 days in a row 3. She would look like a fool on national tv.

Lindsay sounds like she has emphysema, or at the very least, chronic bronchitis. She is in very real danger of ruining her voice, developing esophageal cancer, or worse.

The dancing done on this show is very vigorous, and simply too aerobic for a chain smoker.

DI thought the show's name was dancing with the stars, not dancing with has-beens.
