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.”
Well, my day’s already ruined.
Besides this decision being dumb on Lindsay‘s part – when you’re as broke as she is, doing some ballroom dancing on national television certainly isn’t the worst gig you could get – it’s also kind of dumb on Dancing with the Stars‘ part. Sure, they would get tons of new viewers (me, for instance), but would it be worth it? Would all her meth misadventures, coupled with the very real possibility that she could go to jail real soon, be worth the extra viewers? I guess it depends on what you think is better, money or sanity.
