Lindsay Lohan leaving Cipriani restaurant in London (12/30)
Incredibly, Dancing with the Stars offered Lindsay Lohan half a million to be on the new season, and even more incredibly, she turned them down. Well when you’re a rising star like her, you have to pick and choose your opportunities very carefully. From TMZ:
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.
Of course Lindsay turned down Dancing with the Stars – they film twice a week. And the other five days are spent practicing. That’s seven times a week Lindsay would have to be on time for something. She hasn’t been on time for something seven times in her entire life. “Lindsay can’t be tied up by this show every day of the week and risk missing a call from Martin Scorsese,” Dina Lohan probably said.
