Human train wreck Lindsay Lohan reportedly turned down a $550,000 offer from ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars." The reason? According to RadarOnline, the troubled starlet simply can’t commit to a schedule and can hardly be trusted to show up, so her team decided it’s best for her to skip live TV.
"Lindsay has been a mess on movie sets lately," a source told RadarOlnine. "She doesn’t show up on time, she keeps everyone waiting and so her team decided that there was no way that she could handle the pressure of a live show like ‘Dancing with the Stars.’”
The source went on to say, "Lindsay operates on her own schedule, and there would be no way that anyone could guarantee that she would be on time for rehearsals or the shows, and they’re live so it would be horrible if she didn’t show up!" Terrible, yes. Entertaining? Probably the reason ABC wanted the 26-year-old to begin with.
Had Lohan been able to manage some sort of schedule — two live shows a week and months of daily practices, in this case — the fat paycheck would’ve been ample help in covering her $234,000 debt to the IRS.
But that’s not the only reason LiLo should’ve sucked it up and said yes. Celebuzz listed the reasons why Lohan should have agreed to "DWTS" and they all make perfect sense. For one, the rigorous regimen would have sprung her into shape and gotten her on a healthier track. Also, Lindsay is practically uninsurable in the industry, but proving she’s changed on "DWTS" could help her turn it around.
Either way, we’ll soon get a decent dose of La LiLo when two of her movies come out: "The Canyons" (slated for later this year) and "Scary Movie 5" (to be unleashed onto the world in April).
