Shocking absolutely no one, Lindsay Lohan has made another horrible career choice.
TMZ reported this morning that La Lohan has made the decision to turn down an offer to appear on next season of ‘Dancing With the Stars’ solely because she doesn’t want to do reality TV. (She WILL take $250K worth of furniture from the Bravo network’s Million Dollar Decorators, though.) “That doesn’t COUNT, you guys!!”
That’s good, Linds. Everything else is in shambles, but above all else, gotta keep those standards intact.
The actress reportedly turned down multiple offers to be a contestant; making up to $550k, which is up to five times what most DWTS contestants make. And definitely a good place to start paying off all that debt, no?
It’s no secret that appearing on Dancing with the Stars has launched comebacks for countless C-list “celebrities” that society has practically forgotten before they reappeared on prime time television screens, decked out in ridiculous sparkling outfits, collectively impressing us with ballroom dancing skills that nobody ever knew they had. Or, in some cases, that they absolutely do not have. Which, let’s be real… is even better.
In offering up such a payout just to get Lilo to sign on, DWTS producers seem blithely aware of the ratings spike they would achieve from the amount of viewers that would tune in solely to see Lohan on live television, waiting for her to prove all her naysayers right and fall on her face in a drunken haze.
Chances are, Lindsay is quite aware, as well. The actress recently told friends that she would never consider reality television, and that she wants to stick solely to films.
Okay girl, let us know how that works out for you.
