Lindsay Lohan kissed her career goodbye a long time ago. But it wasn’t until recently that she probably realized how much of a slump she is actually in.
Despite the reports that Lindsay made the decision herself to pull out of Inferno, we all know that’s not true. The studio heads finally just grew a pair and canned her, which is what they should have done the first time she was sent to jail.
Lindsay’s IMDb.com credits have become nothing more than archives, and she’s got to do something about—and quick. My vote is Dancing With the Stars.
Yesterday a report cmae out claiming the DWTS producers are hell bent on landing Linds for next sreason.
“Dancing with the Stars producers have had Lindsay on their wish list of castmates for a very long time,” says a show source.
Apparently the whole sober living thing is working to Lindsay’s advantage, plus the fact that her schedule has recently opened up because she’s no longer shooting Inferno.
“The producers were concerned about her erratic behavior, but they are taking another look at asking her to come on for the next season because she is doing so well at her sober living facility,” the source adds. “The producers are aware that she would be available because she isn't going to be filming Inferno."
A insider with information about DWTS contracts tells Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that each contestant gets a $250,000 signing bonus, plus $10,000 for every week they’re on the show.
“It would be crazy for Lindsay to pass this up,” a Hollywood agent tells us. “Lindsay needs to be on a show like this to build up her fan base before making any more movies.”
Based on what the show did—and continues to do for Bristol Palin—I couldn’t agree more. Palin made $350,000 off DWTS, and is now shopping around several different offers—most of which are seven figure deals.
If you would have told me two years ago that a Vice Presidential candidate’s daughter who got knocked up by her high school sweetheart would be making more money than Lindsay Lohan, I would have heehawed in your face!
So is Linds a perfect fit for the show? If you look at the previous casts, it seems Dancing has been the perfect stepping stone for bigger and better things. In addition, a source claims Lilo can certainly cut a rug. “The girl can dance. Lindsay is wicked talented.”
So she’s got that goin’ for her! I think the odds are all for Lohan joining next season’s cast. If America text and phoned in their votes for Bristol week after week, I can’t imagine how many people will be rooting Lilo on.
DWTS has become the comeback show for stars with mediocre careers—I just hope Lindsay jumps at this chance, or else she may miss the boat altogether.
