I don't mean to sound harsh, but considering the past few years of Lindsay Lohan's life have been something of a ... struggle, both personally and professionally, maybe turning down a $550,000 gig on Dancing With the Stars wasn't the best decision to make right now. Oh, hadn't you heard? Yes, apparently DWTS was so keen on adding LiLo to next season's cast, they were willing to pay her over half a million dollars. This is Lindsay Lohan we're talking about here, just to clarify -- Lindsay Lohan, whose recent work includes indie film The Canyons (for which she was paid $100 per day) and a janitorial position at the Los Angeles morgue (for which she was paid the privilege of not being locked up in jail).
Of course, Lindsay Lohan, being a true thespian, says she'll never stoop to reality TV -- film is her passion. Hey, a girl's gotta have standards, right? But let's just entertain the possibility that LiLo doesn't end up getting hired for any big money movie roles anytime soon.
