Despite getting fired parting ways with the Linda Lovelace biopic Inferno, Lindsay Lohan may have a new project on the horizon: Dancing With the Stars!
"Dancing with the Stars producers have actually had Lindsay Lohan on their wish list of cast members for a very long time,” a source told Radar Online.
That we can see. She'd be great for generating buzz if nothing else. But would they actually pull the trigger given that ... well, this is Lindsay Lohan?
DANCING QUEEN: Will Lindsay Lohan dance with the stars?
Though Lohan’s past has been a sticking point for the show, her current stay at the Betty Ford Center is producing positive results ... at least so far.
“The producers were concerned about her erratic behavior, but they are taking another look at asking her to come on next season,” the source added.
“She would be available because she isn't going to be filming Inferno," and not only that, “The girl can dance. Lindsay is actually wicked talented.”One added bonus of the high-profile gig? BANK. “It pays very well. Lindsay has very limited income now and this could help get her out of the red."
Cast members typically receive $125,000 to start, with incentives building on top of that as they advance further into the season. Not a bad offer.
Despite the allure of the hit reality show, the source stressed that Lindsay’s future will depend in large part on what is best for her ongoing sobriety.
That would probably be 1-3 years of relative seclusion and 24/7 supervision a la Britney Spears, but she lacks that kind of family support system.
We'll see if her handlers rush her back to work or not, but at least for the time being, it looks like the troubled star is making recovery her #1 job.
“Lindsay won't be making decisions about what she chooses for her next project without consulting first with her treatment team,” the source said.
“This wasn't mandated by the court, her advisors or medical team, but Lindsay has taken that step herself, which is a very, very positive sign."
Can Lindsay stay clean?
