Lindsay Lohan just turned down a "massive" offer to appear on "Dancing with the Stars" because she "doesn't want to do reality TV," according to TMZ.

"Dancing with the Stars" reportedly made Lohan several offers to appear on the show, says TMZ, some offers reaching as high as $550,000.
Lohan could use the money; in December, the IRS seized all of her bank accounts because she owed hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes, according to TMZ. As of last month, she reportedly owed the federal government $233,904.
Lohan said she wants to concentrate on doing films, but considering the disastrous flop of her latest film, the low budget noir thriller The Canyons, she may have a rough road ahead of her.
The Canyons was rejected from the Sundance Film Festival earlier this month, and "tmz.com is reporting that producers of the film are blaming Lohan for the film's rejection," according to The Guardian. Apparently, Festival officials thought "Lohan might be a 'turn-off' for the audience."
A recent New York Times Magazine behind-the-scenes report from the set of The Canyons revealed that Lohan often acted erratically and sometimes even violently during filming.
"After the Canyons fiasco, she's basically made herself unhireable," says TMZ.
Lohan's not the only celebrity to have rejected an offer from "Dancing with the Stars." Jamie Lee Curtis turned them down last spring, says NBC, and Ann Romney turned down a DWTS offer after "seriously considering competing," according to TMZ.
The show even approached former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Mark Zuckerberg, but (surprise!) was rejected by both.
"We've approached a lot of people over the years," DWTS executive producer Conrad Green told Pop Crunch in 2010. "People say no for a variety of reasons. Some people like the show but think they suck at dancing. It's a lot easier to say no than it is to say yes."
