Lindsay Lohan rejected a lucrative offer to appear on "Dancing with the Stars" because she allegedly does not want to appear on reality television.

The ABC show reportedly made offers to Lohan that maxed out at $550,000 for the upcoming season, according to TMZ.

The gossip website cited sources close to the 26-year-old troubled actress who claimed she wants nothing to do with any reality show. There were no other details of Lohan's involvement with ABC as a representative for "Dancing with the Stars" told TMZ, "We don't comment on casting."

This is not the only time that Lohan was approached to appear on reality TV.

She previously dismissed the idea of appearing on a reality show after she was linked to the United Kingdom series "Celebrity Big Brother," and claimed that she was too "busy" with her acting career to consider the proposal, according to Yahoo News.

Lohan will soon appear in "Scary Movie 5," which she almost denied because she thought it might tarnish her comeback image as a serious actress - an image she tried to portray when she played the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime drama "Liz & Dick."

It was perhaps a good thing that she decided to take the role - she got close with co-star Charlie Sheen and he provided her with some much needed financial support. The 47-year-old "Anger Management" actor gave Lohan $100,000 to help reduce some of her massive tax debt to the Internal Revenue Service.

Her acting career has not stopped her from earning money in other ways.

Lohan reportedly earned at least $100,000 recently for a personal appearance at a New Year's Eve party in London for Brunei's Haji Abdul Azim, who is third in line to the throne of the small Southeast Asian nation, according to MSN
