Mischa Barton is going to be on the upcoming season of ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and she has another starlet to thank – Lindsay Lohan! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Mischa got the gig because Lindsay said no. Here’s the scoop!
Woah! We’re so excited to see Mischa Barton, 30, on season 22 of Dancing With The Stars, but it almost didn’t happen! A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Mischa only snagged the spot because Lindsay Lohan, 29, declined! We have all the details, here.
On Mar. 2 we learned that Mischa was going to make her big comeback on season 22 of Dancing With The Stars, and we couldn’t be more excited to see our favorite O.C. star again! But she got very lucky to be cast, since another major early-2k star was producers’ first choice! “Mischa Barton was a second choice when Lindsay Lohan again refused offers from DWTS,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
While we would kill to watch Lindsay dance, she has a pretty good reason to refuse. “Producers again came after Lindsey hoping she would work for a discounted rate,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “The show routinely comes after Lindsey with offers and she always turns them down. She does not want to do more reality TV.”
“DWTS offered her half a million years ago and thought they could pick her up for cheap this time around so they offered her much less,” the source explained EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “Lindsey was not desperate enough to take the job and so she said no. That left room for Mischa who was willing to work cheap for a chance to give her career the jump start it needs.” Sigh. Maybe one day we’ll get to see Lindsay. For now, we’re more than happy to watch Mischa.
