Is Lilo about to kick on her dancing shoes?! The once-troubled starlet may be heading toward the mirror ball trophy for ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Season 19!
The Dancing With The Stars cast will officially be revealed on September 4, but as the celeb contestants are shaking up, HollywoodLife.com has learned that the show is pushing to get Lindsay Lohan on the dance floor! The best part? One of her Mean Girls costars is already confirmed!
‘Dancing With The Stars’ Wants Lindsay Lohan On Season 19
HollywoodLife.com has been giving you Dancing With The Stars scoop all week long, and here’s the best one to date…even though it’s not set in stone.
Lindsay Lohan is at the top of the show’s wish list. Although she is in talks to join Season 19, it’s not looking all too promising.
“They are still scrambling before the weekend to sign a big name that they are in negotiations with,” a DWTS insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “If it goes through, the name rhymes with ‘Zohan.'”
For you slow pokes out there, that’s “Lohan!” (And no, they’re not referring to Michael.)
Unfortunately, we’ve learned that the chances are “less than 10%,” at this point, but the show is still trying.
Our insider added, “They want a Mean Girls reunion on DWTS.”
‘Mean Girls’ Reunion On ‘DWTS’?
If you’re wondering where this Mean Girls reunion is coming from, no it’s not Regina George — it’s her ex-Aaron Samuels! Actor Jonathan Bennett, 33, has signed on to the upcoming season, HollywoodLife.com exclusively reported.
Cady Heron and Aaron Samuels getting another shot at a prom dance? We would die.
Other confirmed contestants, we previously reported, include fashion designer Betsey Johnson, 72; actress, Lea Thompson, 53; Duck Dynasty‘s Sadie Robertson, 18; YouTube personality Bethany Mota, 18; Olympic athlete, Lolo Jones, 32; General Hospital hunk, Anthony Sabato Jr, 42; and Pretty Little Liars star Janel Parrish, 25.
UPDATE: HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively on Aug. 30, 2014, ABC could not make a deal with Lindsay for the upcoming Season 19. Our insider tells us, “They definitely left the door wide open to pursue negotiations for a future season. The people at DWTS really are confident that they will get her in the next two cycles.”
Dancing With The Stars Season 19 premieres on September 15 (8/9c).
