It’s that time again! Now that Dancing with the Stars is over, it’s time for everyone to start speculating about who will join the cast of ABC’s hit reality show next season. And once again, Lindsay Lohan‘s name is at the top of everybody’s list–including the producers of the show.
According to an unnamed source who’s close to the situation (not “The Situation,” but–you know…), “Dancing with the Stars’ producers have had Lindsay on their wish list of castmates for a very long time,” they told RadarOnline.com on Tuesday. Apparently, the producers were unsure of the troubled star before, worried that her off-screen antics would tarnish the show’s family image.
“The producers were concerned about her erratic behavior, but they are taking another look at asking her to come on for the next season because she is doing so well at her sober living facility,” says the source. “The producers are aware that she would be available because she isn’t going to be filming ‘Inferno.’”
The source also tells RadarOnline that Lohan’s next career move will be based on what’s best for her sobriety. “Lindsay won’t be making any decisions about what she chooses for her next project without consulting first with her treatment team. 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.”
And the good press that comes with being on the hit reality show wouldn’t be the only draw for Lindsay to join the cast; she’s also interested in the money. “It pays very well,” says the source. “Lindsay has very limited income coming in and this could help get her out of the red.”
A rep for Dancing with the Stars was contacted, but said that they do not comment on casting.
