Lindsay Lohan has turned down an offer to appear on Dancing With the Stars, her mom Dina tells exclusively.

"We are huge fans of the show and think it's incredible," Dina said.

"We'll watch it, but it is not going to happen.

"Lindsay actually told the woman at Dancing With The Stars who made the offer that 'you need to take my mom!'"

As RadarOnline was first to report, producers for the hit reality television show recently tried to land Lindsay for the show.

While Dina confirmed Lindsay gave the offer serious consideration, the Mean Girls star, 24, has decided to keep her focus on her drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

"Lindsay is a great dancer, but she's taking a break right now. She has been through a lot," Dina told

"Our family loves the show because I'm a dancer, and I taught dance when Lindsay was growing up.

"I dragged her from one dance studio to another, and she sat in front of the mirrors and watched, while I taught."

Celebrity Rehab

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elden Fox ordered the recovering actress to remain in treatment at Betty Ford until January 3 after a series of probation violations, including a positive test for cocaine.

The time at Betty Ford has made an impression on Dina, who praised her daughter's efforts.

"She just needs to come out (from Betty Ford) healthy and happy and will," Dina told

"After she has some time off, she has so many projects she is considering... and her true love is film."
