Dina Lohan Needs a Reality Check! She’s Blaming Everyone But Herself For Lindsay’s Problems!

Fri, August 13, 2010 1:34pm EDT by 6 Comments

Watching Dina Lohan on the Today show as she refused to take any responsibility for her daughter Lindsay’s messed-up life got me all fired up!

Halfway through watching Dina Lohan’s interview on the Today show this morning, I stifled an urge to throw a sofa cushion at the TV. I seriously don’t know how Matt Lauer kept his cool while listening to Lindsay Lohan’s mom’s deluded rant. Totally defensive and argumentative, Dina (who compared her daughter to America’s Sweetheart, Julia Roberts) blamed everyone else for the problems that have led to her 24-year-old child spending 14 days in jail and being sent to court-ordered drug and alcohol rehab.

“I’m not condoning drinking and driving, but she’s still paying the price for what she did in 2007,” moaned Dina, 47, referring to not one but two DUI charges.

The 47-year-old said that “Lindsay was 19 [then], she’s 24 now, she’s changed. She’s grown up considerably.” Uh, Dina, don’t know how to break this to you, but you have the math skills of a toddler. 2007 was three years ago, which means that Lindsay was 21, not 19.

And as for Dina claiming that Lindsay is more grown up than she was at 19 (or 21), let’s just consider this for a second — just three weeks ago, the 24-year-old walked into a court room with a manicure that gave the judge a middle finger F-U. Yeah, that’s a really mature, grown-up move, isn’t it?

Am I being too harsh? I don’t think so. Dina is the loving, caring mother who partied alongside her daughter in LA until 2 a.m. the night before she was due in court to give a deposition related to her DUI case (in May this year).

Responding to Matt’s question about her reputation as a party mom, Dina said: “As a parent you have to let them go a little bit. She went out to Los Angeles when she was 19 I had to let her go and live and fall and fail and survive. Without failure there’s no success. I was there in close proximity. You can’t make your child not go out and go to a club and not get behind the wheel of a car.”

You can make your child not go out and go to a club and not get behind the wheel of a car, Dina. It’s called being a responsible parent. Maybe you should try it sometime.

But the thing that really set me twitching and wanting to reach for the remote control this morning was when Matt asked about her daughter’s continuing problems, and Dina responded, “That’s all propaganda.”

So it was propaganda and not real when Lindsay was repeatedly photographed passed out in a car after a heavy night of partying?

She’s clearly deluded. When Matt said that Lindsay had been in rehab four times, Dina responded that it was only “two times; I don’t know where you get that.” Um, let’s do another little math lesson, shall we?

Lindsay was in the Wonderland Center in LA in January 2007 for a 30-day stay.

Then, four months later she checked into Promises in Malibu for a 45-day stay.

In August of the same year, she headed to Cirque Lodge in Utah for another six-week program.

And then earlier this month, she walked out of jail and headed to her court-ordered 90-day stay.

Dina, dear, that makes four, not two stays in rehab!

“You’re reading things that are not based on fact,” the mom of four repeatedly told Matt Lauer, but let’s face reality here, Dina. Your daughter has been battling abuse problems for at least three years, if not longer, and you, your ex-husband, Michael, and all of those “friends” in Hollywood are to blame. You can snarl about the unfairness of it all and moan that the judge “went overboard and played serious hardball with Lindsay,” but thank goodness somebody did!

Oh, and Dina, next time you sit down for an interview, get your facts straight!

OMG! Could not have been stated better!
Dina is crazy and/or in denial and needs to wake up! Lindsay has major issues, many of which probably can be traced back to her fame whore parents, but she is now an adult and needs to finally take responsibility. That’s kinda had for her to do thorugh with her family telling anyone who will listen that “it’s not based in truth”! LOL! So all those pics of Lindsay passed out in cars, her multiple DUI’s and drug possesion charges were fabricated?
These people need to go away and people need to stop talking about them and putting them on TV then maybe they will go away and get their s#*t together!

Now Dina is boo hooing that Matt was too tough on her. Dina is a disgrace, period. She sure LOVES the “victim” poor me role. This is why your daughter can’t accept consequences or responsibility, because she was raised with a mother who loves to play the “blame game”. Dina is not well spoken. Some words she used were not in the correct context. What was even more despicable was when she was trying to plug her son’s new acting career and the “book” she’s going to write. Oh, yes, and Lindsay’s sit down interview after rehab. This woman is OBSESSED with fame. She lives through her daughter because she never was successful. I can’t expressed how sickened I was over this interview. I wish Matt would have held her MORE accountable. FYI Dina, you might want to consult with a PR agency before doing another interview because you are making yourself look even worse than you did before.

that woman needs serious help, the whole family does. Both those ‘parents’ should be ridiculed by all. What kind a of person uses their child as a meal ticket?
Dumb ass ppl like this should be required to have a licence to have children. They messed up their biggest responsibility, turn out responsible, mature, respectful children. instead they excelled in doing the opposite. well done! The only salvation is that once one of her kids dies, maybe the rest will wake up and see what horrible parents that had and cut the white trash off. Just seeing one of them makes my skin crawl.

Dina Lohan has made all the right mistakes. She’s a friend before she’s a mother. She projects her desires onto her kids and she’s a fine role model for her kids. Being famous, rich and friends with her kids is exactly what caused Lindsays problems. So its no surprise that its not her fault at all!
