Dina Lohan was inexplicably invited on The Today Show again, only this time around she actually admitted her daughter Lindsay is a drug addict instead of trying to paint her as some sort of ginger Jesus:
“Yes,” she is comfortable admitting Lindsay is an addict, Dina told Lauer. And the reason she’d been unwilling to admit as much before was because Lindsay had to admit it first. “As a mother it wasn’t for me to come and tell the world about her problem … I wasn’t in denial. It was for her to come to her evolution. As a mother we protect. Now I’m happy and relieved myself.”
Did I say admit? I meant, continue to lie out of her face about how full of shit she is. But mommy wasn’t the only one getting her mug back in the press. Michael Lohan somehow managed to visit Lindsay yesterday in rehab because that worked out so well the last time and didn’t at all result in frequent, almost weekly relapses. RadarOnline reports:
“Lindsay met Michael at Betty Ford and the pair spent hours together… it was not a fleeting encounter, this appeared well-planned in advance,” the source said.
“They also went shopping at a local Palm Desert mall, where they were seen walking around together and at one point, were in a jewelry store.”
When RadarOnline.com contacted the Lohan patriarch for comment about the encounter, the 50-year-old dad-of-four remained tight-lipped: “I have pledged not to comment about anything relating to my daughter.
“However, what I will say is that I am an incredibly proud father tonight. My daughter is progressing extraordinarily well.”
Wow. When Dina and Michael Lohan form a united front to convince the world Lindsay’s getting the help she needs, you know something went horribly wrong. I’m not saying someone found Lindsay’s dead body OD’d in a janitor’s closet, but I’m also not saying these two haven’t already bought puppet string and a pair of dark sunglasses for a family interview with Diane Sawyer.
DIANE: Lindsay, how does it feel to see your parents together again?
LINDSAY: *head falls off*
DINA: Haha! Oh, Lindsay. She always was the comedian in the family. I mean, is. Is the comedian. Because she’s alive. — Please don’t stop putting me on TV.
MICHAEL: Can I speak now? I feel like this interview’s lost focus and should be about my reality show.
