While everyone famous and important (Including Brooke Shields somehow.) was invited to the Met Gala Monday night, Lindsay Lohan was quarantined to the “Haute & Bothered” launch party which she felt was the proper venue to make out with her little sister. Why not? But, apparently, that’s just the tip of the psychological iceberg of how Lindsay is ruining Ali. NY Daily News reports:
Some teens with out of control older sibs may copy them, while others fall into the role of trying to protect loved ones from the person. “You either try to outdo or you become a caretaker,” says Dr. Keith Ablow, psychiatrist and Fox News contributor. “The course Ali is taking appears to be more in the direction of copying than in shrinking from the cameras and the revelry,” he said.
Besides the risk of having Ali try to emulate an older sib who’s engaged in some negative behaviors, there’s the danger that she’s not getting enough parental attention because so much of it is focused on Lindsay.
“A 15-year-old should not have to be in the role or either caretaker or competitor, but she should be in a comfortable place where she can become an individual, where she can look at the world with security and choose what defines her.”
I’m no psychologist, but ultimately, isn’t Lindsay keeping Ali from their mom Dina? I’m trying to figure out how that’s a bad thing, but all I end up doing is spraying the interns with champagne. Don’t get me wrong, Ali will be snorting dump trucks full of blow and doing porn with Lindsay by 18, but that’s at least a good three, maybe even five, years later than Dina’s plan. You gotta accentuate the positive here.
