Lindsay's Mom $hopping

Post-Rehab Interview

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan's sainted mother Dina is shopping around an interview for after she visits Lindsay in rehab this weekend ... and the asking price is in the five figures.

We're told Dina is trying to set up a deal that would include allowing cameras to film her as she went to the Betty Ford Center this weekend. Some reports have suggested that Dina is pitching a reality show based on the ordeal, but we're told that's not true.

Our sources say Dina is asking "in the high five figures" for the interview. We're told none of the proceeds will go to charity.

Sources close to Dina tell TMZ, “There is absolutely no truth to this.”

This is why she should refuse formal probation and any court ordered rehab.
If she is lucky she could be completely free by Thanksgiving and celebrate or travel with no legal restrictions or repercussions.

So ironic, right after you report the death of Barbara Billingsley, who was the quintessential mom, a bright, funny, charming, talented, compassionate, caring mother figure to millions....you seque to that pig skank Dina, the mother from hell that no one wants! What a change, from heaven to the nether regions. Dina and that disgusting father are parasites, vile creatures sucking the life and money out of their cash cow, Lezby. Genetically she and her siblings were doomed from birth!

A sensible manager will tell Lindsay to shut up and just smile for the cameras until she's been certifiably sober for at least a year. Then she can tell everybody how she did it, and we'll all be interested. Otherwise - she is bound to just sound even more foolish at this point.

I find it really hard to believe that any reputable interviewer is going to want to waste time on her at the moment, especially after the weirdness Dina inflicted on us not too long ago with her "interview". Maybe if she does it for free, if they need to fill a time slot. But she still will be much better off keeping quiet for now. Not good for her to make more promises she won't keep and spin more lies that are easily contradicted by very public facts.

If she can manage to stay out of trouble long enough to get the legal leash unhooked, she then needs to focus on convincing potential employers that she's worth the risk if she wants to get acting jobs outside of porn and near-porn. That will be a long haul. She can do it, but she will just shoot herself in the foot if she wastes more time trying to do pointless PR that is bound to backfire. She has the talent, she can prove herself if she learns how to live sober. So sobriety has to come first for her. That will take a lot more time than just a few weeks in Betty Ford.

And Nicole at #15: "the legal and rehab bills must be insane for this joke of a 3 year old case" only because Lindsay herself has drawn it out. The joke is all on her. In recent bail bondsman fees alone she could pay for Betty Ford. She's wasted her money on lawyers to delay the inevitable because of her own foul-ups, and she proved she can't handle cheaper outpatient rehab. If she just had buckled down 3 years ago and sorted herself out then, scrupulously following the court's clear instructions for her probation, she would be doing fine now and have a lot more money in her pocket.

OK, let's go with NICOLE's scenario. Lindsay refuses probation and serves straight time. This will consist of her cruising through the jail drive-up window and swiping her AmEx card. Time served. Problem solved. No probation - she's free and clear.

Six days later, she suffers a massive stroke after way too much methamphetamine, cocaine, Adderral, and RedBull. She crashes her custom-made half-million-dollar Maybach into a group of visiting dignitaries, and is permanently committed to an assisted-living facility. They are forced to remove her hair extensions to prevent her from eating them (Dina sells them on eBay).

Fast forward: E entertainment debuts its newest "high-end" reality show - Starring Dina Lohan and NICOLE Lohan. They fritter away their days and nights spending what's left of Lindsay's money power-shopping on Manhattan's 5th Avenue, all the while cursing the paparazzi and blaming them for poor Lindsay's tragic fate.

Then it's back to their matching Presidential Suites at the Four Seasons Hotel, where they (alternately) spend their days and nights ingesting prodigious amounts of cocaine and Cristal champagne, plotting the next lawsuit - against Judge Marsha Revell - for damages to their emotional well-being, all due to the fact that the Judge failed to take poor Lindsay's frail condition seriously and allowed her to go free and suck the glass di#k toward her eventual fate.

Ali's there, too just back from her latest nose-removal procedure as well as the installation of her newest necessity: remote-controlled hair-color changer.

The series will be named "Team SocioSnatche' (pronounced "sna-shay") and will last 2.5 episodes before NICOLE's untimely demise after she helplessly chokes to death on a mouthful of Beluga caviar. Like watching the Kardashians, but with considerably less estrogen. This was meant to be....

Rikwes at #10: "so you'd set free a person convicted for armed robbery - or any other violent crime- just to satisfy your twisted ( yes:twisted ) sense of justice - in order to make room for an ADDICT "

Uh-- probably at least half the people in the county jail are there just waiting for trial (and many, if not most, will be acquitted) because they can't afford bail. Of the rest - many are there for truly nonviolent crimes that did not involve any risk to others. People who recklessly drive drunk and drugged (like Lindsay) are not nonviolent. They are randomly aiming a several thousand pound weapon at the rest of us, and are as "nonviolent" as somebody randomly shooting bullets toward people on the street. Anybody whose original crime involved a DUI should be at the bottom of the list for early release for overcrowding. Does she have to kill or maim someone before people get that point?

Nevertheless - I have no problem with sentencing her to a good, long stay in a strict rehab on her dime. She still obviously needs a long timeout. And until she gets and stays sober - she's too likely to take the wheel again while under the influence. We've seen this story play out that way too often in this country.

Spot at #112: She should "play hardball" with the judge? And this would help her out how? She's clearly in the wrong here, she's the one who couldn't avoid the drugs for just a few weeks, she's admitted it, she violated the terms of her probation. If she wants to spend time in jail instead of rehab, fine. Let her ask politely and respectfully for that alternate sentence. But she can't blame the judge for the mess she's in. She did it all to herself.

And Lindsay wanting jail rather than rehab certainly wouldn't be a "career-ending move" for the judge. He sees people just like her (minus the paps) all the time in his courtroom, she isn't special. Sometimes people do choose jail instead of paying fines, for instance - no big deal, their choice. But "Team Lindsay" here on TMZ are the only ones getting hysterical over normal court procedures. Elsewhere, people are clearly fed up with Lindsay's repeated throwing away of so many opportunities and her pointless delaying tactics. The judge's career is quite safe.

Lindsay's career, on the other hand, hinges on her getting control over drugs and alcohol - one way or another. Acting like a twit again in the courtroom won't help her at all.

dumas1000 at #130: Jail isn't intended to cure addiction. Jail is intended to maximize the chances that the next time the person might be going out to get drunk or drugged, he or she will think long and hard before taking car keys. Rehab is allowed as an alternative sentence in the hope that if an addict gets control over alcohol and other drugs, then the same purpose will be served. But it's not the court's job to fix the addict.

You know what's funny is TMZ or any news organization said what rehabilition center Lindsay was getting her treatment at. This request was made by herself, her lawyers & her agents to not divulge the name of her treatment facility. This was to totally protect and shield her from the papanazi, reporters & other people who just wanted a story. Her parents told everyone that she was at Betty Ford receiving her treatment, nobody but a select few knew that until they carelessley told everybody where wshe is at. I really feel sorry for her, I live in West Hollywood myslef & I see her alot. I hope that when she get's out I have a chance to say Hi. Lindsay also needs to surround herslef with people that have her best interests in mind.
