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.”

@Chazz It was TMZ that divulged that Lindsay was at Betty Ford. We don't know how they got their information. Michael then started commenting about Betty Ford and once pictures were revealed of Lindsay at the facility, her lawyer and mother commented.

@jwoolman Lindsay doesn't say much. Most stories have come from Michael Lohan since the failed drug test or fabrications or old stories to keep Lindsay in the tabloids. And let's put the failed drug test in perspective. Lindsay tested CLEAN from May 24 to July 20 showing she could at least for weeks not take any drugs. She then went to jail, a psych ward and went from in-patient to outpatient status where a few weeks after going into outpatient status she failed her first test in over 2 months of testing. And, for those that think she's going to OD, has she had an OD since 2007? Most of her episodes were 2005-2007 of heavy drug usage, from 2008 to 2010 the extent of her alcohol and drug usage is assumed based on selected pictures and sensationalist stories about her, not on anything real like stays in hospitals for drug overdoses.

@ 200 Jwoolman

On Friday if judge Fox sentences Lindsay to jail and then rehab and she surrenders on the spot he will be in a very bad position. Forcing her into jail before she has finished Betty Ford and then forcing her into a different rehab will be seen as petty and brutal as well as idiotic. At some point he will have to run for reelection and this situation will be a real weight around his neck.
He has already made one unethical move in denying her bail and having his decision overturned before the ink was dry a second screw up will be very hard to explain away.

Dina needs to stay away from her daughter. I know its hard but she is a media WHORE who only gets money from her daughters' problems. Same with her Dad. If they really want the best for their daughter then back off and let her heal herself then family problems, etc. And keep Dina away from the Kardashingons (SP?) they have worked really hard to maintain a ligetimen biz dont let Dina take that down too.

I doubt he would force her into a different rehab but if she only wants to complete 30 days and finish on 0ct 28th then rehab just becomes like jail were if she doesn't follow the rules she would go to jail anyway. If she got jail and rehab, on top of months more of formal probation then she should just pick jail and put this behind her.

The DUIs were in 07 and she has done all the programs and the DWI charges have been dismissed
Some people's sentencing ideas are ludicrous like 6 months in rehab why on earth would she agree to that for a misdemeanor.
1 month or whatever even all the attorney visits would be cheaper than months in rehab or more violations of probation.

has anybody noticed neither dina nor michael even once has asked for privacy for their daughter in this difficult time, both dina and michael are hungry for media attention, and can not stop for one minute to think about lindsay, and how much lindsay needs to be left alone to heal from her messed up life, i don't think in history of time there can have been a kid more embarrassed over her parents than lindsay, see now i solved why she drinks and drugs herself and ends up in trouble with the law, she is running away from her parents, first by getting drunk nonstop and then by getting locked up repeatedly, and both her parents are still stalking her and pimping her to the press, when lindsay dies it will be dina and michaels fault entirely, they wont leave their grown up daughter alone, bad bad bad parents....

@208 not only that.My interest in this particular case is due to the fact we're seeing a lot of these cases recently with CELEBS and that means you can be sure the problem is far bigger with "ordinary people" . The new trend seems to be dependency on prescribed drugs as well ( not saying that's the case with LL ) : Michal Jackson, Britany Murphy + husband ,Greg Giraldo etc. which makes me wonder if medical profession in USA hasn't gone haywire in prescribing that stuff.

Why no one is looking at the larger picture here is beyond me . Why do youths feel it's required or desirable to drink those amounts of alcohol or use drugs while partying ?? If you only do that ONCE you're already suffering from a substance -problem ( this for Nicole who seems to think it's not worrisome if you only do that "occasionally" ) because it indicates you're incapable of having a great time without any substances whatsoever.

No one - not me at least - is suggesting the judge sentences her to a mandatory treatment of one year . But you have to ask yourself if it wouldn't be best for HER to do so without any judge having to tell her. If you are friend or family you should be the first to insist she completes the treatment - however long that takes ,even if that means a full year - and not bring up the judge constantly . That isn't a legal issue , it's about caring for her physical and mental well being.

Besides : there isn't a single movie studio ( barring very questionable ones ) willing to hire her unless they're absolutely 100% certain this whole thing is over and she's sober and clean. That won't take 4 weeks or even 4 months ,it might very well take one year .

Judge Fox was up for election this year. He won when he was unopposed in the primary.
