Lindsay's Mom $hopping

Post-Rehab Interview

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.”

God, go figure. Who gives a sh*t if it's true? The fact is, we all know she has a propensity for this kind of thing. Michael is no better. The only difference is he is stupid enough to run his mouth for free. What a f*cking circus. There is truly no hope for any of the kids in this so-called family. Shameless, the whole lot of them.

Who is the worst of them all ?

Let's see we have Lindsay, Dina, Michael.
Lindsay is a coke *hore/alcoholic/drug addict.
Michael is a alcoholic/drug addict.
DINA --- What is her excuse ? ? ? ?

Since we watched your reality show Dina I'm sure you'll be having your assistant read all this stuff to you. We don't care about what your daughter has to say. Maybe in 10 years IF she stays clean and sober. Otherwise, move along, move along.

I'm not going to believe any rumors until the stuff is actually happening.

I don't know anything about Dina except she chose a bad father for Lindsey. Michael Lohan, on the other hand, has shown again and again he's a crazy stalker.

As for TMZ ethics, someone was asking about it on another LL blog post - the answer is that TMZ is pure business. This site WANT nutty things to happen, they LOVE to be able to report disasters and people being torn to shreds. That's their bread and butter! They couldn't care less about how people feel or their well-being, because if everyone in Hollywood would be just fine and taking good care of each other, they'd be out of jobs.

Lindsay's MAIN priority for the next year or so should be staying sober and getting the basics of her life reorganized. She needs to move out of her place in West Hollywood to a quiet, gated community house with security guards. Somewhere far away from the paparazzi and the "party scene" on Sunset Strip and all that. She needs a new place where she can start over.

She should focus on clean living and getting her acting skills sharp so she can take on Hollywood again sometime next year. Who knows, maybe she could work with some good music producers and give Katy Perry and Lady Gaga some competition with her music. Having 2 or 3 hit songs can make people forget an entertainer's past problems pretty quick.

At the end of the day, the entertainment business is all about TALENT. Creating hit songs, creating Oscar winning characters in movies, creating Emmy winning TV characters, etc. Lindsay is not going to maximize her talent if she's out doing drugs and partying at clubs all the time. Simple as that.

Drugs and boozing at parties all the time has been wrecking the careers of entertainers for the past 80 years or so (at least). What makes Lindsay think it won't do THE SAME THING to her? When you are 24 you still feel a bit immortal. Someone needs to let her know that she's NOT. Drugs and alcohol eventually take everyone out. It's just a matter of sooner vs. later.

this story is probably as truthful as the one about her escaping BFC for a soda drink ( i.e. complete BS ) . However : I still think it might be best for Lindsay - at this time at least - if both parents did not visit her and did not comment on their daughter in the media . In my opinion only the siblings ( sister and brother ) should visit for now. Every time mum or dad tries to visit it's splattered all over the news media and there's always "trouble " .

I suppose she trying to once again to get a reality show. What's really sad is that people will tune in. doesn't Dina realize that LL has to stay out of the spotlight until she is fully recovered. It's all about the mighty dollar for that family.

This woman is vile. I hope someone in rehab gets through to Lindsay and convinces her to push her mother out of her life. At least for a little while. Michael and Dina should never have been allowed to reproduce.

Why hasn't a judge or a drug counselor from the clinic stepped in to file some sort of injunction asking that neither Dina nor Michael have contact with her while she's in rehab? All either of them wants, it seems, is to use LL's name to get their own notoriety. They clearly don't care what is best for their daughter and they will literally do anything to make a fast buck, even at the expense of their kids safety and well being. Dina has been the one saying from the beginning that LL doesn't have a drug problem, and that everything is fine. Clearly she's in denial since her kids in rehab. Michael has been saying that she needs help, but he only does what benefits him. They are both useless, horrible excuses for parents and should have NEVER been allowed to use their daughter for this long. I think that SOMEONE should ask a judge to keep them away, they can't be doing any good and they are only looking for a way to make money off their daughters issues.

I think that the media (including TMZ here) should STOP reporting on everything they do. If there wasn’t an outlet willing to pay this woman FIVE figures to bank off her daughter by sharing details of what she’s going through in rehab, then she’d have no motivation to do it in the first place. Yes, people like celebrity news, but this is her daughter! She should care more about that then making some money by selling her story.
