Michael Lohan -- Am I On the List?

10/18/2010 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Lohan showed up at the Betty Ford Center today to try to see his daughter Lindsay, and although he was turned away -- believe it or not -- there's still hope Michael might get inside.

As we first reported, Michael is trying to visit Lindsay as part of Betty Ford's "Family Week" -- and he is technically family.

Sources say Michael was turned away by a guard at Betty Ford who referred him to someone in charge of the "Family Week" list.

We're told Michael went to his nearby hotel room and made the call -- he's waiting for a call back. .

The one who should be arrested is her mother, Dina.

I'm inclined to side with you dumas1000. "Ernie" does seem a bit trollish. Micheal is a coward child abuser. Okay "Ernie", a CHILD ABUSER. The mother with her faults is trying to support her daughter. That okay with you "Ernie"??? If Michael gave a **** he would be in his OWN therapist's office offloading his psychoness to better his OWN existence and not giving performances.

I'm really starting to believe that you are ML and just because Dina didn't admit LL's problem publically doesn't mean she was in denial.

When Lindsay was actually talking to Michael after August 07 when she got the plea deal he saved the phonecalls from the Cirque about how she wanted out after it became court ordered
and played them to Access Hollywood.

Him repeatedly requesting that the Judge send LL to court ordered rehab clearly wasn't the best option when non compliance can result in jail time.
Dina does her best and has been there for Lindsay.

When is Lindsay gonna stop with the blame game? It is a broken record of an excuse. Five rehabs and the lights should start to come on.... don't ya think? Excuses, blame, denial are all a part of her way of weaseling out of her responsibilies for her actions.

If she really wants to get help... maybe she should open up her ears and listen to the people who have tried to help her over these last few years.

Blame? Really?

Sad sad    

Ernie = Hi it's me Michael. Expose her???? Like the naked photos sent to the media just as a scare tactic. I can believe any human with a brain would ever defend this guy. Even the dudes from TMZ.

I am not defending Mr. Lohan. Their is more than enough blame within that family to go around.

However, LiLo is a big girl now ... and been to rehab and jail, etc. for way too long.

Excuses do not heal anyone.

The entire Lohan family needs to get into one room and work out their issues before one of them winds up doa.

I totally agree with Pheebs, LiLo should talk to her dad just one time more ... if only to tell him to buzz off. It seems like it's the only way he'll listen. I'm thinking this guy is thick as a brick and is rationalizing his apparent obsession with his daughter by telling himself that it isn't really LiLo saying she doesn't want to be around him, but Dina.

OTOH ... what's with this line, TMZ? "As we first reported, Michael is trying to visit Lindsay as part of Betty Ford's "Family Week" -- and he is technically family." There's no "technically" about it, he *IS* family. Granted, not Father of the Year material, but still ...

@ weed. That's right!!! Forgiveness is the real issue here. They all need to forgive... and Family Week at BFC would be a good place to do it.

Go for it, Michael!!!

A real addict/ alcoholic in recovery such as himself (so he says) would NEVER give up their own sobriety to visit with their daughter...he is totally full of ****...i don't believe one word out of this loser's mouth...On the flip side, the mother is no better...she is manipulative, overbearing, a liar, a drug addict and believes she is better than everyone else. F u c king *******s the both of them...take'em to the river and drown them both!!!

Ernie you are a f*cking moron, and Lindsay is definitely not a party girl anymore, she hasn't been for awhile now and her father's abuse was very likely the amin reason WHY she started partying so hard in the first place, so quit trying to defend this ass*ole, no sane person would EVER try to force him and Lindsay to talk, that could only to disaster, again Dina has made some terrible decisions liks sending Lindsay to live in LA by herself at 17, and yes she does seem to like the attention and money her name brings, but that dosen't automatically mean she dosen't care about Lindsay or her well-being, like I said before she was the one who raised Lindsay for most of her life, because her father was in prison for assaulting her and who knows what else, her father didn't "save" Lindsay from anything , yes he was right about her having a problem, but he was the one who almost undoubtedly caused her problem in the first place, so no Lindsay isn't going to get in trouble just because she distances herself from her father, if anything it'll help her get better, that guy is seriously f*cked in the head and he NEEDs a restraining order before he hurts someone, I hope you're listening to this Ernie A.K.A. Michael Lohan! I know who you are you sick bastard! Leave Lindsay the hell alone! She'll forgive you when and if she's good and ready, she owes you NOTHING after the sh*tty way you've treated her all these years! get that though your pea-sized brain before you do something REALLY stupid!

This family has been airing its' dirty laundry way too long in the public. I mean, who really cares at this point? If they don't then we should? Really? We all seem to know exactly what they need to do.. and yet ... more laundry comes out and they just don't get it.

well if it is family counseling week he should actually be there I don't care who they are, like he says if he is the cause of all her stress, well then he should definately be included I think if we don't leave her alone then why should he LOL

@ darkrage6 --- now.. now darkage6 ... relax. Take a deep breath and count to ten. You are using way too big of words here on TMZ... such as ... "f*** moron" ... my ... where did you learn that expression?

Miss Lohan has been partying right up to her latest arrest ... violation ... or whatever you want to call it. Have we forgotten already why she is in BFC???


Lindsay does not have anymore excuses left in her little pea brain. It is now "get real" or get use to those orange jumpsuits.

@72 you can't force her timing . If the BFC's therapists are any good they will know that as well. If you force her to do family counseling before she's ready for it it pretty much destroys everything you have accomplished up until that time. It is far too early for her to be doing that . Usually this happens right near the end of a 90 day stay ,not after two weeks .

We don't even know if she's already taking responsibility for her own life and actions ( that's usually after 10 days or something like that ) let alone deal with the variables leading to her addiction. I sure hope they're not rushing her through the 12 steps program because that is a 100 % way to failure. Taking it ONE step at a time and only proceeding when she's ready is vital for this to work. To have mum and dad fighting all over the place while this treatment is ongoing isn't exactly contributing to her recovery process. It might be wise for BFC to tell both parents to take a hike and start with brother and sister.
