Dina --

I 'Understand'

Lindsay is an Addict

11/8/2010 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dina Lohan says she finally understands that Lindsay Lohan is an "addict" -- and after all the drama, she's "happy" and "relieved" that her daughter is now at Betty Ford.

Dina appeared on the "Today" show this morning with Matt Lauer -- and talked all things Lindsay ... including our video of Lindsay shopping yesterday, an endeavor that Dina says was BF approved.

All things said, Dina's thoughts were clear ... things are looking up for Lindsay.

To all of you people giving your advice, how many of you have children that are in the entertainment industry in a major million-dollar production? You're yapping but you haven't walked in Dina's shoes nor do you deal with public scrutiny. Don't be so sure you could handle it.

Also, how much drugs does Lindsay consume? How often? What drugs? If you can't answer these questions then you aren't in a position to talk of what type of dangers Lindsay faces due to her connection with substance abuse. People just throw this dumb term "Addict" around without any responsibility of knowing the specifics.

Guess what people? Dina and Michael and Ali and all of the other Lohans owe you NOTHING in terms of information. They can tell you Lindsay takes magic green sawdust. Dina may have exercised the option to say that she won't discuss LIndsay's private life but she chose to not acknowledge anything regarding Lindsay. Again, if you go to the radaronline tapes that Michael made of Dina it is quite obvious that she was NEVER in denial PRIVATELY about Lindsay's issues. She didn't tell the public, big difference than not knowing or dealing with it within the family the way she saw fit.

@happyweb Talk to Mike Jr., Ali, or Cody before you go and claim that Dina has no parental guidance to her children. Mike Jr., 22-years old, has done a great job with his life so far graduating college summa c u m laude. It is so interesting that you critics convieniently forget that Dina has FOUR children, not just Lindsay.

Who says she doesn't offer constructive criticism? You people KNOW NOTHING of what she does. You just don't like her for whatever reason but you certainly offer weak arguments based on the smallest flimsiest amount of information to totally judge someone's parenting abilities. If you don't like her public persona, her hair style, her voice, her mannerisms, that's one thing. But you guys have some gall to claim that you know anything about her parenting based on one of her four children's very public personal problems.

Hey Dina, aka Delmar - YOU just might want to deal with YOUR addictions, including the internet. And BTW, FTW -
I 'Understand' Dina is an Idiot.

PS and to the psycho who thinks it is ok to put your kids in Million dollar productions now that you know where it can take them...you are a psychopathic narcissitic chile whorer. Let them grow up and go to college you moron. I am positive you are not from So.Cal cuz those of us in the industry here who care about morals and values for our children and put their education first refuse to put them in the industry.

All we can do to help is to stop supporting her parents in any way and never ever watch, buy or become involved in reading about the younger sibs especially ally

Yeah, then WHY are you always on here DENYING her problems while posting under some fake name, then blabbing about what a great job you did with her? You DIDN'T do a great job, Delmar, NO ONE BUT YOU THINKS YOU DID. And stop denying everything, you've got some major reality issues.

You really enrage me, Dina, you're always braying about what a wonderful parent you are while your daughter bears the scars of your terrible parenting, and will for the rest of her life. You are an extremely negligent parent who doesn't even care, to this day, about the pain you have caused Lindsay. You just spout on and on about how great you are. I hope that one day Lindsay tells you what you've done to her, in no uncertain words, and has nothing to do with you unless you clean up your act.

I could care less about DL's appearance or style.

In the clip on this thread she said she never criticized her child even when she caused problems at school. Listen to what she said.

The fact that one of her children was able to graduate from college summa *** laude shows that that particular child was able to work hard despite the parenting he received -- not because of it.

She looks much better than Linsey! So, when Linsey reaches that age, if she live that long, she is going to look about 60 year alt allready!

Whether Dina actually believes it or not, the fact that the words were capable of coming out her mouth is a AWESOME STEP. If nothing else at least ONCE the thought "MY MOM THINKS I AM A DRUG ADDICT?" will cross Lindsay mind.
I think at this point, DINA UNDERSTANDING that Lindsay is an addict (in addiction to other emotional problems) IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE EFFECTIVE IN LINDAYS RECOVERY THAN LINDSAY HERSELF "SEEING IT" AT THIS STAGE. HER MOTHER COULD SABATOGE LINDSAY RECOVERY IF SHE STILL COULD NOT TRULY GET IT THROUGH HER HEAD THAT... COCAINE TREATS FOR LIL' BABIES DESSERT, JUST AIN'T GOOD FOR LIL' BABY....
I think she IS STARTING TO PICK UP THAT LINDSAY AND SHE JUST DON"T LIVE IN SLEEPING BEAUTYS CASTLE ANYMORE.
I see Lindsay and Dina have a VERY VERY tight BOND, whether it is good or bad or sick or loving or whatever it is, IT IS. DINA IS LINDSAY'S MOTHER regardless of her CAPABILITIES to be a GOOD MOTHER, DINA IS THE ONLY MOTHER LINSDAY HAS EVER KNOWN. AND LINDSAY LOVES HER. CHILDREN LOVE BAD MOMMIES TOO. It is of GREAT credit of the capabilities of Lindsay's HEART and true character that she is CAPABLE of loving DINA. Dina is very, very SICK. Lindsay knows this, that why she drugs it out. I BELIEVE, I REALLY DO THAT it is lindsay who is protecing DINA from Dina's addictions, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
Think about that. I'd love commentary.
We will only heal Lindsay, if we are capable as a society and of being "real" friends at all, if we HELP DINA in EVERY EFFORT she makes to SEE THE LIGHT.
She can not be bullied, (I have tried) she is stronger than steel in that head of hers when it comes to CONVICTION. She will not be told what is WRONG, but she can be seduced into seeing what is RIGHT.
Dina may be a spongue and self-centered, but DINA DOES CARE ABOUT LINDSAY, "in her own way",DINA LOVES LINDSAY., "in her own way", remember, just incase you need that disclaimer.
Hate on Dina all you want, some people are known as what is TREATMENT RESISTANT..and require people on the sidelines SCREAMING YOU ARE SICK, YOU ARE SICK., YOU ARE SICK, Aszhole...can you hear me now? STUPID ASZHOLE, YOU ARE SICK.
Coodling DINA is not at ALL WHAT I AM SUGGESTING. But, please, do not try to bash her INTO the ground, when she is TRYING TO CARRY LINDSAY. I am MEAN to Lindsay in words, because I know Lindsay some, and I know what is imporatant to her. I may appear "cruel," at times because I so wantv her to understand what I am trying to say, in very few words. YOUR LIFE DOESN"T HAVE TO BE LIKE THIS. Not once have my "cruel words" ever been intended to insult lindsay MALICIOUSLY. I know that is not understood by most, I am OK with that. It's a new way of thinking.,I call it BLUNT LOVE.
We have to try something new, everything else has failed.
Dina, I bash you not, it wouldn't help. I DO HOWEVER think there is something that both you and Lindsay could use as a tool that would be very helpful......LEARN TO DISTINQUISH BETWEEN CRITISISM AND CRITIQUE!!!!!
and for you both also,
FOR AT LEAST THE NEXT FEW WEEKS, COULD YOU TRY TO DISCOVER WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU: TALK HALF AS MUCH, AND LISTEN TWICE AS MUCH? MAKE IT A GAME, just what would happen?
Neither one of you are truly STUPID, you are ACTING STUPID.
PAY ATTENTION AND YOU WILL SEE HOW TO RISE OUT OF IT AGAIN.
Blessings.
