'Today' Show

Opened Lindsay's Eyes

About Dina

11/17/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan now thinks her mom is part of the reason she's in the state she's in, and Lindsay's wake-up call was Dina Lohan's appearance on the "Today" show.

Sources connected with Lindsay tell TMZ Lindsay told her mom not to go on "Today" last week.  When Dina defied her and yakked with Matt Lauer, Lindsay was "furious."

Our sources say ever since the interview Lindsay has been wary of her mom and is beginning to understand her antics are part of the reason she has so many problems.  The flip side, sources say, is that Lindsay is beginning to realize Dina's demonization of Michael is not a true picture -- that both parents share the blame.

Lindsay, we're told, is impressed with her dad's seeming sincerity in reaching out.

This failed actress has been pimping out her children for years. She's toxic.

WTG Lindsay. If this is true, sounds like she is finally on the right track. Hope Dina figures it out, too.

Lindsay's eyes are NOW FULLY WIDE OPEN. Step up and put your parents in there place. Step up and save your siblings. Step up and take your life back. Step up and LIVE again ! ! ! !

FINALLY! This mother has bad mouthed this father to their children in a very unfair way. Neither mother or father is perfect but of the two of them, Dina is catastrophic in Lindsay's life. She will never allow Lindsay to be in control of her life or her relationships. She will go on to manipulate all of it UNTIL....

Lindsay catches on and stops her!

Dad is sincere. He's not sure what he should do from here but he does want expert advice for them all as a family. Dina will do everything possible to stop it. She'd lose control if she went along with it.

GREAT going, Linds. I am proud of you for the first time in years. Keep up the good work and negotiate your own life all by yourself. You can do it with the help of the therapist.

Huh. Seems like if you ask Dina any question, like "do you want salt on your margarita glass?" she responds w/"And THAT's why Michael's an A-HOLE!".

Dina jumps to answer questions that haven't been asked with answers that don't make any sense - all querying roads lead to why MiLo is such a D-Bag (in her opinion - for a jailbird drunk, druggie, misogynist flake, he's all right in my book...".

Weirdly, Dina now seems like the shaky one and MiLo seems relatively stable. Yikes.

It's always a lose - lose situation when one parent trashes another...for the kids anyway. I hope Lindsay has taken the blinders off. It is not abt what Michael has done wrong in his life, it's abt how he treats Lindsay.

She should also take a closer look at her friends.

And that will be all she gets out of rehab - she'll finally see that her mom is just as big of a snake as her father.
Then she'll get out and sit around thinking her mom, who was her "rock" is no better than her dad, and decide she needs some Grey Goose to make it feel better. Then she'll she say what the eff, and head to the hills for another house party. Only this time she'll be extra careful to not knock all the coke off the table and onto her feet, so she won't get kicked out again.

Same ol' same ol'.

**yawn**
Isn't this just a recycled story, only the parent-people are in reverse?
"Lindsay doesn't trust Daddy. Lindsay doesn't trust Mommy."
If this little girl was serious about cleaning up, we wouldn't be hearing about any of this...or seeing pics of her every day.
So sad.

Hopefully this is true, Dina Lohan has been the worst of the worst when it comes to Hollywood Mothers. She's been living vicariously through Lindsay for years! Lindsay's quality of life will be much better if she severs ties with her Mother professionally!

Parents should never be their childrens manager....and she has to be the worst one I've seen. She would be wise to hire a "real" manager and tell her mom that it's time to be a mom and not a "pal"

If that is true, then she should have taken the prison stint just to get the probation over with.

It is clear that her mother lives off her, but the behavior demonstrated by her father in the past will only result in her having to pay two parents off, if she reconnects too much with him.

Once this Frances Farmer ordeal is over, the best thing she could do is to leave Hollywood but not for New York. She should move out in the country and live on some kind of Ranch in peace without disturbance.

She still have a name, so the producers will find her regardless if she maintain a Hollywood or New York adresss, or she lives where the birds have turned around years ago.
