'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.

I don't believe a word out of this train wreck's mouth. The nutcase would say anything to reduce her sentence and her Mom & Dad are just as unsavory in character.
This story will end in tragedy.

And this is why she had security get rid of her dad who showed up at her apt last week when she got out? I hope this is not a bunch of bull and she really sees her mom as she is. Let's hope her eyes are open that her mom is a "user" and has been the biggest culprit who put her down the river of insanity and substance abuse. It would be great if she takes rehab serious this time and gets back to acting in good movies and not sleeze ones such as the one she has lined up about Lovelace. She needs ot rethink that one.

Both of her parents are douchebags but at what point does Lindsay take responsibility for her OWN actions? Lots of people had/have suck parents and don't turn into addicts. Get over it. Adult recovering addicts blaming their parents? **** OFF! At some point in your life you have to put on your big girl panties and be an adult.

Lindsay needs to keep both of her parents at arms length from this point on and focus on getting her life together. Sadly, neither parent can be fully trusted.

If this is true, the reality of things is a huge, sad lesson for Lindsay but one she needs for the foundation of her recovery.
Dina has manipulated things to her advantage for years. Realizing the person you have depended on to the degree Lindsay has is toxic...that's huge. Sounds like BF is doing some great work.

its about effing time.dina has been manipulating lilo and her income since the 90`s.she wanted no mikey around so she could have her hooks perm into lindsay and have a cash cow for herself and her habbits/lifestyle.i still think dina was the enabler for the xanax and coke from her last trip to long island.i am a former cokehead recovered for many years now but i can still see the effects of it in people quite often from being around it and users for so long and in my opinion dina is using "something" which to me seems like coke.if she truly cared about her daughter how she claims she would not have left her in LA to do more coke and get in more trouble instead she sends her other daughter to party with lilo.

I'd choose daddy if he'd act his age. Those pictures of him partying it up with Tila, and the pictures of him at the Saddle Ranch Bar dosent set a very good example.
Grow up! Old men look stupid partying with women young enough to be their daughter

Parental alienation always backfires, but it's the child that gets burned. Her mother, as the perpetrator, needs to be held accountable. The very least she can do is attend family therapy for her daughter, forgetting her own desires for once.

C'mon Lindsay, everyone who knows your dad can tell you that he is a monster. Hate and love can not exist at the same time. The man spews too much hate. Don't fall for him. He IS the monster you always thought he was. He'll drag you down deeper. The only thing worse than a person who is bad is a bad person PRETENDING to be good. They are the worse of all.

I FEEL SO TERRIBLE FOR LINDSAY WHEN IT COMES TO THIS TOPIC.

DINA LOHAN IS THE DEVIL IN DISGUISE.


She' not out for the well being of Lindsay.....Lindsay is just a work horse to her that provides a large paycheck.

Based of all the stories I have read here on TMZ, it seems to me as if Dina cares more for her other "untainted" children than she does for poor Lindsay.

Both parents suck but Michael seems to be trying to change for his daughters well being. Dina seems to want no part in Lindsays recuperation by not wanting to participate.....
