'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.

The only person this girl has to blame is herself! Nobody told her to start drinking and using drugs. She is a grown ass women, she needs to take responsibility for her own actions. I can't stand her!

Just like an addict to STILL be blaming others for her problems. First it's Dad's fault, now it's Mom's fault... look in the mirror Lindsay.

lindsay can change. this is possible. i know that it can. she doesn't need to have her mom ruin her life for her. and the same with some of the friends she has. she needs to be careful with whom she hangs out with. what friends influents her to do stuff she shouldnt be doing. she can go on the road to recovery finally. she is a smart person. she can do this. figure stuff out on her own with the help of a therapist and what not. i really hope this is the final straw for her.

If this is true, she should dump her "mis-management" team (a.k.a. Dina) and get herself a real team. Somebody who knows Hollywood, child stars and can get her career back on track. And she should tell both her parents "I don't want to see you for 5 years." Give herself some time to be her own person and grow up.

Any report against Dina, Jill says is leaked by Michael. Surprised she didn't say "Mikey" as she usually does. Apparently the paps don't speak to anyone but Mikey, according to Jill.

For once Lindsay I am on your side. I have not liked your mother and wondered what your problem is with your dad. Your mother is toxic, she will say what ever it takes to get her way, and she is poisoning you and your siblings. Keep improving your life, learn to make your own decisions and you will see.

I'm not a big fan of Lindsey's but it certainly sounds like she's in a place that is helping her figure out all the messed up things in such a dysfunctional family. I so hope that Lindsey will get through this and make a much needed come back. Sometimes you have to put distance with the person/people you thought would never hurt you to move on. Many Blessings Lindsey!! Wishing you nothing but the best.

@Jill
I don't understand why you get your undies in a bunch when her mother gets called out for the self-absorbed person that she is. Do you know anything about the recovery process? Do you know anything about addiction?

Dina must be in a drunken state with empty booze bottles everywhere, slurring "damn that Betty Ford!"

well it's all upside down I see , usually the kids go after parents' money and not the other way 'round

that's the way it is, LiLo : the point is that she's a talented star and she should care less about this odd situation.

she has her whole life of success right in front of her.

cut the money, they'll (both) stay away and with time they'll realize that they made a big mistake. But they'll be back in her life, with time, and without her money.

simple.
