Dina Lohan Sells Lindsay

Down the River

in Planned Memoir

10/21/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's mom is trying to expose her own daughter's dark secrets, blowing the lid off of Lindsay's alleged drug and alcohol use in a memoir that she's shopping around town -- shopping it as recently as 2 weeks ago -- as Lindsay was looking down the barrel of a hostile judge and a jail sentence.

TMZ has obtained the draft of a prologue for Dina Lohan's memoir, which Dina's rep is shopping to people in the literary world.  In the prologue, Dina writes:

"I blamed her friends, her career and her handlers for an (sic) newfound lifestyle of partying excessively.  Drinking, drugging and behaving irresponsibly became Lindsay's way of daily living--and it tore me up inside."

Dina explains why she moved Lindsay from New York to L.A. at such a young age:

"How could I deny my daughter the chance of a lifetime?  How could I hold Lindsay back from her dream of becoming an actress?  So, I listened to others and sent my daughter to Hollywood with a few pieces of luggage and a chaperone."

When Lindsay began acting crazy, accumulating mugshots and what not, Dina says she was helpless, claiming she couldn't demand that Lindsay return to New York.  Dina also confesses she was conflicted since she was both Lindsay's parent and manager.

Dina and her rep were soliciting meetings via email two weeks ago, to brainstorm how to make her book "a best seller."

Our sources say a ghost writer actually wrote the prologue after long sit-downs with Dina and her rep, and both were solidly on board.

As far as we know ... so far, no takers.

They're horrible parents. It CAN be done. Just look at Britney. She was too lazy and busy riding lindsey's coattails.

Thank You Conrad Murray    

Wow, really? Is there really a conflict of interest between being a Mother and a Manager?? Seriously? A normal GOOD Mother wouldn't think twice about being a Mom first. What an idiot.
How's she supposed to be a Manager and make money if her daughter ends up dead? You know things are really bad when Michael Lohan is the good parent.

Not a surprise though from a woman that gets wasted in clubs with her daughter and MAKES-OUT with her in public. I still love that TMZ completely ignored those photos.
Yeah.. get drunk with your addict daughter and perform an incestuous make-out session with her. I guess that night she was her Manager.. not her Mother.

Little known fact: Dina Lohan was the original model for the ubiquitous blow-up sex doll. The above photo is from the final modeling session.

Both her parents are deadbeats, the girl never had a chance. Dina selling Lindsay down the river and that cheap douche Milo selling her down the river every day.

I expect Milo to give an interview about this as well but we shouldn't forget what he has done, Selling 3 year old tapes of Lindsay when she was at her lowest, trying to sell pages of her 2007 diary to a entertainment website, making promises to Lindsay that he doesn't keep, talks bull**** about her every day for money.

Milo blames her problems on their divorce. He forgot to mention he was in and out of prison, his drinking, his drug habit, beating his wife, his kids, threatening to kill his kids, kidnap them, as a kid Lindsay physically trying to stop him beating his wife. Also the time when Lindsay was a kid she found him in the bathroom when he slit his wrists, yeah Milo doesn't take responsibility for any of this.

Now we have mother of the year going over old ground and hurting her daughter as her useless father does every day. Lindsay, get BOTH of them outtta your life.

Not even if I were given a gold-plated copy of her book would I waste my time reading it. Who cares what this waste of parenthood thinks about anything?

Dina just sit back and wait for lindsay's demise,that's where the big money is at..Her book and movie will be a gold mind after she takes a dirt nap...
Lindsay is your retirement plan before she hits 27

Umm, Jill09? Didn't you just say 3 days ago that Dina would NEVER sell her daughter out?

Dina probably just realized that models (except for "super models" and Ali is definitely NOT a super model} do not make a lot of money. Most models are paid in free clothes. Dina is NOT Ali's manager, either. NEXT Models is Ali's manager, so Dina is basically left with NOTHING from Ali except designer clothes.Ali cannot support the whole loser family on a model's wages, so now Dina is in a panic.

Dina is about as ugly as Nancy Grace is with her flaring nostrils.
