Dina Lohan Sells Lindsay

Down the River

in Planned Memoir

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.

Dina knows she can't ride on Lindsay's "coat tails" any other way, so this is her answer to getting fame and attention for herself. What a f'n mother of the year candidate she has turned out to be.

well....that's interesting because rumor has it that Dina has for years, been working as Lindsay's "pimp", or rather "Madam" in this case, for incredibly wealthy people overseas.
Anyone feel like looking into that? Odds are no. Too much for people to face. Especially Dina and Lindsay. I feel bad for her.

What a POS, hopefully Lilo immediately cuts her off financially and kicks her out of her life. Can you imagine what Dilo would do if Milo were the one writing this? I hate this bietch!!!!!!!

Dear Dina Lohan, instead of blaming her friends, career and handlers let start blaming YOU as a parent. You failed as a parent sending her and thinking a darn chaperone is suppose to raise your child. You are a poor parent and her behavior shows it. So go and sit your A** down and write about how you failed as being a parent to all of your children, because you decided to party with them at clubs through the night and left your other kids in another state to be raised by someone else. Stop competing with your daughter with plastic surgery thinking you will look flawless. Flawless comes from within!
