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 has caused Lindsay to wind up working at the morgue! Just look at this hidden pictures of poor Lindsay at the Coroners Office: http://girlsandcorpses.com/print14/lindsay.html

Has this woman not one bit of decency? Doesn't she have the least bit of shame? She enabled her daughter's behavior for over a decade, prevented her daughter from taking responsibility for her actions, ensured she was never accountable for anything she did. She kept her daughter from changing her life & made sure she continued to be in an environment that was detrimental to her, just so she could continue to collect manager fees, and so she could vicariously become famous herself. Then, when her daughter needs her help most, she's going to sell her out for money, when she's most vulnerable? If anyone deserved a bullet to the brain, it's this unbelievably horrible whore...

Will she reveal how Lindsay aged 30 years in 3? Science demands an answer.

This nutty broad was photographed out partying with Lindsay for years! She wanted to be her best friend, not her mother. The fact that her bio is complete fiction (she was a6 dancer with the Rockettes? Not according to them) and she considers herself the "White Oprah" because all of Lindsay's friends come to her for advice?!? And now this? She is on some serious drugs or delusionally as self-absorbed as her daughter.

I hope no publishing companies participate in printing this piece of crap. What kind of mother does this? It's obvious both of Lindsay's parents are screwed up, but really...To put your need for attention in front of your child's need for rehabilitation and support is just disgusting. People can say what they want about how crazy and messed up Lindsay is, but I really do feel bad for her. I've been through some rough stuff, but my parents have always supported me and would never sell my secrets for money. I can't imagine what it must be like to live in such a bright spotlight, making mistakes and having the people that are supposed to support and love you unconditionally shopping the tragic story of your life around town like it's nothing.

If this is true, this is some seriously sick sh*t. They must have some gnarly financial woes in the form of massive debt. There is no other rational (used very loosely) explanation for such a thing.

How can you feel "conflicted" about taking care of your own kid? This woman, truly is a piece of work.

Lindsey, just get mature and dump your messed up parents already. You need to mentor your younger sister now. Imagine for a minute that family attachment is not as important as the weight that society gives it. Accept that your parents are never going to be what you need, so just get on with making your own family. And do it better than they did.

Would this planned memoir not be like a stab in Lindsay's back? I wonder what would happen if Lindsay dies. What would her parents do? Still try to make money of her?
