Dina Lohan

Fidgety, Sweaty, Mumbling

During Dr. Phil Interview

9/17/2012 2:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Despite insisting she was completely sober for her big Dr. Phil interview, Dina Lohan appears completely out of it during the hour-long sit-down ... sweating, slurring, and fumbling her words through the entire thing.

You'll recall, Dr. Phil's people released a teaser for the interview last week -- in which Dina appears seriously dazed and confused -- but Dina insisted she had not been drinking beforehand, telling TMZ, "I don’t care what it looks like. I’m fine and I don’t care what anyone says."

Dina blamed the editing for making her look messed up -- but after the interview aired today, it seems editing wasn't to blame ... something just wasn't right with Lindsay's mom. She was overly emotional, anxious, panicked, and disheveled.

As the interview began, a jittery Dina repeatedly asks "Are we rolling? Are we rolling?"

Dina appears extremely uncomfortable throughout the interview. At one point, when Dr. Phil asks about Michael Lohan's alleged abuse, Dina abruptly asks to put a stop to the interview, claiming she doesn't want to be on camera.

She adds, "God, it's so quiet in here."

Dina later laughs nervously, and asks to go home. And this is all in the first fifteen minutes.

As we previously reported, Michael Lohan -- who participated in the interview -- says he's positive Dina was "wasted" during the interview ... which was taped at 10 AM.

Calls to Dina were not returned.

Dr. Phil forgets that he is a doctor first. He saw that this woman was vulnerable and not of sound mind, yet he continued to air the interaction despite her request to cut the camera. Yes, she is not his patient, but it is still very disappointing that he chose to exploit this woman. Money bought you Dr. Phil-you should be proud.

Certainly not standing up for Dina, but, Dr. Phil lost all credibility by bringing Michael Lohan in to pile on. If he's supposed to be the professional here, why would you allow a s***bag like Michael Lohan pass judgement on anyone much less an ex-wife to whom he owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in child support.

Dina Lohan's Dr. Phil Interview: Five Best Crazy Quotes

by Brett Malec Today 5:31 PM PDT

Believe it or not, asking "Are we rolling?" time after time is not the weirdest thing that came out of Dina Lohan's mouth during her beyond bizarre Dr. Phil interview today.

Lindsay Lohan's mother used much crazier and nonsensical language while sitting down with the daytime talk show host.

Although it was hard to pick just five, here's out list of the best—or should we say worst?—quotes from Dina's head-scratching TV appearance.

Lindsay takes on Amanda Bynes!

1. Tech Talk: When asked about a time when estranged ex husband Michael Lohan broke into her home, Dina explains to Phil that she didn't have time to call for help during the traumatic incident. "At that point, it happened so fast that it was, I couldn't," she mumbled while blotting her eyes with a tissue. "Cell phones weren't as inept as they are now so I didn't really have that." Phil later calls out Dina's bizarre choice of the word "inept" by saying, "that word doesn't fit in that sentence."

2. Little Shoes: One of the more bizarre phrases uttered by Dina is when she breaks after being asked a series of very personal and hard-hitting questions. "You're in your little, tie, your little shoes," she tells Phil while laughing. "I'm in my little tie and my little shoes?" a baffled Phil asks. "What the hell does that mean?" We never get an answer.

3. Fist Bumpin': After Phil tries to bring Dina down to a more serious level, she scoots closer to Phil to get intimate before losing focus and telling Phil, "So we're friends? Nice shoes. I like them by the way. Can we pound that? Oh, no. OK." Fist bump denied.

4. Middle Finger Mama: Having had his fill of the crazy, Dr. Phil begs "be honest with me" and calls Dina a "fraud" and "inauthentic." Dina can find only one way to answer—sticking up both middle fingers and flipping the bird to Phil and everyone else on set. She then smirks, "The truth will prevail," leaving Phil and everyone else scratching their heads.

Lindsay denies ties to Vanity Fair's Scientology story

5. Phil's Face: While Dina's impossible to understand quotes were definitely the highlight of the interview, Phil's priceless face almost stole the show. During most of the segment, the doctor sat staring emotionless at Dina with a deadpan face as if he'd given up trying to make sense of the answers the momager was giving him. And if we'd been there, we probably would have made the same face too

Phil, I don't call him dr he has never practiced, did just what he does. Showbiz. Dina ASKED to be on his show to "dislplay her acting talent". Instead, she showed that she can't act, can't lie worth a damn, and is the enabler she calls herself. Dina is an Eturd, too funny

Actually, she displays typical symptoms of substance withdrawal. It's feasible that for once she WASN'T on anything.

However, I can also think of several mental disorders that could account for her bizarre behavior.

oh my gosh I felt so much sympathy for Lindsey after watching her conceited, narcissistic and childish mother waste Dr. Phil's time.

Dina had zero interest in anything other than getting on TV. Dr. Phil asked great questions and she deflected almost all of them and made excuse after excuse for Lindsey-admitting she's an "enabler".

These people who are on here enabling and making excuses for Dina are either family/friends of hers, or have never seen her before in their life, and know nothing about the Lohans.

Dina has NO trouble going in front of a camera, talking to anyone, and talking about the "abuse" she's endured. In fact, she talks about it to anyone that will listen. These weren't nerves, or being uncomfortable, or not wanting to talk about a sensitive subject that's one thing I'm sure of!
