Dina Lohan

Fidgety, Sweaty, Mumbling

During Dr. Phil Interview

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

091712_lohan_dr_phil_launch
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.

94% agree that she was wasted. LOL!

Once again this only proves what an enabling POS she is...all lies, dodging all of Dr. Phils questions. Why did she even bother to go on his show?

seems like she really didn't want to talk so much about the things he was asking her and to make it worse they kept all the stuff in that make her look crazy on camera but really is a women who really didn't want to think or have flashbacks about the things she went through. everyone will say shes on booze and pills when its really the people working for phil keeping all that stuff in to make it seem she's crazy in the head. she ask simple questions on where the cameras were while filming so she knows where to turn for them to shoot and he makes it look as if she's crazy for asking that. its all dr. phil's side making it seem like shes on booze bc they didn't edit it like normal. its all a head play they played on her and it work, ratings go up and she still look at as crazy drunk.

I agree, she was definitely on something. And I hope the rumors are not true, that Phil paid her $50K for that mess of an interview. She apparently asked for an interview but acted like she was forced to do it. And she claims to be 'in the business' but couldn't tell that they were 'rolling'! How does she figure she's 'in the business' when she's just a parent of someone who 'was' in the business? Yeah, Dina, this interview really cleared up a lot of misconceptions in the media about you. You are most definitely crazy and should not have custody or any influence whatsoever of any children! You certainly accomplished that with this interview. Hopefully CPS was watching.

Dina:Oh..if Lindsay was in NY, 7 of those things on that list wouldn't be there.

Phil: But there is still 17 more things that would be. LOL!

IMHO she has a stress disorder and is self-medicating. To *me* it looked like a few pills, a couple of shots and full own circular panic attacks.

Question: why was she ever doing an interview w Dr Phil in the first place? She had to have known that she was going to get killed on her parenting. I don't follow her at all. Is she trying to promote something right now? All around bonkersville.

Saw the ads, but wanted to watch the show in it's entirety to form my own opinion. She was either drunk or on meds. She was borderline delusional. Very telling & sad. Fruit doesn't fall far from the tree!

I think she is far from stone, I have PTSD from the things pretty much the same things she was talking about from a ex and I acted like that when I would talk about them. I could only imagine after many years of dealing with that and then bringing that up again for the world to see, I would act just like her.

Clips from the show. Today was the first time Douche Bag daddy was honest about his other daughter. He owes 35k in child support to her. Will only do a DNA test if its on a talk show so he can make money. His daughter is a cute kid, and she knows her dad is a aszhole. She even told Milo, now that I know who you are I want no part of you. Just want you to man up and admit you're my father. Heres some of the clips. This Dr. Phil is so not over.
