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.

Allegations are not proof.
"The allegations are contained in divorce papers that"

AAAHHHHHHHH Dr. Phil... you sneaky sneaky psychologist. I'm betting he "took" and I don't mean out for coffee, Dina backstage. Vulnerable woman are simply the best! "It's ok... shh shhh shhh it's ok."

See stuff like this they don't speed dial TMZ. Of course calls were not returned.

When Lohan got away with trying to steal from her friend (the man simply didn't want his business known) and blamed Suge Knights son, Lohan tweets her BS.

Those are Dina's allegations and she talks about that stuff just fine in past interviews. I don't think she was wasted. I think she could not handle that this interview called her out on being fake. Her lies imploded on her. She said 2 days ago that she thought this interview went well.
She did not have an emotional meltdown, she just could not be honest and she blew it.

Glad you don't think she was wasted. She was not wasted in this interview. She started having panics when she found out Milo was going to be on. Maybe in the other interviews that she did she was on medication that helped her do the interview. Maybe in the other interviews she felt safe because she knew Milo would not be on. In the Dr. Phil interview today she appeared to have been the victim of severe abuse. I find it weird that TMZ does not talk about all of Milo's arrest warrants.

Dina Lohan celebrates boozy 50th birthday party with daughter Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay partied like it was her birthday on Saturday — because it was her mother’s.
According to the manager of Mio Posto in Hicksville, L.I., the 26-year-old starlet had “double vodka and club soda” during Dina Lohan’s 12-person 50th-birthday dinner.
The small but rowdy celebration comes on the heels of the mother of four being accused of being inebriated during a tease for an interview with Dr. Phil.
A source says the elder Lohan had wanted to spend her milestone birthday with “just family,” and while her five-time rehabbed daughter and son Michael were present (we’re told 18-year-old Ali is "modeling" in Korea), so were nine friends, mostly female. The group shared family-style platters of rice balls, meatball marinara, fried calamari, baked lamb, pasta dishes, stuffed chicken, veal chops, shrimp a la crisp (a favorite of both Li-Lo and the birthday girl) and dessert platters, on tables set with roses and surrounded by balloons.
“She drank mixed drinks,” the manager tells us of Dina Lohan. “She had….. a few.”
An insider tells us LiLo’s mom considered having a grander celebration in New York City originally, but things “didn’t pan out.”

Hope you don't mind, Grandma...but this needs to be FRONT AND CENTER...not hidden in a reply:


No HELL(p). I do not agree with you at all. Dina filmed this interview quite some time ago. Milo's portion was just filmed and he was in Florida and not anywhere near Dina.
I did not see someone who is a victim of severe abuse. I saw a woman who is used to controlling interviews and when Dr. Phil called her out on her denial and lack of honesty she tried to smooth her way through and it did not work. Dina hides behind the statement that the truth shall prevail, but she provided no truth. Dr. Phil was not unkind to her. He made statements and let her go with it. Rather than get honest she just became an incoherent mess. Too bad she cannot blame this on drugs and alcohol, and something tells me in the near future that she will try to play that card. She effed up, big time.

Something that I found interesting that no one seems to have brought up was when Dr. Phil asked Dina if Lindsay was supporting her and the family, and Dina's response was Milo did not pay child support and where was the justice in that.
I guess that was a yes.

Dina Lohan why'd you lie?
Just tell the truth, you didn't try.
You slurred your words and made no sence,
Your body language was all tense.
The Dr knew that you'd drank booze,
When you picked on his small shoes.
You winked at Phil and flirted too,
But he was just turned off by you.
You used your daughter for the fame,
And now she'll never be the same.
Your actions came across real loud
She's just like you, now aren't you proud,
You shouldn't have gone on that show,
We saw it all, now we all know.
Your not a good mother, you have no soul,
It's time you crawl back in your hole.
Dr Phil's work is now done.
Goodby Dina, it's been fun.

Dina had a lot riding on this interview. She is trying desperately to sell herself in a reality show where she is a mentor to parents and kids that want to break into show business. She wanted everybody to see the real her? Well, sorry Dina, but you did a great job of showing us the real you, and hopefully NO ONE will trust themselves or their children to you, nor any channel will waste their time carrying your show.

@ grandma...Lohans already had their "Living Lohan" that bombed years ago. Don't even think 3 episodes aired if any.

You's gonna be ambien (Zolpidem) . Her eyes don't have the alcohol look, but she's comes across drunk - ambien does that. Her mannerisms also as I have seen too many high on ambien. This is why she is claiming she did nothing, because I bet she being clintonesque in semantics and it's a prescribed thing so like the politicians and movies stars taking it in the daytime, but claiming they took it to late in the morning, when they took it to feel drunk - and ambien is a 6 pack in apill!

Amanda Bynes went shopping today in West Hollywood ... and locked herself in a dressing room for nearly 2 hours.

Amanda was shopping at Kin (above) -- a hip boutique. Amanda took some clothes inside the fitting room and stayed for 1 hr. 45 min.

The clerks heard a banging sound coming from inside the dressing room every 10 minutes or so. One clerk made a distress call to another employee, saying he was concerned about Bynes being hold up for so long. The employee drove to the store to help, to no avail. Amanda wouldn't come out, telling them, "I need more time."

A sex tape (that derriére!) put socialite Kim Kardashian in the spotlight, but it was the self-described princess' savvy that parlayed her stint in pornography into her own E! reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The daughter of O.J. Simpson defense attorney, the late Robert Kardashian, L.A.-bred Kardashian first made her mark in Hollywood as stylist to stars like Brandy and Lindsay Lohan and now owns the Calabasas, Calif. boutique, Dash, with her sisters Kourtney and Khloé.

The bodacious babe, who dated New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush for years, eventually found love again with NBA player Kris Humphries. Kardashian was the epitome of a princess bride at her fairy tale wedding to Humphries in August 2011 – only to file for divorce 72 days later.

Olympic gold medalist Shaun White was arrested several hours ago after allegedly getting wasted at a hotel and badly injuring himself ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources tell TMZ ... White was in a Nashville hotel when he allegedly trashed his room in a stupor. When he was confronted by hotel staff, Shaun allegedly pulled several fire alarms and then ran fast ... so fast he fell and split his head open.

Law enforcement tells us Shaun was arrested for public intoxication and vandalism, but was taken to a hospital for treatment first. Once he's treated he'll be taken to jail.

Shaun's rep could not be reached for comment.

Dina Lohan’s shocking interview with Dr. Phil McGraw was such a disaster that instead of answering the host’s questions she simply flipped him the bird when she didn’t like the questions and has video of her inappropriate actions.

“Can I ask you some questions, and you answer them, not in television speak but just answer them honestly?” Dr. Phil asks of Lindsay Lohan’s mother, who bizarrely is fidgeting and giggling through the interview.

Dr. Phil hits a brick wall when trying to get Dina to suitably answer a query.

“You spent more time talking about cameras, are we rolling…that’s my business...we’re not here about my business, we’re here about your life." He slams Dina’s actions and that’s when she flips him off.
