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.

Dina Lohan's bizarre one-on-one interview with Dr. Phil McGraw airs on Monday and RadarOnline.com has obtained another preview clip in which she tries to defend Lindsay's behavior and even blames it on the city she lives in.

Dina agreed to the interview with Dr. Phil to "set the record straight, because there are so many stories out there about myself and my children," but it's evident in the footage that Dina doesn't really address any of the misconceptions head on and just spits out various excuses.

In the latest clip, Dr. Phil stars a scrolling list of Lindsay's trouble with the law beginning in 2005 to which Dina makes a few slurred comments and then complains that it's moving too quickly for her to read.

Hell(p), what are you trying to prove? You are deflecting and justifying just like she was. It is shallow and dishonest. Dina wanted this interview to set things straight, and that is exactly what she did. She proved to be a shallow out of control mess. Dr. Phil was not unkind, he just asked her to be genuine and she handed him a fist full of gooblie goop and flipped him and the audience off when things did not go her way. He gave her many opportunities to express herself however she chose, and she chose to look like an idiot. She even stated yesterday that she was happy with the interview and she thought it went well.

The problem is still Lindsey and mommy could never and still can't justify it's everyone elses fault or anything they blame for thier own screw ups. Problem is Lohan is always caught and now mommy caught dead to rights on national tv. Interview she wanted. That went well.

Actions speak louder than BS words. Again, even with

Dr. Phil asked her a very direct question. Why did she stay and have 3 more kids. Instead of giving an honest answer she ran with the deflection crap and it did not work out for her. She is a victim and a perpetrator. She must share some of the responsibility and then let it go and go forward with her life. She is not there yet and there are no shortcuts.

Some people are suggesting that Dr Phil gave her "a few drinks" backstage to make her act drunk and increase ratings COME ON! I know Dr Phil is a bit of a ratings ho but Dina had obviously had more than "a few drinks" - have you got any idea how much booze it takes to get a daily drinker like Dina this sloppy drunk, even a skinny one? We're talking more like a couple of bottles of bubbly, a shot or two plus a fistful of pills in her. For once I actually felt bad for Dr Phil here - he is trying to rationalize with someone who is completely wasted, and it is so awkward trying to talk to a drunk unless you're drunk too (then everything somehow makes sense, lol). Phil boy hardly knows where to look, I think he's worried she's about to throw up and crap her pants at the same time all over his couch.

She's not even a fun/funny/good crazy sort of drunk - just an exasperating, rude old ho.

I saw the show. And being a former addict she was in an altered.state, imo. I think.she may have taken a combo of alcohol and some benzos . It may have been an honest mistake, but I think not. From what I gathered it was she that wanted the interview to 'set things straight' but she ended up looking like a total train wreck. Denial is the first symptom. I never thought I would be saying this but poor, poor Lindsay. She has no mother to protect her and guide her.

Michael Lohan was probably an abusive arsehole but Dina should really know better than to do interviews if she doesn't like giving answers. Even Lindsay is looking more together than Dina is right now.
