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.

The spin begins....

HuffPost Celebrity ‏@HuffPostCeleb
Was Dina Lohan portrayed unfairly on "Dr. Phil"?

A Huff reply:
“Dina taped this interview months ago and wasn’t prepared for the questions she was asked. She doesn’t have a publicist or a manager to practice with or give her answers; she was doing this to be honest,”

^^^Since when do you need a publicist in order to answer a question truthfully?

Andy I completely agree with the statement about when Lohan's get paid, the figure highly inflated. $50K for Dina, subtract $49,500. Please make me jealous Dina and Lindsay about how much money you are not making.

WOW...Now we know why Lyndsey is so screwed up and why her MOM is her best friend!!!!!!!!! She never had a chance being raised by this fool and now they are two peas in a pod..... ENABLER MOM OF THE YEAR. THEY BOTH NEED TO GO BACK TO RE-HAB. Dr. Phil was able to unmask this poor excuse of a mother.

My opinion of this video is that she is just simply hurting. Unless there is more video or I've seen the whole interview I'd just say she's nervous and hurt.

Lillian Glass, who analyzes body language, has an interesting post about Dina Lohan on Dr. Phil dated today, 9/18/12. Google "Lillian Glass" plus "Dina Lohan". The title is "Dina Lohan flirts with D. Phil using manipulative body language." She doesn't address the question of whether Dina is wasted or not, but thinks Dina was trying to control the interview with the flirting and the tv tech talk about cameras etc. Her opinion about Dina's responses to questions about physical abuse from Michael was basically liar, liar, pants on fire...Well, Glass was more diplomatic, pointing out many signs of deception. The crying was definitely a fake. Glass points out that nobody sheds tears from just one eye...and Dina was using the tissue just as a prop. Usually Glass isn't keen on Michael and makes a specialty out of how to deal with "toxic men" -- but she ends up by saying there may be a lot of truth to what he's been saying all along about Dina. I wonder if he may not have done the things she claims.
In his own segment, Michael said the only time he hit Dina was when she threw something heavy at him when he came home late (and drunk...) about two months after they were married. According to Glass, Dina was lying when she said he started the abuse on their honeymoon, throwing a bible (!) at her. She might be lying about a lot of other things she's claimed, including in court. I remember Lindsay said she hadn't personally witnessed such abuse. Is it all just stories spun by Dina? We know Michael is quite capable of physical violence under the influence, but Dina's habit of lying puts it all in the "maybe not" category except when other reliable witnesses can back it up. I can imagine a lot of verbal violence between both of them, though. My question is if they might actually have been equally responsible for that -- toxic husband/father vs. toxic wife/mother, battling it out while drunk and/or drugged.
So I wonder if Dina's behavior on Dr. Phil was fueled as much by pills as we've been assuming. She might always have a baseline drug/alcohol level as I suspect Lindsay does, but she may simply have been trying to put on a deceptive act and met her match in Dr. Phil. I also read elsewhere that although Dr. Phil doesn't directly pay for interviews, there are other forms of compensation (gifts, for instance) in addition to travel and lodging. If he showed any pictures provided by Dina, I imagine they paid well for those since that seems to be standard practice for other shows (as a way to pay without directly paying). But you get the goodies only if you 1) complete the interview (no walking out, hence her asking if she could go home now) and 2) sign a waiver promising not to sue if you feel abused by Dr. Phil (excellent precaution with Dina).
