Oprah and her producers are shooting a “docuseries” (read: reality show) for OWN follows Lindsay Lohan around as she starts her recovery process. Yeah, great idea, Oprah. How to better recover than to give an attention starved mess a camera crew following her at all times. And for $2 million. Smart.
From Daily News via TMZ:
The Oprah-helmed project featuring the embattled actress, 27, is set to be strictly about Lohan’s recovery and attempts to resuscitate her acting career…In fact, OWN producers are doing everything possible to keep the “Canyons” star’s parents — headline mainstays Michael and Dina Lohan — as far away from the cameras as possible.
According to the gossip site, an “executive decision” was made to ban them from the show. There won’t even be a mention of Dina Lohan’s recent DWI arrest, show sources say.
Good. Now just cancel the entire show and we’re set.

Dina Lohan got pulled over for drunk driving, but she must have taken a detour along the way into Denial City, because she’s pleading not guilty. Details of her arrest leaked and she pulled a total Reese Witherspoon even though she has nowhere near the amount of fame as Mrs. “I Am Allowed To Stand On American Ground.” Daily News explains how it went down:
“I’m not crazy,” Dina Lohan told a New York state trooper. “These questions are stupid.”
Dina’s damning words were in a criminal complaint released Tuesday after she pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated in a Long Island courtroom.
The Hollywood wild child’s mom admitted when she was arrested earlier this month that she’d been pounding the Pinot Grigio at a pal’s house. “It was two, well, maybe three glasses,” she said.
When they insisted Dina stand on one leg, she “stopped at five seconds and asked if she was done,” the report states.
Dina also complained the troopers had treated her too rough when they cuffed her, injuring a wrist and giving her a headache, but later retracted her claim. “I have no injuries,” she told an EMT. “I don’t need you guys anymore, I don’t want medical attention.”
But Dina, who notched a blood-alcohol level on a breathalyzer test that was more than double New York’s legal limit of 0.08 percent, bristled at giving a blood sample. “You’re not taking my blood,” she said, the papers state.
Dina, however, did make a point of telling a trooper that she had recently been interviewed by Oprah at her home, that she’d been on a television show earlier that night with ex-husband Michael Lohan, and “that she would be fifty years old” in a couple days.
Oh, Dina. Do not throw around Oprah’s name like y’all are friends. That is NOT going to help you out. Also I think we can all assume that Dina’s “three glasses” of wine = Lindsay’s “ten to fifteen times” she used cocaine.

Dina Lohan is Lindsay‘s mentor in fuckery, so it was no surprise when the latter Lohan was arrested for some serious DUI last week. Of course, she doesn’t think she’s done anything wrong, and she’s managed to brainwash a lawyer (read: paid him enough) into arguing that really, she’s been a great mother and that’s what’s most important. You know, who cares if you get behind the wheel of a car while drinking and maybe kill someone because your reaction time is lagging? You “raised” four kids, most of whom are totally fucked up!
Here’s what Mark Heller told Entertainment Tonight:
“Dina Lohan is a good person. Her life has been dedicated to her four children. She has worked hard her entire life and she has been a ‘Parent Trapped’ with the entire world watching her in a fishbowl with murky water due to no fault of her own. She appreciates the grave seriousness of this matter and is mindful that the Nassau County District Attorney considers these types of cases a top priority. But as an attorney with 45 years of experience, I am confident that as a first time offender, with absolutely no prior record, that the Judicial System will treat Dina Lohan with even-handed fairness.”
Fairness? When has the judicial system ever been fair towards the Lohans? If shit was fair, Lindsay would be behind bars for the next 3-4 years, at the very least. Instead, she went to “rehab” and basically gets away with everything she does. Let’s revoke Dina’s license.

Dina Lohan was arrested for drunk driving. Wow, I don’t think anyone saw this coming. I saw a tweet that was something like, “A celebrity’s parent got arrested” and I just knew. Dina was super drunk — twice the legal limit. Here’s more from TMZ:
Lindsay Lohan’s 50-year-old mother was pulled over on the Northern State Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm Thursday night … after she was allegedly going 77mph in a 55 in her white BMW.
During the stop, cops say she appeared intoxicated — and tested her blood alcohol level, which registered at .20 — more than twice the legal limit of .08.
According to officials, “Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest” … but when medical personnel responded to the scene and determined she was fine, Dina “recanted her claim.”
Lohan was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding.
She was pulled over in Long Island, Billy Joel‘s favorite place and home to his motorcycle crash.
Daughter Lindsay is famously recovering from her alcohol addiction and apparently didn’t know her mom was arrested until she found out this morning, like the rest of us. Man, I don’t think Lindsay’s taken a mugshot that bad (above). Of course there’s so many to choose from.
Bet Dina thinks this is her big chance to shop her sad story on talk shows everywhere. Hope she doesn’t get the opportunity.

Dina Lohan, mother of the year (every year), says that her daughter Lindsay will move back home to New York after completing rehab. Dina says a lot of things, so who knows if any of this is based on reality. I’m not sure if it’s a good idea for Lohan to live with Dina but if the alternative is living alone or with her bad news friends…I don’t know, man. Dina assured NY Daily News that,
She’s not going to live in Los Angeles. She will definitely start back home with all of us.
And she’s also going to get a re-do for her birthday, considering that she spent it in rehab, which is sad on so many levels.
It was a very calm, low-key birthday. We couldn’t visit because it fell during the week, but we mailed her cards and gifts. We’re going to work it out to all go visit her again, and then we’re planning the pool party.
POOL PARTY!!! Actually, a pool party sounds f-cking fantastic right about now. Dina is also confident that Lindsay will be clean from now on, for real, saying,
It’s been a long road, and she’s going to be fine.
Okay. Last I checked though, New York was full of paparazzi, and I thought Lindsay was trying to avoid those.

Lindsay Lohan’s parents have to be competing in some sort of “worst parent ever” contest. Mother Dina is working on a memoir that reveals how awful her husband, Michael Lohan/Lindsay’s father is. And Michael is writing a memoir about how awful Dina is. And Lindsay is stuck in the middle getting Botox.
Though it seemed like Dina told all when she appeared in a, shall we say, unfocused state on Dr. Phil’s show in September of 2012, she apparently has more to tell. She’s accused her ex husband of physical, mental and sexual abuse. Michael is saying that Dina is lying, and he’ll be sure to tell us all about it in his book tentatively titled, I Am Not Daddy Dearest…If I Can Turn It All Around, So Can You!. Brought to you by The Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too. Seriously though, that really is the title of the book. I can only assume Dina’s will be titled Life Struggles with Dina “I’m Not A Regular Mom I’m A Cool Mom” Lohan.
This has to be embarrassing for Lindsay, but then again, if Lindsay isn’t going to do any work on paying off her insane debts, somebody’s got to make money somehow. Ha, just kidding, these books aren’t going to sell.
Do you think either book is going to be popular? Is there anything they could say that we don’t know already? And how do you feel about Lindsay stuck in all of this?
