The Lohan family never ceases to amaze us!
There isn't enough money in the world to get Dina Lohan to shut up about her daughter going to prison. In fact, we'd wager she is going to make the rounds of her favorite media outlets at least a dozen times before she has had her fill of famewhoring.
Funny how Lindsay Lohan has no problem with this. She gets so furious when her daddy blabs on and on to the press. Then again, she might get a cut of Dina's profits. Money is love!
In Touch Weekly asked Dina some "tough" questions about Lindsanity's impending prison time. Dina gave her typical, eloquent answers, blaming everyone in the world for her daughter's misfortune, but herself…and her daughter. Some of the highlights:
How does Lindsay feel about going to jail?
When the decision came down, it was horrific. We hugged and cried a lot. But we’re optimists. Lindsay is sober and she’s fine. I don’t want to speak hypothetically [about jail] because she’s not going to be in that situation.
But the judge says she has to be in jail by July 20.
We’re taking it one day at a time. I don’t know what the outcome will be.
What have you said to your other children about Lindsay going to jail?
I don’t have to tell them anything. My son is 22 and graduated summa cum laude and he knows. My other son is 14 and he’s out on the lacrosse field getting ridiculed. Ali is in school with these girls being mean to her because of this situation. It’s not easy being us.
When people say, “What did you do for her, Dina?”, how do you respond?
She went to rehab before the court ordered her. When I put my daughter in rehab, I knew she needed it. In 2007 — not currently.
Is Lindsay 100 percent sober now?
Kids lie to their parents. Do you think she’s ever been dishonest to you about drinking or drugs?
I’m going to keep it general. I give my kids enough room — I don’t smother them. I think you have to let them make their own failures to make success. We’re all going to fail at one point at something.
As a smoker, how will Lindsay deal with not being able to smoke in jail?
When the time comes, she probably will have to get hypnotized, but again, we’re hoping it doesn’t come to that.
What is she the most scared of about jail?
She is claustrophobic, so she’s in fear of that.
What are you most scared of?
If Lindsay went to jail, I would fear for her life. Jail doesn’t help anyone no matter what problem you have — unless you’re a rapist or a murderer. This wasn’t a violent crime, but they’re saying you miss a DUI class and have to go to jail for three months — that’s absurd.
Are you worried about Lindsay overdosing now?
Every mother worries about their children every day, all the time.
What are Lindsay’s goals for the future?
Lindsay actually wants to open up her own rehab center here [in LA] and a couple across the country to help other kids and celebs so they don’t fall through the cracks in this town. She mentioned it to me a couple of days ago. She’s really growing up.
You know what's also really absurd: missing your daughter's sentencing hearing and then lying about being there for her when the verdict came down. (P.S.- You still haven't told us where you were last Tuesday, bb!)
Also absurd, not taking ownership of the fact that you effed up your kid by pushing them into the Hollywood life even though they obviously couldn't handle it. And then, denying that your kid has a serious drug problem so you don't look like a worse parent!
Totally and ridiculously absurd!
Also, it's not "if" she goes to jail - it's "when." We see no way of her getting out of it now! Spend more time with your kid than with reporters!
