After an interview like that, we're pretty sure ANYONE would be scrambling to justify what just happened!
Apparently Dina Lohan's course of action, according to a close source, is to call Dr. Phil unprofessional — and to want to try again, with Dr. Drew Pinsky!
The source, Danish celebrity promoter Claus Hjelmbak, said this:
"Dina is a very loving mother to her four children and a great friend. I feel that she was treated very unprofessionally by Dr. Phil and that he bullied her during the interview. She agreed to do the interview with Dr. Phil because she wanted to talk about some very difficult things she had been through in her life and thought she would be doing so in a safe and therapeutic environment. He was mean to her thoughout and I don't think she was under the influence of any substances or alcohol at the time. I know Dina very well and I could tell that she was just extremely nervous."
The interview was simply bizarre (above) — she tried to get out of answering tough questions, cried uncontrollably, and even flipped Dr. Phil the bird.
Still, it sounds like she isn't done doing big interviews like this.
Her friend continued:
"I'm sure that Dr. Drew would treat Dina with compassion and be respectful towards her, unlike Dr. Phil who absolutely blindsided her with his aggressive demeanor. Dr. Phil just butchered her and he is extremely phony. Dina has a lot to say, but clearly, she never should have done Dr. Phil's show. Dr. Drew would be the ideal choice for Dina's next interview and I know that she wants to do his show on HLN."
Dina and Dr. Drew go back quite a ways, actually, having talked LiLo's problems with him before, and the Doc himself openly expressing concerns and worries for Lindsay as well!
So we think he'd be up for it!
Plus, wherever she goes… after the last performance, you bet we'll be watching!
We wish things were different for the Lohans!
