Keep in mind, Dina Lohan is the woman who raised Lindsay Lohan — and has convinced herself that both she and her daughter are perfect in every way — and the same woman who once tried to run the long con on Carvel over a freakin’ Cookiepuss. So of course when she sat down with Dr. Phil McGraw (the episode airs 9/17), the end-point for all white trash messes, Dina was a total white trash mess:
Except now she’s claiming that she wasn’t actually drunk on the show, even though you can literally smell the gin breath through your screen. Via TMZ …
But Dina is adamant she was sober … telling TMZ, “I don’t care what it looks like. I’m fine and I don’t care what anyone says.” She continues, “All people saw was two minutes edited of an hour long interview. Of course they cut it to make it interesting. That’s their job . I don’t blame them for doing that. Some of the comments were taken out of context but I’m fine. I’m fine.”
If this is what “fine” looks like to Dina, then that would probably explain why she hasn’t lured Lindsay into rehab with a trail of shot glasses yet. Also, I almost sort of believe that Dina wasn’t drunk, just because at this point, I’m convinced that she’s either drunk every second of the day, or this is just how she acts regularly. It’s a fifty-fifty shot, really. Someone get her to blow into a breathalyzer and see if the poor machine dies of alcohol poisoning.
