It's all too clear where Lindsay Lohan gets it from. During a new one-on-one interview with Dr. Phil McGraw, Lindsay's mother Dina acts like a giggly, petulant, sarcastic teenager -- leading her ex-husband Michael to ask McGraw, "Was she drinking before she did your interview?" Watch the preview clip below!
In the interview, airing Monday on Dr. Phil, the talk-show host confronts Lohan about accusations that she's the "worst mother ever." It could have been an opportunity for Dina to turn her image around, much as her daughter Lindsay has been trying to do in recent months. Instead, Dina laughs off her daughter's criminal record, makes fun of Dr. Phil's "little tie and little shoes," and pouts when he says something she doesn't like.
"You come on here and act phony, flitting around," an exasperated Dr. Phil says during the preview.
"Oh stop, I'm not flitting around," Dina replies. "I'm being scrutinized by you people."
We can see why Michael (who puts his two cents in via satellite) thinks she's drunk. But Dina is insisting that she was 100 percent sober, and says she'll be vindicated when the full interview airs.
"I don’t care what it looks like. I’m fine and I don’t care what anyone says," Mama Lohan told TMZ on Friday. "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."
Lindsay's dad, however, insists that something is amiss with his ex-wife.
"If Dina would stop with her lies and delusions of appearing on Dancing with the Stars...maybe she get some help and be a mother then get a real job," Michael told Radar Online on Sunday. "Just wait until the full interview. She even says she never made money from Lindsay and I look at Linds as the goose that laid the golden egg. While I NEVER took a cent!"
We don't know who's getting Lindsay's money, but we do know that both parents have done their share of mooching off Lindsay's fame. Right now it's Dina who looks bad -- but it wasn't so long ago that Michael was arrested twice in one week for allegedly abusing much-younger fiancee Kate Major (who is now pregnant with his child). Nobody in the Lohan family is blameless -- and if they want Lindsay to act like a mature adult, shouldn't they set a better example?
