Lindsay Lohan's mother, Dina, wants to prove that the Lohans are just a normal family. So she's doing what any normal mother would do: pitching a reality show. Dina, 47, tells the New York Post that she's in talks with a major network and has "already started filming." The premise of the show: "the cameras follow us in our daily lives and as we promote our businesses." By "us," she means herself, and daughters Lindsay and Ali. And by "our businesses," she means... um... those eco-friendly toothbrushes she's been peddling? Or perhaps she's referring to younger daughter Ali Lohan's all-but-nonexistent music career, as featured in Dina's prior attempt at a reality show, Living Lohan. But seeing as neither of those career paths is actually panning out, she's probably talking about daughter Lindsay's acting career. And that's just what Lindsay -- whose career is already in jeopardy -- doesn't need.
By now, we're used to Dina's attempts to steal the spotlight from Lindsay. But we don't understand how she can possibly think a reality show would be good for her kids. "I want to prove that we are a good, hardworking family and we don't have the crazy lives that some people claim we do," Dina tells the Post. Except the Lohans do have crazy lives. Look up "crazy lives" in the dictionary and you may well see a picture of Dina and Lindsay clubbing with the Jersey Shore cast while a judge puts out a warrant for Lindsay's arrest and father Michael holds a press conference about Lindsay's drug problems. The Lohans don't need a reality show. They are a reality show. And as while Dina would like that show to be Keeping Up with the Kardashians, it's more like one of those Discovery Channel shows where lots of things explode.
Here's the bottom line: if Lindsay really wants to get her damaged life back on track, it would help if her mother would stop selling it to the highest bidder.
