Dina Lohan sat down with Matt Lauer this morning, and I don’t know if you want to check outside to see if Jesus is riding a pale horse and swinging a flaming sword, but she just admitted that Lindsay Lohan is an addict. The Scoop reports:
“Yes,” she is comfortable admitting Lindsay is an addict, Dina told Lauer. And the reason she’d been unwilling to admit as much before was because Lindsay had to admit it first. “As a mother it wasn’t for me to come and tell the world about her problem … I wasn’t in denial. It was for her to come to her evolution. As a mother we protect. Now I’m happy and relieved myself.” Dina said that Lindsay, who is being treated at California’s Betty Ford rehab facility, is “happy, relaxed.” “She’s just a different person. She’s been in a couple facilities, but this one to me has really changed her.” Dina also said that Lindsay, too, has a greater understanding of her addiction issues. “Yes. This teaches you that you are (an addict). Being so young, the admitting of that, can only help her sobriety in the future.” And as for that future, what will it hold? Dina said that Lindsay wants to get back into film, but things will be taken “one day at a time. “I don’t have a crystal ball,” Dina said. “I pray hard. She wants to start her own (rehab) facilities, help other children. She’s so public that I think we can only be positive and look to the future to help other families.”
Please hold me down and stone me for saying this, but what Dina says kinda make sense. And this is the first time in any recorded interview where she didn’t immediately blame someone else for Lindsay’s problems. So either she was coached by Rahm Emanuel on what to say, or she really believes and means this. Which sucks for me because I really need Lindsay Lohan naked and doing blow. What, you think this site gets traffic all by itself without having to do any work? This isn’t gogle.com, you know.
