Truth be told, I miss Lindsay. I’m thrilled for her
(hopefully) newfound sobriety. And I’m hopeful she’s finally gotten the good
sense to stay out of the nightclubs. And
I’m thinking she may finally hire a driver since driving without incident
doesn’t seem to be her strong suit. But I do miss her antics. If nothing else, it was always entertaining
to open up a magazine and say, “What did Lilo do?”
And then along comes Lindsay’s mom, Dina Lohan, to pick up
It’s possible Dina was just trying to represent the Lohan
family name which is often synonymous with “catastrophe.” But after a routine traffic stop ended in
Dina being arrested and charged with driving under the influence (her blood
alcohol level was over twice the legal limit), Dina’s now the latest Lohan to
be in trouble with the law.
I must say, I’m feeling a bit more compassionate to Lilo these days.
Which has me, for the first time, feeling pretty sorry for
Over the years, I’ve always thought of Lindsay Lohan as an
out of control party girl who squandered what could have been a successful acting
career. She’s quick to blame others and
doesn’t seem to learn from her own mistakes. But I must say, I’m feeling a bit more compassionate to Lilo these days.
Her dad, famous-person-for-no-good-reason, Michael Lohan is
far more likely to end up on “The Most Wanted” list than “The Top 10 Role Models.” And now, her mom has joined the
club. Sure, everyone can make mistakes and
good people make bad choices. But it
seems like the Lohans do nothing but make bad choices. So how can they expect their children to do
Dina Lohan’s alcohol abuse has long since been rumored. But her recent DUI proves she’s got a real
problem. It seems ironic that while her
daughter is struggling to stay sober, Dina’s out drinking and driving. It’s
hard to expect your child to stay on the wagon, when you’re the one drunk
As a mother, I’m keenly aware that I’m a role model. Even
grown children model their parents’ behavior. It’s unfortunate when a kid’s role model is acting worse than they are. If Lindsay’s serious about staying
sober, she’s going to have to distance herself from her mom and be her own role
model. Or, Dina Lohan’s going to have
remember she’s the mom and not the child, and stop acting like one.
