When it comes to her very famous daughter Lindsay Lohan, Dina is always equipped with excuses.
Her daughter got a DUI before she was legally allowed to drink and walked into a police station with cocaine in her pocket after allegedly kidnapping a couple of people. The judge sentenced her to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab, but according to Dina, her daughter didn't deserve a single day of that and she blames the judge for Lindsay's problem. Wake up woman!
In a new interview with the Today Show, an argumentative Dina placed blame on the judge and insists there's absolutely nothing wrong with her daughter's behavior.
"I'm not condoning drinking and driving, but she's still paying the price for what she did in 2007," said an often-agitated Dina, referring to Lindsay's two DUI cases from three years ago. As for Lindsay, "She's changed," says her mother. "She's grown up considerably."
When asked how or what brought upon this big "change," Dina told Today's Matt Lauer, "Age. Living life. Knowing life. Growing up."
Lindsay ended up pissing off the judge when she skipped a court hearing to party in Cannes, but of course Dina had an excuse for that too. "She was in [jail] for just missing a couple of classes and was working at the time."
In addition, Dina noted, by Lindsay's being behind bars, "She missed driving classes." The actress also came into personal contact with murderers, said her mother, adding, "She made friends with them."
It's like Dina has a journal of excuses when it comes to Lindsay. She refuses to accept the fact that Lindsay has a serious substance abuse problem and needs professional help. No wonder Lindsay could never get it together, her enabling mother was always there to assure her there's nothing wrong with her behavior!
