When someone is trying to rehabilitate themselves and stay focused on their recovery, the last thing they need is the high drama of their parent blabbing all over the news media. This back and forth between Dina and Michael and BOTH of their latest TOXIC shenanigans can destroy everything Lindsay Lohan is doing on Rehab at Betty Ford.
First, Dina allegedly tries to sneak a photo crew in to Betty Ford to capitalize off of Lindsay’s rehab. Now she is allegedly trying to shop the first interview when Lindsay gets out of rehab. To me this is revolting! This is a sure-fire formula for Lindsay not healing and not getting on with her life. At this point in her rehab process Lindsay has NOTHING to say in any interview.
She has only been in rehab for a few weeks and needs the solitude and focus to deal with her issues and her demons. Two of those demons are her TOXIC parents and what they have done to her. She has already allegedly mentioned her father in her rehab sessions(which by the wasy should never have been leaked to anyone). But she has yet to address her mother as far as we know.
I think that her mother is not acting motherly here. If she was she would never allow her daughter to any interviews unless her daughter was well into her recovery.
This leads me to question whether Dina actually wants Lindsay to be in recovery. As a train wreck Dina can go on camera and go into her denial about Lindsay as she has done repeatedly. She can continue to say how Lindsay just falls down a lot and how there is nothing wrong with her. She can continue to blame the media and world for Lindsay’s condition.
One of the reasons Dina is possibly fearful of Lindsay’s recovery is that she may end up losing her cash cow after Lindsay is sober enough to see through the veil of her substance abuse. Only then will Lindsay see how Toxic her mother has been to her and how she has ridden on her coat tails. Going clubbing and partying with Lindsay was clearly riding on Lindsay’s coat tails. It was inappropriate to say the least.
If Lindsay recovers, she will no doubt have the mental and emotional wherewithal to fire her manager mother and get a legitimate manager who has her best interest at heart. She needs someone who can really get her re-focused as an actress and singer. Lindsay has wasted the best years of her life and really needs someone who knows what they are doing to jump-start her career in the right direction.
No matter how talented an actress is , like it or not, there is an expiration date as far as far as being a lead actress goes. So Lindsay needs to keep this in mind as she focuses on her rehab and staying on course.
NOW ABOUT TOXIC MICHAEL
Michael Lohan is one of the most Toxic Men out there in my view. Anyone who can sell his friends out by taping their conversations and take nude photos of an ex fiancé and sell them is despicable. Lindsay does NOT want to have anything to do with her father and who can blame her?
I think that this is the best thing she has ever done. No one has poisoned Lindsay’s mind against Michael. Instead, Michael has poisoned the well himself by yapping about Lindsay’s every move.
The latest is thatut was reported that he wants to go off the wagon and feign a drunken state and show up on the steps of Betty Ford. He wants to enter into Rehab for the sole purpose of seeing Lindsay and joining her in rehab. He said he will stop at nothing to see Lindsay.
I am sure that he will stop at nothing. If he succeeds and sees Lindsay when she is not ready to see him or she refuses to see him, the results can be disastrous.
I don’t even want to imagine how disastrous, but rest assured, Lindsay who has been known to act out self destructively in the past, could do it again, Only this time she may possibly do something that would end her life forever. And yes, Michael would be the catalyst for that.
She obviously has so much rage towards Michael for a number of reasons and rightfully so. If she is tormented and pushed by Michael during these delicate times , I will hold Michael completely responsible for whatever disastrous event happens to her.
If Michael is so concerned about Lindsay’s wellness, he needs to back off and butt out. He needs to stop the back and forth with Dina in the media. This is only hurting Lindsay. If there was no Lindsay in the picture, no one would care about Dina or Michael.
But unfortunately, Michael’s trash talking and butting out will never happen. By the look of things, in my view Michael seems to love himself and the press a lot more than he loves his daughter .
My book TOXIC MEN comes out next month from Adams Media and speaks about men like Michael Lohan and what can be done to deal with and heal from them. No doubt this book could definitely help Lindsay deal with Michael. If you would ike to order a copy go to http://www.amazon.com/Toxic-Men-Ways-Identify-Miserable/dp/144050007X\
Soon Judge Eldon Fox will decide Lindsay’s fate.
Will he sentence her to 60 full days in jail for violating her probation? Will he let her continue on with her rehab at Betty Ford? Will he find her another facility? Will he sentence her to 60 days and then to a year of rehab and then to a halfway house? Wouldn’t it be great if he issued a gag order pertaining to Lindsay that NEITHER parent could comment on her in any way? Maybe then she could finally heal in peace .http://www.drlillianglass.com
