Dina Lohan Pleads Guilty to DWI

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Drunk, Legal Issues,

Dina LohanLindsay Lohan's mother has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service.

Dina Lohan pled guilty in court in Long Island, New York on Tuesday morning to Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and speeding last September. Along with her community service, Dina must attend a mandatory drinking and driving program, a victim impact panel, and pay the necessary fines and fees.

The 51 year old is also expected to have her license revoked and an interlock device will be installed in her car, according to gossip website TMZ.com. The Lindsay star was initially arrested for driving at "a speed of 77 mph in a 55mph zone" and police then discovered her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Shortly afterwards, her lawyer Mark Heller attempted to blame the paparazzi for the incident. "It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina's arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles," he said.

Lindsay Lohan’s Father Seeking a Conservatorship

Michael LohanLindsay Lohan's father is seeking a conservatorship for her.

Michael Lohan is convinced his daughter has resumed abusing drink and drugs and after trying to stage an intervention on Friday he is trying to go through the courts to get a conservator appointed to look after Lindsay.

Michael claims his daughter is hanging out with the wrong people, including her mother, Dina Lohan. He is not requesting he be made conservator - an appointed person who has legal control over the subject - as he doesn't want to be in control of Lindsay's finances, so people can accuse him of going after her money. According to website TMZ, Michael wants a judge to decide who to appoint conservator, but he says he will not accept Dina.

Michael has told his lawyer the first thing he plans once there is a conservatorship in place is to convince them to send Lindsay to rehab. He claims every time Lindsay has been to rehab "she went in dirty and didn't come out clean."

Lindsay Lohan’s Father Accused of Staging Intervention for Selfish Reasons

Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan's father Michael is said to be using her to stay in the spotlight.

The Liz & Dick actress's mother Dina Lohan has claimed that her ex-husband only attempted to stage an intervention with their daughter - who reportedly failed to show up for work on the set of her new movie The Canyons this week - because he wants to be famous himself.

"This sole act by my ex was not an intervention nor was this extreme antic sanctioned by any member of Lindsay's family or her professional team of handlers. It's all about her father obsessed with making a name for himself in the news once again. It's sad and I hope he stops masquerading as her father in public and starts acting like one in private," Dina told TMZ.

Michael tried to stage an intervention at his daughter's home in Beverly Hills on Friday because he fears she has relapsed and is drinking and using drugs again. He claimed he was worried about the 26-year-old star following a string of troubling incidents recently including a huge fight with her mother Dina and said he did not involve Dina in the intervention because it would be "like the blind leading the blind."

Dina Lohan Offers Advice to Amanda Bynes’ Parents

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Child Stars,

Dina LohanDina Lohan has offered Amanda Bynes' parents advice on their out-of-control daughter.

Amanda's recent troubles - which included having her car impounded and being charged with driving on a suspended license - have been compared to the fall from grace of Dina's daughter Lindsay and she says Amanda's parents need to be there to help the 26-year-old former child star through her ongoing drama.

"You know, I'm a mother, and I feel that that's for her mother to speak about, and not me, because people have spoken for my child and myself, so I really feel that's for her parents to discuss and Amanda herself. [But] just be around... It's hard when your daughter's not, you know, over 18, and you want to let them go... and they want to, you know, feel like they're in control of themselves. So it's a very strategic place for a parent to be, but she'll be OK," she said on Entertainment Tonight.

Dina is no stranger to controversy and was recently accused of being drunk during an interview on TV show Dr Phil, something which she strongly disputes: "I was absolutely not under, intoxicated, or on any kind of medication. I was extremely upset."
