Dina Lohan almost arrested at ice cream outlet for using Ali’s lifetime card

Ultimate stage mom Dina Lohan was at a Carvel ice cream outlet to pick up a cake for her son’s birthday when the cops were called and a police helicopter (allegedly) began circling overhead. For those of you not from the Tristate area, Carvel is an awesome chain known for its delicious ice cream and fabulous ice cream cakes, most notably Fudgie The Whale. (My mom grew up on Long Island and we always get Carvel when we visit. Even the fat free ice cream is so tasty.) It all went down like this: Dina tried to get the cake for free by proffering a black “free ice cream for life” card that was in her daughter Ali’s name. The clerk confiscated it and called the cops when Dina couldn’t produce ID to show that she was Ali Lohan. In retelling this story, Dina conveniently forgets to recount the enormous fit you know she threw when she was told she would either have to pay for the cake or leave without it.

The best part of this story is when Dina whines that life is so unfair for her family.

Lindsay Lohan’s mom was out and about in East Meadow, New York, on Wednesday when she stopped by a Carvel Ice Cream store, to buy a cake for her youngest son Cody’s 14th birthday celebrations.

But that’s when things went like a banana split, Dina said.

While at the counter, the high-profile mom said she produced a special Carvel promotional ‘Black’ card — akin to a Black American Express Card in the ice-cream stakes.

It’s then the store employee went ballistic, according to Dina, who dished the scoop to RadarOnline.com.

“The shop assistant said, ‘Do you have I.D.?’” Dina said.

“Next minute he he grabbed my arm and took my card and held it hostage and wouldn’t give me the cake!

“This guy was crazy!”

The Carvel ‘Black’ card is the ultimate status symbol of ice-cream.

Dina explained she and all the Lohans have ‘Black’ cards, gifting them free ice cream for 75 years.

However, her mistake was: she picked up 16-year-old daughter Ali’s card.

“I didn’t think it be a problem,” Dina said.

“I couldn’t believe this guy… it’s a family card, it just didn’t have my name on it.

“Next minute, four cop cars showed up, there’s a police helicopter over head and this guy makes it seem to the cops that I’m trying to use a stolen credit card — and for what? Over a free ice cream?!”

A humiliated Dina said she explained the situation to the cops.

But when the men in black asked the Carvel employee to return Dina’s card, he wouldn’t budge.

“He wouldn’t give it back… not even to the cops!” Dina joked.

“Finally he gave up and gave me my card back. But he told me, ‘You can have the card, but you can’t have the cake!’

“It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”

It would seem that the big loser in the fiasco was the birthday boy, who was denied his favorite ice cream cake.

Now Dina is going to make Carvel pay.

“Just wait until Lindsay and Ali hear about this,” she said.

“When Ali gets back, I’m going to bring her in everyday to this store — and you can print that!”

[From Radar Online]

So the Lohans “get treated so much worse than regular people.” Dina is so narcissistic, she’s forgetting the fact that her entire family gets free ice cream for life. I hope that Carvel revokes their black card privileges once Dina shows up there a few days in a row to pester the guy for not giving her a free cake. Just like all the clubs and events denying Lindsay entrance, Carvel will ultimately get more publicity for turning away the Lohans rather than continuing to feed their delusions of grandeur.

    So she’s not “regular people” then???
    What exactly is she so?
    This woman is such a user. She uses her children to get all kinds of perks in life…she makes me sick.

  2. poopie says:

    WOWOWOW ! Those HOHANS are actually realllllyy special if they have the BLACK ICE CREAM CARD ! Give me a BREAK ! an ice cream card for 75 yrs of ice cream????? Rod Serling : where ARE you?

  3. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Is it April 1st??!!

  4. Dorothy says:

    Too funny!!!

    I feel so bad for the normal son in college (i think it is Ithaca? beautiful school) and this 14 year old. At least the older brother is out of the house the 14 year old doesn’t have a chance.

  5. Johnthing says:

    Don’t people know who she is!?!

  6. Miss says:

    This woman is delusional. Yeah, we’ll all wait with baited breath until Ali & Lindsay find out.

  7. Lady Nightshade says:

    There are so many things wrong with this story, I don’t know where to start:

    They are not like ‘regular people’ and it’s soooo hard for them to just get free ice cream

    Really, there was a police helicopter?

    After all that, she wouldn’t just pay the 20 bucks to buy her son’s cake…so tacky

    This is all so embarrassing for her

  8. Paul Stanley says:

    I’m glad I’m “regular people”. I wouldn’t want to be lumped in to the same category as the Lohans. They are the most disgraceful people I have ever read about, well maybe not the most. First there is Jeffery Dahmer then second the Lohans.

  9. The Truth Fairy says:

    “It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”

    Yeah, the Lohans love to play the victim card. Everyone is out to get them. Crazy.

  10. Paul Stanley says:

    Oh I forgot to say. I will never by another Carvel cake again. If they can afford to give free ice cream to the Lohans for life then its obvious they don’t need my money.

  11. serena says:

    I feel sorry for the little boy, Cody. He seems to be the only normal one in that family.
    And Dina.. what a shame, really..

  12. clare says:

    I’m more interested in this “black” American Expresss card mentioned. Huh.
    Carvel must have given the Lohans their free ice cream for life card back when Lindsay was still in puberty, popular, and actually ate ice cream!

  13. Snarf says:

    Quick Dina! Call a press conference! This is MAJOR.

  14. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow. just…wow.

    “Just wait til Linsday and Ali hear about this!” yeah, because berating a clerk in a ice cream store is the MOST IMPORTANT THING that they could concern themselves with right now.

    never mind your daughter’s attempt at staying sober, or getting her career back on track. and never mind that your “home-schooled” UNDERAGE daughter is going to hollywood clubs and parties every night with her addict sister.

    this woman is the one of the WORST parents I’ve ever heard of.

  15. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Go Carvel employee!!! You’re treated worse than “regular” people, Dina, b/c “regular” people have the $20 for the ice cream cake. Classy.

  16. Me1st says:

    well they certainly don’t have financial problems according to Mommy Dearest so what was the big deal with just paying for the damn cake?

  17. bizzy says:

    “It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”

    and yet, they heroically go on being fame-addicted photo-whores, sacrificing themselves so people like me have something to do in the office other than my flipping work. thank you, lohans. your nobility does not go unnoticed, rly.

  18. TinaWithPom says:

    I thought that was Kate gosselin when I saw the header photo. Eh. both of them awful mothers.

  19. Weekends Off says:

    I don’t see why the Carvel employee was such a jerk about it. It’s a stupid ice cream cake…and why on Earth would the police and a police helicopter need to get involved???

    I wouldn’t be going back every day, I’d be handing back the card and telling them which hole to stuff it in…

  20. DoMaJoReMc says:

    …“It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”
    Well, when you ACT worse than regular people…..

    “Now Dina is going to make Carvel pay.”
    Is she gonna SUE them for requesting payment for an item? Dina, you idiot, have you heard of FRAUD? Well you SHOULD, you ARE one!

    …“Just wait until Lindsay and Ali hear about this,” she said.
    Ooooooooooooooh, I’m sure your big mouth daughter and her tramp-in-training are really gonna go to the mats for you.

    “When Ali gets back, I’m going to bring her in everyday to this store — and you can print that!”

    Can we actually see in print that Ali WILL finally be coming home, instead of with her cracked out sister? And if you are so pissed off at Carvel, why would you give them the publicity when Ali gets home? OHHHHHH! That’s right, the publicity will be for YOU and the other Lohan idiots.

    She hangs herself, people. And am I the only one who thinks she looks a bit like the other “MOM OF THE YEAR” KHATE Gosselin in the top picture?

    Ya, and what IS up with that badge? Impersonating an Officer to make herself look important?

  21. Fluffy Kitten Tail says:


  22. lucy2 says:

    OMG. Pay for your son’s effing birthday cake, you disgusting P.O.S.

    Rather than just pay it, or go home and get her own magical ice cream card, I bet she threw a royal fit, and one cop showed up, and she’s exaggerating it because she’s stupid/crazy/cracked out.

  23. Mrs K 2 be says:

    It wasn’t a “family card” if it had Ali’s name printed on it….DUH!!!
    She’s a skank.
    If “regular people” behaved how she did, i.e letting her underage children drink, miss school, behave like sluts, they would be taken into care. Does she really think her biggest problem is having to pay for her son’s birthday cake??? awful, awful, awful.

  24. Persistent Cat says:

    Wouldn’t “regular people” just be embarrassed about this situation and just pay for the cake quickly without a scene?

    I can’t believe a police helicopter got involved. Those things must be expensive and I’m sure they don’t just send them out for any old thing.

    “Just wait til Lindsay and Ali hear about this.” Then what? What exactly will happen, Dina? They’ll descend upon the store at night like ninjas? Show up with lawyers? Picket? Or not care because this is ridiculous and you’re a sociopath?

    Carvel reminds me of when I was a kid. I’m in Canada and the NBC, CBS and ABC feeds were all from Rochester so I remember the ads for Carvel, Tops Friendly Grocer and the Great House of Guitars. I was in Rochester a few years ago to see Springsteen (great show) and the next day, we wanted to see the Great House of Guitars but a storm was coming….. I’m treated so much worse than regular people. Wait, what?

  25. guesty says:

    imo…the employee’s reaction was over the top. & she should have just paid for the cake.

  26. WTF?!? says:

    If she was telling the truth about a “family card”, all the kid had to do was look it up on the computer. I forget my discount cards for drugstores and the Vitamin Shoppe all the time, they just search on the phone number.
    I kinda hope she does bring Ali to Carvel every day and the kid porks out. That’ll drive Dina nuts.
    Bitch shoulda ponied up the $17 for the damn cake.

  27. Bodhi says:

    What the hell are LL & Ali gonna do about it?

  28. Theresa says:

    I am more interested in any witness accounts, or the other side of this particular fracus. Dina’s description is going to play up her victimization, NOT any behavior on her part that might have escalated a fairly normal operating procedure of a store. Don’t be too quick to judge the actions of an employee. If the cards have a name on them (not just Lohan) it is for a reason; so the owner can’t pass it around to everyone so they can get free stuff. I doubt Dina has a card, because if she did, she could have left the store and returned with her own card and avoided all the conflict. I am saying this because I have had to do the same thing.

    As for her not being treated like everyone else? It’s most likely because she does not BEHAVE like everyone else. You get back what you give, IMO, and hers is coming back in spades!

  29. Green Is Good says:

    It just shows how we get treated so much worse than regular people.”

    Dina, maybe it’s because you and your druggie loser drama-queen daughter both act like entitled CU-Next Tuesdays?

  30. maria says:

    So, just pay for the cake. I guess in her deluded and satanic mind, to make a press issue and get something for free is more important than making the child happy with a birthday cake. Crawl back into your hole you old mole.

  31. onyx says:

    and somewhere out there George Clooney is weeping in his pillow thinking “I could have gotten with that”.

  32. Whatever says:

    Why can’t she act like a normal mother and pay for the damned cake?! Can she do anything without sponging from her kids or using her family name to get free crap? No wonder her kids are a hot mess.

  33. Maggie Grace says:

    She’s a pig. When did White Oprah and the Gosslin witch start to morph into each other, in mind, face, and body!?

  34. Feebee says:

    I seriously doubt she didn’t have a $20 on her to pay for cake. Her attitude is just so beyond belief because she thinks she’s entitled to have it for free.

    This should earn her a life-time ban from Carvel, not life-time ice cream.

  35. Obvious says:

    I am so now only eating Carvel ice cream. They have my support.

    And Dina, you were trying to commit fraud. Yes it may have only been an ice cream cake, but fraud is fraud.

  36. Paul E. Stanley says:

    People re-read the article. Dina said there was a police helicopter. Remember how truthful she can be. Not very truthful at all. I don’t believe there was a police helicopter at all. Just another made up fact.

  37. Kelbear says:

    Funniest thing I’ve heard all week!

  38. Lori says:

    Dina, how absolutely pathetic it is that you can’t afford to buy your own son a birthday cake! Then try to use one of your daughter’s perks, LOL! This bitch.

  39. Eileen Yover says:

    What’s with the badge in the top photo? This lady is off her freakin’ rocker.

  40. Lady LaLa says:

    Cody….As soon as you become of age…RUN!!!!!

  41. lucy2 says:

    Paul E, I was thinking the same thing! Anyone feeling like the Carvel employee over reacted, keep in mind you’re reading DINA’s account of this. Which is probably so very far from the truth.

  42. Miss Bitch says:

    Why didn’t she just pay for the cake?

  43. fugly says:

    @ #19 tinawithpom. YES! i thought the same thing!

    and regarding this story: WinTF??????
    this is insanity.

  44. gg says:

    Dina, pay for your food like regular people. Good, they didn’t fall for her scam. Kids might like it (they don’t mind blue food coloring in their food either), but I wouldn’t touch their nasty ice cream cakes for all the world. Their videotaped, badly-lit tv ads and talking cake were nauseating.

  45. Dorothy says:

    @Persistent Cat I am from Rochester and you didn’t miss much with House of Guitars, it is really all kind of hype.

  46. Patrice says:

    You know, I am really starting to feel bad for cops these days. WTF?! Don’t people realize that they have much more pressing issues to deal with like, oh, I don’t know, murder and robberies, than someone trying to use an f#ing ice cream card!!!! They should have arreseted the store emlpoyee for taking advantage of public service.

    P.S. Just last week in my state it was on the news that a 40-something woman called 911 to report an “emergency”. What was said emergency you ask? That she NEEDED A HUSBAND!! No seriously, I can’t make this shizz up. Unbelievable.

  47. jane16 says:

    Hate this lying, ugly skank.

  48. Madisyn says:

    This is the best story I’ve ever read on Celebitchy. Thanks CB!

  49. Liana says:

    I can’t believe a police helicopter got involved. Those things must be expensive and I’m sure they don’t just send them out for any old thing.

    They didn’t. Nassau County Medical Center is right by that Carvel in East Meadow and they airlift patients all the time to that hospital. I’m sure that was what the helicopter was. It HAPPENED to be flying overhead during her stupid ice cream meltdown.

  50. cuchulain says:

    My friends father owns CARVEL Ice Cream stores and IT IS NOT ACTUALLY ICE CREAM! Secondly, she is trying to get a FREE CAKE and not a FREE ice cream cone. Lastly, how extremely tacky and CHEAP these FREE-LOADERS BLOWHANS ARE! Yeah, she didn’t know it wasn’t HER card. BS CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP BITCH…BUY YOUR KID A CAKE…FREE-LOADER!

  51. M says:

    The New York Post is reporting that Denial Lohan called the cops, not the employee. Unbelievable!

  52. Persistent Cat says:

    Liana – That makes perfect sense. As she’s the biggest narcissist, she assumed it was for her.

    Dorothy – We assumed as much but still, nostalgia. Those were some awful commercials.

  53. Jeri says:

    Dina & Kate Gosselin do look a lot alike now. Ironic – the 2 biggest b–chs!

  54. original kate says:

    cookie puss don’t play that.

  55. Liana says:

    Oh, and I was informed by my brother that there was a shooting at the Medical Center nearby, which would probably explain the extra police presence (he lives nearby, in Levittown).

  56. geezus says:

    Shut up.
    Pay for the f*ckin’ thing and get the f*ck out!

  57. Madisyn says:

    Radar is reporting that Carvel is actually cancelling the card and that the card was for Blohan only. Also, Carvel said Denial Lohan has been abusing the card with large orders. This is not surprising at all!

  58. Tia C says:

    @ Madisyn: You’re right, not surprising at all!! She is SO tacky.

    On another note, I am glad to see her unsuitable bleach blonde hair is less brassy, and closer to a color found in nature. Too bad it’s not her natural color. It took me years to figure out, but we all look better with our natural hair color. Obviously, even at her advanced age, she hasn’t figured that out yet. …And we’re back at tacky.

  59. Ruffian9 says:

    ice cream? arrested? cops? WTF?

  60. Paul E. Stanley says:

    It was Dina that called the cops, all over a $20 cake.You see she can’t be trusted.

    Here is the official statement for Carvel;

    As part of Carvel’s 75th Anniversary celebration last year, we issued 75 Black Cards to celebrities. These cards were issued in the celebrity’s name and require the card holder to be present at the time of use. Many celebrities have enjoyed their cards at our Carvel Ice Cream shoppes and have shared their excitement with being included in the celebration,the company explained in a statement Thursday.

    Unfortunately, the Lohan family has been abusing the card. While the card was issued in Lindsay’s name only, her extended family has repeatedly used the card without her present. At first, we graciously honored their requests while explaining that the Black Card was not a carte blanc for unlimited Carvel Ice Cream for the extended Lohan family and friends. After more than six months of numerous and large orders for ice cream, we finally had to cut off the card and take it back. Dina Lohan reacted badly and called the police to have her card returned. The police responded and did return the card to Dina with instructions not to use it again. This is an unfortunate situation where certain people feel entitled to use a celebrity’s name for their own purposes. We regret that the Lohan family is upset and hope this matter is put behind us quickly.

  61. hairball says:

    People like her are mentally ill and will NEVER understand they are complete psychos and c*nts – ruining others’ lives. The best way to deal with people like her is to completely ignore her / not react. That’s worse then hell for them.

  62. GatsbyGal says:

    God forbid Dina fucking pay for an ice cream cake. How much money could it have possibly been?

  63. Eileen Yover says:


    HAHAHA Owned by an ice cream store! That is just priceless!
    Best thing I’ve heard in the celebrity world in FOREVER. Finally someone gives an entitled fame-whore their just “desserts”!

  64. Wresa says:

    How come CARVEL didn’t give gift cards to “REGULAR PEOPLE” for its Anniversary instead of these twits?

  65. Lia says:

    What a cheap-assed b*tch. Her son can’t have the cake because she couldn’t get it for free? The sense of entitlement the Lohans have is so ridiculous that it defies explanation. They are skanks with money. She should have just paid for the cake and left “like normal people”.

  66. tuttle88 says:

    What is the world coming to when Dina can’t get her free ice cream! Poor poor woman. She’s totally right they get treated so much worse than regular people! When I want ice cream I order it, hand over money and receive my product. I’m so glad I don’t have one of those cards they seem to be too much trouble!

  67. Max says:

    Now wonder that she complains that life is unfair. She is holding two drinks in her hands – me too doesn´t like at all having no hands free any more for anything else :-)
