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!”

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.
