RIP “Shoe-han”: Dina Lohan’s budget shoe line crashes

wenn5397131

Last year, Dina Lohan (“Mother to the Stars”) introduced her newest incarnation: that of “budget shoe designer”. We had a lot of fun with the whole idea of Dina designing cheap anything, but what was especially hilarious was Dina’s idea for the shoe line’s brand name: “Shoe-Han”! Shoe-Han was genius. Shoe-Han was going to be an epic success. Shoe-Han was going to save the world. And now the dream is dead! Sob. Fox News Pop Tarts reports that the “much-hyped” shoe line has fallen through. Due to the economy! It’s like they didn’t get the orange-streaked memo that Shoe-Han was budget!

In October last year, Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina Lohan made headlines with the announcement that she was partnering up with Long Island-based shoe company Lovemyshoes.com to launch (and become the national spokesperson for) her very own footwear line called “Shoe-Han” which was slated to be ready by Mother’s Day 2010.

However, Pop Tarts has learned exclusively that the much-hyped deal has already fallen through.

“Love My Shoes regrets to announce we are not moving forward with the Dina Lohan line of shoes at this time due to continued economic sluggishness and the prevalent mood of today’s shoppers,” a rep from the company told us. “Love My Shoes and its President, Robert Yeganeh, wish Dina continued success in all her projects.”

But according to a rep for Lohan’s shoes, the star mom is still determined to accessorize your feet.

“There was a miscommunication over finances, this was too local and we need a larger partner,” said the rep. “We are currently exploring other options, and we will have another announcement soon.”

We wait with bated breath.

I would be willing to kick in $5 to invest in Shoe-Han. But I want to be on the board of Shoe-Han, and I want there to be board meetings as often as possible. And I demand, as an investor, that all the shoes come in shades of “Dina Lohan orange”. Like, here are some ideas that I’d like to give Dina free of charge. How about the Shoe-Han Ultra Heel (5 inch stilettos) in either Dina Burnt Umber or Dina Sienna?

    Did the shoes ever get to the stores??

  3. Janesaid says:

    She is a laughing stock and a fool.

    And Karma’s a beotch. She has destroyed her kids … good luck with that, you coked out whore!!!

  4. Maddie says:

    WoW I’m surprised (NOT) she does her business how she does her kids, poorly.

  5. Praise St. Angie! says:

    shocker.

    here’s the issue with people like this doing any type of clothing/shoe line.

    she is so universally hated, who on earth would even buy anything with her name on it? even if it was the most gorgeous shoe you ever saw, would you buy it from HER line? I know I wouldn’t.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Ha ha. Hahahahaha!
    I love that first pic of her, that should be her official head shot.

    Open toe…boots?
    What a surprise – trying to launch an ugly shoe line “design” by a psuedo-celeb everyone hates in the middle of a bad recession didn’t work!

    Aaahahahah!

    Five bucks should get you Chairman of the Board, K.

    Oh my GOD when I read “LoveMyShoes” I almost just died. Of laughter. I remember hearing about this last year, but I had no idea LoveMyShoes was the company she was working with. That company and that woman deserve each other, I hope they lost a BUNDLE.

    I could go on for a good 4 paragraphs about why the owners and management of LoveMyShoes deserve every bit of economic hardship they face, but I’m satisfied enough to gloat and dance around their steaming pile of fail. *Dances*

    I think Dina Sienna could even spawn a totally new color – Dienna.

  10. Ruby Red Lips says:

    It couldn’t have happened to a nicer woman!!!!

    Cashing in on her daughters cracked out fame is a disgusting act as a parent so I am glad this bombed.

    Dina Lohan would be much better served looking after the welfare of her daughters – I don’t think there is any hope for Lindsay – but Ali should be being parented properly & not spending her time on rich men’s yaghts with her drug addled sex addicted alcoholic elder sister

    Melissa, I just googled the site and it doesn’t seem that bad, did you have a bad experience with them? I saw a cute pair of flats, should i not order them?

  12. Cinderella says:

    She always takes the most unflattering pictures. That or she’s just plain ugly.

  13. Sumodo1 says:

    Shoe-han. Coming to a “Ross” store near you.

  14. kermit says:

    Yes, but she’s not quitting here. She has two more projects in the works.

  15. lola lola says:

    This leech does not deserve any projects or offers of any kind. I will NEVER buy anything associated with her or her children. I will not support them in any way.

  16. ogechi says:

    Madam, give your children better upbringing and all the best.

  17. Melissa says:

    Hatsumomo, I worked in one of their retail locations on Long Island for two weeks. During those two weeks, I was called in for shifts on every one of my days off. I was in high school, and had two days after school off for extra-curriculars. When I said I couldn’t, my manager threatened to fire me. I found out from one of the girls who’d been there a few months that the best way to keep your days off free was to bribe said manager. This girl was the only employee, excluding the manager, who’d been there more than a week. That place went through employees like toilet paper.

    Some days, especially weekends when it was busy, we would be denied any form of break on 10 hour shifts. The manager spent his shifts bragging about his closeness with the owner, the new speakers in his mustang, and sleazily hitting on the highschool-aged girls that comprised the staff. It was all about ass kissing when a customer was considering a purchase, but if they wanted to make a return (even for a valid reason), this individual would go out of his way to make the process a drawn out, tedious test of patience for the unsatisfied customer.

    While I can’t say 100% that the entire company is run by people who’re okay with such innapropriate, illegal working conditions, I do know that that manager had been around for quite some time, and was around for quite some time after I quit. Their shoes are cute, but I absolutely despise the company because of my experience working for them.

    The only good thing to come of it is that now, when the higher-paying job I’ve held for the past four years gets hairy (I have to say “no” to people quite often, and they do not like this), I can always smile and remind myself that it’s not LoveMyShoes.

    Edit: And there’s my 4 paragraphs. Ha.

  18. kermit says:

    well, she’s going to show up on the Insider.

  19. *Lee* says:

    Ugh, open toed boots. Shocking that they didn’t sell.

  20. Lway says:

    Who’s surpized that she screwed this up too? Look at her kids, for god sake, she’s a failure.

    Everything she touches turns to shit

  21. No Sensei says:

    The shoes don’t even match!

  22. Emily says:

    Lol I saw this out of the corner of my eye and thought it said Dina had died, and my response was just “meh”.

  23. kermit says:

    @Lway Careful. Dina has 4 children. Mike Jr. is 22-years old and falls under the radar but is seemingly a very normal and decent young man going to college with a steady girlfriend for the last 3+ years. There’s also Cody (Dakota) who is 13-years old and stays out of the news. 16-year old Ali seems to be doing reasonably well at this point too and stays out of trouble so far and mostly out of the news. You may see her in paparazzi shots with Lindsay, but stays quiet with media post Living Lohan show (show was in 2008). With Ali, there’s a system in place to help her as she spends much of her time in LA, but floats between LA, New York, Las Vegas and another location.

    I think this in spite of Dina and Michael Sr., but not all of her children are screw ups, either.

  24. Lway says:

    @ kermit: My bad. The other kids were probably raised by their grandparents.

    Dina is useless – i’m sorry, but her track record is disgusting and so is michael’s. The fact that Mike and Cody and Ali are okay is pure luck.

  25. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Ali maybe okay now, but I’m certain hanging out with your elder drug addlled, sexaholic, alcoholic paparazzi loving sister is never going to be a positive influence…

    IMO Lindsay needs help, but until she admits this herself then there is no hope. Rehab x3 didn’t work, beacuse it was not off her own back to get better – she simply is not interested in getting help or willing to give up the ‘high’ life that she lives

  26. With Ali, there’s a system in place to help her as she spends much of her time in LA, but floats between LA, New York, Las Vegas and another location.Cheap watches
