Dina Lohan gets owned by Carvel’s response to her abuse of Ali’s ice cream card

dina lohan 190310

Yesterday we heard straight from Dina Lohan that she was turned away at a Carvel ice cream outlet for attempting to get a free birthday cake for her son by using a lifetime free ice cream card in her daughter Ali’s name. Dina claimed that she had her own card, but had left it at home, and she became outraged when a clerk confiscated the card and called the police. She hilariously added that her family was “treated so much worse than regular people,” and sneered “wait until Lindsay and Ali hear about this.”

Carvel has responded to this incident, and their statement is very matter of fact and basically takes Dina to task. They say that they only gave cards to Ali and Lindsay, and that the cards state that the holder must be present to get free ice cream. What’s more is that the cards clearly say that no more than $25 in free ice cream can be obtained in a week. Carvel ice cream cakes run about $30 and up. Plus, Carvel points out that Dina is the one who called the cops to get her card back, and they didn’t just “show up” like she claimed.

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.

Unfortunately, the Lohan family has been abusing the card. While the card was issued in Lindsay and Ali’s names only, their extended family has repeatedly used the card without either present. At first, we graciously honored their requests while explaining that the Black Card was not a carte blanche 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.

This family’s sense of entitlement knows no bounds. The good thing is that the swag fest is just about over for the Lohans. Remember when Dina was selling her family’s old designer goods on LohanHouse.com? That website is still up with some scant good news from the Lohan family, but there are no longer any clothing, purses or shoes available. Dina just doesn’t get free stuff sent to her anymore, and I would doubt anyone is stupid enough to lend her anything. Her daughter is accused of pilfering tens of thousands of designer goods from various friends and photo shoots. It’s obvious where she learned it from.

    I think it is completely awesome that Carvel came out and set the record straight. What a bizarre sense of entitlement this family seems to have. If I had a Carvel store near me, I’d go buy a cone and thank them.

  2. Sam says:

    its a sad day when u get schooled the hell out of by carvel and fudgie the whale.

  3. Kate says:

    I am LMAO. What is in the cat is in the kitten. Of course Lindsey has no morals she was raised by a SKELL AND A SKANK. It is obvious they are WELFARE CELEBRITIES and are deplorable people. The MEDIA WHORE who groomed them has school them well on swag RESALE? HOW LOW AND EMBARRASSING! DINA…SELL YOUR HAGGARD OLD ASS ON THE STREET FOR YOU KIDS AND STOP WHORING THEM OUT. I just hate the seight of any of these SLOBS…BATH LOHANS…BATH!

  4. Canucklehead says:

    She kind of looks like a sad “Cookiepuss” in the photos.

  5. Snarf says:


  6. Ro says:

    A Lohan taking advantage of something free, I’m shocked. I think the ice cream company should be doing an internal investigation to try and figure out who in their pr team thought it was a good idea to offer a Lohan anything free.

  7. Kitten says:

    So it’s ice cream bloat?

  8. Lady Nightshade says:

    That is awesome. Go Carvel!

    P.S. Love the header pic

  9. Team Bethenny says:

    She reminds me of RHONY’s Ramona, which makes me feel sorry for Ramona.

  10. Kat says:

    What’s with Dina holding a toothbrush? heh.

  11. Cuchulain says:

    Dina…USE YOUR WELFARE WIC CARDS NEXT TIME! You know she was a ROCKETTE!!! NOT! Ashame on Carvel for handing out cards to people who could easily afford a cake…right except for Dina…public assistance than picks up the tab. Those LOW-HANS are all CLASS.

  12. Praise St. Angie! says:

    what I can’t understand is why she released that statement when she knew damn well that Carvel would respond with the ACTUAL truth and expose her as the liar she is.

    GDAMN, that family is so low-rent.

  13. Eileen Yover says:

    I ♥ this story so much because its SO overdue. Now when will other businesses start growing some balls when these WT fame-whores steal and fraudulently try to attain things?

  14. Leticia says:

    This woman is so ghetto. Calling the po po to get your daughter’s free ice cream card back? I’m embarrassed for her. they are using this free ice cream card like food stamps. I guess they are really broke and desperate.

  15. Riley says:

    At least Carvel has given Dina a great excuse when she is forced to check into Promises Malibu… “In a written statement, Dina Lohan explains that she has checked into Promises not because of drinking or drugs as some have alleged, but to get control of her ice cream addiction and abuse of ice cream cards. Promises Malibu is the only center in the US that treats ice cream addiction. ‘The day I was confronted by the young man behind the Carvel counter, I realized I had a problem and I vowed to take steps to become clean of ice cream. I soon realized I could not do it on my own, and this is why I am now in Promises. I promise my children I will come out of this a better mom,'” Dina noted in her statement, closing by saying, “I am sorry to all of those I have hurt.”

  16. Melanie says:

    Bunch of grifter gypsys.

  17. YT says:

    Yea Team Carvel!!! *lol*

    It’s about time someone told it like it is about a Lohan. Nothing better than being a persona non grata at a Carvel ice cream store. Great PR for Carvel, and I hope their sales are upwardly affected.

  18. judyjudy says:

    Seriously, all this drama over an ice-cream cake? Good lord.

  19. Kate says:


  20. bizzy says:

    i’ve worked retail. it’s a very special class of crackhead that calls the police when *they’re* making a scene in your store.

  21. Feebee says:

    Carvel has only 75 cards for celebrities and they give one to ALI Lohan? I can understand Lindsay receiving one, just… but Ali? Give me a break.

    I don’t understand why the police decided to give the card back to Dina and tell her not to use it. They might as well have given her a cocktail and told her not to drink it.

    The Carvel employee should have been well within his/her rights to cut up the card in front of Dina and the cops after such flagrant abuse of the terms and conditions of the card. A lot of stores and banks have probably been doing the same thing to her credit cards.

  22. Victoria says:

    I would have said “Oh, OK” and left Carvel to go and BUY my cake from Baskin & Robins, a bakery or I would have baked the cake myself! I would not have called the police! IS she high? Over a cake? Of course I dont have the sense of entitlement this heinous woman does and I dont think the world owes me a free birthday cake! 🙂

  23. lucy2 says:

    PraiseStAngie, it’s because she and Lindsay both think everyone is as stupid and delusional as they are, and can’t see the obvious truth.

    Can you imagine to poor PR person who had to take time out of their day to defend their company against Dina Lohan? Wow.

    I find companies giving wealthy celebs free stuff to be annoying, but I know they think it draws in business. What I find hilarious is that out of only 75 cards they gave out, they chose Lindsay and Ali for two of them.

  24. pooky says:

    I’m just shocked that anyone considers ALI Lohan a “celebrity”. At least her big sis has something of a cracked-out, car-crash fascination about her.

  25. Jen says:

    First, way to go Carvel! Second, how in the hell did the Lohans become ‘famous’ anyway? Seriously. Lindsay has been in a few flicks but that’s it as far as I know. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

  26. Jen says:

    P.S. Pay the $30 for the friggin cake, you cheap ass!

  27. Wisteria says:

    What a money grubber! I first thought that pic of Dina was of Kate Gosselin looking unusually rough.

  28. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ Riley:
    You, my friend, are my new POSTING HERO(INE?) I am in awe of your humor and I am sitting at my computer laughing so hard TEARS are rolling down my cheeks! THANK YOU for the laugh, you made my day! : )

  29. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Ali is a celebrity????!!!

    Enough said!

  30. a says:

    why is she holding a toothbrush? in yesterday’s CB photo she was wearing a badge. she’s all about the props.

  31. DoMaJoReMc says:

    @ a:
    Did anyone ever find out WTF she was doing wearing a badge? Did she get it from the officer that ‘investigated’ her ordeal like a pilot gives a ‘junior pilot’ a set of wings?

    This woman needs to GO AWAY, and take her props (all of them-kids included) with her.

  32. SolitaryAngel says:

    O.M.G. Best press release EVER! 😀 If we had Carvel around here I’d go buy an ice cream cake to reward them!

    Just when I think the Lohans can’t sink any lower…

  33. katyalia says:

    The way I’m reading their statement there was no seperate card for Ali, but one card for the Lohan (family) in Lindsay’s and Ali’s name.
    I’m more baffled by Dina’s threat of yesterday to make Ali now use the card everyday. ‘You can print that!’ Does this woman really still not understand a voided customer card? Even after she made a bunch of officers explain it to her?
    Btw: I normally dislike the phrase ‘getting owned’, but it’s the first thing that popped into my head when I read Carvel’s response.

  34. Persistent Cat says:

    Heehee, I like the cute Whale in the header pic. Made me laugh. Again, those commercials remind me of childhood.

    And the toothbrush picture is awesome. I bet you wish you could run it everyday, with every article, regardless of content.

  35. Jazz says:

    Team Carvel!! I suddenly feel like ice cream…

  36. denise says:

    I’m embaressed for her.

  37. Taya says:

    The Lohans are such a waste of air.

    Why did Carval give rich people free ice cream anyway? I always hated that crap.

  38. xxodettexx says:

    suddenly in the mood for a large carvel ice cream cake this weekend…

  39. Obvious says:

    SO I am officially printing out this story. It just made my day, even my migraine can’t keep me from snickering.

    @Riley, best. comment. ever.

    Dina, did SWAT jump down form that helicopter yesterday to take you too the loony bin? Cuz that’s where you need to go dear.

    I said it yesterday and I will say it again. I shall only be eating Carvel Ice Cream for the foreseeable future.

    :edit:ps, am I the only one who see the whale cookie superimposed upon the header image? can someone explain that one to me?

  40. Okay..okay..a few questions:

    *Why would Carvel give out Black cards to celebrities as an anniversary gift? Why not give them to regular customers?

    *How effing stupid are you to try using the card for yourself like you’re relavant?

    *WHY did the police even give the damn thing back to the ass?

    *Who in the hell left the gate open?

    *Are they so poor that they need free cakes?

  41. original kate says:

    so trashy.

  42. Praise St. Angie! says:

    to Obvious…

    lol…no, that’s Fudgie the Whale, one of Carvel’s most popular ice cream cakes.

  43. Green Is Good says:

    TEAM CARVEL. If we had one in our area, I’d buy a Cookie Puss cake to celebrate Dina LOWhan being bitch-slapped by Carvel. What a white-trash, conniving C-U-Next Tuesday.

  44. NayNay says:

    It is about time someone stood up to this family. They have taken too many things for granted, and enough is enough. I’m waiting for the day when Dina using the line, “Do you know who I am?”


  45. gg says:

    Cookiepuss! That’s the name of the scary cake in their videotaped ads! lol Barf.

  46. lucy2 says:

    LOL Obvious, were you concerned your glee was making you hallucinate? 😀

    I DO have a Carvel near me, and though I don’t like ice cream cake, I’m tempted to go buy one in support!

  47. nj says:

    I am annoyed that Carvel gave cards to these people in the first place. When do those two rail-thin coke sniffers eat ice cream? Was it for publicity? I would think they would get more public admiration from this incident. I do applaud Carvel for making Dina look like a fool. I think I may buy a cone tonight-for the first time in years.

  48. bondbabe says:

    This is so awesome – kudos to Carvel Ice Cream. I am going to go to the Carvel website and send them praise for their gumption. Everyone else who is in agreement should too. Here is the link:


    Think ol’ Dina will just let this lie or do you think she’ll be boo-hooing to the press about Carvel’s “lies” and “poor treatment” cuz their not regular people (and I agree they’re not regular people, they are completely irregular)?!

  49. loca says:

    THANK GOD, Carvel. Dina looks scary. Bad plastic surgery…

  50. M says:

    I want to know who the other 73 “celebrities” are who were also issued these cards. Anyone know? The whole point is for publicity, right? Who are they?

  51. Mur says:

    She is what Kate Gosselin is going to look like in about 5 years.

  52. Madisyn says:

    Bondbabe, I did email them last night and told them, that although there are no Carvel’s in Burbank, CA, the nearest are in Pasadena, Bev Hills, and Santa Monica, they should open a shop in Burbank just because of the Dina Lohan fracas, and I would get my ice cream cakes from them as opposed to Baskin Robbins.

  53. MissyA says:

    You know the Lohans are the type of people who flagrantly abuse their card with frequent and complicated orders, and they never tip.

    Sucks when “regular people” report abuse to their superiors, huh Dina?

  54. Madisyn says:

    Carvel please, please, tell me you have a security camera in the store and this was filmed. Wouldn’t you all just PAY to see the footage of Dina flipping out?

  55. bellaluna says:

    If I’d been the responding cop, I wouldn’t have returned the card to her. I’d have given it to Carvel to cut up right in her face. And then applaud them for doing so. Her name’s not on the card, it’s not hers, no need to return it to her.

    I’m so over the “gifting boutiques”a, free lifetime “celeb cards”, and all the other crap handed to people who can well afford to pay for it. I know it’s supposed to increase brand loyalty, or cause us “little people” to increase these businesses’ ACTUAL PAYING CUSTOMERS, but it really pisses me off.

  56. Johnthing says:

    So, how did Ali end up with a celebrity card? I’m still ponderin’ that one.

  57. Kim says:

    TEAM CARVEL!!!! LOVE that they called her out on it. What cheap trash she is!

  58. ol cranky says:

    ya know, it used to be that the entitled celebs (or pseudo celebs) gave their staff some re-gifted swag because they were too cheap to buy them an actual gift but when these folks are too cheap to actually pay for their own family members birthday cake? Then again, celebs these days are notorious for throwing multiple b-day parties for themselves and infotainment shows are full of celebrity birthday parties that are sponsored by some company

  59. juliana says:

    Dina’s hands look ROUGH.
    Maybe it’s time for her to get some sort of chemical peel done on those mitts?

  60. MsTriste says:

    I feel so badly for her son, who didn’t get a birthday cake because his mother is a delusional, self-entitled piece of sh&t.

    And kudos to whomever wrote that press release. Brilliant writing, not apologetic.

    Was there seriously a helicopter there, as Dina says? What’s up with that??

  61. Lia says:

    I would have payed to be the person behind Carvels counter taking that card from Dinas little pimpin hands!!!
    And by pimpin I mean Pimpin her kids out for some sweet moolah for herself!:P
    That family makes me want to vomit!

  62. Cinderella says:

    I’m sure there’s someone Dina can blow for a $30 cake. Just not at Carvel, ha ha!

  63. yae says:

    She has enough money without peddling for free food.

  64. Mairead says:


    Yes I know most of you detest that insult, but I’m sticking by it. I mean, what other term is more fitting for an oxygen thief who is so despicable for finding out ways of exploiting her daughters for cash, but yet so miserly that she can’t even spend $30-$50 on her son’s birthday cake?

  65. ctkat says:

    Yup- Carvel has another customer. I don’t live on the east coast, but I am visiting in August and to Carvel we shall be going. Other businesses should cotton on to the fact that calling the horrible “celebs” on their crap actually gets them positive press and sales!

  66. la chica says:

    i am NOT team Carvel. in fact i will never support them again as a matter of principle. when grifters like the Lolhans get things for free, it’s my money that’s paying for it. and for that i am officially pissed off with Carvel. so they just lost my support. when they start handing out black cards to poor people who can’t afford their ice cream, i will consider supporting them again.

  67. Mollination says:

    Is this real life? Is it going to be like this forever?

  68. GatsbyGal says:

    Dina is honestly the ugliest woman I have ever seen…EVER. I’m so glad she got put in her place, and I can’t believe she was so white-trash about a free ice cream card. Who spends more than $25 on ice cream in a week? Jesus Christ. Guess we know how Lindsay’s gaining all that weight so quickly.

  69. NicoleAM says:

    Always got my cakes from Carvel. This year it’s gonna taste sweeter!

  70. Lady LaLa says:


  71. skeptical says:

    Team Carvel!!! if there was a Carvel in my area i’d sooo try their ice cream cakes!

    Also.. I understand why some get angry at Carvel handing out those “free ice cream” card to rich people (tho not sure the Lohans qualify as rich anymore)

    But you gotta remember Carvel didn’t do that out of charity. To businesses, giving stuff to “celebs” is the same as paying for advertising.

    And they’re not the only ones who give freebies to well-known peeps wither. It’s just business. It’s just advertising. Not all ads work either.

  72. CB Rawks says:

    She was practising for when she has to re-learn how to use food stamps. Next week.

  73. MissyA says:

    I just spent 12 hours on my feet working a party for a local cafe. I make minimum wage. . . I have more beer on my shirt than I have in my system. . . I spent most of my time catering to children who have more x-box games than I can personally afford. . .
    And I made $40 in tips.

    People who claim to come from wealth and then bitch about the price of standard goods and services disgust me.

  74. YeahTOAST says:

    I just emailed Carvel’s customer service to tell them how awesome they are!

  75. JJ says:

    LOVE this story. LOVE Carvel for not taking her crap.

    Must go find a Carvel store now . . . .

  76. erika says:

    “Thank you extra for the toothbrush. Times are rough,especially now that we have to pay for ice cream. Do you happen to have some more? I have been wanting an electric toothbrush they are really cool”.

  77. jen says:

    why would the police give the card back? wouldn’t it be property of carvel and could be confiscated at any time at their discretion?

  78. Damn I adore this site. heart XOXOX.

  79. Damn I like this website. heart XOXOX.
