Dina Lohan says the media targeted her because she’s a woman

Dina and Ali Lohan were on “The View” this morning to promote their new E! reality show, “Living Lohan,” which premieres tonight. They both repeated the mantra they’ve been using for the show all along: that they’re a normal family, that they’re using the show to dispel rumors about them, and that Ali just wants to be a singer without all the drama from the tabloids.

Ali said she’s not scared that doing the show might interfere with her life. As for having a hard time due to the show, she said “they trash me now, and I’m only 14. They said I got a nose job and that isn’t true.” She also said that Lindsay helps her make decisions about her fame: “My sister has definitely helped me, and she’s told me what to do and what not to do.”

Dina defended Lindsay using the same argument she always does, saying “She’s 21 and people forget how we were when we were 21. And unfortunately she had to go through so much publicly, and you don’t ask for that.”

Dina says she doesn’t party with Lindsay and that she’s targeted because she’s a woman
Joy Behar asked Dina about her bad reputation. “You have a reputation in the tabloids and maybe you want to clear some things up today. One of the things they say is that you and Lindsay were going out partying together. That when she was having a hard time with her personal stuff you were not there for her.”

Dina answered “That’s absolutely not true. I manage her and there are dads that are managers, I won’t mention names, in the business… she would have an event at a club and they would say I’m at a club, which is completely not true. I think they target women more than they do men unfortunately. It’s a man’s world. I was targeted and I was going through a lot publicly with the divorce and people just start rumors. I know who I am and trust me, I don’t party. I would rather go to dinner with everyone in this audience than with a 21 year-old.”

Just last year, Dina Lohan admitted that she loved partying and admitted lying to celebrities about being Lindsay’s mom
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar last year, Dina said “If you can button it and clip it when you’re in your 40s, you’re going out” and then put her hand up to get a high five from the reporter. She also told a story about how she lied to George Clooney and told him she was Lindsay’s assistant because she didn’t want to admit to being her mom. She said “I don’t want them to know I’m her mom. It’s a whole ‘nother demographic. People just go dark.” How is that a fabricated story by the tabloids or people targeting her because she’s a woman? Dina said it herself. You can see where Lindsay got her flexible idea of what constitutes the truth.

  2. sam says:

    No the media targeted you because you are a c**t and a terrible mother

  3. Devilgirl says:

    She must be higher than her daughter ever was if she REALLY believes that. The media targets hewr because she is a joke, an embarassment, and a common tramp. ❗

  4. Vince says:

    wow another woman hiding behind the “Im just a poor woman” card.

    Joe Simpson, the guys dad from AI, her, britneys mom.

    Shes being targeted because shes a leech.

    the psychology behind this all is very interesting.

    EVERYONE in this family is unable to look objectively at themselves and what their behaviour says about them. michael thinks he’s the victim, dina does, and blohan jr. does too.

    that is pathological behaviour that demonstrates a disgustingly low amount of self-reflection and emotional maturity.

    but they are “celebrities” – in their own minds at least.

  6. vdantev says:

    Wow, whatever you do Dina don’t take any responsibility for the slow motion train wreck your daughters’ lives have become because of your poor choices.

  7. Dee says:

    No she gets attacked because people think she’s a joke as a Mother , just like the award she won for Mother of the Year. Most Mother’s don’t go out partying with their children. She’s a freeloader and has no respect for her self or her children any of them, and just uses her children to make the money she never could!

  8. Jaundice Machine says:

    Excellent observation, jin.

    I can understand if one is young and just coming into their own as a person that there’s a certain amount of deflection of responsibility and an apprehension towards accountability. It’s called growing up, and everyone experiences it to a greater, or lesser extent.

    But by the time you’re 40. . . sweetie, you ain’t foolin’ no one.

    The media ‘targets’ her? What?!? She’s been chasing media attention for years!
    p.s. tell your daughter to wear underwear for christs sake.

    About Lindsay, Dina said, “And unfortunately she had to go through so much publicly, and you don’t ask for that.”

    Does she not realize this is the same thing she is doing to Ali? And Ali, no one says you’ve had a nose job, they say you need a nose job.

    But to defend her (hear me out), I’d say what I needed to to bang George Clooney.

  11. ayatolla_of_rocken_rolla says:

    can we stop posting her on these blogs? she is a NOTHING!

  12. CB Rawks says:

    “they trash me now, and I’m only 14. They said I got a nose job and that isn’t true.”

    I should hope not, because her nose is revolting,
    and if she DID have a nose job she should be demanding her money back from that surgeon.

  13. Codzilla says:

    So Lindsay didn’t ask for her life to be publicly scrutinized? Then why the hell did she flash her bits to every pap in town, and then stumble around loaded without even a hint of discretion? Oh, and then there’s the clepto tendencies that obviously haven’t died down.

    If you ask me, this bitch asked for everything she got, and when it all spiraled out of control, tried to claim unfair treatment. Everyone in that family needs to be forcible relocated to Greenland. Permanently.

    My question is… what is the girl in the background of the picture doing?

    She looks like she’s clawing her face.

    And Dina looks deranged.
