Several months ago, everyone really started worrying about 17-year-old Ali Lohan. There were photos of her in NYC where she looked… really jacked. Like she’d had lip injections and some surgical work on her face, plus she’d been starving herself and she looked really bony and emaciated. Many of us figured that it was likely Dina Lohan’s doing, considering Ali is now old enough to be “pimped out” by her mom, and in Ali’s case, that means being a “model”. Ali had scored modeling representation (with a legit agency), and the agency and the Lohan family went out of their way to claim that Ali had not gotten any “work” done to her face. Personally, I thought Ali had gotten some lip injections (which weren’t permanent), and she had gotten her breast implants taken out. Anyway, Ali is officially a “model” now – she scored her first magazine cover with Fault Mag, and now she’s the cover girl for Page Six Magazine. Page Six had an early excerpt of Ali’s interview:
Lindsay Lohan’s little sister Aliana, at 17, is growing up fast. Tall and with sunken cheekbones, Aliana (she’s ditched her childhood nickname Ali) has a contract with Next Model Management. Aliana appears on the cover of Page Six Magazine, inside the New York Post tomorrow.
Recently two different photos of her were juxtaposed, fueling online rumors of dramatic weight loss and even surgical procedures. Aliana, who explains her new look as a growth spurt, says, “I was cracking up. Because, like, when would I do that (surgery)? I’m 17 years old. That’s not legal! I would need my mother’s signature, and do you think my mom would sign off on that? No! Its not the right thing to do. . . . It’s stupid. I don’t listen to it. Its absolutely not true.”
Aliana is keen to find her own way in the modelling world. Cindy Crawford is her role model, she says, “for having branded her name really well.”
But despite seeking out her own path, Aliana is very close to her family. Of Lindsay she says, “You can’t trust anyone so we talk to each other about everything. . . . I admire how strong she is.”
Aliana insists she is the opposite of a wild child, she doesn’t drink or smoke, and, “I just say no [to drugs]. I’m lucky enough that I had my sister to learn from…I’ve seen people do it to her and I’ve learned to be like, ‘That’s stupid, no’. That’s why Lindsay and me are so close, because we’re able to talk about those things together.”

I’m reminded of that Plum Miami Magazine interview (the infamous one where Linnocent crack-screeched, “Move that cone, I’m Lindsay Lohan!”) where the writer said that Ali was often the designated “adult” in Linnocent’s nightly crack shenanigans. I actually believe that Ali is probably “the sober one” in her family – I believe that she’s had to grow up really fast with her parents and her sister being the catastrophic messes that they are. As for the “legality” of Ali’s plastic surgery – it’s kind of sweet that she thinks we have a high opinion of Dina. We know Dina – we know Dina would sign anything to pimp out her kids.
