Dina Lohan is still delusional. As Lindsay Lohan falls deeper in the downward spiral of irrelevance, self-perpetuating drama, burglary and drug abuse, her mother continues to justify her behavior and her insanity. If I was being kind, I’d say that Dina is the one of the few people still on Lindsay’s side. If I was being honest, I’d say that Dina is just as much of a user and abuser as Lindsay, just in a different way. In any case, Dina gave an interview about her daughter to OK! Dina claims that Lindsay is a “genius” and that Lindsay will be a director one day. Yeah, I rolled my eyes too:
If there’s one person that’s solidly in Lindsay Lohan’s corner these days, it’s her momager, Dina Lohan, who praises her daughter as a “genius” who just wants to be successful in her career and live happily with a family.
Lindsay’s most recent foray into the entertainment business is the production company she just started, a venture Dina is all about.
“She’s a genius. Such a good heart,” Dina told OK! at the Charlotte Russe 2009 Fall Launch in NYC, adding that Lindsay will also be heading behind the camera.
“Lindsay will direct one day. She loves directing,” Dina revealed to OK!.
And although Lindsay’s acting career might seem at a low ebb right now, Dina thinks a busy career isn’t the only thing to aim for in life.
“You know what, I taught my children to love. And if you fall in love, life is about that. Family, it’s not about work. You want goals, you want it to be, but you still want someone to share that with, so it’s kind of an open ended question. We’re all living that,” Dina explains to OK!.
“We’re all looking for love and someone to be with; someone to share that with. My parents have been married for 50 years, we see that and that is important. It’s work, but you want to separate it, go home and have a family. [Work] is not going to be forever.”

So Dina’s talking point is that it’s okay for Lindsay to just be a party girl, because there’s more to life than work. And yet Lindsay’s talking point is that she’s always working. Lindsay claimed earlier this month that she’s a “workaholic” who is “creatively frustrated”.
Yesterday, another interview with Lindsay came out, but I can’t find the original source for it, so it may be based on that old “workaholic” interview. In this one, Lindsay claims: “I do like to go out, but there aren’t many girls my age who live in L.A. who don’t. But what people don’t realize is that I work very hard during the day. I am a very hard worker, there isn’t much time during the day when I’m not thinking about work. I enjoy going out but I enjoy working more.” Whenever I see pictures of Lindsay, she’s always shopping or giving paparazzi the stink-eye as she wanders around, cracked out. If that considered work now?
