Lind­say’s friend

The Washington Times Weekly - - Culture, Etc. -

“ ‘Lind­say [Lo­han is] no dif­fer­ent than any other 20-year-old girl who’s do­ing some ex­per­i­ment­ing,’ [her mother] Dina says to me dur­ing our brief phone con­ver­sa­tion, which took place sev­eral days be­fore Lind­say, fresh out of re­hab, got ar­rested again, this time for DUI and co­caine pos­ses­sion. [. . .]

“Per­haps more dis­turb­ing than want­ing to be her daugh­ter’s friend, Dina Lo­han also wants to share the spot­light — at least ac­cord­ing to those who have spent time with the two of them. ‘This is a wo­man who jumps into her daugh­ter’s makeup chair be­fore the pre­miere. [. . .] Her mes­sage to ev­ery­one is ba­si­cally “Lind­say would be noth­ing with­out me,” ’ says a Hol­ly­wood pro­ducer familiar with the two of them. ‘And now she’s go­ing to do this show where she shows how she’s mak­ing her other daugh­ter, Ali, a star. It’s like she’s say­ing, “Look, I can do this with any kid.” Her deal isn’t “I want my kid to be rich and fa­mous.” It’s “I want to be my kid.” ’ ”
