Lindsay Lohan‘s mommy dearest is the latest Lohan to take on the tag-team tabloid spotlight, and this time, it’s the “Mean Girls” star who’s coming to the rescue.
Dina recently came under fire for her strange appearance on “Dr. Phil,” in which she mumbled, made irrelevant comments and seemed altogether out of it, leading critics to speculate that she was inebriated at the time of the interview.
The older Lohan, 50,Â denied that she was drunkÂ during the taped interview, telling TMZ that she didn’t “care what it looks like.”
“All people saw was two minutes edited of an hour long interview,” she told TMZ at the time. “Of couse they cut it to make it interesting. That’s their job.
“I don’t blame them for doing that. Some of the comments were taken out of context but I’m fine. I’m fine.”
On Saturday, Lindsay similarly jumped to her mother’s defense,Â slamming Dr. PhilÂ for bullying Dina.
“@DrPhil You should be ashamed of yourself. What kind of man takes advantage of a woman @her most vulnerable state?” she tweeted. “YOU are the fraud.”
Though the tweet was later removed, the “Liz & Dick” actress, 26, did also note that her mother is “amazing, beautiful, talented” and strong.The mother-daughter duo’s behavior has come into question before.
Earlier this month, Michael LohanÂ told The NewsÂ that he believes that Lindsay needs to take a break from the Hollywood scene – and, importantly, from Dina.
“I really think Lindsay needs to get away for a while,” he told The News’ Confidenti@l gossip column. “She just needs to get away from everybody.”
On Sept. 15, Lindsay accompanied her mom for a night out on the town in Hicksvill, L.I., whereÂ Mama LohanÂ drank mixed drinks all night to celebrate her 50th birthday.
â€śAfter finding out Dina was drinking in front of Lindsay on her birthday, not only do I think itâ€™s pathetic, but obviously she doesnâ€™t think what anyone thinks of her as a mother,â€ť Michael LohanÂ told Confidenti@lÂ of the occasion.
â€śItâ€™s absolutely disgraceful that a mother would appear on ‘Dr. Phil’ in the condition she was in and continue on the same path. Even more troubling is now she was drinking around and with Lindsay.â€ť
