Lindsay Lohan Wants Her Mom To Go To Rehab
ICYMI, Lindsay Lohan is the expert on rehab now, having been in and out for years and making what looks like a final, successful go at it this most recent time around. And thanks to her newfound status, she's now able to assess that her mother, Dina, also needs to hit some sort of inpatient program, due to excessive consumption of alcohol.
Radar Online reports that the younger Lohan sees her mom drinking too much and is trying to step in. A source told the site:
“Lindsay has been worried sick about Dina lately...She knows Dina has been out drinking and she sees how much her own treatment helped her and so she has been begging her mother to go and get help.”
The same source said that Dina will probably try to stay away from anything resembling a place to get help come hell or high water, noting that she will likely "fight even harder than Lindsay did to stay out of rehab."
Lohan, of course, is making the PR rounds having successfully completed her court-ordered rehab. She hosted "Chelsea Lately," landed her own reality TV show docu-series, and she's even being mentored by Oprah. And of course, if Oprah told Lindsay that Dina needs to go to rehab, it's no one's place to say otherwise.
