The Lohans are quite a bunch, aren’t they? Lindsay keeps publicly telling her dad, Michael to shut the hell up and Michael keeps publicly talking about, well, anything really. This time Michael has gone to the Maury Povich Show to talk about how his dear daughter has whittled herself down to almost nothing and Lindsay has retaliated by once again telling her dad to shut it. I rarely pay attention to these two anymore. They’ve gotten as predictable and boring as Lindsay and Sam. But what struck me about this particular interview is just what a horrible way with words Michael has. And when Lindsay’s asked about his comments, she proves that she’s no suave smoothy either. From US,
“On Friday’s Maury Povich Show, Michael Lohan reaches out to his daughter Lindsay, of whom he claims her health is deteriorating rapidly due to prescription drug abuse.
“There’s nothing left of her,” he said. “I was out in L.A. with her about three weeks ago when she got robbed. She called me up at 3:30 a.m. and said, ‘Daddy, come out here.’ I flew out and couldn’t even look at her. I had to go outside and cry. When I hugged her, it’s just a hollow, hollow person.
Asked what he wants to tell his daughter, Michael (with tears in his eyes) looked into the camera and said: “Lindsay, I love you with all my heart and … I am not going to bury you. You’re going to bury me before this is over. I will do anything and everything I have to to save your life. Whether mom likes it, or the public likes it or anyone, I am going to take all the steps I can to help you because I want you to have your life back. You’re not in the right state of mind. You’re my daughter, honey, and I can do this anymore.”
On Thursday, Usmagazine.com caught up with Lindsay, who said: “Everything is good. I am in a really good place. I’ve been working a lot. I literally slept the entire day yesterday. I woke up, and it was like 10 o’clock at night. I was like, ‘I have stuff to do!'”
Asked about her father’s concerns, Lindsay told Us: “I just wish he would shut up.”
Okay, I have to admit, that second paragraph of Michael’s is really kind of touching and filled with everything that fathers should say about their daughters. But, just because you’re skinny (even if it’s frighteningly skinny), doesn’t mean that you’re a hollow person. Saying that someone is a hollow person suggests that there’s nothing to them in any kind of caring or sensitive sense whatsoever. Also, why he is getting so bent out of shape just now about Lindsay’s drug use, prescription or otherwise, is beyond me. Lindsay has been on a downward spiral for several years now. And if I can see it, I know damn well that her dad can see it. This just screams publicity stunt to me, which of course is nothing new for Michael Lohan.
And although what Lindsay said isn’t actually all that bad or stupid, I hope she realizes that there are few things you can do when you wake up at 10:00pm unless it’s partying and drinking. Which I guess it what started all the problems in the first place.
