Lindsay Lohan fans everywhere (if there are any?) will be disappointed to know that their favorite actress in recovery won't be kicking up her heels on the next season of Dancing With the Stars. But fear not, there's still hope one Lohan could get the gig -- Lindsay's mom, Dina Lohan. Well, if she gets her way anyway.
It wasn't Lindsay herself who broke the news about turning down DWTS, but rather her spotlight-hungry mom who did so in an interview with RadarOnline.com. She made sure to kiss up to the producers and plant a big, fat, obvious seed that she should be considered -- all in a brief interview.
The kissing up: "We are huge fans of the show and think it's incredible," Dina said. Then the not-so-subtle hint: "Lindsay actually told the woman at Dancing With the Stars who made the offer that 'you need to take my mom!'" (Here I imagine her doing her best fake laugh waiting to feign shock when someone is supposed to say, "Hey you know what, that's not a bad idea.")
She said while Lindsay is a good dancer, she's actually responsible for her daughter's abilities, because you know SHE IS A DANCER. Hint. Hint. ... plus some more sucking up.
Our family loves the show because I'm a dancer, and I taught dance when Lindsay was growing up. I dragged her from one dance studio to another, and she sat in front of the mirrors and watched, while I taught.
Got it. Hopefully, producers for DWTS won't bite, because the last thing we need is yet another celeb parent in the spotlight riding their kid's career coattails while said kid continues to spiral out of control.
Or perhaps that could be a theme -- a whole crew of dancers made up of parents of celebs who want their share of their spawn's spotlight. Let's see, they could start with Dina, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Heidi Montag's mom -- Darlene Egelhoff. Kate Gosselin could make a comeback, and perhaps Octomom could join her.
