dina lohanLindsay Lohan's mother Dina Lohan has no problem being her daughter's sloppy seconds. After Lindsay allegedly turned down an offer of $550,000 to appear on Dancing With the Stars, her mom Dina was all, Oooh! Oooh! Pick me! which, as I'm sure you can imagine, is simply mortifying for everyone involved. Dina sat down with A.C. Slater on Extra to talk about the potential of this oh-so exciting possibility and proved to everyone that, no, her supposedly drunk Dr. Phil interview didn't teach her a lesson whatsoever and she's still more than willing to embarrass herself and her children by chasing after stardom.

And by trying to start a trending Twitter topic begging "fans" to get her on the show, and by writing a tell-book called Parent: Trapped, and by getting into fights with her kids. But who's counting.

Dina Lohan claims she's the most misunderstood parent in the nation, but really, I'm not seeing what's so hard to understand about her trying to capitalize on an opportunity such as DWTS that didn't suit her flailing daughter, who can barely show up on time, let alone stay out of court. 

As a citizen with a handful of morals, I think it's disgusting that Dina would want to bring more attention to herself and her troubled family on DWTS.

But as a lover of all proverbial train wrecks, I think it's a brilliant idea to put Dina on the show. Just think of all the awesome headlines about Dina "pulling a Lindsay" and showing up late and drunk to rehearsals. And how wonderful will it be to see Lindsay Lohan sitting in the front row, reluctantly cheering on her mother who's admitted that it's her fault Lindsay's a mess. And how satisfying will it be when she's voted off early because, really, no one wants to see her on TV, ever. Won't it be swell? I'm serious!

The new season starts March 18 on ABC, with or without Dina.

Would you like to see Dina Lohan on the show?
