Michael Lohan is on a mission to help his daughter Lindsay — and if he has to trash former wife Dina in the process, well, so be it. The media-happy ex-con has been engaged in a war of words with the mother of his children, who says he needs to leave LiLo alone and stop claiming on national TV that she has life-threatening addictions. Now, Michael is threatening to make public alleged voicemails that contradict his ex’s public statements.
“Dina is saying that I’m lying — that Lindsay doesn’t have a problem and that she’s OK,” Michael tells the New York Daily News. “But I have proof that Dina has told me Lindsay is on death’s doorstep, that she doesn’t have much time left.”
“I want her off prescription medication,” he declares. “I’m not going to stop until then.
“As the mother of my kids, I won’t slam Dina personally,” Michael insists (rather ironically, since he just called her a liar). “But she has expressed to me that Lindsay is in dire, dire need of an intervention.”
Did it ever occur to Michael that maybe Dina thinks talking publicly about getting your kid an intervention is not the best way to ensure your kid will get an intervention.
Jon’s gal strikes back
Everyone seems to be jumping on the anti-Jon Gosselin bandwagon … even his new girlfriend. Hailey Glassman admits that her boorish beau “lies,” yells and “emotionally abuses” her, and confesses, “I love him but I dislike him at times.”
“He’ll call me and take his anger out on me,” the 24-year-old reveals to “The Insider.” “He has ‘mantrums.’ I shouldn’t have to put up with being emotionally abused. I cry and say, ‘Why are you so mean to me?’”
But … why stay with someone who hurts her so much? “I don’t want to leave him all alone,” Hailey explains. “At the end of the day, I love him but I dislike him at times.”
At this rate, Hailey may end up on Team Kate.
Dita: Awkward Alert!
Talk about awkward! A red-carpet run-in nearly turned into a traumatic moment for Dita Von Teese the other night. While talking to press at an NYC event, the former Mrs. Marilyn Manson realized she was standing just feet away from Evan Rachel Wood — the teenage actress who helped break up her marriage to the goth rocker.
But the burlesque star, after a moment of flusterment, “didn’t let it bother her. She brushed it off and enjoyed the rest of her night,” an observer relayed to In Touch magazine.
Classy. Mind you, we would’ve preferred to see a knock-down, drag-out red-carpet catfight. But that’s just us.
Celebrities get to dress up all the time, so when Halloween rolls around, they might well be all out of ideas. So we thought we’d offer some costume concepts to inspire the stars.
For Britney Spears: A Kevin Federline fat suit. Why not bask in her own triumphantly rebuilt bod while mocking her ex’s?
For new couple Katy Perry and Russell Brand: Each other. His garb is probably the only wacky getup she hasn’t donned, and wouldn’t it be hilarious to see him in a tutu made of bananas?
For Kanye West: A kitten, a puppy or a baby panda. Because he needs to be associated with something heartwarming and cute after crushing cutie pie Taylor Swift.
And finally, for Lady Gaga: Anything involving pants. Anything at all. Please. We’re begging here.
