Dina Lohan Should Send Judge Marsha Revel a Thank-You Note!

Dr. Michelle Golland: Finally, a serious response to Lindsay Lohan's irresponsible, reckless and immature behavior! She will serve 90 days in jail and then go into a 90-day drug rehabilitation facility. Judge Marsha Revel had given Lindsay as many chances as she could to clean up her act, but (as many people struggling with addiction issues know) that's impossible to do when you're still in denial about your own problems -- and have entourage members enabling your erratic and self-destructive ways.


Judge Revel was frustrated and angered by Lindsay's repeated excuses and serial lying about drinking and drugging. She also pointed out that Lindsay took over three years to complete her alcohol education classes (a process which should have taken 18 months). The judge sees right through Lindsay's Hollywood sense of entitlement.

We have all seen how Lindsay's parents have failed her from a very young age. It's not that they are totally to blame for their adult daughter's behavior, but Lindsay clearly was never given the tools to handle her success in a responsible and mature manner. A judge is now forcing upon her the guidance, boundaries and consequences that were severely lacking from Lindsay's self-involved mother, Dina, and father, Michael. At least Michael Lohan has come out and said that he is pleased with the court's decision. Hopefully Judge Revel has saved Lindsay's life -- and possibly her career.

Let's not forget that all of this stems from two drunk-driving arrests and a charge of cocaine possession. As a society, we take drunk driving and the deadly consequences that can result from it very seriously. The person who should have taken this most seriously was Lindsay herself -- but again, denial, ego and money can be deadly for an addict. Lindsay's dangerous road has been littered with poor judgment, friends who support her stupidity, a mother concerned with her own fortune and fame and a father who, sadly, woke up just a little too late.

This sentencing -- which I believe is appropriate and justified -- may be Lindsay's savior. The fact that she had "f*** you" painted on her middle finger before attending her hearing demonstrates her lack of self-control and lack of respect for the legal process. Who is giving Lindsay advice? Did anyone tell her that having the F-bomb on her nails probably wasn't such a good idea? I sure hope her mother laid into her about it, but my guess is that Dina would try to minimize even this inappropriate action. That's where Dina has gone wrong in the past: She has been in denial about the seriousness of her daughter's emotional problems. She keeps minimizing her daughter's behavior.

Dina Lohan should send Judge Marsha Revel a thank-you note (and maybe some flowers) to make up for Lindsay's manicure faux pas! The judge's firm consequence for Lindsay's unacceptable behavior -- the excuse-making, the pseudo alcohol-treatment, the repeated lying -- needed to be handled with tough love. Dina and Michael Lohan have apparently been unwilling and ill-equipped to give that to Lindsay themselves.

What does the law think is going to happen when these kids who make money before they even graduate are going to do at 18? Maybe everything should go back to 21. These kids get mountains of money at 18 and do whatever they want. I don’t think it has much at all to do with how we raised them. There are periods in all families of discord or dysfunction. Some more than others. My son came into some money at 18 and I begged the lawyer to change the paperwork until he was 21 or at least only give money for schooling. I got told that “he was an adult” and could do what he wanted. He immediately hooked up with the wrong people and didn’t get himself together until about 23. Those were years of hell for me as a mother. I don’t think the “law” is looking at these situations correctly. I believe the 21 rule should be put back into practice in every state in this country. It’s been shown that even many of those who go in the military are reckless with their recreational ideas that include drink and drugs. I believe that most parents try to raise good children. I also think the “law” should take another look at this thing of being an adult at 18. They need more time than being 18. Maybe if Lindsy Lohan had more time she might not be in such a mess.

Glad she’s going to the slammer!

The funny part is that she is crying like she got life in prison. She got 90 days which means she will be out in a month. Think of it as a vacation girl and get over it. Its about time they cornered her. So tired of celebrities getting away with ordinary crimes that the average man can’t get away with. ‘I couldn’t go to my traffic school classes because I was working!’ Yeah, well take a day off. It didn’t bother you when you were late to your own photo shoot by 11 hours. Had people waiting a half a day for you. Make em wait another half a day and go take care of your business. Full of so many excuses. Hopefully this will save her life because she is headed down a destructive road.

I went to the doctor and he mentioned that he doesn’t do that type of point. I’m a little over 200 pounds it wasn’t like i was asking for bypass surgery but i he couldn’t do anything for me. So which type of physician do you imply, i just require a little guidance/help and i was turned away, so i’m so confused now.

If a man does not make new acquaintances as he advances through life, he will soon find himself alone. A man should keep his friendships in constant repair.

Hello there, - spotted your blog accidentally when drifting round the net this evening, and pleased that i did! I do like the design and style and tones, but I should point out that I’m having issues when it loads. I’m making use of ELinks 0.11 internet browser for mac, and the side panel won’t align correctly. i’m confident I have made use of a similar design on a client’s web site, but the menu seems O.k. on mine. I have an idea the problem is with my outdated browser and maybe it’s the perfect time to upgrade!
