A day after Lindsay Lohan revealed that she'd checked into rehab, her mother said the actress is "absolutely fine."
"This is a wonderful, giant step she's taking and it's all good," Dina Lohan told People magazine. "Hollywood's a really, really busy scary place and everything is under control."
Well, except for Lindsay's drinking. Hence, her trip to rehab. Dina might need to speak with Tara Conner to learn how this works.
Mrs. Lohan says she's proud that her 20-year-old daughter is mature enough to take care of herself and "not worry about what anyone's going to say about her."
On Wednesday, Lindsay said in a statement she had made the decision to enter rehab in order "to take care of my personal health." She also figured that if Keith Urban had been there, lots of hot guys, vulnerable were ripe for the picking.
"Everything's great and she's just getting a grip on her life," says Dina. "When I was 20 I don't know that I would be that strong to do that, so it's all good."
She added, in a bout of hyperbole, that "as a parent I couldn't be more pleased and proud."
Really, Dina? It actually is impressive that Lindsay is taking this step, but perhaps more pride could be taken if it weren't necessary to begin with. Let's just hope that's the case for your youngest, Ali Lohan.
