Since Lindsay Lohan has been barred from leaving the state of California during this week's Thanksgiving holiday, she'll be spending it in the Golden State.

With her father Michael!

The troubled star tried to get permission from officials at the Betty Ford clinic to head back to New York for the holiday, to be with her mother and siblings.

LIKE OLD TIMES: Will Thanksgiving 2010 mark a new, positive chapter in the Lohans' relationships? Or just another bump on an extremely bumpy road to ruin?

Betty Ford wasn't having it though, so she'll have turkey at a home in Palm Springs where MiLo is staying, close to the rehab center! Miracles can happen!

Michael wants his ex-wife and Lindsay's awful mom, Dina Lohan, and all of their kids to come out and spend the day, but for now, Dina's not interested.

Maybe a Christmas miracle instead?

So much for that warm reunion between Lindsay and Michael Lohan.

Back at her L.A. apartment for the day before heading back to rehab in Palm Springs, Lindsay had security officers at her building remove her estranged dad.

Michael showed up, unannounced, in the lobby of Lindsay's apartment building late last week. Security called LiLo and she told them to send MiLo packing.

The recovering actress was reportedly upset he showed up on her doorstep. Michael ended up leaving without a fuss, but the damage is apparently done.

Someone in Michael's camp (which apparently exists) claims he was just trying to bring his little girl some Chinese food for dinner. Guess it didn't take.

"This is so disappointing," Lindsay reportedly told a friend. My father hasn't changed, even though he kept telling me he had. My mother is right, yet again."

Lindsay Lohan and estranged parents, Michael and Dina, haven't had the best of relationships, but all three may sit down to resolve old issues, reports say.

Just when we thought we'd seen everything. What's next? Kanye and W making up and Bristol Palin making it to the final four on Dancing with the Stars?

Oh, wait ...

ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY? Hey, anything's possible. Apparently.

Doctors and therapists at the Betty Ford Clinic, where Lindsay Lohan will continue to reside until early 2011, have been "encouraging" her to get in a room with her folks to resolve issues that may have put her in her current state.

Five or six years too late, but hey, better than never.

Michael Lohan just can't believe the father of a troubled young celebrity is exploiting his daughter's situation for publicity and money.

Lindsay's dad is referring to Patrick Lovato, who keeps speaking to the media about his child's self-esteem issues and has also mentioned Michael's rehabbing offspring in a couple of interviews.

In response, the man who has never met a microphone he didn't embrace says he has "two reasons why I have no respect for people who talk or comment about others." They are:

Lovato on the Red Carpet

Until Patrick Lovato becomes as much of an egocentric jerk as Michael Lohan, daughter Demi will be forced to stand-in for photos of her rarely-seen father.

"In most cases, those individuals are looking from the outside in, and they are passing judgment or commenting on people they know nothing about. The second reason is because they are too cowardly to say it to the person themselves."

After an emotional reunion in rehab, Lindsay Lohan and Michael Lohan are back on speaking terms and have apparently turned over a new leaf.

No, this is not April Fool's Day!

Lindsay Lohan reunited with her estranged father at the Betty Ford Clinic, where she is being treated for drug addiction and emotional issues.

These two are getting along. Never thought we'd see the day.

"It was an emotional reunion… there were hugs, kisses and even a few tears when Michael and Lindsay first saw each other," a source said.

It is a stunning and dramatic turnaround for the 24-year-old wild child, who has perpetually blamed her dad, a drug addict felon, for her woes.

Not without good reason, either. The guy is (or at least has always been) a Class A Douchenozzle who puts money and fame ahead of her.

Are things finally turning around, though?

America's least favorite celebrity mom, Dina Lohan, visited the Today Show Monday after spending time at the Betty Ford Center with troubled daughter Lindsay.

Lindsay's chief enabler and de facto publicist called the facility "life-changing" and an "amazing place," and sounded surprisingly humble (for her) about her struggles.

Matt Lauer asked Dina, who spent two weeks in family sessions at the clinic, about Lindsay's condition. "Happy, relaxed. She's just a different person," Dina said.

"She's been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her. They get into your psyche and your family and they bring the problem to the surface."

Lauer and Lohan sparred the last time she was on Today, but this time, there wasn't too much contention, even when Matt pressed Dina Lohan on Lindsay's woes.

"When the judge said [Lindsay] needed to go here and sent her, he said to her in no uncertain terms, 'You're an addict,'" Lauer said. "Does Lindsay fully get that?"

So much for his pledge to disappear from the spotlight.

This isn't his usual plea for attention, but Lindsay Lohan's estranged father, Michael Lohan, is back in the news ... because, he claims, he was attacked by an unknown assailant last night, and the middle-aged man slashed his neck!

Seriously, the police came after he said this happened.

Shut Your ...

Did someone to quiet MiLo ... permanently? [Photo: PacificCoastNewsOnline.com]

Michael claims he was attacked outside his home in Santa Monica about an hour after he received a threatening phone call. Shortly after the call, Michael says he went out for cigarettes, and that's when he says the attack occurred.

He told police that he went to open his car door and was jumped from behind by a man who choked him and "caused substantial bleeding" by taking a sharp object to Mike's neck before Mike fought him off and he fled on foot.

As for possible motive? He feels it's someone who doesn't want him to show up at Lindsay Lohan's court hearing today. In other words, take a number.

Michael Lohan has it with the press. So says Michael Lohan, in a statement to the press. He'll never talk about his family to the media again ... except now.

"I want to make a public statement," he said, for the 2,358th time this year.

"I will not be commenting on ANYTHING relating to my daughter Lindsay Lohan, or ANYTHING my ex-wife Dina, or any 'sources' related to her, might say."

"NO MATTER what accusations, lies or conjecture are disseminated to the public about me, for the sake of the ones I love and with hope of creating peace, I WILL NOT respond ... in ANY way, to what is said or done, to me."

Michael's statement concludes, "For the sake of those I offended, I apologize and ask their forgiveness ... So please refrain from calling or contacting me."

This is it, folks. The last time you'll ever hear from Michael Lohan.

We give it 4-5 days.

Michael Lohan may need to get drunk and cause a scene after all.

The douchenozzle father of Lindsay Lohan showed up at the Betty Ford Center today to try to see his daughter Lindsay, only to be turned away by security.

Mi-Lo tried to visit Lindsay as part of Family Week in rehab, since he's family, at least biologically. But she apparently made it clear he's persona non grata.

Sources say Michael made it out to Palm Springs only to be nixed by a guard at Betty Ford who referred him to someone in charge of the "Family Week" list.

Michael went to his nearby hotel and called said person, and says he's waiting for a call back. Just sit there, man. Don't call us again, Mike ... we'll call you.

Maybe they have HBO at the hotel?

That douchenozzle Michael Lohan needs to get a clue.

Unable to pry himself away from cameras long enough to give his massive ego a rest and realize he's a terrible father his kid despises, he instead resorts to one ridiculous gimmick after another to get the attention of the media Lindsay Lohan.

His latest stunt? MiLo claims he's going to intentionally fall off the wagon and check himself into the Betty Ford clinic - that way he can be near his little girl!

The Douche Store Called

Michael Lohan, who Lindsay admits is the root of her problems, says he's willing to stage his own arrest if that's what it takes to get tabloids' Lindsay's attention.

He says he's going to show up at Betty Ford and demand admission. If that attempt to see Lindsay fails, he's going to get drunk, then go back and make a scene.

Okay, he's an awful person and all, but we kind of hope that happens. This is a celeb gossip website, after all. That'd be pretty good as far as THG material goes.
