Dina Lohan gets her reality show

The following news release showed up in the Tabloid Baby mailbox this morning. Lindsay Lohan's mother is getting her reality show on the E! network. This was the reality show originally called "Momager" that she was hawking and filming while her golden gosling Lindsay was in rehab-- the one in which she pimps out her two youngest kids onto the Hollywood tray the way she served up Lindsay. This is is a big reason the inspirational reality show featuring her ex-husband Michael Lohan (see the trailer at the right of this page) never got any traction. A few years ago, people would have called Child Services to take a good look at a woman like this.  Nowadays, they just give her a reality show so we can all look and feel superior while a couple of more Lohan kids hop onto the sled to Hell.


Bunim-Murray Productions and Maloof Television Present "Living Lohan" (Working Title), Debuting Summer 2008 on E!

Los Angeles, CA, March 4, 2008 – E! Entertainment Television will debut a new nonscripted series starring celebrity mom extraordinaire Dina Lohan and her youngest daughter, up-and-coming teen star Ali Lohan (14). Viewers will go inside the Lohan's Long Island home for the first time to follow Dina as she works double duty as mom and manager to help Ali try to follow in her big sister's famous footsteps and pursue her own shot at stardom. Co-produced by Bunim-Murray Productions and Maloof Television, "Living Lohan" (Working Title) will debut summer 2008 on E!

Dina has faced intense scrutiny over the past year due to daughter Lindsay's (21) highly publicized mishaps and her long-simmering divorce from her ex-husband. But the Lohan family has demonstrated great resiliency and, with Dina at the helm, they are moving on with their lives. Dina is determined to help each of her four kids fulfill their dreams and refuses to live in fear of what others may think, despite being under the paparazzi microscope.

E!'s cameras will follow the single mom every step of the way as she manages Lindsay's hectic schedule, while helping Ali jump start her music and acting career. This takes the family to the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, where Ali will record tracks for the Maloof's Interscope-based record label. Having grown up in the shadow of her sister's stardom and much publicized lifestyle, Ali is determined to achieve her own brand of success. But Dina is more experienced this time around and will do everything she can to protect Ali from the pressures and temptations of young Hollywood.

The series will also feature Dina keeping track of her son Cody (11) whose sports teams, homework and endless energy are enough to keep any soccer mom busy, as well as her older son, on-the-go college student Michael (20). Viewers will get to know the Lohan's close-knit extended family as well.

"The Lohans are one of the most intriguing families in the entertainment industry today," said Lisa Berger, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Series Development for E! "This is a family that knows how to roll with the punches and come out on top. Dina is an incredibly hard-working, passionate mom that I think our viewers will find both relatable and highly entertaining."

"We are excited to be in business with the Lohan family and E! and look forward to a memorable series," said Phil Maloof, Chairman and CEO, Maloof Productions. "This series will provide an entertaining and unprecedented look at one of the most recognized families in America."

"We've been given unprecedented access to Dina Lohan and her kids lives; as a result, our series will deliver a powerful story that will both surprise and delight E!'s viewers," said Jonathan Murray, President, Bunim-Murray Productions.

Dina Lohan Gets Reality Show Deal as Nation Recoils

Authenticity continues as the theme o' the day. Dina Lohan, the Momager and "White Oprah" snags a deal at E!. Tabloid Baby has the entire press release.

Frankly, we can't argue with the E! mouthpiece.

However, we have our fingers crossed that Dina's show ends up nothing like the mind-fuck Michael Lohan reality show pitch that we have clipped for you.

If watching Mikey sending former Baywatch babes into the arms of perverts, traipsing around cities in a Tyra-like attempt to see what it feels like to be homeless, and beginning the video pitch while standing in front of a glamour shots cloud background is in any way a glimpse into Living Lohan, we may consider canceling our cable. And then scream into the nearest pillow.

god, I loved the Michael Lohan demo! And I didn't expect to.

It was just crazy, visceral, random, head-scratching, visually interesting and clipped with care. Everything I want in a reality show! Oh, and no buff dudes walking around with chains and scarves as jungle wardrobe.

Dina, on the other hand, I don't like.

These children should have been taken away from their exploitive mother when Lindsay was still the cute little freckle-faced kid in "The Parent Trap." Here goes a couple more childrens' lives down the toilet.

I think Living Lohan will definitely surprise viewers. I'm already addicted to the show. I think it's entertaining to see an inside scoop of how much the media plays into their lives and how much of it is so untrue. Can't wait to see Sundays episode. Apparently Lindsay isn't the only mean girl. Take a look at a sneak peak...I really feel bad for Ali.
