Dina Lohan told Matt Lauer this morning on The Today Show her daughter had not admitted to herself that she was an addict, therefore SHE didn't want to tell the world her daughter was an addict -- it wasn't her place to make the admission:
- "As a mother it wasnâ€™t for me to come and tell the world about her problem ... I wasnâ€™t in denial. It was for her to come to her evolution. As a mother we protect. Now Iâ€™m happy and relieved myself."
She said Lindsay is doing well at the Betty Ford Center: "Sheâ€™s just a different person. Sheâ€™s been in a couple facilities, but this one to me has really changed her."
When asked about Lindsay's future, Dina told Matt:
- "I donâ€™t have a crystal ball. I pray hard. She wants to start her own (rehab) facilities, help other children. Sheâ€™s so public that I think we can only be positive and look to the future to help other families."
Would you send a loved one to a rehab facility owned and operated by Lindsay Lohan? Hers will probably be the $50,000/month type of place. Maybe she'll go into business with her dad?
