When I found out that Lindsay Lohan's mother, , was getting her own show, I was extremely excited because I have been a fan of Lindsay's since the "Parent Trap" days. I knew from the first time I laid eyes on this red haired, freckle faced little girl that she had the potential to be a major star. I also was excited about the new show because I love celeb-reality television.
Anyway, while I was watching "Living Lohan" I realized a lot of things. The first thing I realized was that white girls could sometimes be a little too nice. In this week's episode Ali (Lindsay's little sister who is on the come up) faced adversity from her school mates because of her upcoming fame. These little bad behind kids were not only following her but throwing things at her and yelling mean things to her. Dina refers to them as the " but what "Dina doesn't seem to realize that this isn't a movie, this is real life and in real life a bully never goes away until you defend yourself.
Dina was so disgusted by the hate that she wanted Ali to be home schooled but Ali said that she definitely wanted to walk down that graduation aisle so school is where she wants her to stay. Dina then decided to take her to Impact, an organization where talented kids from all walks of life come together in unity. What I didn't understand was why the hell didn't she take Ali to self defense classes? I mean if these little girls want to harass her, why not show them that they too can get their ass kicked. I mean would they harass Ali if they knew she could fight or had a belt in Tai Kwan Do. Self Defense classes would have taught her discipline as well as beat-ass-ology (yes, I made that up). I don't know, I guess they wanted to go the right way because they don't need any lawsuits (and I could understand that).
The show also reminded me about how welcoming my black people is. We welcome every race in. Ali looked like such a dork at the place when she performed with the other teens and yet my black people made her feel cool. I also learned that white people raise their kids to dream. Ali is in no way a good singer however her mother is preparing her by getting her voice lessons and things of that nature. Did you notice that when Dina's youngest son asked Ali a question and Dina told him that he will be a great reporter (so don't be surprised to see Lohan's youngest behind the cameras or something in the future). See what I am talking about- if you speak great things in existence, great things will happen for you.
Yes, Lindsay may have turned into a dumout but she still has accomplished more at 21 years-old that most did in their whole life. She has done some crazy things in her life but she isn't doing anything else I haven't witnessed a young white girl do while I was in High School or College. Overall I think that Dina is a good mother because in the end you can't control what your grown ass, rich ass kids do. I think the show is better than we think it is. You just have to look at the underlying message. If you agree or disagree. Email me at email@example.com. Peace!
