Lindsay Lohan just wants her dad to shut up
Yesterday, or maybe the day before... I'm bleary-eyed and unfocused from watching the Democratic Convention on CNN. It's not as good as the Olympics, I think, but there's always the hope that Anderson Cooper will do something cute. Which is preferable to Michael Phelps doing something cute.
Anyway, as I was saying, Lindsay Lohan's idiot father Michael attacked Lindsay's girlfriend Samantha Ronson, telling E! that, "People like Samantha Ronson don't need to be around Lindsay. She shouldn't be dragging Lindsay around nightclubs. Who was Samantha Ronson before Lindsay Lohan? She was nobody. She is using her for her own gain. All these people have inserted themselves into her life like parasites, and it's not right. I'm done with them." He also insinuated that Samantha was going to be writing a tell-all book.
Well, Michael, last night (or whenever) Lindsay told Access Hollywood, “He’s out of control. I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love."
Then Samantha posted the following on her blog, which I'm not linking to because it's too early in the morning for foul language and the commenters there swear a lot. They need to wash their mouths with soap. (BTW, Samantha is too cool for capital letters):
"i really don't want to say anything because i feel like he wins- he, being the man who is so desperate for attention that he goes to the media whenever possible- i know i am being used, i am just a pawn- easy to sacrifice in order to feed his addiction. I was angry when i first read his attack on me, but- for me- i believe that actions speak louder than words... so now i just pity him- i am not standing in his way- i am not the reason that he has no contact with his daughter- he is- his need to throw a tantrum for the whole world to hear is- i am not going to go into a play by play defense- i feel no need to publicly defend my role in lindsay's life- i'm just sorry that she likes me more than him.
p.s. i'm not the one that is so lost that i need to use my relationship with lindsay to earn a living.... i am, always will and always have been here for her for her- not for anything else....so I think it's safe to say that there is not now and never will be a tell all..... written by me..... when does your book come out mr. lohan?"
Next up? Here's Lindsay's reply from her blog:
"If you have something to say to me, say it to my face- that's what i have believed my whole life- don't be a coward and say it to others first, let alone all the media in the world- i think we know where the rest of this blog is going...
If you guessed it had to do with my father- then you guessed right! It really hurts, because i have tried- after all that my mother and siblings have gone through, i really tried to make things work- For the hope of having a father again-wanting things to change- even though people have said, some people will forever remain the same.
Having said that- the people were right, and he is yet to change- but this time, without his daughter by his side- He has become a public embaressment and a bully- To my family, my co-workers, my friends, and a girl that means the world to me (its obvious who that is).
He has no idea what is going on in my life because i have chosen not to involve him in it- His recent attack on my life and my loved ones is simply for an ADDICTION THAT HE HAS- FAME. Why he feels the need to comment on anything in my life that i may want to keep private, is beyond comprehension- If he really cared about me and my life, then he would learn to respect my wishes by staying out of it.
Samantha has not and would never sell me out. Nor has my mother, who is wonderful.
This further proves that any information that my father has about me or the people in my life is internet based- and about as accurate as a page six item.
I'm not going to engage any further, though i probably could go on...
I have said enough, i have a therapist, and it is not the the camera man at x17."
Exciting, isn't it? If we could just somehow get Denise Richards involved in this. And then get my special Anderson to weigh in the way he did about the Living Lohan show. Bliss.
