This Mother's Day, thank your mom for not being a crazy fameball.
Sunday is Mother's Day, so naturally we're thinking of reasons we're thankful for our moms. They gave us life, fed us, clothed us, told us that prom dress made us look like a two-dollar hooker...you know, all the good things conscientious moms do. And we're especially glad that our moms were not showbiz fameballs who accompanied us to nightclubs or angled for their own reality shows. Join us, won't you, as we take a look at some crummy moms who'll make you want to hug yours for an hour. Oh, and then check our YourTango's new mommyblog and share favorite mom tales.
Let's count the ways Dina Lohan is bad at parenting. She went clubbing with her minor daughter. She rode her daughter's fame to her own reality show, in which she exploited her other children. She refuses to acknowledge that Lindsay has a drug and alcohol problem, even after two DUIs. She's pimping out her younger daughter, 16-year-old Ali, and has repeatedly lied about her own past. Sure, Dina's ex-husband, Michael Lohan, is even more reprehensible than she is, but it takes two messed-up parents to create the ongoing disaster that is Hurricane Lindsay. The best we can say for her is that she made Lindsay go to her deposition in that coke-pants-car-hijacking case earlier this week. Except that they were at the Chateau Marmont at 2 a.m. the night before the deposition. Seriously, WTF. Lindsay Lohan Goes Mental On Sam Ronson Again
For the record, we are 100% against giving all of your kids names that start with the same letter. Especially when that requires that you misspell their names (cough...Kourtney). And we're against filming your preteen daughters as they work the stripper pole that's in your bedroom. And we're against parlaying another daughter's adventures in amateur porn into a reality show (Kris, on an early episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, regarding the professionally-lit sex tape: "As a mother, I wanted to kill her. But as a manager, I knew that I had a job to do.") And we are really, really against the word "momager." Especially when all you are "momaging" is a "career" based solely on amateur porn.
