On Thursday's ET, Dina Lohan sits down with ET's Christina McLarty for her first on-camera interview since her recent much-buzzed-about appearance on Dr. Phil to set the record straight. Plus, the mother of tabloid target Lindsay Lohan gives advice to the parents of the embattled Amanda Bynes. Watch the video!
"You know, I'm a mother, and I feel that that's for her mother to speak about, and not me, because people have spoken for my child and myself, so I really feel that's for her parents to discuss and Amanda herself," says Dina. Asked for general advice for parents since she's been through similar situations, Dina replies, "Just be around. … It's hard when your daughter's not, you know, over 18, and you want to let them go … and they want to, you know, feel like they're in control of themselves. So it's a very strategic place for a parent to be, but she'll be ok."
As for her much talked-about appearance on Dr. Phil in which she appeared to be under the influence, Dina sets the record straight, saying, "I was absolutely not under, intoxicated, or on any kind of medication. I was extremely upset."
