There’s a new Mommy War brewing in Mommywood and it ain’t pretty. This one involves Liv Tyler‘s mom Bebe Buell and Lindsay Lohan‘s mom Dina Lohan. Come to think of it, it’s more of a one-sided rant than a full-blown battle, but it’s amusing nonetheless. And it goes something like this: Bebe thinks Dina is a crappy mom, that she she’s “morally wrong and disgusting,” and that she should start being there for her troubled daughter. Ouch!
Bebe, a former Playboy model, reveals all this and more in the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine. And she kind of sounds like a crazy person. Is Dina Lohan a model mom? Of course not. But she actually seems slightly more sane than Bebe does in this bizarre interview. Here’s a little excerpt so you can see what I mean:
Dina Lohan’s relationship with her daughter Lindsay disturbs me. I don’t see a mother and a daughter there. If my beautiful daughter was like that…. I mean Lindsay and Liv were practically born on the same day. So I look at Lindsay and I see my own child in her because there’s a great talent there. But if my baby girl got that screwed up I would NOT allow to make her own decisions. I’m sorry! Anybody can think what they want. But I would abduct my child and I would make sure that I didn’t leave her side until she didn’t have those problems anymore.
What her mother has done with Lindsay is morally wrong and disgusting. She should back off. Lindsay is the one with the talent. She’s the star. But she also has to be responsible for her own actions. Her mother needs to start being a mother and not yes her to death. Maybe I’m speaking out of turn, it’s none of my business. But look at what Kim Kardashian’s mother has done for that family. I actually love what she does! I think she’s qualified and the family has made a joint decision that they want to be in this together. What Kim Kardashian has done with her family and brand is brilliant!
If Lindsay spent a year with me I could turn her around. I could have her winning her first Oscar in two years! First I would want to go some place alone with her. I would take her some where in the fresh air. I would want her to tell me what’s happening inside of her and what’s hurting. I would ask her why she needs to feel altered. If she says because it’s fun and it feels good I would feel she has a good chance. Because we all acted up when we were her age. There just weren’t so many camera’s on us back then. But this kid can’t do anything and everybody judges her. She’s so talented. She’s like a young Ann Margret to me. I would just love to build her self esteem and let her see how beautiful she is.
The first thing I would do is put 10 pounds on her. She needs a more Kittenish quality. She’s looking too thin right now. That’s not a good look. And she also needs to go back to being a natural red head. The blonde hair doesn’t work. It ages her. She just needs the right people around her. She’s got it all man. She’s just around people who don’t get it.
She needs to stop going out and not being seen for a while. The mother going with her to events and witnessing her throwing drinks and stuff like that infuriates me! It makes me angry! It’s about a lack of education and connection on the mother’s part. I don’t mean school when I say education. I’m talking about the education of the soul. Some people just aren’t elevated. They’re not there yet. She’s driven by money, not spirituality. I gave up the desire for money to be there for my daughter. I feel that’s what Dina should be doing. Be there for Lindsay, like I’m there for Liv.
If Bebe herself didn’t sound so whacked out – like someone desperate for her own reality TV show – I’d actually agree with some of her comments. Instead, I just feel badly for Liv.
