I’m not sure whether this item in People Magazine is meant to be some sort of roundabout damage control for the public perception of Dina Lohan or whether it’s meant to make us feel less horrified in general about the idea that another Lohan kid is being dragged through the publicity circuit by her mother and she’s not in school like every other kid her own age.

Regardless, People has quoted Ali Lohan as saying that she was once bullied at school by some girls who made a film about her and used “disgusting” language. She specifically used the word “disgusting”.

"A little while ago ... a couple of girls in school made up a video of me and put it up on YouTube," Ali – whose E! reality show, Living Lohan with manager-mom Dina, debuts on Memorial Day – tells PEOPLE exclusively. "They used disgusting words. Like if my mom ever heard me say that stuff, I'd be grounded for life! ... They're disgusting kids. I got really aggravated."

Just as an aside, I like that she was so able to explain her feelings. What did you think of the kids who made fun of you, Ali?

They’re disgusting kids.

And how did that make you feel?

I got really aggravated.

Excellent. I think we’re really making some progress now.

I do find it mildly impossible to believe that her mother would ground her for life if she ever used bad language. Especially seeing as you know that the only thing that separates Dina Lohan from being completely outted as a potty mouthed truck stop diner waitress who chews gum relentlessly and lets the truck drivers grab at her as she walks by cause it gives her self esteem a quick boost is the fact that she’s demanding clothes and free haircuts and makeup sessions from anyone she can get it from by dropping her daughter’s name. She’s a swearer and she totally sits on the couch with her kids and eats frosting late a night. She’s one of those mothers who fluctuate madly between being the parent and being the best friend. I had a music teacher like that in high school. Completely ludicrous woman who lived vicariously through her students and then freaked out and insisted they treat her with respect. She was my Dina Lohan and she swore.

So, in short, Dina Lohan is trying to make people think she’s a good mother and she’s forcing her kid to tell the press about it. [source]

I hope you're watching Ali on Letterman right now. She's even more articulate in person!
