Lindsay Lohan's Mom Wants on 'Dancing With the Stars,' Supercomputer to Face 'Jeopardy!' Champions and More

Dina LohanLindsay Lohan won't be on 'Dancing With the Stars' next season, but we could see another Lohan instead.

In an interview with RadarOnline, Lindsay's mom, Dina, said she was interested in appearing on the show even though her daughter turned it down, saying, "Lindsay actually told the woman at 'Dancing With the Stars' who made the offer that 'you need to take my mom!'"

No word on whether the producers listened to the suggestion, but since Dina's giving interviews about the conversation, we're betting they didn't.

Lohan's mom!?!? She's not a star! She's the mother of a washed up drug addict/alcoholic.

They are really scraping the bottom of the barrel for these so-called stars.

DINA LOHAN on DWTS?? lol! Well, her daughters career is in the toilet; which means her money train has/is drying up, so she's grasping at anything now that could possibly keep her in the spotlight. DWTS has become a platform for "Nobodies", so she should fit right in...along with that other so-called mother; Kate Gosselin.

"Lohan's mom wants on Dancing With The Stars". The true headline should be "Lohan's daughter wanted a nurturing mom" (and some kind of a father who wasn't a wreck to begin with).
Dina Lohan would be worse than Kate Gosling. You're either apauled or don't give a crap. How about Octomom, or baloon boy's father, or Moesha's brothor, A smithh kid, Lohan's X DJSamantha, And CHARLIE SHEEN could do an Apache Dance.

To make it interesting they should put her dad's new 20 year old girlfriend on the show as well.
I think Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs would be great on the show.
