Lindsay Lohan's mother Dina is set to tell all about her daughter's recent jail stint and current rehab stay in a U.S. TV interview on Friday, August 13. The "Mean Girls" star was sentenced to 90 days behind bars earlier this year after she was found to have violated the terms of her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI arrest.

She served just 13 days behind bars at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, California and was transported to a rehabilitation clinic as part of a court-ordered 90-day treatment program. Lohan's lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, revealed the troubled star is "doing very well" at the center, where she is believed to be undergoing treatment for her reliance on prescription drugs.

Now Dina Lohan, who flew from Los Angeles to New York on Wednesday, August 11, is expected to reveal all about how the 24 year old is coping with her legal issues in a special interview with "Today Show" reporter Matt Lauer. The talk is expected to air on Friday morning.

Lindsey's problems obviously stem from an enabling parent and one who is in denial about her daughters problems. Blaming the judge for Lindsey's issues are ridiculous - she didn't obey the law, more than once, so the judge did what was absolutely appropriate. Lindsey should move East and get away from her mother. (not that it will do any good if she refuses to admit she has problems). And, Matt, I commend you for sticking to the issues, although I think way too much time was given for this subject.

Kudos to Matt for being able to stay focused and calm durning the interview w/Dina Lohan. How does a child learn to be held accountable when the role model is so disfunctional. At some point children have to stand on their own two feet but when the foundation is quicksand how can they ever manage.

The apple does not fall far from the tree. I think Dina Lohan needs help. Poor Lindsay she needs to be adopted by parents that are not selfserving and will actually help her get better.

no wonder Lindsay has problems taking responsibility for her actions, her mom is the same. Lay the blame on everyone else and don't make the girl own up to what she's done wrong.

Looking at her daughter's (Ali) website. The one she says her daughter doesn't have!
