Dina Lohan, mother-of-the-year to troubled young star Lindsay Lohan, recently attended an art auction in New York and reportedly made a complete and total ass of herself.
The Lohan matriarch attended the Rock Love Art Ball on the Lower East Side on Tuesday and reportedly displayed some pretty unusual and at-times awkward behavior, according to the New York Daily News. Lohan was jovial, though her mood came at the expense of any sense of self-awareness, according to sources.
One said that, after dinner, Lohan was “clapping and raising her hands in the air.” Waving them around like she just don’t care?
“When someone would receive an award, Dina would start clapping and stand up, the only one in the room standing,” a source recalled of the odd scene.
Lohan’s behavior was reportedly so distracting that the auctioneer called her out and asked her to restrain herself since her rabid hand-waving could have accidentally put her in the bid.
“This prompted the auction leader to call out to her, ‘Ma’am, I have to remind you, when I see your hands above your eyebrows it means that you are bidding.’ She told her to stop jiggling around,” the source said.
In attendance were Carlos Slim Helu, called the richest man in the world by Forbes; actor Cuba Gooding Jr.; Soledad O’Brien; and Chaka Khan.
The Huffington Post reports that Dina and Lindsay are rooming together these days, as LiLo is apparently unable to pay her rent in Los Angeles due to tax troubles, reduced earning power, and constant court costs.
Lindsay is also allegedly having trouble living with Dina because the latter “always wants to go out partying with her.”
Dina is also trying to parlay her celebrity into a few guest spots of her own. In an interview last month, she said that she really wants to be teamed up with Maks Chmerkovskiy on Dancing With the Stars, and told another news outlet that she is currently writing a memoir.
“It’s totally cathartic, but my kids are like, write the book already. So I think it’s time. I’m doing it more for my children than for me to shed light on what really went down when Lindsay was little and what she had to deal with,” she said.
“It’s actually my life story, not about Lindsay and not about my ex. … I’m from A to M. … I guess I’m at M at this point; I don’t know. Not at Z yet,” Dina explained.
