Dina Lohan, Mom of the Year? Surely You Jest.

Wild child Lindsay Lohan has gotten enough attention to last a lifetime, but it’s much too stereotypical to blame the parents, right? Probably– but at the same time, praising them probably serves as total overcompensation.

Mingling Moms, a Long Island social group, has popped out of the woodwork to honor Dina Lohan for not doing much— just for raising Lindsay and getting her into the spotlight. She’s not the only one, thank goodness, with other honors going to moms who have raised celebrity-grade brood, from Natalie Portman’s mother Shelley Stevens Hershlag to Patricia Vian, Mariah Carey’s mother.

Could we sense just a little awkward tension in the Mingling Mom’s rep’s most recent statements? “We’re just honoring celebrities’ moms on Long Island. It’s something for Mother’s Day.” *Just*? Way to downplay your own celebrity awards banquet. Could someone be getting a tad defensive?

I have a feeling that someone’s going to be plugging “Living Lohan” at a certain banquet in Long Island today.
