Although the interview doesn’t air until Monday (Sept. 17), Dina’s bizarre behavior is already making news.
In addition to her bizarre comments and behavior, the momager seems to be slurring her words, prompting speculation that she was intoxicated.
Michael, who was interviewed separately via satellite, suspected as much, asking McGraw, “Was [Dina] drinking before she did your interview?”
At one point, Dina randomly tells Dr. Phil, “Look at you, you’re in your little tie and little shoes.”
“What the hell does that mean?” he retorts.
The exasperated psychologist accuses Dina of “deflecting, stalling, dodging,” “being phony” and “flitting around,” Dina says.
“I’m not flitting around, I’m being scrutinized by you people,” Dina says defensively.
“You people?” Dr. Phil fires back.
Presented with a “Lindsay Timeline” delineating LiLo’s years-long legal problems, Dina, who has been called “the worst mother in America,” makes a joke:
“If she was living in New York, five of them would be obsolete,” she says.
“You’re missing the point!” exclaims Dr. Phil, who ultimately concludes:
“What you have done is distinguished yourself in the negative.”
