Dina Lohan is to great parenting what Barbara Walters is to twerking. With that in mind, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Dina is now turning to Oprah to both save her daughter and bring in some much-needed money.

Dina is oh so thrilled about Lindsay Lohan’s new deal with OWN — partially because she thinks Oprah will essentially be Lindsay’s salvation. Boo, hiss. Boo, hiss, boo.

From Page Six:

After it was announced Lindsay will be followed post-rehab for a show on Winfrey’s OWN network, Dina told us at Jill Zarin’s Luxury Ladies Luncheon on Saturday in the Hamptons, “If there’s any mentor you could choose, there’s nobody better than Oprah. This is a great opportunity for Lindsay. We are all very excited about it.”

She added her daughter’s “healthy, happy and doing really well” in rehab — where she’s been since May — and the whole family was heading to visit her this week. Lohan will be interviewed by Winfrey in August before the reality show about her recovery screens in 2014.

This should be … “fun.”
