Dina Lohan confirms that the entire family is wiping the Lohan from their names. Dina and her daughter Ali will change their last names to Sullivan, Dina’s maiden name, while Lindsay will drop her last name completely making her just “Lindsay” like Madonna. Okay, eye roll, but I’ll humor her. How long has she been thinking about doing it?
Lindsay had been thinking about dropping her surname for some time but at first thought no one would know who she was. It was only after the infamous Super Bowl E-trade advertisement referring to a baby as “that milkaholic Lindsay,” that the actress knew she no longer needed it.
You mean she realized the time was right when she saw a commercial using a common name that had nothing to do with her except in her own twisted mind? Wow. This is confusing. How does the Earth revolve around Lindsay and me at the same time?
Also, why exactly are they changing their names anyway and won’t it be confusing?
“So many of the greatest people in showbiz are known by just their first name. Look at Oprah and Beyonce. Now you can add Lindsay to that list,” a family friend tells me. “And it’s a way for them all to start over. No one in the family want anything to do with Lindsay’s father [Michael Lohan] anymore and that includes sharing a last name.”
Putting Lindsay in the same sentence as Beyonce and Oprah is laughable. Though not as laughable as thinking a name change will give them a fresh start. That’s like thinking that by putting on glasses, a fake nose and a fake mustache, no one will recognize you. I bet the Lohans still get giggly when people play peekaboo with them.
