And she's chronicling Ali's career trajectory from 14-year-old, freckle-faced innocent to firecrotched rehab resident/tabloid target on her new E! reality show, Living Lohan.
I smell an Emmy!
Well, that all sounds fine and good, but judging by this Christmas song recorded in 2006 by a heavily ProTooled Ali, I think Dina has her work cut out for her:
However, Ali also portrays a younger version of her elder sister in Lindsay Lohan's presumably autobiographical family-drama video, "Confessions Of A Broken Heart (Daughter To Father)," and her acting skills seem to be pretty decent here:
Then again, just like it probably wasn't very challenging for Eminem to play a white Detroit rapper in 8 Mile or for Courtney Love to portray a smacked-out nutjob in The People Vs. Larry Flynt, it probably wasn't too much of a stretch for Ali to take on the all-too-familiar role of the traumatized spawn of completely dysfunctional stage parents.
So, will Living Lohan be as exploitative and sensationalistic as "Confessions Of A Broken Heart"? Or as trite and ho-hum as "Christmas Magic"? Stay tuned. Or, don't.
