Shameless Dad Michael Lohan is taking his plight to ‘save’ his daughter Lindsay Lohan from him herself and her alleged continued drug use.  Michael is always seeking the limelight very concerned about Lindsay’s downward spiral and he taped the episode with Maury last week to make a very public and most intrusive emotional plea to Lindsay to change her ways.  Of course, my first assumption is that Balloon Boy’s Dad and Jon Gosselin gave him the go ahead with this plan to ‘help’ Lindsay.  OK Magazine posted the highlights of the interview:

Lindsay, I love you with all my heart and I don’t care if it’s the death of me,” Michael pleads to his daughter through the Maury cameras. “I’m not going to bury you, you’re gonna bury me before this is over. I’m gonna do anything and everything I have to to save your life, whether mom likes it, the public likes it, or anyone. I’m going to take all the steps I can to help you cuz I want you to have your life back. I’m not going to see you destroy yourself anymore. People grope at you when you’re not in the right state of mind. You’re my daughter honey, and I can’t do this. I can’t do it anymore. I’m just not gonna see you fall.”

More emotional stuff from Michael after the jump

Papa Michael recalls being shocked seeing his daughter immediately after her L.A.-area home was robbed. “There’s nothing left in her,” he says. “I was out in L.A. with her about three weeks ago when she got robbed. She called me up at 3:30 in the morning. She said, ‘Daddy, come out here.’ I flew out and got her out of the house. She was in an apartment, in a hotel actually, when I just, I couldn’t even look at her. I had to go outside and cry and when I hugged her, it’s just a hollow, hollow person.”

The good dad goes on to express concern for his other daughter, 15-year-old Ali. “At the beginning, I believed that Ali was a saving grace in Lindsay’s life because Lindsay wouldn’t party around Ali,” he explains. “She wouldn’t do this, she wouldn’t do that, and they leaned on each other and Ali is a very mature young lady. However, when she’s in these clubs and she’s around this kind of an element, I begin to worry and wonder too.”

Showing his turn-the-other-cheek side, Michael apologizes for comments he made about Lindsay’s on-off-on-off girlfriend Samantha Ronson early on in their relationship. “At the beginning, I was getting fed information that Samantha was a bad, a bad, you know, she was bad for Lindsay’s life and I believed some of the things that were said to me because they were coming from people in my family and close to me,” he admits. “I’m wrong. Samantha, I apologize 100%… I was looking at it from the wrong perspective. Samantha was actually helping, she wanted Lindsay to get away from all the negative things that she was doing.”

 All of these Reality and Stage Parents just need to go away.  I would probably believe it a whole lot more if his intervention didn’t include lights and cameras.  But one thing that I can say that this interview has already provided me an answer to a question that I have had for sometime…..Maury actually has other topics on his show besides ‘You are Not the Father’.
