An coming episode of "Dr. Phil" will feature a conversation between the so-called self-help guru and a drunk Dina Lohan, according to reports. It has not been confirmed that Lohan is intoxicated, but the questions have abounded in the days leading up to the interview, which airs Monday.
Fans and gossip-hounds have been analyzing the minute-long promotional video, which features Dr. Phil asking Dina about being called the worst mother in America and why many believe that Dina hasn't been there to support her famous -- and troubled -- daughter, Lindsay.
Entertainment Weekly reports that Lohan is blaming the wacky interview on poor editing, something viewers will be able to decide for themselves after the full interview is broadcast Monday. Also featured in the short video is Michael Lohan, Dina's ex-husband and Lindsay's estranged father, asking Phil whether Dina had been drinking before the interview started.

"I don't care what it looks like. I'm fine and I don't care what anyone says," the Lohan matriarch told TMZ.
"All people saw was two minutes edited of an hour long interview. Of course they cut it to make it interesting. That's their job. I don't blame them for doing that. Some of the comments were taken out of context, but I'm fine. I'm fine"
She also told the gossip site she is a "good mom." Lohan has three children aside from Lindsay.
"I think the interview will be good. I know what I said and the facts are what the facts are. The proof is in the facts. The truth will set you free," Lohan said, presumably unaware her reasoning sounds like that of a drunk person.
This is hardly the first controversy Dr. Phil has courted, leading some to suggest he seeks out salacious celebrity stories to drive ratings under the guise of trying to help people.
Last week, it was announced that Jael Strauss, a former finalist on "America's Next Top Model," would come to Dr. Phil for an intervention to help her deal with a meth addiction. In that interview, Strauss stormed out of the studio and wept in the parking lot because of the attention she was under.
