Dina Lohan does the 'Today' show; Michael Lohan visits Lindsay in rehab

November 8, 2010 |  6:11 pm

Several activity blips have hit on the Lindsay Lohan radar, including a stop by the "Today" show from mom Dina and details of a visit to rehab from her father, Michael.

Chatting with anchor Matt Lauer, Dina weighed in Monday on the significance of her daughter's current rehab stint.

"She's been in a couple facilities, but this one, to me, has really changed her," Dina said, adding, "Addiction is difficult. I don't know. I don't have a crystal ball. I pray hard. ... We can only be positive and look to the future to help other families." 

While the Lohan matriarch did the talking-head thing, news of Michael's Sunday visit to Lindsay circulated.

Lindsay and her dad, notorious for feuding and trading barbs through press, had a reported emotional reunion at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage.

"There were hugs, kisses and even a few tears when Michael and Lindsay first saw each other," a source told Radar Online. 

The pair spent several hours shopping at a nearby mall, at one point perusing the goods in a jewelry store. The outlet contacted Michael for comment but were denied any juice.

"I have pledged not to comment about anything relating to my daughter," he said. "However, what I will say is that I am an incredibly proud father tonight. My daughter is progressing extraordinarily well."
