Michael & Dina Lohan Fire Back At Anderson Cooper

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- It appears a war of words has broken out between The Lohans and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.
While guest-hosting on “Live with Regis & Kelly” Monday, Anderson let loose on the Lohan family, including calling their E! reality show, “Living Lohan,” a “train wreck.”
“Allegedly a 14-year-old girl, looks to be about 60… I say that with concern and love,” Anderson said of Dina and Michael’s daughter, Ali. “She allegedly wants to be a singer and or actor-slash-performer of some sort, striptease person, I don’t know.”
Ali’s mother, Dina Lohan, fired back at the CNN newsman, telling OK! Magazine, “People are just cruel! This is bad karma for him.”
Anderson kept the war of words going on his show, “AC360,” last night, responding to Dina.
“Let me just reiterate, I feel bad for the 14-year-old daughter. She seems like a nice person, but she should be a kid, not in a [reality show],” Anderson said.
Ali’s father, and Dina’s ex-husband, Michael Lohan, came to the teenager’s defense on Wednesday, sounding off to Access Hollywood about the TV host.
“I think Anderson Cooper is an opinionated, hypocritical idiot who should be an adult and keep his opinion to himself,” Michael told Access. “He is the last person to judge anyone, when he and his own family have their own issues.”
