Former dancer Dina Lohan, who rose to fame as the “momager” to her famous daughter Lindsay, has a net worth that’s in the red—negative $1.3 million, to be exact.
Lohan, who will appear on the second season of Celebrity Big Brother premiering tonight, has been on multiple reality shows prior to entering the BB house. Seeing as her net worth is in the hole, she could probably use the $250,000 grand prize that the show’s winner will take home on finale night.

Donata Melina Nicolette “Dina” Lohan was born in New York City but is renowned around Long Island for being the mom of a celebrity child. Lohan is said to have given up professional dancing and acting for motherhood, and later, to manage the career of her super-famous daughter, Lindsay.
Lohan is sometimes known as “The White Oprah” due to the fact that she loves to talk and help her daughter and her friends with problems. “I love to talk,” Dina told Star. “Lindsay’s friends call me ‘The White Oprah’ because they all come to me with their problem. I’m like the mom of these kids in the business!”

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Lohan owed exactly $1,492,784.21 on the two-story home, stemming from the loan she reportedly borrowed against the property.
