While I was reading another truly obnoxious statement by Michael Lohan this morning I got to thinking about who would you rather have as your dad. If you had the choice would you rather have Michael Lohan or Pimpa Joe Simpson. I left out Thora Birch's dad because no one would ever want him.
Michael spoke to Extra yesterday. Oh, they didn't call him. He called Extra. See no one actually gives a crap about Michael and so he has to interject himself whenever possible. Specifically he offered up his support to the Spears family. I'm sure he will be their spokesperson by the end of next week. He also offered up the gem that Lindsay and Adrian Grenier are only friends and that she was only at his place for an hour last week drinking water. Allegedly he gave this answer in response to a question from Extra. My guess is that he said something about it first and they prompted him for more.
Here's the thing with Michael you get a pure asshole who can't get along with his ex and would just ignore his kids if they didn't make any money. If he couldn't make a living and get famous off his kids, they would be lucky to here from him except at Christmas. While Pimpa might like to watch his daughters, Michael seems like the kind who want to join in.
Pimpa is harmless. He is a perv and he makes lots of stupid decisions as a manager, but ONLY when it comes to things involving his daughters. He needs to stop managing them because he cannot delineate between personal and professional with them. No manager would have ever let that movie open. They also wouldn't try and stage such obvious publicity ploys.
Pimpa does a really good job when he is not emotionally attached to the project. Women's Murder Club is an example of this. The show probably should have been canceled, but instead he turned into something that (a) still has some episodes left (b) is being renewed (c) and is one of the highest rated new shows.
As much crap as I give Pimpa, and I'm not going to stop, I know that at if I were his child he would at least care about me, and if I didn't want to "sing" or "act" he would still care about me. Michael on the other hand would probably forget my name and move on to the next kid.
