The producers of the new movie Dogs in Pocketbooks better have pretty deep pockets. That's because once again, Dina Lohan has threatened to sue over someone allegedly using her daughter's likeness. The film is a "screwball comedy," according to screenwriter Charles Casillo, who says its star, model Lydia Hearst, "will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media - a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan." Cue Mama Lohan beating a path to the family lawyer, Stephanie Ovadia, who successfully settled the suit with e*Trade over the "milkaholic" baby named Lindsay. Ovadia told TMZ, "They are again using her likeness without her being compensated." Casillo is subsequently eating those words, now changing his story and saying the film is based on a composite of starlet whackjobs, including Britney Spears, Marilyn Monroe, Paris Hilton, Jean Harlowe and...Lindsay Lohan. Meanwhile, Hearst, whose naturally blond hair was recently dyed red, took to Twitter to distance herself from the project, writing, "Just so we are all clear. My hair is Red because I am the new face of Schwarzkopf color. I am a model. I dyed my hair to front the campaign." She later continued, "I am currently filming 'Two Jacks' directed by Bernard Rose. My next project is 'Catwalk' by Tony Hickox... At this time I am not officially signed onto any other projects. Thank you." What a dog-gone shame.
