There's apparently more to the Lohan family than just Lindsay.

The troubled actress' mother Dina confirmed to People that E! will begin production on October 30 on a previously reported reality series starring other members of the Lohan family.

"There are so many misconceptions about me and my family," Dina told People.  "I'm setting the record straight."

The untitled series, which is scheduled to shoot in and around New York City, will reportedly star Dina and her two children not named Lindsay -- 14-year-old daughter Ali and 11-year-old son Cody -- and focus on Ali's burgeoning singing and acting career as well as her mom's role as manager.

"It's about empowering women to be successful single mothers.  About being in the limelight without compromising motherhood," Dina told People.  "It's about what I do, how you can be successful, and be a single mom and fulfilling your kids' dreams. Working is my sole source of income."

Ali won't be the only starlet whose career Dina will have her hands on, as other performers will also be featured in the E! series.

"It won't just be following my family around like other shows," Dina told People.  "It'll show me cultivating careers, going to soccer practice. I'm a big supporter of domestic violence charities, so they'll show that. Then they'll show Cody at soccer practice. Ali going to school and in the studio. It'll encompass everything. You'll see me having five business meetings in the city."

In addition to serving as its star, Dina will also be the show's executive producer, according to People.

"We want it just to be real," Dina told People about the show.  "It's okay if it's not as crazy as the tabloids make it."

Dina's oldest daughter Lindsay has fueled the tabloids' fire for much of the year.  Following a string of substance abuse incidents, Lindsay was arrested for drunk driving in May and checked into a rehabilitation center for the second time in five months. 

However it only got worse once she got out, as Lindsay was arrested again in late July and charged with possession of cocaine; driving under the influence of a narcotic; and driving with a suspended license.  The arrest landed her a two-month stint at Utah's Cirque Lodge -- where she was recently released -- as well as one day in prison; 10 days of community service and three years probation.

Dina said Lindsay could appear in an episode of the new E! reality series, but it would be nothing more than a cameo.

"Lindsay is a family member and will lend a helping hand if Ali asks her, when she's in the recording studio," Dina told People.
