During her "Today" show appearance Tuesday, Rosie O'Donnell made it clear she doesn't think Lindsay Lohan should play Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime TV movie. "I think she needs a lot of help. She needs a lot of time away," the typically outspoken O'Donnell said. She continued, "She's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including 'SNL.' She was out and not in rehearsal. I think she's not in a place to work."
Lindsay Lohan's rep Steve Honig fired back, issuing a statement to PerezHilton.com that said, "I think Rosie should focus on her own career instead of worrying about everyone else's."
And now Michael Lohan, Lindsay's father, has a few strong words for O'Donnell. In an email to The Huffington Post, Michael wrote:
From what I remember, the Bible says for he/she who is without sin, let them cast the first stone and judge not, lest you be judged. With that being said, is Rosie in ANY position to judge anyone? Failed marriage, two failed shows, slamming other celebs and high profile people. PLEASE! My daughter and even I, may have had our issues in life, but it's about making things right and turning things around, right Rosie? I was and am the first one to point out my own faults, Lindsay's and even others' when we are wrong, but when we are not, I will fight tooth and nail for what's right! In this case, Rosie, you are wrong. So why don't you, and all in agreement with you, just sit back. Shut up and see if Lindsay proves herself before blabbing your unwarranted opinions.
O'Donnell also called Donny Deutsch a "crackhead" for proclaiming Lindsay "our generation's Elizabeth Taylor." Click here to see what else O'Donnell said about Lohan.
