It's been a couple of days since Rosie O'Donnell slammed Lindsay Lohan on Today and the controversy continues.
O'Donnell said Lindsay wasn't right for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in a biopic about the late actress: "Because she's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including SNL. She was out and not at rehearsal. I think she's not in a place to work. I don't think she's right for the role and I don't think she's capable at this point of doing what's needed."
Those comments caused a bit of a stir. Michael Lohan fired back at Rosie, telling Gossip Cop: "My daughter and even I may have had our issues in life, but it's about making things right and turning things around ... Rosie, you are wrong. So why don't you just sit back, shut up and see if Lindsay proves herself before blabbing your unwarranted opinions."
That was Tuesday.
Fast forward to Thursday on Today and Rosie isn't backing down. Instead, she elaborated on her earlier comments: "I [was] watching Whitney Houston's funeral, and I remember thinking why didn't more people say what they knew? We all knew, when she would not show up to do this show, not show up to do my show, we watched Being Bobby Brown and it was like watching Sid and Nancy, they were people who were in the throes of addiction. But all that anyone cared about was that the show was getting ratings, not that this woman, this talented individual, this human being, this mother, this daughter, was worth saving."
"To look at Lindsay Lohan you can't help but feel for her. I don't think she's untalented, I think she's quite talented."
Fair or unfair?
