Poor Lindsay. The girl is out there, doing her best, trying to make the whole movie star thing happen again, and people just love to throw them stones. And no, I can’t tell if that’s sarcasm or not either. See, Lindsay did all this to herself, and she’s still doing it to herself, but at the same time, it seems that in her warped, meth-addled brain, she’s really trying. And then someone like Rosie O’Donnell, someone that Lindsay thought was on her side, goes and talks some smack about her. That does have to sting a little, right?
For the record, here’s what Rosie had to say about Lindsay:
Rosie was on the “Today” show with Matt Lauer and Donny Deutsch … when it was announced that Lohan will play Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie, “Liz and Dick.”
O’Donnell instantly made her feelings known — “I feel very sorry for her … I think she needs a lot of time away … 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.”
When Deutsch suggested, “She’s our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor” … O’Donnell lost it.
“You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was sixteen.”
Rosie continued, “I don’t think she’s right for the role and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.”
And here’s the report about Lindsay’s hurt feelings:
Lindsay Lohan is in utter shock after Rosie O’Donnell bashed her on live television yesterday — telling friends, she’s always had a great relationship with Rosie … or so she thought.
Sources close to LiLo tell TMZ, there was never any bad blood between the two actresses — in fact, Lindsay and Rosie were always on great terms … Lindsay would even say hello to Rosie whenever she saw her at various events. Rosie was always nice to her.
According to sources, Lindsay always had a special fondness for Rosie — because one of Lindsay’s first ever talk show appearances was on Rosie’s old show back in 1998 … when a 12-year-old Lindsay was promoting “The Parent Trap.”
But even though she’s surprised … Lindsay isn’t upset — because Rosie’s not the only person who doubts Lindsay’s comeback … starting with her upcoming Liz Taylor role.
As far as Lindsay’s concerned — Rosie’s just another hater she’s gotta prove wrong.
So yeah, Rosie didn’t really say anything that bad, but if they really have the kind of relationship that Lindsay thought they did, I could see where people could be upset.
But here’s the real story: you see that picture above, the one of Lindsay and Ali out shopping? I used it instead of my new favorite picture of Ol’ Flop Lip because I went shopping yesterday too, and I wanted to mention it because it made me so happy. I got some skirts and tops and all that, but I also got a bra fitting, and it was insane. Apparently the bras I’ve been wearing are a way different size than the ones I should be wearing, and apparently I can’t find the bras I should be wearing at any of the places I’ve bought bras in the past. I managed to buy a few though, but also – wait for it – I bought a coat for next winter. And listen. It’s a purple knee-length pea coat. And it has unicorns on the buttons. Unicorns. And my purple unicorn coat and titty holsters are far more important than Lindsay Lohan’s feelings*.
**Well, ok, maybe.
