Rosie O’Donnell: ‘Lindsay Lohan Shouldn’t Be Playing Elizabeth Taylor Or Anyone’
Thanks to being fired from the sinking ship known as OWN, Rosie O’Donnell has lots of free time on her hands, so naturally she stopped by TODAY this morning to talk shit about Lindsay Lohan officially landing the role of Elizabeth Taylor in a Lifetime made-for-TV movie:
“I feel very sorry for her,’’ she said. “I think she needs a lot of help. She needs a lot of time away.”
Lohan’s appearance on “Saturday Night Live” last month received mixed reviews.
“On ‘SNL’ it wasn’t as though she delivered,” said O’Donnell. “People watched expecting, hoping, wishing, but she needs a lot of help.’’

“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 to portray that character,’’ she said. “I think the interest level in her has waned significantly.’’
[Donny] Deutsch then declared that Lohan has the potential to be the Elizabeth Taylor of this generation, on and off-screen.
“You’re out of your mind,’’ Rosie replied.
Here’s the Catch-22 of this situation: On the one hand, Rosie O’Donnell is absolutely right. On the other hand, she’s Rosie O’Donnell and everyone hates her.

And for the record, I just want to know the number of times without a single mention of the acts involved. I’m still trying to recover from the holistic jizz labor adventure this morning. I can still feel the shiny red pants…
