You can put people down all day on the radio and television, it’s the easiest thing to do. And that’s exactly what TV personality Rosie O’Donnell has done to Lindsay Lohan during a recent on “The Today Show.” Lindsay’s father, Michael Lohan called in to talk with 92.3NOW/New York this morning about the feud.
During a recent interview on “The Today Show,” Rosie blasted Lindsay for her new role as Elizabeth Taylor in the movie “Liz and Dick”. She believes that Lindsay is “incapable” of portraying a great role with all that she has done over the past few years.
“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.” – Rosie O’Donnell
Today, Michael Lohan went to town on Rosie’s decision to call his daughter “incapable.” He made it very clear that if Rosie herself didn’t make mistakes or had some low moments in her career, that she might have a right to say something — which clearly isn’t the case. Rosie O’Donnell has struggled in the public eye with her personal life, her show, etc. So to go on about Linsday’s “incapability” is a rather low blow, not to mention a disappointing slap in the face as 92.3 NOW’s Sarah Lee put it.
“I’m not gonna slam her. Like I said, if she didn’t make mistakes herself, then she can make all the comments she wants,” says Michael. He continued, “She’s been down this road. She had problems with her marriage, she had problems with her shows. She’s blasted people like Donald Trump and a lot of other people before. You think she would have learned.”
Back in the day, mini Lohan starred in the blockbuster hit remake “The Parent Trap,” and her first interview was with none other than Ms. O’Donnell. Now it seems the woman who spoke to Lindsay when she was just a pre-teen building her career kicked her when she was down.
“You could spend a month putting people down on the radio…look at what I’ve been through,” Mr. Lohan says. He’s got a point. What good is it projecting our own insecurities and issues upon others?
Despite the comments, Michael Lohan assures us that Lindsay is moving forward and isn’t letting any harsh words get in her way. “She just finished up Glee…she had a great time.” Michael continues, “now she has this role for Liz Taylor. She’s not a kid anymore… she’s 26-years-old. Pray for her, don’t beat her up.”
