As usual, Rosie O’Donnell is no stranger to stirring up trouble. On the “Today” show last week she met with Matt Lauer and Ann Currie to discuss Lindsay Lohan again.
It’s created a fire storm online, said Ann Currie. “Are you surprised by the reaction?”
“I was actually. I didn’t think anything of it.” “ I went out to lunch and then I came home.” O’Donnell was actually surprised that perhaps Lindsay Lohan and her family would be upset by her comments?
“I did meet her when she was young and on my show,” said O’Donnell. “And then we’ve all seen what’s happened in the last decade and it’s tragic.”
“I don’t want to make it sound like everything you said about her is harsh,” said Lauer. In your blog yesterday you said, “Lindsay Lohan is worth saving. She’s the only one who can do it before it’s too late. I hope she finds her value off camera and then when she returns on camera, she’ll wow us all once more at peace.”
Then O’Donnell had to ruin her kind words by comparing Lindsay Lohan to Whitney Houston. Slamming both stars, she claimed that Houston was irresponsible and caught up in a world of addiction. “Watching Whitney Houston’s funeral thinking why wouldn’t people say what they knew,” said O’Donnell. “We all knew when she would not show up to do this show, not to do my show.”
Immediately she compared Houston to Lohan. “To look at Lindsay Lohan you can’t help but feel for her.”
Matt Lauer wondered what this knew unapologetic Rosie O’Donnell interview would stir up. Rosie was right about one thing, “There’s gonna be a whole nother controversy.”
