Rosie O'Donnell is talking about Lindsay Lohan once again on The Today Show ... this time comparing her to Whitney Houston.
Earlier this week, the outspoken 50-year-old talk show host came under fire after saying that Lilo shouldn't have been given the role of Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's upcoming Liz and Dick.
This time around, Rosie said the following to Matt Lauer:
- "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 is not talented, I think she's quite talented."
In our X17 poll, we asked if you agreed with Rosie's comment about Lindsay being "incapable" of playing Elizabeth Taylor.
Overwhelming, 62% agreed with Rosie, 19% of you thought another actress should play Elizabeth Taylor and 10% said O'Donnell was being too harsh.
