Rosie O'Donnell on Lindsay Lohan's reality show: It's a 'tragedy on every level'
The comedian tweeted her critique of Lohan's OWN docu-series. 'I hope one day she gets sober for real,' she wrote.
Rosie O'Donnell has discovered a "tragedy on every level" … Lindsay Lohan's reality show.
The outspoken comedian was not joking when she took to Twitter to unearth her scathing review of Lohan's OWN reality docu-series.
"The Lindsay show is a tragedy -- on every level," she tweeted Tuesday. "I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes — n sees what we all do."
The series follows the 27-year-old actress' journey moving from Los Angeles back to New York City shortly after her sixth rehab stint.
While the show focuses on Lohan's attempts to get her life under control she loses her grasp on things when she falls off the wagon for a bit. The star has pointed out that the drama on the show is caused by something else she has no control over: editing.
"Some things are taken out of context and that creates the drama and the spectacle," she told David Letterman on the "Late Show."
"I don't have control of the editing, I am producer, but I don't have control of that aspect of it," she continued. "But it's pretty raw. I mean, it's just me kind of sorting out life again and figuring things out. Taking new steps and living in like, sober-minded, it's a process."
O'Donnell, 52, may not think much of the series or Lohan for that matter. Luckily, the "Canyons" actress has a major backing O'Donnell can't nearly compete with -- Oprah Winfrey.
"To have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you are trying to pull your life together, I think that's a really difficult thing," the media mogul told Letterman after he and Lohan spontaneously called her.
"We're really pleased she's making some progress," O added.
I'll be Lindsay Lohan's sober coach for one night
Andy Cohen will be earning his one-day sober chip this week because TMZ has learned he will not partake in alcohol during Thursday night's "Watch What Happens Live" ... as a show of support to his guest ... Lindsay Lohan.
For those non-"WWHL" fans ... the show always features a bartender, and cocktails are served throughout the show to both the guests and the audience ... and, of course, to Andy.
But according to our sources, Andy has vowed to not dabble in the libations for the evening, so Lindsay isn't tempted. It's unclear if there will be an open bar for everyone else, or if it will be a teetotalling night for all.
Maybe he'll intro himself. Hi, my name is Andy, and ...
