Rosie O'Donnell Slams Lindsay Lohan's Reality Show: "It's a Tragedy on Every Level"
"The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level," O'Donnell, 51, tweeted to her 700,000 plus followers. "I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes – n sees what we all do."
The OWN series follows 27-year-old Lohan's journey following her sixth rehab stint as she relocates from the West Coast to NYC. On the Sunday, April 6, episode of the series, the Mean Girls star admitted she had relapsed shortly after completing rehab last summer.
"I just had so much guilt," Lohan confessed on the show after initially denying she had indulged in a glass of wine. "It took me a bit to, like, finally just be, like, 'Why am I holding this in? Yeah. F--k it. I screwed up. I screwed up, and that's okay, but now what can I do so that it doesn't happen again?' That's part of the process."
Though Lohan has yet to respond, she shared an Instagram picture of herself Tuesday, touting her upcoming gig as guest co-host on The View. O'Donnell was a moderator on the ABC talk show from 2006 to 2007, before breaking her contract early after a public falling-out with Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Barbara Walters.
O'Donnell, for her part, then debuted The Rosie Show on the Oprah Winfrey Network in October 2011. The talk show lasted only five months and was canceled in March 2012.
