Michael Lohan

Rosie O'Donnell

Is a Talentless FAILURE

Rosie O'Donnell
is in no position to bash Lindsay Lohan -- at least according to Lindsay's loyal father, who claims Rosie's a washed-up failure at life ... who only stayed famous because she adopted a bunch of kids.

Michael Lohan tells TMZ, "Who the hell is Rosie O'Donnell to judge anyone, especially Lindsay, who has far more talent than Rosie ever had?"

He says, "Lindsay's talent isn't limited to being a comedian or getting notoriety for adopting and raising a bunch of kids. Sure, [Lindsay] has her pitfalls, but she is 25, and how old is Rosie?" (50, in case you're wondering).

Michael adds, "Two failed talk shows, a failed marriage, etc ... He/she who is without sin. May they cast the first stone."

As we previously reported, Rosie went on "Today" this morning, claiming Lindsay hasn't made a single good film since she was sixteen ... and isn't capable of portraying Liz Taylor in her new movie.

Wait a second here. Let's get this straight, Rosie O'Donell is no joke. This woman has been a staple of social media/film and human rights for YEARS and has well established herself as a giant in this business. She is WELL respected in the Hollywood community. I'm sorry but the Lohan family is a sensationalized dysfunctional family who is clinging desperately to the once notoriety that their daughter had many years ago. People don't want to accept that Lindsay Lohan, the young starlet with talent and all that potential is no more. I know a lot of young stars who made great films when they were young and just faded as they aged. Mr. Lohan only further ads to the shame of this family's demise by making these kinds of statements towards a Hollywood powerhouse.

Good Lord, not even 24 hours since the announcement and Mike Lohan is already bombarding the media. This whole thing is a disaster in the making. Blohan knew for 2 months she had the part and STILL screwed up. Saw an interview with the producer, and he is either an extremely clueless about Lohan's behavior and addictions or an idiot. Did he know he was taking on the whole fvcking family?

I am not a fan of Rosie, but she has been FAR more successful than LL ever was. Look at the TV/film credits, and then that she had her own show for 8 years.
NO CONTEST.

I don't like Rosie O'Donnel, BUT she has won 12 Emmy Awards. So, yeah, Michael, she has talent.

Great, now daddy is getting involved in this slap fight. Lindsay must be so proud. Shouldn't he be in a straight jacket somewhere ?

I usually don't agree with anything MiLo has to say. But I think it was unfair of Ro To make those comments. Let Lindsay do the movie, then judge her. If she blows at acting the director will find some one else. Give her a chance.

i don't think i've ever come across a predicament like this...these three people are scraping the bottom of the barrel. michael is a loser..mooching off of lindsey...terrible excuse of a father. Rosie is just a shrew. someone who is always screaming about some gay cause. both of them need to STFU. lindsey is not qualified to play liz. never in a million years. even while Liz was at her worst, Lindsey couldn't touch her. She's missing that one key ingredient called CLASS. Rosie and Michael need to fall off the face of the earth.

Rosie takes care of her kids, something Mikey doesn't. Rosie has money, none of the Lohan's do. Rosie is right on this one.
