Rosie O'Donnell

I Don't Want Lindsay to DIE

... Like Whitney Houston

4/26/2012 6:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news



Rosie O'Donnell believes ... if Lindsay Lohan doesn't change her life ... she will end up just like Whitney Houston ... dead.

Rosie went back on the "Today" show this morning to expand on why she doesn't believe Lindsay should have been cast as Liz Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie ... or ANY role for that matter.

Ro suggested Lindsay is heading down a similar path as Whitney ... and believes the only way she can be saved is if she takes time away from the ruthless Hollywood machine.

Ro also explained why she feels obligated to speak out about Lindsay .... saying, "Watching Whitney Houston's funeral I remember thinking, 'Why didn't more people say what they knew?' We all knew."

She continued, "We watched 'Being Bobby Brown' ... it was like watching Sid and Nancy ... they were people in the throes of addiction. But all anyone cared about was that the show was getting ratings."

"To look at Lindsay Lohan, you can't help but feel for her ... and I do not think she's untalented, I think she's quite talented."

These people commenting referring to Rosie or any woman as "fat" "lard" "gross" need to be careful about contributing to the stigma that thin is beautiful and that a women needs to look a certain way to be validated. We'll see how well your daughters take to the same kind of bullying and abuse when their time comes. What goes around comes around, trust me.

Rosie is 100% correct. Most of you people hating on Rosie probably didn't watch the Today episode in question. Why is it so bad for someone to express concern over Lindsay's health. You enablers should be GLAD that someone cares. It's painfully obvious that her family only sees Lindsay as an ATM machine. What are you enablers going to say when Lindsay OD's? That Rosie drove her to it? Get real, folks. And calling someone fat does nothing but show the world that you are a bigot.

Rosie didn't just go on TV and slam Lindsay. She and 2 others were being interviewed and they were asked a question. All she did was answer it honestly. It was the LOHAN'S that made a big deal of it, and is now forcing her to defend what she said. If the LOHAN'S would have not said anything, this would be a non issue.

Remember what the white devil dope did to Corey Haim as well.He was Like Lindsay except 12 years older.He thought he was still in his late teens!same hair same clothes it was like a time warp!IF she lives past 27 that could also be her fate if she doesn't kick the habits.

Pot meet Kettle. Kettle, Pot.

Rosie's a talentless pig.

As I'm in the "biz" I know her M.O. and she is NOT a nice person. And somehow, she just keeps FAILING UP?!?!?!?

I've never understood how anyone can think she is, she's just a vindictive beeyotch who would trample her own mother if mom got in her way. And that rhino ain't someone you'd want trampling you...

Go away Rosie. Stay away.

TMZ..it's "THROES" of addiction, not "THROWS."

Get a literate proofreader, please.

Rosie is right, however, why is she talking about this?

It's not your business Rosie. You yourself should lose some serious fat if YOU don't want to die too early. Food is your choice of drug.
