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."

Why can't the "journalists" at TMZ spell correctly? It is "throes", not "throws" of addiction. Usually the real spelling mistakes are reserved for the B team (IE, the weekened crew), but the coed, frat boys during the week suck at spelling and grammar as well.

"Throws" of addiction doesn't even make sense. It is THROES.

She might be right, but she has become so bitter and angry lately. No fun at all anymore.

She needs to lighten up

Liz Taylor was a HUGE alcoholic and addicted to prescription drugs. One could say she is responsible for Michael Jacksons prescription drug addiction. Who better to play an addict than an addict

The issue isn't the motivation behind why Rosie is saying this stuff.. She was asked in an interview and responded to the question, then asked for this interview. Frankly, I do not care why or how she came to this opinion...which again, she gave because someone ASKED her what her opinion was.


The fact is - she is RIGHT about this specific question. Lindsay does NOT need to be hanging at bars OR working in movies right now.


She needs to be in therapy and getting treatment.


She needs to deal, not only with her drug addiction, but her mental health issues.


I don't care if it was Andrea Yates (the wacko who killed her 5 kids) who offered this opinion... I would still agree with the opinion.


This is NOT about Rosie; it is about Lindsay.


Rosie is a vile individual - everyone knows that, but that's NOT the point here.


Lindsay's fans are as much of enablers as her nutjob parental units... and they're going to keep enabling her to her death...

If only Dina Lohan had been even half as sensible about Lindsay before her career was trashed? If only.

Yeah, Lindsay should live until she's 95 wearing diapers and an iron lung. Live your own life and start being less critical and try to find the good in dying young.

MADISYN, LIAISON TO THE H8TURDS!!    

HELLp: "If Rosie really cared about Lindsay, she would have done this privately and face-to-face".


Damn! If only Matt Lauer wasn't doing a TV news segment called "Ask the Professions" on The Today Show and had asked Rosie OFF CAMERA to give an opinion on Blohan, Rosie could have done so, without the fanfare. For shame!
(too much sarcasm?)
