Lindsay Lohan’s Rep: Rosie O’Donnell Needs to ‘Focus on Her Own Career’ — EXCLUSIVE

ALTRosie O’Donnell may not think that Lindsay Lohan is fit to play Elizabeth Taylor in her new Lifetime movie, but Lohan thinks the Queen of Nice’s comments on Today were, well, not so nice. After O’Donnell publicly slammed Lohan on the morning show Tuesday — saying that the 25-year-old has “had a lot of trouble doing every single movie, including [Saturday Night Live] … She’s not in a place to work” — Lohan’s publicist has come to the actress’ defense.

“I think Rosie should be focused on her own career right now and not everyone else’s,” Steve Honig, Lohan’s publicist, tells exclusively. “It’s a shame that she has to be so cruel towards another human being in order to keep herself in the news.”

So the feud begins. Who will win: The Queen of Nice — who said Lohan “needs a lot of time away” — or the Mean Girl? Your serve O’Donnell. What ya’ got?
