“It takes two to feud,” Oprah said in her recent sit down with rapper 50 Cent. Celebrities have been feuding as long as there has been the notion of celebrity or, you know, I am guessing that’s true. Sometimes the feuds have significant merit, sometimes they’re just straight up dumb. This week I am going to dive into the feud that brought Lindsay Lohan and Rosie O’Donnell to this boxing ring known as life or, well, celebrity gossip blogs at the very least.
Celebs in Feud: Rosie O’Donnell and Lindsay Lohan
Length of Feud: 2 months and counting, probably
Details of Feud: We all know Lindsay Lohan is currently filming Liz & Dick for Lifetime, based on the life of Elizabeth Taylor and we can’t wait for it, right? Rosie O’Donnell just wasn’t having it, though. Back in April while on the Today show, Rosie said, “The last thing she did good, she was 16. I don’t think she’s right for the role and I don’t think she’s capable at this point to portray that character.” Lindsay fired back at her by saying, “It’s funny that someone you don’t know at all can say something so intrusive and so knowing.”
Fun Feud Facts: Dina Lohan said of the incident, “I just wanted to know if Rosie O’Donnell played The Parent Trap [for] her children and she said Lindsay hasn’t done any movies, you know, since she’s 16, but that’s absolutely not factual.”
Feud Settled: No word if they’ve made up, but I don’t think either is losing sleep over this.
Other Feuds: Rosie’s most famous feud was with Donald Trump, but she’s had a couple of others including David Letterman and Oprah. Lindsay is no stranger to the celebrity feud, either. Paris Hilton, George Lopez and Avril Lavigne are some notches on her feuding belt.
Side Notes: The writers of Rise of the Planet of the Apes have been tapped to write Jurassic Park 4. Might I suggest this casting?
