Rosie O'Donnell has branded Lindsay Lohan's reality TV show "a tragedy - on every level."
The outspoken star is unimpressed with the Mean Girls actress's antics on her OWN docu-series, Lindsay, but hopes the troubled starlet will see the error of her ways by watching her behavior on the show. The 52-year-old comedienne and actress slammed the series on Twitter on Monday, tweeting, "The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level. I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes - n sees what we all do [sic]."
Lindsay Lohan feels like a "prisoner."
The 27-year-old star left rehab over seven months ago, following the completion of court-mandated treatment, and began working on documentary series Lindsay for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, but in the first trailer (seen after the jump!) for the show she's seen breaking down as she admits she feels trapped by the cameras.
"I don't want them following me to an AA [alcoholics anonymous] meeting," she said, sitting in her apartment with a companion. When asked if she ever feels like a prisoner, she added, "Yes, all the time."
The Mean Girls actress opened up about her wild past and claimed she's not interested in partying anymore as she's already done everything there is to do. "There's nothing left in a having a drink for me. What's left in that feeling? Nothing. There's no party that I haven't gone to, there's no person I haven't hung out with. There's no situation I haven't been exposed to," she explained.
Word about Lindsay Lohan's upcoming reality show initially surfaced when Oprah was rumored to have problems dealing with the troubled star, but things have been unusually quiet for Lohan otherwise (with all the Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, and Kardashian stories lately - who can blame her for taking a back seat in the tabloids?). Naturally, to drum up some publicity for her series, OWN - Oprah's network which is both behind and set to air the project - has released a photo of Lohan to promote it.
Taken as if someone were either creepily lurking Lohan from a corner or simply catching a private-yet-candid photo, the 27-year-old has got her serious model face on, with her hair perfectly coiffed and styled to the T.

Elton John says that reality TV stars should be assassinated.
The 66-year-old singer thinks these kinds of shows - which he has been a vocal critic of - attract "nightmare people" who are just hungry for fame. "With reality television, you get all these nightmare people who want to be successful, when you really want them to be assassinated," Elton said, speaking on BBC World satellite radio.
The "Home Again" hitmaker - whose 31st studio album The Diving Board deals with issues surrounding entertainers finding fame young - thinks there are many talented individuals who end up spiralling out of control because they would "do anything" for fame. "It's about someone who's attracted to fame no matter what. They want fame whatever the consequences, and they'll do anything to get there," he said when quizzed about his album.
He thinks Mean Girls star Lindsay Lohan - who has been to rehab on a number of occasions to combat substance abuse problems, most recently she underwent 90-days of court ordered treatment at the Betty Ford Clinic and then the Cliffside Malibu center - was a "victim of success." He added, "Lindsay Lohan, unfortunately, who had a great career as an actress and as a recording artist, she had a hit album... Suddenly, everything has fallen to bits because of the drugs. Her parents were a nightmare. She has become a victim of success and she wants success, no matter how much [it costs].''
Lindsay Lohan is in serious talks to star in a new TV series.
The 27-year-old actress, who completed 90 days of court-ordered treatment in rehab at the end of July and is determined to get her career back on track, has been approached by Danny McBride to star in a comedy he is developing for HBO. A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Lindsay really hit it off with the actor and producer, 36, when she filmed a cameo role for his show Eastbound & Down recently and he was so impressed with her work ethic that he thinks she is the perfect actress to work on his upcoming project.
Danny is developing the comedy series that will revolve around a high school with his producing partner Jody Hill. The Canyons star apparently loves the concept and is really hoping it works out.
The Mean Girls actress has enjoyed a career renaissance since leaving Cliffside rehab center in Malibu last month. Lindsay has successfully guest-hosted Chelsea Lately, as well as pouring her feelings out to Oprah Winfrey in a revealing interview. The star has also inked a $2 million deal with Oprah and her OWN network to make an eight-part documentary about the ups and downs of her career.
Lindsay Lohan has laughed off rumors she will appear on Celebrity Big Brother.
The 26-year-old actress has been the subject of speculation recently, with many claiming she would appear on the British reality show. The Liz & Dick star has dismissed the idea, claiming she wants to focus on breaking into musical theater.
"I'm busy acting... I'm a singer. I'd love to do a musical. Something like Mamma Mia!" she told Heat magazine.
Lindsay was tied to Celebrity Big Brother after she arrived in London - where the reality show is filmed - over New Year, but an appearance hasn't materialized since the new series was launched two weeks ago. It has since emerged that she was in the UK because she was invited to attend a Southeast Asian prince's New Year's Eve party - and she was reportedly paid $100,000.
Lindsay Lohan allegedly refused to film the final scenes for a home improvement series despite receiving $200,000 worth of renovations for free.
The Liz & Dick actress - who is currently trying to pay back a huge tax bill - reportedly refused to film a big reveal moment after her home was given an expensive revamp as part of the Bravo series Million Dollar Decorators.
Sources told gossip website TMZ.com that the 26-year-old troubled starlet agreed to take part in the series earlier this year in exchange for her rental home - which costs her $8,000 a month - getting a free makeover worth an estimated $200,000. The actress was said to have initially cooperated with producers and filmed a furniture-shopping segment in March, along with other footage at the house. But once the renovations were completed, Lindsay allegedly stopped communicating with the show's team. Insiders say that the actress is still living in the house but it is now too messy to be filmed and producers are said to be planning to use other clips to cobble together a big reveal moment since Lindsay won't take part. The episode is scheduled to hit screens early next year.
Lindsay Lohan wants to star in her own comedy series. The 26-year-old actress is reportedly hoping to get her career back on track by proving her talent on her own sitcom after she received mixed reviews for her latest movie Liz & Dick.
A source told gossip website RadarOnline.com that Lindsay was advised to try her hand at a comedy TV series by her close friend Charlie Sheen. "Lindsay has asked her manager and agent to look into getting her her own television sitcom. Lindsay feels that the small screen would be a great way for her to revitalize her acting career and that a comedy would be the best bet. Lindsay feels most comfortable doing comedy and it was Charlie Sheen that told her she should do it. Charlie told Lindsay that it was an easy way to make very good money and help her to get her movie career back on track. Lindsay is loving the idea of having her own sitcom and would love to play someone in a story based on her crazy life," an insider said.
The former Two And A Half Men star has been helping the troubled actress a lot recently according to reports. He is also said to have sent her a check for $100,000 to cover almost half of her hefty tax bill after they bonded during filming Scary Movie 5 together in September.
Barbara Walters has forgiven Lindsay Lohan for pulling out of their scheduled interview.
The Liz & Dick actress was due to chat to her friend about her latest movie on November 16, but cancelled and instead agreed to do interviews with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, Good Morning America and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon leaving Barbara very "disappointed: about being snubbed, but the 20/20 host has now forgiven the 26-year-old star after she apologized on TV.
Speaking to Jay Leno last night, Lindsay said she cancelled her sit down with Barbara because the timing "wasn't right, right now." She explained, "I love her, I'm a big fan of Barbara Walters. So when it's right, she knows she'll be the first person I sit down with."
The troubled actress's new PR team were said to have cancelled the interview because they feared it would focus too much on her personal problems, including her father's attempted intervention last month and her current legal issues amid reports her probation will be revoked this week.
