Hoover described Rosie’s remarks yesterday on Access Hollywood as a “war of words on Lindsay Lohan.”

Lohan has been cast as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s new movie Liz & Dick. “Is it a good idea to cast her in this movie?” asked Matt Lauer on the “Today” show, with good old Rosie poking her nose where it simply didn’t belong once again.

“No,” said Rosie. Rosie jumped on Lohan stating, “I feel very sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of help she needs a lot of time away.”

She doesn‘t believe Lohan should be given any second chances. Of all people, Rosie O‘Donnell needs to take a good look in the mirror.

According to Rosie, Lohan doesn’t deserve the role, “Because she’s had a lot of trouble doing every single movie including SNL.”

“She was out and not at rehearsal and I think she’s not in a place to work,” barked O’Donnell. “I don’t think she’s right for the role and I don’t think she’s capable at this point.”

“I think Rosie’s coming from a good place,” said Kit Hoover. “But the way she’s saying it looks like she’s dissing Lindsay and I don’t think that’s what she’s trying to do.”

While it sure didn’t look like she was complimenting the young woman. Billy Bush thought that the “Today” show made a wise choice to have Rosie on because it made for good television. Bush said, “They brought Rosie in for a good reason on the “Today” show.  Professionals say it can be called the lightening rod segment, the fire-starter segment.”

Afterwards, Billy Bush claimed LL’s dad Michael fired back at Rosie with these words for her on twitter.  “Of ALL people, I can’t believe YOU would judge my daughter or her ability. Second chances aren’t up to you, they’re up to God.”

Lindsay Lohan herself was too kind when asked how she felt about the nasty comments. “It’s funny that someone that you don’t know at all can say something so intrusive and so knowing,” said Lohan.

Kit Hoover closed the segment praising Lohan, “I think she’s going to be great in this movie.”
