She set off a firestorm for suggesting that Lindsay Lohan isn’t ready to work again after her personal problems, and Rosie O’Donnell was on the “Today” show this morning (April 26) to answer for herself.

The former talk show hostess previously stated her opinion that Lindsay is “not in a place to work,” and not “capable” of portraying Elizabeth Taylor.

And today she clarified what she meant- “I was watching Whitney Houston’s funeral, and I remember thinking, ‘Why didn’t more people say what they knew?’”

“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.”
