That should've been a clue. The next thing we hear is my interview is canceled because Lindsay doesn't feel up to it. She has a lot of problems ... I said, 'Poor girl, I hope when she feels like it she will do it with us.' So today I pick up the paper and find out Lindsay]is sitting for an interview with Jay Leno.

In an Access Hollywood exclusive, Lohan responded to O’Donnell’s comments on Wednesday saying,


“It’s funny that someone you don’t know at all can say something so intrusive and so knowing,”

Lohan also shared with Access Hollywood how O’Donnell was one of her first interviews as a child actress.
“You know, I did one of my first interviews with her when I was little. I was so excited,” Lindsay told Shaun.

“Does this kind of change your feelings about her?” Shaun asked?

“She should base her opinions when she meets someone,” Lindsay said.

 


On Thursday, O’Donnell appeared on Today and further explained her initial comments, by comparing Lohan to Whitney Houston. Access Hollywood transcribed excerpts from the appearance.
