    Rosie O'Donnell Compares Lindsay Lohan to Whitney Houston

    Rosie O'Donnell isn't done talking about Lindsay Lohan.

    The comedian was back on Today this morning to address the controversial comments she had made about the actress portraying Elizabeth Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime TV movie.

    To quickly recap, during an appearance on the NBC morning show earlier this week, O'Donnell remarked that it was not a good idea for Lohan to do the flick "because she's had a lot of trouble doing every single movie," adding, "I feel sorry for her. I think she needs a lot of help. She needs a lot of time away."

    Lohan, in turn, lashed back and told E! News exclusively, "I think Rosie should focus on her own career and stop worrying about everyone else's."

    Meanwhile, O'Donnell expanded on her thoughts about Lohan on Thursday with Today cohosts Matt Lauer and Ann Curry, bringing up Whitney Houston in the process.

    "Watching Whitney Houston's funeral, I remember thinking, Why didn't more people say what they knew?" asked O'Donnell. "We all knew, when she would not show up to this show, not show up to do my show. We watched Being Bobby Brown and it was like watching Sid and Nancy. They were people in the throes of addiction. But all that anyone cared about was that the show was getting ratings, not that this woman...was worth saving."

    However, despite her obvious concern for Lohan, O'Donnell was quick to point out that she does think the troubled star is "quite talented."

    Your move, Lindsay.
