    Safe to say Lindsay Lohan probably isn't too happy about her latest reality show review.

    Rosie O'Donnell took to Twitter on Tuesday to slam the OWN docu-series Lindsay, which follows the actress as she moves from L.A. to NYC while navigating the limelight under the pesky eye of the prying paps, following her sixth attempt at getting sober.

    But in typical Lindsay fashion, it's been a bumpy road to recovery, as viewers have seen the starlet struggle and even admit to drinking post-rehab in a recent episode.

    "The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level," O'Donnell tweeted today. "I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes - n sees what we all do."

    Lohan recently opened up about her reality show while speaking with David Letterman and admitted that things aren't always what they seem on TV.

    "It's edited very differently," the 27-year-old actress told the Late Show host. "Some things are taken out of context and that creates the drama and the spectacle. I don't have control of the editing, I am producer, but I don't have control of that aspect of it. But it's pretty raw. I mean, it's just me kind of sorting out life again and figuring things out. Taking new steps and living in like, sober-minded, it's a process."

    While filming, Lohan is followed 24/7 by a TV crew, which she admitted has been "really interesting experience."

    "I'm not used to that," Lohan explained. "Especially moving to New York, I don't get bothered at all, which is really lovely. It's nice to be kind of, in a normal space," she added.

    Meanwhile, LiLo's mother, Dina Lohan, appeared in a Long Island court this morning to face charges stemming from her September DUI arrest.

    Wearing a fitted black dress with gold flowers and a long black jacket, Dina walked side-by-side with attorney Mark Heller as the two entered the courthouse.

    The elder Lohan was arrested in Long Island on Sept. 12 at 11 p.m. after being pulled over and given a blood alcohol test by cops. She had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in her system (.20).

    According to TMZ, the 51-old-mother pled guilty to the charges. Mark Heller tells E! News, "This being the first day of Passover, Dina Lohan was very gratified to receive an offer that we could not pass over—no jail, no probation and the opportunity to resume her driving privileges. She felt this was a great start to the Holy Week."
