Lindsay Lohan knows she’s right for the role of Elizabeth Taylor in the new movie “Liz & Dick,” and doesn’t really care what Rosie O’Donnell thinks about it. O’Donnell was on the “Today” on Tuesday (April 24), and said Lohan isn’t “capable” of the role and that “she needs a lot of help.” When Donny Deutsch suggested that Lohan is “our generation’s Elizabeth Taylor,” O’Donnell responded with, “You’re out of your mind! You’re a crackhead! The last thing she did good she was 16.” Lohan’s publicist tells E! News, “I think Rosie should focus on her own career and stop worrying about everyone else’s.” Yesterday Lindsay’s mother Dina came to her defense. Dina refers to “Prairie Home Companion”, “Bobby”, and “Georgia Rule” as examples of good movies Lindsay has done recently.

Photos of Octomom Nadya Suleman’s home have triggered a police and child services investigation into allegations that her 14 kids are living in filth and are being grossly neglected. Suleman’s hairstylist, Stephanie, (who gets paid $520 to cut Octo’s hair) went to La Habra, Calif. cops Tuesday afternoon and filed a formal complaint. A La Habra officer and three people from the Orange County Department of Children and Family Services went to Suleman’s house Tuesday night to investigate. One photo shows two children going to the bathroom in portable training toilets in the backyard. Another photo shows Suleman locked her kids in the bedroom by propping a chair against the door so they couldn’t get out. One photo shows some of the kids in the backyard, barefoot, dirty and wearing no pants. Authorities stayed at Suleman’s home Tuesday night for an hour-and-a-half, and determined the kids were not in danger. There will, however, be follow-up with Children’s Services.
