while trying to write this blog
i googled lindsay lohan
looking 4 some facts
and found me the top hit

“rosie trashed lindsay lohan on today show”
says the EW blog team
“rosie heatedly slammed lohans casting …”

i don’t get it
it seemed pretty clear to me
“what do i think about her playing liz taylor”
the same thing i think about her playing anyone

to meworking right now seems like a bad idea
it is not about her talent
it is about her health
lindsay lohan needs help

i met her when she was a young girl
smart adorable and full of light
we all watched her this last decade
a true hollywood story

long island memories
stuck in my hard drive
u can never go home again
and u can never really leave

billy joel – howard stern
judd apatow – alec baldwin
bill oreilly – eddie murphy
mariah carey – lindsay lohan

all of us children of the island
robert moses beach
northern state parkway
ej korvettes

long way from there to here
the exact feeling i had
watching whitney houstons funeral in newark
we all should have spoken up for her too

we believe in u
u r not alone
help is available
u r loved

lindsay lohan is worth saving
she is the only one who can do it
before it is 2 late
i hope she can finds her value – off camera

and then – when she returns – on camera
she will wow us all
once more

Today Show

9:30pm Wednesday


April 16th

saw mike tysons one man show last night
very compelling
he spoke for 2 hours
about who he was – who he now is

sat with george lopez
who i haven’t seen in years
he looked happy and healthy
both of us now 50

how quickly it all goes
from tiny comedy clubs
to vegas show rooms

on the flight from vegas 2 LA
a beautiful brown 6 year old boy
with almond eyes
asking where the tv screen was

this is not a private plane
said the older man sitting in front of me
he was next to a woman who was quite ill
hung over i expect or still high

like an episode of intervention – live on delta
the woman – an adrienne curry look alike – was slumped in her seat
her hair perfectly blown out
huge diamonds on each finger

is she ok – asked a flight attendant
as she has to be helped to her seat
she looked pretty bad –
too ill to fly

i am now in my friends guest house
the sky bright blue
green trees sway in the cool breeze
i cant stop thinking about that family

what was the story
and y do i feel the need to know more
curious – concerned – crazy
who decides

tomorrow i go to cbs studios
where it all began for me
out here in hollywood
almost 30 years ago

feel that
peace out
peace in
