These are challenging times for the Lohan family.
Lindsay Lohan has been hit with the shame and bad publicity of a fellow entertainer criticising her current project. The 27 year-old actress can currently be seen on OWN's Lindsay, a reality show that follows the troubled star as she goes about her daily business and works to get her life back on track. However, comedian Rose O'Donnell has now added her voice to the admonishment of Lindsay in a caustic tweet.

O'Donnell publically blasted Lohan's show, writing "The Lindsay show is a tragedy - on every level - I hope one day she gets sober for real and watches these episodes - n sees what we all do" to hundreds of 'retweets' and 'favorites' demonstrating support for the outspoken television personality's view. Lindsay hasn't had chance to respond to O'Donnell's comments, having instead been snapped partying at the Coachella Festival in California.
The young movie star has struggled with alcohol and drug abuse in the past and has been admitted to rehab several times as a result. One of the founding principles for her Oprah Winfrey Network show was to act as a diary for the Mean Girls actress' road to recovery. However, it seems as though she may have fallen off the wagon of late, having been spotted drinking with friends at the California bash.

To make matters worse for the Lohan family's publicity right now, Dina Lohan, Lindsay's mother, has received a DUI sentencing of 100 hours of community service as penance for being arrested on the Northern State Parkway last September going 77 mph in a 55-mph zone with her blood alcohol twice the legal limit.
Dina argued that she was speeding because she was fleeing paparazzi, which saw her speeding charge lessened so that she gets only three points on her license, not the original nine, said Dina's lawyer, Mark Jay Heller, via the NY Daily News.

In addition to her community service, the 51 year-old will have a device fitted that will stop her car from starting if she fails a breathalyser test and she will be forced to attend a drunk-driving program. "She felt this was a great start to the Holy Week," said Heller in a statement.
