Who Do You Think You Are?: Why is Rosie O’Donnell Upset with Glee?

February 23, 2011 03:27 PM by Shayla Perry

Rosie O’Donnell, who was just featured in last night’s episode of NBC’s Who Do You Think You Are?, has made it clear that she’s a big fan of the hit series, Glee, on FOX. But lately, the outspoken talk show host has a bone to pick with the show’s creators. What’s got Rosie O’Donnell so glum about Glee?

According to Access Hollywood, Rosie O’Donnell is not happy about the character Lauren Zizes, who’s recently been added to the cast of the FOX series. Specifically, it’s Zizes’ singing ability, or lack thereof, that has the show hitting a sour note with the actress/comedian.

“I have to believe that Ryan [Murphy] and Brad [Falchuk] have something up their sleeve and that Lauren can really sing because ‘I Know What Boys Like’ last night was not what I was expecting,” O’Donnell explained. “I just was like, ‘Where’s the Susan Boyle moment? She’s gonna belt it out of the park!’ and then she did ‘I Know What Boys Like, I Know What Guys Want?’ I was like, ‘I want more than this.’”

And that’s not all…

Rosie O’Donnell also says that Glee’s Lauren Zizes character has angered a lot of her close friends saying, “It really, really strikes a chord with every overweight woman I know. That character is so unlikable. Why didn’t they get a pretty heavy girl? They should’ve gotten someone beautiful like Brooke Elliot.”

    I’m not a Rosie fan, but she is right on on this one. In the “real world’ a hot guy like Puck would NEVER go for a fat, sloppy, homely girl like that! Hate to be mean, but even if she had a “pretty face” he would not go for the fat girl. Total crap! Note to the writers “we are not that stupid”!
