Twitter War: LiLo vs. Ol' Jo

by CHRISTINE LAI · July 13, 2010

I guess Joan Rivers really misses the spotlight because she decided to give this generation's Hollywood stars a little piece of her old and wise mind. After Lindsay Lohan's court appearance, Rivers thought her commentary would make Lohan feel even better about her guilty verdict.

For a couple of hours on July 9, it seemed like the younger, spunkier, and meaner version of Rivers resurfaced...or took over her Twitter account.

She tweeted the following all within the same day:

@ Joan_ Rivers Lindsay Lohan said she wouldn't mind being under oath because she thought Oath was a  Norwegian ski instructor.- 1:57pm

@ Joan_ Rivers Lindsay Lohan is so dumb. Her idea of being sworn in is cursing at the judge.- 2:38pm

@ Joan_ Rivers I was just reading about the new Lindsay Lohan diet, which is all liquid. 80 Proof.-2:44pm

@ Joan_ Rivers Lindsay Lohan had "Fuck You" painted on her nails. What people don't know is that the judge had "Eat me you party skank," painted on hers."- 5:14pm

...and then Rivers returned to herself and her world. Back to promoting her new documentary "A Piece of Work" and her appearances throughout the country. Apparently Lindsay and Joan aren't friends because Lohan wasn't tagged in any of these tweets and it took a couple of days for Lohan to even see them. But now the Twitter wars have begun with lindsaylohan on the defense (again):

@ lindsaylohan "RT @samantharonson: Hey Joan Rivers- you have collagen older than Lindsay, pick on someone your own age, oh (cont) 10

@ lindsaylohan Joan Rivers and her "stargument" make me believe that she and Michael Lohan are a match made in

@ lindsaylohan in the words of 50 cent.. “You shouldn't throw stones if you live in a glass house and if you got a glass jaw, you should watch yo mouth"- today

So maybe LiLo got more attention for something as stupid as drunk driving and a "fuck u" manicure, but really Ol'Jo Rivers act your age. Although you're not the headliner on E! News, your documentary has gotten 92% on Rotten Tomatoes and a praise from the New York Times.
