Rosie O'Donnell Rosie O'Donnell has reached out to Ashley Fink after she was quoted criticizing the plus-sized Glee star's character in the hit musical series. The comedienne sparked fury among Glee fans after allegedly insisting Fink's on-screen romance with handsome Mark Salling was implausible.

She was quoted as telling Access Hollywood, "It really, really strikes a chord with every overweight woman I know. Every woman I know who's heavy has strong feelings about that storyline. They're like, 'Can you believe that? I think that's horrible. That never happens in school. That character is so unlikable. Why didn't they get a pretty heavy girl?'"

However, the A League of Their Own star has now praised Fink and apologized for her remarks - admitting she is "often misquoted".

In a series of posts on Twitter.com, O'Donnell writes, "Oh Ashley - I love your swagger - your acting - your face - your heart - as a famous fat person - I am often asked about the issue...

"I love the story line - I love the show - and if in any way something I said hurt u - I apologize MORE. You are so talented and I can't wait to hear you belt it ... as I know you can - the often misquoted Rosie."
