Actress Ashley Fink, who plays Lauren on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, has responded to comedienne-talk show host Rosie O'Donnell's comment that her role is not believable.

McKinley High wrestler Lauren joined the school's glee club at the prompting of studly Puck (played by Mark Salling), and now Puck is heavily courting her.

In an Access Hollywood segment, the recently single O'Donnell called their romance unbelievable.

“Every woman I know who's heavy has very strong feelings about that storyline,” O'Donnell said. “They're like, 'Can you believe that? I think it's horrible. That never happens in school. That character is so unlikable. Why didn't they get a pretty heavy girl?'”

Fink told gay glossy The Advocate that she was “surprised” by what O'Donnell had said.

“I am surprised at the comments she made,” Fink said. “I've got swagger too, so I don't find my storyline unrealistic.”

Fink added that she identifies with Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer), the show's bullied gay teen.

“Growing up 'other' in any way, whether it be gay, chubby, or whatever, you have to fight. Kurt's bullying storyline on Glee has really resonated with me because middle school was terrible for me.”
