Paltrow to reprise her 'Glee' role despite LiLo's pain

Recent “Glee” guest star Gwyneth Paltrow will soon return to the song and dance show playing anything-goes substitute teacher Holly Holliday, but not everyone will be happy to hear the news.

While promoting her film “Country Strong,” Paltrow told Access Hollywood she planned to rejoin television’s “best job ever” one more time.

Of course, if the actress's next "Glee" appearance is anything like her last one, she can be sure one former friend and former Gleek won’t tune in.

During Paltrow’s previous stint at McKinley High, her character used Lindsay Lohan as a teaching tool for her Spanish class.

“Lindsay Lohan is totally crazy, right?” Holliday asked her class before prompting the students to give the Spanish language answer to questions, such as, “How many times has Lindsay been in rehab?”

Viewers may have found the references funny, but the five-time rehabber did not .

“Lindsay is so upset with Gwyneth," LiLo’s mom, Dina Lohan, told RadarOnline.com. "Lindsay was watching it while in Betty Ford, then she called me and was upset and said, 'Why did she have to do that?'"

The elder Lohan insists she and her daughter don’t have a problem with jokes at their expense, milkaholoic baby ads notwithstanding, but they believe Paltrow went too far.

“We are the first to make fun of ourselves in our family,” Dina Lohan said. "And Lindsay has even done SNL a few times, but Gwyneth went overboard and it was unnecessary. Lindsay thought she was a friend and it was disappointing. It was really hard for her to watch... it was hurtful, not funny.
