Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

Lindsay Lohan will continue her chatty streak (following her appearance on TMZ Live this week) and will sit down for a one-on-one interview with the legendary Barbara Walters ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has been close to Walters for years and that Barbara reached out to her about doing an interview when it was announced she'd be playing Liz Taylor in the upcoming "Liz & Dick" biopic.

We're told LiLo has been hesitant about sit-down interviews because she fears being asked questions she's not prepared for. But our sources say Lindsay trusts Barbara not to take things too far.

According to our sources, Lindsay and Barbara will sit down sometime in the next few weeks. We're told the interview will focus on the parallels between the lives of Lindsay and Liz Taylor -- things like child stardom, a rough childhood, living life in the public, and also dealing with addiction.

Our sources say the plan is for the interview to air next month to coincide with the premiere of "Liz & Dick."

HA-HA-HA LOOK AT THAT    

Hard hitting?
Lest you forget, Bah-bah was the Loon who asked Katherine Hepburn in 1981: "If you were a tree, what kind would you be?"

Bah Bah also named the Kardashians as her
" Most fascinating people of the year"

Obviously, BaH-BAH was in the deepest throes of an attack of Senile Dementia at the moment she made her choice

Watch one drugged-up Loon lie in answer to a Senile Loon's absurd questions?

No Thanks, that would be a good occasion to scrub the bathroom toilet.

I hope Baba Wawa leads Lindsay into a corner that she can't get out of. Even if Baba doesn't mean to do it. Now that would be great to see Lindsay blow a gasket.

How barbara walters achieved her reputation as so solid and upright is a mystery. It's all smoke and mirrors. She wrote in her recent book that she had a long running affair with a married black congressman. The woman has no morals nor concern for anyone else. She's extremely rich and tries to hide her wealth and her private life from the adoring public, who think she can do no wrong. Instead of comparing lohan to elizabeth taylor, try comparing her to her own mother, or to some other current actress who's in trouble constantly for breaking the law, lying, showing no regard for others or for their property, life, or limb. Now, what kind of tree would Lindsay like to be? That is the question, and something that should keep her up at night.

The only person who is a worse liar than DINA is LINDSAY.

Babs will make her look like an idiot without drawing blood, just like Dr. Phil did to Dina.

Not sure what is more pathetic when Blohan's enablers (her two fans) defend her or make multiple ID's on anyone who talks negatively about her...

Oh you can hate on me don't really care I've never wished her dead or to overdose which I've seen other people do ...

Why do these American journalists such as Barbara W. put such effort in to scoring an interview with probably the least important most uninteresting person of our time? So she does drugs, steals, bla bla no different then trailer trash all over the country. Why do these random nobodies like Casey Anthony and Lindsay L. get continual coverage with questions as to why they are the way they are. Never any real consequence for their actions but still the media drags it on and on. As a social psychology major I reckon I'd get a D- if I tried to turn in a paper on LL. She has zero substance and doesn't this silly interview make Barbara W. look foolish going after this story like it's a Nobel prize winner doing only one interview to the best in the business reporter. Someone please explain the obsession. The Pres goes on a show that the lead reporter interviews Lindsay Lohan. Come on.
