Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

EXCLUSIVE

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."

I'll bet a dollar to a doughnut that Bawbwa will ask hard hitting questions. Like, has LieLo picked out her dress for the Academy Awards next year? Or was LieLo surprised that Kim Kartrashian's wedding lasted as long as it did? Must see TV. Yup.

If Lilo thinks that she can just stick to the questions about Liz & Dick, she is totally wrong - - especially with Barbara WaWa

Lying Lohan will never give a real interview, just a bunch of denial and claiming she's a victim. Truly the product of her disgusting parents. I'll take a big pass on this pile of ****, along with anything else 'Lohan'.

Doesn't Kumm Karsnatchian have an "I'm like E. Taylor" delusion, too?
Liz paid her own way and admitted her faults, PLUS just had REAL raw material to work with, unlike KK and LL!!!
*sigh*SMH

Ugh. If Bobwa doesn't ask the hard questions and this is just a bump for a freaking movie, she's even more pathetic than I thought.

As Charlie Brown would say, Good Grief. Now Walters is one of her "close friends for years??" LOL Well, if so, she's the first female! What a load of sh*t. Since Blo seems to be trying to create some sympathy for herself (at least from those who haven't been following along in her long list of grifter antics) in front of her Lifetime fiasco, maybe Walters will hold her hand and dab her eyes. Sniff.
There, there, Blo, I hope you do as well as your spun out mom did in her interview. Wear a little tie and little shoes to show you're a good sport. And don't mention that you do the same things over and over again, and play your crazy parents (for lack of a better word) against each other and use people like disposable lighters. Go party the night before and arrive at the taping still soused, perhaps driving through a wall on your way in. Look for any loose jewelry on the crew as you enter and be sure to pump up your lips again before the taping. That way, if there's one gutsy adult on that freak show, they'll wet down your duck lips and stick you to a frickin' wall.

Ketjo nailed it - the massive difference between Lieho and these actresses she tries to compare herself to like Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe is that these women had a heart and were ultimately LIKEABLE PEOPLE. They had many faults and personal problems but did not INTENTIONALLY revel in darkness and destruction. Deep down they still loved themselves and others and didn't mean people harm, and I think that shows up when you compare their physical appearances to Lindsay's. This is the same reason I actively dislike Lielo but I only ever rooted for Britney, Amy Winehouse, Cory Haim and others. Lindsay can't seem to grasp this and she thinks the reason other "trainwrecks" still have admirers (despite being addicts, promiscuous, and acting out unstable behavior like herself) and she does not is simply because others randomly have it in for her.

Baba has Lindz's phone number to get stories, not because they're 'close'. lol

the metamorphosis of a once good journalist into a yellow rag reporter pandering to "15 mins ago" talent. What is Babs bringing to the table that TMZ and Enquirer are missing.

Elizabeth Taylor was the kind of woman you reach up to, Lindsay Lohan is the kind of woman you step over.
