Lindsay Lohan

I'm Sitting Down

with Barbara Walters

EXCLUSIVE

1014_lindsay_barbara_walters_tmz_getty
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."

on Dlisted this with would have the proper tag of "I DON'T LIKE JOKES"

I'm so sick of this brat being compared to Elizabeth Taylor and before her rapid 5 fans start enumerating the comparisons of Ms. Taylor being a homewrecking, drug addict alcoholic I will do it for you: she stole other women's husbands, drank like a fish and became addicted to pain killers due to various back accidents from injuries she suffered on set. Back issues so bad she spent her life in and out of a wheelchair.

She never did drugs to get high. like our lovely little Blohan; she never faked sick with "asthma" over and over again to get out of work cause she was hungover from her party hardy lifestyle choices; she NEVER STOLE from stores OR HER FRIENDS and she especially was never arrested for driving while intoxicated or on drugs.

Walters should be ashamed but she lost that and respect long ago when she interviewed Wonky Hilton while she was in prison.

Lifetime must of spend a fortune on this crackhead whore WHO HAS NO TALENT at all. She is a horrible human being with no redeeming qualities unless you count being a lying thief as a talent.

Whether it's orchestrated or not, she continues to receive attention...and all attention--negative or positive, will continue to enable her...not that you will agree because well...it kind of screws up your ability to lecture people about enabling her...you might have to realize you're a hypocrite if you were to agree with me,..and that won't happen. Denial-- it ain't just for addicts.

In no way will Barbara Walters be hard on her. She is a celebrity ass kisser. The entire media is portraying Lindsay as some innocent girl who was betrayed by her father, all the while ignoring everything that was on the tape, as well as Lindsay's recanting of the statements she made on it. Walters will be easy on her, just as everyone is being easy on her. It's weird that no one asks "Why was Lindsay clubbing with her MOM at 4AM?" Why is she now recanting what she said on the tape" etc etc. As much of a douchebag as her father is, its unfair that he is taking the blame for all of this and recieving all of the backlash when it is pretty clear that both Lindsay and Dina are so f*cked up in the head and are easily getting away with their ridiculousness.

Walters didn't get where she is today by being hard on celebs. Anyone who thinks this will be anything but an ass kisser interview is crazy. Waste of time.

This is what these bottom feeders are now reduced to.


Walters, TMZ, Today show, Dr. Phil


To the tune of $50,000 or maybe more if these shows are stupid enough to give them that.


They'll talk to anyone willing to pay them.

It's a win win for Lindsay. She can promote her movie, and get paid for the interview. ABC says they don't pay, but they do. Thanks to them, Casey Anthony is walking amongst us!

Yes, she is always "friends for years" with these big name people. Hasn't she been friends with Woody Allen for years, too? I think she, Babs, and Wood all had a three way, then Babs and Wood each shelled out $23,000 to help her pay her bill at the Chateau. Linz is so enchanting in the sack that everyone is just compelled to write her a big check when it's all over! I wonder if Linz's price includes the post-coital cigarettes and coke? Probably not. BYO.

Is this the same Barbara Walters who bragged in her book about how years ago she had a married lover, who still happens to be alive and with his same wife? Wow, she better be careful going after the train-wreck Lohan family with those moral credentials. Adulteress interviewing drunken, drug users – we all lose.

Why ?? So Lindsay can have a 'platform' for more LIES--about how wonderful she is--and how well she's doing ?? Giving Lindsay ANY "Press" is like throwing gasoline on a fire.

"Sitting around giving her attention day in and day out is in fact enabling her just as badly as anyone else. It's so arrogant for someone to think they have the right to chew other people out for "enabling" when they are just as bad! So where are all the people ready to admit that they're hypocrites? Oh come on, you aren't telling me these same people that sit around all day long ripping on Lindsay for being in denial and being dishonest actually lack the ability to be honest themselves, are you? Oh. My. God. You mean to tell me these same people don't actually practice what they preach? You mean to tell me these people aren't saints the way they make themselves out to be? You mean to tell me that they really have no right to go around chewing up everyone else cause they're just as bad as the next? I am SHOCKED. Just shocked I tell ya!!


I think its mighty 'arrogant' of YOU, to call people out for 'enabling' by being here, yet here you are doing the exact same! I find THAT rather 'hypocritical', don't you? Who exactly is 'chewing' anyone out? The usual 'enablers' aren't even on the boards. You've mentioned several times now about 'sitting around all day long ripping on Blohan', whats it to you? Do you have some vested interest in how I spend MY time? Who is being 'dishonest' or in 'denial' here? Who's claiming to be a 'saint'? What the fvck are you talking about? This is gossip board, its to give your thoughts and opinions. We're not her to discuss ourselves, for the most part. As soon as tmz does a story on myself, everyone can then 'rip' on me but until then, we'll just focus on Blohan, k?
