Lindsay to Barbara Walters

Sorry, I Won't Talk

About The Crash

11/9/2012 6:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1109_lindsay_barbara_01
Lindsay Lohan has officially pulled out of her "20/20" interview with Barbara Walters ... and TMZ has learned it was all because her new PR team didn't want Babs to grill Lilo like a cheeseburger over the ongoing investigation in her car crash.

Lindsay was scheduled to sit down with Walters this week ... and we're told when she originally agreed to the interview, it was supposed to focus on her new movie, "Liz & Dick."

But sources close to the actress tell us ... in the past week, producers made it clear to Lohan that Barbara wanted to talk about her personal life as well ... including allegations that she lied to police about the June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway.

We're told Lindsay's new PR team, Rogers & Cowan, felt it would be a mistake to put Lindsay in the hot seat ... where she could possibly say something that could screw up her case ... so they pulled the plug.

Sources tell us Lindsay feels terrible for canceling on Barbara, especially since she considers Walters a family friend, and wants to reschedule as soon as her team feels the time is right.

10:31 AM PT -- An ABC News spokesperson tells TMZ ... "We are disappointed that Lindsay cancelled the interview and wish her well."

So much for the "no holds barred" interview that was supposed to come with paying off her $46,000 hotel bill.

What about the bill from, the Chateau that the lifetime producers paid for, just as long as she does this interview? Maybe her new PR team will pay for it/

Steve Honig's "team" just bought up every single champagne glass on the east coast - even the one's owned by bars, citizens, etc. HA! Talk about revenge!!! This will push Linds over the edge. I bet she goes to Long Island and clocks DUIna in the face. Again.

People suspected of murder sit down and do interviews. They may have their lawyers there but they do them none the less. Hell the even accused Mafia cops did 60 minute interviews. But Lindsay is that afraid and of Barabra Walters no less. If everything is a big misunderstanding I wouls think she would want to get her story out. If she can't do publicity for projects then who in their right mind is going to hire her. When Hugh Grant got into his hooker mess didn't he do an interiew the next night or close to it? Oh Lindsay you are a piece of ****.Grow up, except responsibility and maybe you can have a life without drama and arrests.Hell maybe even a career.

LOL!!!!! Fkng amazing. Poor stupid, delusional, irrelevant haters are bashing Lindsay Lohan BECAUSE, BECAUSE her very smart PR team will not allow BW to ask questions about an ongoing investigation. You actually believe it would have been quite decent of Lindsay to allow such a thing, THEREFORE, THEREFORE, she and her PR are a bunch of azzholes. Is this how haters really think??? This is not SNL? This is not Candid Camera???? I'm awake???? Really???? LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

some guy    

Is 'the crash' in reference to the Porsche mishap or the feeling she gets after an all night John Belushi-esque bender?

On The View, while announcing the interview I recall Babs characterized Lohan's parents as bizarre, odd or something non flattering, yet Lohan characterizes as a family friend. Wow speaks volumes of Lyndsay's self centered reality...
