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."

This is devastating for Lindsay. ANOTHER time she doesn't show up for work to do PR.
She's toast in the industry.

"BUT why not state you opinion last night that it would be a terrible idea for her to do an interview? Because he's a mental loser, that's why."

Lindsay is tweeting which means she is in a good mood probably because she knows something.
-
Also, looks like the BW interview is happening on schedule.

Red Rocket Red Rocket
You did it again
Your fiction blew up in your face

Gotti’s gone, Liz is stew
Not a thing you can do
And with Pitbull, there isn’t a case

Your hyperbole rant
Makes no sense ‘cuz it can’t
And we don't bother viewing your links

Pluck that thing off your head
Soon now, Linds will be dead
That's a mighty effective Black Jinx

You've got to love the enablers...

Before: touting how she'll be doing an interview with the esteemed Barbara Walters. I believe they said "take that haters", or something to that effect.

Now: Look how smart her PR team is for cancelling on this gig that would have asked personal questions. Personal questions that Lindsay could have said "No comment" to, instead of answering. But no, it's so much better to just cancel the PR tour.

LOL, it doesn't get better than this!!!

What is really funny, is that she thinks that ANYONE takes her seriously to discuss her "work" on a TV movie an direct to DVD cheapie.

RC really did put the jinx on her with this one. No sooner did he get on here and state the BW interview was right on schedule that it was then canceled.
