Barbara Walters

Lindsay's Leno Interview

Is a Slap in the Face

11/12/2012 9:18 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

111212_view_walters

Barbara Walters
is straight-up insulted that Lindsay Lohan canceled an interview with her to chat with Jay Leno instead -- claiming Lindsay's people didn't even have the courtesy to explain why she pulled out.

Barbara spoke out on "The View" this morning, saying, "If they'd said to me 'You know, Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions that you might ask' ... If they had told me that, I wouldn't feel quite as disappointed as I do today."

Lindsay had previously been scheduled to do an interview with Walters on "20/20" but the actress canceled -- and Barbara claims Lindsay's people gave her a BS excuse ... that LiLo just wasn't feeling "up to it."

Next thing Barbara knew, Lindsay's people had booked her on Leno instead -- and she's insinuating ... it's because Leno won't ask the hard-hitting questions Barbara wanted to. 

Lindsay's Leno interview is supposed to air next week.

She refused to talk to Barbara -- but you'll recall, Lindsay opened up about her family problems on TMZ Live just last month. The interview was explosive.

Red Cloudy Elmo had to have his feather socket pumped out by a septic tank maintenance company.

The guy told him it will probably fill up again very quickly. After all, he is a shlt head.

Yippy Ki Yay..... I do not care for a minute what Lohan has to say, she could tell the world the sky was falling...as long as she SLAPPED WALTERS in the face...STING!!!!!! I can not stand that overbearing Nose up in the air woman at all. She felt so sorry for Jolie cuz she cut herself..boo hoo...but when O'Donnel showed her marks, she called her sick, no babs your sick.And how about the person she interviewed and they did not tell her something, (can not remember who) but she banned her from her life..lol
All this comes from a woman who had a man ask her NOT to write about the affair they had, as it would hurt his wife, they have been married about 50 years, but Barbra had to tell , probably because that is all the men she has ever been seen with, married ones. I just do not like Walters and I know this is making her steam.so what? she is really a nobody at this point and actually I never thought much of her any way. She was not a well trained journalist, you do not wear a bunny suit if you value being held up as one.

Lindsay's many, many fans and supporters are not drawn to gossip sites. Some of us are here mostly for a laugh. There's no need or desire to vent because we're not boiling angry and frustrated. She's not in jail. She's on late night TV and making movies. The pace is a bit slower than expected, but it's happening. She's made some asinine mistakes, but all will be ok. Fans and supporters take a glimpse of the lunatic commentary and wisely steer clear. The news items are mostly ignored because of the high probability of BS. Her many fans and supporters are not here or at any other silly gossip site. Why would reasonable humans waste time at Celebichy or D-Listeed or whatever the stupid fk or Hollywood Access or ???? Before SNL, gossip sites had polls predicting extremely poor ratings. The ratings were second best for the season. Clearly, gossip sites are strong magnets for haters, NOT, I repeat, NOT Lindsay's fans and supporters. You do not represent the majority.

They scurried over to Lapdog Leno once Lifetime started making noises about breach of contract, most likely. She has to do at least one interview before the Liz&Dick thing airs. Her lawyer is married to a guy on Leno's show, that's how they pushed her on before on very short notice. My bet is that it will be a rerun of the last time: Lawyer drags Lindsay in on a tight leash, Leno tapes it in front of a pretend audience, Lindsay recites her lines while pretending to appreciate the ecstatic non-existent audience, and Leno sits there looking replaceable by a bag of cotton candy. Maybe this time they'll have her lines on a teleprompter, that's always fun to watch. It would be really nice if Leno didn't stick to the script they'll give him, but it's unlikely that will happen. Even if he does that, he might be forced by the Litigious Lohans to cut it out of the taping. Anyway - Barbara should relax. I'm sure Lindsay is being dragged kicking and screaming to Leno also. Barbara should consider herself lucky.

The latest 1am story will possibly be Lindsay's response to Barbara saying she's got problems. Her PR people want her to shut up but it's too much of a temptation to spew back and of course it's some dope money she'll have when she sells it to Harvey.

Red Cloudy Elmo found out his feather socket is magnetic. He was walking by a refrigerator when his head suddenly stuck to the door.

Blohan continues her descent into the hole she's dug for herself. Crap movies, fluff interviews (if any), and no interest except for her real career of what's that stupid b*tch done now news. LOL Most of us wouldn't pay 14 cents to see her do anything, but the free snow-blower antics are a kick. Now that's entertainment!

This is the first time I have heard this fight tape and then her backpeddling on TMZ live. I am telling you that mother of hers is evil.

As long as you are healthy, able bodied and of working age, you do not take money from your kids. Lindsay can buy the house and put it in her name and allow her family to live there, but if her "amazing" mother was so fvkin amazing, she really would have raised you. Raising children, divorce or no divorce emans that both parents take financial and custody responsibility. This woman might have been sitting on her ass at home awake but she did not support them clearly it was they who supported themselves.

I have two and never got a dime of support when we split and guess what...support was not needed...he paid for this I paid for that and we split it all down the middle...
