Barbara Walters

Lindsay's Leno Interview

Is a Slap in the Face

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


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.

Lindsay Lohan is a troubled actress that hasn't starred in a mainstream movie in years.

No matter what this broad does now it won't help her reputation, she has ruined that completely with all of the chances she has been given. She keeps f-----ing up and she always will, no hope.

Do people really care what Lindsey has to say? As far as I'm concern she is a child star has been.

Wawa is a shock journalist. She's always going after the controversial actors/people hoping to get a big exclusive and shocking statement to add to her fame. I don't blame Lilo from backing out on Barbara. Lilo has enough issues as is without Wawa trying to sabotage her just to get a story exclusive.

Jay Leno might get a ratings boost after Lindsay Lohan bailed on Barbara Walters for an interview with Jay, but all it really shows is that Jay will let you talk about anything you want and is the television version of Kneepads. What he should do if he really wants to show that he has some balls is ask Lindsay tough question after tough question for the entire time she stays on the show. Sure, she will be upset after it is over, but what kind of power does Lindsay Lohan have? Sure, if you are a peasant in some Middle Eastern country she can have one of her boyfriends throw them in prison, but they are not in Burbank. Jay can make it very clear to everyone else that he will still be their Larry King, but that Lindsay is a special case. It is not like all of the actors and actresses love Lindsay. Would you enjoy always having to watch your purse or wallet or clothes whenever she is invited to a party. Do you enjoy having to tell security to kick her out when she crashes your party? Ask her tough questions and the ratings will be way higher for much longer than the ten minute boost you will get for kissing her butt one night. That is of course assuming Lindsay shows up on November 20th.

Lying Lindsay says "The Cops are ou to get me!"

Now wouldn't it be a hoot if they really were and the arrest warrant was issued the day before or on Jay Leno date or right before Liz n Dick were to air.

That would be the best Christmas present t the public.

C'mon LAPD be out to get Lying Lindsay Lohan

Mornin everyone,

Nicki did you notice that the picture of Lindsay sitting reading the paper had a message on the back page that says it all. It fits with what the producers of the movie think about hiring Lindsay. " Nobody's lower than we are."
Yep, it certainly sums it up nicely. LOL
