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.

Hilarious...her new PR firm has told Blo to stop using the "Homebody" line and go back to the "on set" and "people around me were bad inflences" lines.

All this hype over some Lifetime movie with her is exactly the same type of hype there was for her lame Playboy spread. That was over and done with in one day. Get lost Lohan.

Yep. Every other cable channel, major motion picture studio, porn director and 11th-grader with video on their phone can make YouTube movies day and night, year after year with little issue.

Linds staggers "on set", and it's an instant 'round-the-clock catastrophe of biblical proportions, more talked about - however negatively - than the OPEC crisis or Chernobyl.. After the litigation dust settles, this will be the first-ever budget TV production to exceed one billion dollars in unrecoverable expenses, but the value is in the end result...... Lifetime will finally be able to whimper away with a bang.

Yep.

"....like a fallen star, who works in a bar, where yesterday is King....."

Harry Nilsson - "Mr. Richland's Favorite Song" - 1967. How could he have known Linds' future 20 years before she was mutated?

QUUUUUUAAAACKKKK!! Larry is starting to make the interview rounds. From today:


"People will see that Grant Bowler as Richard Burton just steals your heart and Lindsay Lohan breaks it," added the producer. "I'm guardedly optimistic that the public will like the movie very much. I believe if everybody takes a deep breath and focuses on her artistry instead of her antics, they will enjoy a pretty riveting movie."

Really? Have you EVER heard of a movie producer that begs people to like their "star"?
`
Just forget she is a criminal, a drunk, a thief, a violent assaulter and just concentrate on how cute and sweet she is? WTF?

Grant is not Muzzled he just has other fish to fry a brand new tv series he gets to be the Star in.....on Sci Fi channel coming the First of the Year ...Looks pretty good from the trailers and pre views...so he's probabl y been on location looks like its being filmed in Canada ...He has been a busy boy unlike Lindsay .......and I believe he wants nothing to do with the dam thing.....and will do only what he is ordered to do.....watch his face in that interview that is one man who does not lie easily it shows on his face so they won't want him on camera to much he would give to much away with just his face and voice....

I was a publicist in L.A. for many years and represented established and emerging "stars." Barbra Walters is soooo right; the publicist should have been up front because in the long run, the relationship with the press is the most important relationship there is for an actress/ actor -

IMPOSSIBLE to forget what she is, in this movie. All I will see is a criminal in a wig.
