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.

Who cares Barbra Walters, you are just and inflated talking head who has become consumed with her own fame. I would love it if she would just stop all the whining.

On the bright side, isn't Lie-ho aging on so gracefully? When ancient ol' Barbra Walters is looking younger than someone who hasn't even hit 30 yet, you know that chick has problems.

Barbara also said she has known Lindsay for years, since she was a child actress. No doubt Nikki's bitches will deny that also.

Pretty sure Shawn Holley got her the Leno gig through her husband Darian who works for Leno, like she did last time.

Messanger, heres a news flash for you. Lindsay is NEVER coming back, She is so done and over in Hollywood.
You should hang out in her favorite hotels, maybe you can become one of her clients.
Thats all she has left. This new PR firm is NOT going to change her..So get over it.

All the more reason that Lindsays dropping her and going to Leno is a personal and public slap in the face.

The best people in the damage control business say repeatedly: Tell the truth, Tell it all, Tell it fast.
Lindsay could have sat with Walters, told the truth and cleared the decks. Next morning would have been like being reborn, and the hate industry she spawned would soon begin to fade. However, this REQUIRES THE BAD BEHAVIOR TO STOP on a dime.
But Lindsay will follow the bone-head shlt-for-brains path championed by the likes of Messenger and Nicole:
Lie Lie Lie
Blame someone
Hide it
Rationalize it
Whine about it
Explain it with something totally lame
Look someone in the eye and deny you’re in the room.
Keep up the bad behavior.
Atta girl. Keeping your “fans” happy.

It's hard to take Baba WaWa as a serious journalist because of her association with the view.

Doesn't all that clacking those Lohan Inc Dung Beetels are doing starting to give you a headache...? especially the really loud one ..but you know if you step on one they give off a awful smell ...just like the Shyt pile they have been eating and living in... and the smell lingers and won't go away....
but think if they start right now they may have her whipped in shape by the time she goes on Leno....OR they could do just like the last time and fake it ...after the audience has left with taped standing ovations and canned laughter....and Lindsey "Sparkle Shirleying" for the Camera.....and her agent didn't get this gig.....
as much as Shawn Holly got this gig because her husband works on the show..... By the way did anybody notice her agents name.....? .....LOL

You've had a long and illustrious career. Shouldn't you be having lunch with the ladies by now, and not airing your dirty laundry? And why is Elisabeth Hasselbeck still employed, with her moronic nasty politics?

Hold the phone here folks, wasn't it Lindsay's camp who were all excited and proud of the NO HOLDS BARRED interview that Linds scored with BW?
