Barbara Walters Is Not Happy About Lindsay Lohan Cancelling On Her
Seasoned journalist Barbara Walters directed an extremely well-mannered middle finger this morning at Lindsay Lohan. The actress/ hot mess was supposed to sit down with her on 20/20 to discuss her upcoming Lifetime movie about Elizabeth Taylor and the parallels between the lives of the two women, but one of the reps for the twenty-six-year-old called up Babs and told her Lindsay wasn’t feeling up to it.
Speaking on The View, Walters said she was initially okay with the cancellation but quickly changed her tune when she discovered Lohan was going on Leno instead. The veteran reporter stopped short of calling Lindsay a coward, but in the nicest way possible on today’s episode, she very heavily implied the starlet may not have been too excited about answering a few of the questions she certainly would have posed. She might not be Mike Wallace, but her interview style certainly has more in common with his than Leno’s.
Here's a portion of the quote, courtesy of TMZ...
"'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."
Here’s the problem with this whole mess. It’s really not a smart PR move for Lohan to do an interview with Walters at this moment. She’s got a slew of court cases and investigations against her. Studios are probably getting a little nervous about hiring her, and she has a lot to lose. She reportedly just switched publicists, and it’s not shocking the new people wouldn’t have been excited about this. That being said, she had already agreed to the sitdown; so, now she looks really suspicious pulling out.
I doubt Lindsay will change her mind and do the Walters interview, but if she does, we’ll let you know.
