Oh sh*t, Lilo what have you done?! A Barbara Walters scorned is a scurrry sight to see!!
Even though Lindsay Lohan was supposed to engage in a conversation with Barbara Walters on 20/20 concerning Lilo's portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in the upcoming Lifetime movie Liz & Dick, Lilo abruptly cancelled the interview last week because her new reps were supposedly worried about the questions Babs was planning on asking the controversial starlet…
Especially since Lindsay is dealing with possible jail time for allegedly lying to cops about her June car crash, thus violating her jewelry theft probation.
Ok fair enough.
BUT THEN, this past weekend, we heard Lindsay WILL hold an interview — not with Barbara — but with the Tonight Show's Jay Leno!!!!
And obviously, Barbara is NOT happy.
Watch Babs' reaction — AND some footage from Barbara's Liz & Dick onset interview with Lindsay — from today's The View (above)!
It's obvious that Linds' new reps see Jay as a a safe, totally vanilla bet when it comes to interviews, and wouldn't ask anything that might paint the actress in a bad light, but we honestly think this decision is a terrible move, especially as Lindsay wants to get her acting career back on track!
By switching Barbara for Jay, Lindsay is basically saying: "No, I don't want to be honest about myself with my fans, I don't want to reveal anything or address any of my past actions… I just wanna promote my Lifetime movie."
Which is fine, if she didn't constantly get herself in ridiculous situations even though she knows she's in the public eye!
And it's never a good idea for a celebrity to be on a journalist's bad side, especially one as iconic as Barbara Walters!
Ah well, we hope you didn't just f*ck yourself over Lindsay… we so so SO want you're career to flourish!
