Barbara Walters Throws Shade At Lindsay Lohan!

lindsay lohan red hair barbara walters cancel interview

You don't disrespect Babs!

You just don't do it!!

And on Wednesday, Barbara Walters kept it real when discussing Lindsay Lohan's cancelled interview on The View.

She said Linds had promised her the first interview, and when Linds cancelled, she said she'd reschedule "when it was right," to which Babs quipped:

"I should live so long."


See! We told you Babs don't play!

Of course, as fiery as she can be, she maintains her classy composure at the end of the day and immediately felt remorse for what she said.

So to ease the blow, she followed up with:

"I want to take it back. I'd love to interview her. Start fresh without the few clouds that are over her. She’s a nice girl, and I appreciate what she said."

"What happened is that Lindsay Lohan had promised me her first interview. And, you know, there are certain questions that should be asked, and just before the interview, her new PR people canceled."

But they didn't cancel on Jay Leno.

And Babs made sure to comment on that too:

"I heard she was going to do Jay. And Jay — I have to say — was very sweet, he called me and said, 'Look, I didn’t take her from you' and so on. [But] I’d been working forever on the questions. I’d gone to California to show her on Liz & Dick."

"If they had 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."

We agree!

Surely the PR peeps didn't want Linds getting in any legal troubles, but missing a chance to interview with Barbara could quite possibly be one of the worst things you could do when you're trying revamp your image as a serious actress.

    This HoHan girl came to HollyWood as a young innocent teen with a *bit* of talent. S he quickly got caught up in the drugs/party/sex orgy s cene. It made her hard - made her look h ard. Subsequent bo-tox and other procedures only made her look harder - like a 48 year old woman 'trying' to look 25. Those around her did nothing to stop her outrageous behaviour. They all fed off her gravy train. It will all end horribly, and then everyone will b e asking WHY ? WHY did nobody stop her excessive outlandish behaviour. S he will be remebered as but a footnote in HollyWood as some silly B-List actress who could not stop S*cking/F*cking/Sn*orting … sad, really …

    ugh get over it. If its not in her interest to answer difficult questions then why would she put herself up for it? Its not a court case. She just wants to plug her damn film at the end of the day. I dont understand why people expect celebs to put themselves up to be interrogated? she gets that enough with her legal drama she doesnt need it from granny walters too.

    Lindsay looks 25 years older than she is. Shitty mess.

    All these people, including both Barbara and Lindsay take themselves way too seriously…
    They are entertainers for God's sake…they don't save lives, they don't cure ills, they don't prevent poverty, they don't end wars …they are clowns and the sooner they realize they are nothings in our lives the better off we will all be….

    I simply don't get it. LIndsay has now proven that she's pretty useless as an actress, all she is still famous for is her scandals. I get you want to interview big actresses her age that are hard-working and decent addresses like Scarlett, Anne, Keira, Carey, Jennifer and more. There is nothing special about Lindsay except her always-astounding ability to lie about everything.

    Re: Be-Atch
    your line about ceilings, might have been funny the first time, now just boring as shit. nearly as much so as okra/pray gay etc.

    give it a rest

    The good news is that they're (media) still fighting over her.

    She's all washed up. and she looks old. B Walters interview could have been be a real move toward legitimacy. Lindsay just can't hack it. Please, anybody: Why does she steal? Is she mental?

    she snorted up her looks, drank up her career, and licked up all her chances to succeed. it's just sad now…

  12. 12

    Doesn't Barbara Walters have anything better to spend her final days doing….

  13. 13

    She'll be up Lindsey's butt the second Lindsey calls. Whatev. Has been.

    I can understand this guy's constant bitching and ass-kissing ways, but why does he insist on trying to destroy the English language? "Throwing shade" and "channeling" and all the other ridiculous attempts at adding a bit of color to a rather bland blog not only proves he suffers from LAMS, but that his amateurish writing is not even worthy of a high school newspaper. Seriously, Perez, "snap, snap" stopped being funny way back when "Living Color" was still on the air.

    How ’bout then she has seen more floora than a 'bitch' in an all male prison …? truly, the girl is a TRAMP !

    I suffered through that episode of "The View" and I must say. . .that was HILARIOUS!! Barbara said something else catty about someone else (can't remember who) minutes later. I fell out laughing! Joy got a kick out of it. Lindsay and her mom are back to their lies on interviews. Why do they even bother? I wonder who'll die first. . .her mom, or her. NO ONE will remember them, as she thinks. I believe they think she IS Lis Taylor or Marilyn Monroe. She's more like a skid row bum that a Real Housewife's kid kicks.

    "Liz" not "Lis"

    Why does everyone want to interview this train wreck?
