Lindsay Lohan: Barbara Walters Booted in Favor of Jay Leno for Interview

It was widely publicised that Barbara Walters had an indepth 20/20 interview lined up with controversial celebrity Lindsay Lohan, in the run up to the release of Lifetime's Elizabeth Taylor biopic Liz & Dick, which stars Lohan. However, just a few days ago Lohan's new publicists cancelled on Walters on Li-Lo's behalf. THEN, they announced that she'd be interviewing with Jay Leno instead. The cheek! 

Walters is not a happy bunny, an emotion that she aired on The View with Whoopi Goldberg on Monday (12th Nov. 2012). "If they had said to me, 'You know Barbara, she isn't up to the kinds of questions you might ask.' If they had told me that, I wouldn't feel quite as disappointed as I do today," Walters said. 

Whoopi supported the octogenarian journalist, saying "You are a very different kind of interviewer." speculating the possibility that Lohan's publicists thought, "You know what, WE are not up for you to do with interview you will be doing with Barbara - you are going to do Jay and get your [movie promotion] obligation out of the way." With which Babs agreed, reports the Washington Post.

Despite ending the discussion saying "I wish Lindsay the best. We would have done a wonderful interview. I hope she feels well," there's no doubt that perhaps the tiniest bit of resentful venom lies behind the kind words. It wont be the hard-hitting, revelatory 20/20 interview that we all could have expected from Walters, but Li-Lo's Leno interview is better than nothing and we look forward to it.
