Watch Barbara Walters Reaction to Getting Snubbed by Lindsay Lohan
When I found out that Lindsay Lohan was not going to do Barbara Walters’ 20/20 special, I knew that she would be pissed. When I found out that she agreed too still do The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, I knew that she would be even more pissed….and Pissed she was.
Rightly so. When you hear Barbara going off on her tirade, you realize that “B-Dub” put her work in. Not only did she already film a segment with Lindsay on location where Lindsay was filming the upcoming feature “Liz and Dick”, but Walters actually watched the movie and was going to walk Lindsay through a list of personal and professional parallels of her life with that of the actual Elizabeth Taylor.
Barbara in her heart of hearts thought that she could, by interviewing Lohan and asking the right questions, help her. She was truly hurt when Lohan opted out. Then going on Leno just poured salt in her wounds. A bitter Walters said,
‘As far as Jay goes, I love Jay. More power to him. I think I would have helped her. I think to go on Jay Leno and be adorable and amusing, there’s still all the problems with her.’
Here is Barbara Walters on the View in a clip I like to call, “Muddy Walters”.
