It’s alleged Lohan blackmailed/ bartered with Lifetime, who were keen to secure the interview, so Lohan’s caveat was that Lifetime must pay her overdue $46,000 Chateau Marmont bill first, and they apparently did. Producers scheduled the interview, and Walters confirmed. Immediately prior to which, literally days before it was supposed to air, Lohan lied to Walters about “not feeling up to it” which basically equals calling in sick like she did for Liz & Dick and Scary Movie 5. And immediately after which Lohan was booked for interviews with Jay Leno, who called her on it, and Us Weekly Magazine, who didn’t even give her the cover, and others. Leaving Walters calling out Lohan as a liar on The View in front of millions of people. Because Lohan is a liar.
She lied to Walters, she lies about not drinking (she’s allegedly drinking two liters of vodka a day), and she lies about being clean (she was allegedly on coke during yesterday’s arrest).
And now Walters has given an interview for which she says she’s concerned for Lohan. Aren’t we all.
Lindsay Lohan recently bailed on an interview with Barbara Walters, but the iconic journalist tells In Touch she has no hard feelings… only worry for the troubled starlet in the wake of her Nov. 29 arrest in NYC.
“There are a lot of people who say, ‘Why are you so touched? She’s always in trouble,’” Barbara tells In Touch. “But I just think she’s in a very dangerous place right now and I’m concerned for her.”
Early Thursday morning, the Liz & Dick star got into an argument with another female at a nightclub, resulting in Lindsay punching the girl in the face. Video footage shows the NYPD arresting LiLo around 4 a.m. She was booked for a third-degree misdemeanor assault, given a desk appearance ticket, meaning she’ll have to show up in court soon, and released hours later.
Barbara tells In Touch that underneath all of Lindsay’s troubles, she’s really a very sweet person.
“What I feel mostly about Lindsay, whom I know, is when you meet her, she’s a very vulnerable, very sweet girl,” Barbara says of Lindsay. “She’s just in a terrible place in her life right now. With all of these different accusations against her, it’s a very dangerous time for her.”
On the same day as Lindsay’s recent arrest, the actress was charged in California with three misdemeanors resulting from a prior incident in which Lindsay allegedly lied to authorities about the details of an auto accident.
As for Lindsay’s infamous Nov. 9 decision to bail on Barbara in favor of a Good Morning America interview to promote Liz & Dick? Barbara blames the choice on the actress’s press representatives.
“I think it was unwise,” she says. “I think if people understood her, what her background was and what her demons were, they might have a different feeling about her.” - via In Touch Weekly Magazine.
