Baba Wawa had landed LiLo for an exclusive interview on 20/20 set to premiere this Friday, but her management team abruptly pulled Lindsay from the project. And while Barbara was already annoyed at the last minute bailout, she was furious that Lindsay then went directly to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno for an interview because they promised to only ask her softball questions. And as she is prone to doing these days, Barbara used The View as a platform to look directly into the camera and put someone on blast.
"If they'd 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," said Barbara on The View yesterday morning. She also claimed the excuse 20/20 got from Lindsay's team for the pullout was total BS, i.e. Lindsay just wasn't "feeling up to it."
So far, no word from Camp LiLo on the controversy...yet another sign this new PR team really might know what they're doing.
What do you think of Barbara putting Lindsay on blast?
