Barbara Walters on Lindsay Lohan Rescheduling Interview: ‘I Should Live So Long’ (VIDEO)

She tells Jay Leno that the timing for her interview wasn't right.

A side by side comparison of the stars.
Barbara Walters is still stinging over her canceled interview with Lindsay Lohan.

“She said [she’d do it] when it’s right,” Walters said on The View Wednesday. “I should live so long.”

The co-host then quickly softened her stance, saying, “I want to take it back. I will say this — I would 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,” Walters continued. “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 an appearance on Tuesday night’s Tonight Show with Jay Leno, where Lindsay discussed her Walters’ withdrawal and said she’d reschedule when the timing was right.

So is Walters jealous of Jay? Not after getting a call from the main man himself.

“I heard she was going to do Jay,” Walters said. “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.”

This isn’t the first time Walters has commented on the canceled interview. On the Nov. 12 episode of The View, she said, “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.”

Lohan’s Liz and Dick airs Sunday night at 9 PM on Lifetime.
