To put it lightly, Walters wasn’t happy that Lindsay hadn’t been forthcoming. Rumor has it, she canceled the interview because she didn’t want to talk about her tumultuous personal life. Recently, Lindsay has been in trouble for lying to police after a car accident, and apparently lying to her father about her mother’s cocaine use.

On Tuesday, Lindsay sat down with Jay Leno for the aforementioned interview, and he asked why she’d bailed on Walters.
“You know, it’s just the timing wasn’t right right now,” she said. “I love her, I’m a big fan of Barbara Walters, I met her when I was very young, and so, when it’s right, she knows she’ll be the first person I sit down with… it’s all good. I spoke to her people that she works with and everything.”
