In the space of a couple days, Lindsay Lohan and her mother, Dina Lohan got into an insane crack fight, Michael Lohan leaked Lindsay’s phone call to him, and everyone found out that Dina’s been using Lindsay as her own personal coin purse. So now’s a good time for Lindsay to sit down with Barbara Walters for the softests of softball interviews. TMZ reports:

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has been close to Walters for years and that Barbara reached out to her about doing an interview when it was announced she’d be playing Liz Taylor in the upcoming Liz & Dick biopic. We’re told LiLo has been hesitant about sit-down interviews because she fears being asked questions she’s not prepared for. But our sources say Lindsay trusts Barbara not to take things too far. According to our sources, Lindsay and Barbara will sit down sometime in the next few weeks. We’re told the interview will focus on the parallels between the lives of Lindsay and Liz Taylor — things like child stardom, a rough childhood, living life in the public, and also dealing with addiction.

Actually, this is perfect, because Barbara lobs as many softball questions as she does W sounds. Seriously, Barbara has done interviews with Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, and managed to get through them without asking questions like, “Do you feel bad for having such little talent?” or “You’re still alive. What can you do to fix that?” Anyway, some people may be asking why Lindsay would agree to sit down for an interview now of all times? Well, I’m sure the fact that Dina is $1.3 Million in debt has nothing to do with it. From IBT

The 50-year-old is in dire financial straits and at risk of losing to foreclosure her $1.1 million home in Merrick, N.Y., according to the New York Post. Dina Lohan reportedly has a $914,000 mortgage on the home, and owes another $302,000 because of a lien involving a former business associate. Some of her smaller debts include unpaid bills to her divorce attorney, landscaper, dentist, and a BMW dealership.

So I’m assuming this is went down…

Barbara: He- Hewwo?
Dina: Okay, Lindsay will do that interview now.
Barbara: Who is this? It’s four o’cwock in the mowning, and I can smell gin thwough the weceiver.
Dina: Hold on, I’m getting another call … hello, gin? It’s me, Dina. You still up, ’cause-
Barbara: I’m hanging up now.
