Wondering what's been going on with Lindsay Lohan lately? You might get some answers soon.

E! News confirms that the troubled star will be having a special sit-down interview with the one and only Barbara Walters.

And you know you can always count on Barbara to get down to the nitty-gritty.

In a statement, a rep for Lifetime network, which is set to air the LiLo-headlined Liz & Dick on Nov. 25, tells E! News: "Lindsay Lohan is scheduled to sit down with Barbara Walters for a 20/20 interview that will air Friday, Nov. 16, at 10 p.m. ET."

Sources tell E! News that Walters went to the set of Liz & Dick during production, where Lindsay showed her some behind-the-scenes action and participated in some interviews.

So in a couple of weeks, this material, plus a new, no-holds-barred interview that Lindsay will do with Barbara, is expected to be combined into the ABC prime-time special.

LiLo agreed to the interview as she greatly admires Walters and knows that the interview will be done with respect, a source told E! News.
