Open Post: Hosted By Barbra Streisand Letting Us Know That She’s Not A Fan Of The 2018 Remake Of “A Star Is Born”
Over the weekend Barbra Streisand appeared on the Australian talk show, The Sunday Project, and lightly dragged the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper adaptation of A Star is Born. Barbra starred in the 1976 version with Kris Kristofferson. Judy Garland led the 1954 adaptation. And the original 1937 film starred Janet Gaynor. According to Barbra, the 2018 version was “the wrong idea.” She thinks it should have been more original, like her version of the story. Damned if you honor Barbra, damned if you don’t.
In the wake of the murder of 46-year-old George Floyd, we’ve learned that George left behind five children, a fact that makes a truly awful situation another level of awful. But along with demanding justice for George’s family, some high-profile people have been doing what they can to ensure that George’s youngest child, his 6-year-old daughter Gianna, doesn’t have to worry about finances as she grows up. Kanye West set up a college fund for Gianna. And now we’re learning that Barbra Streisand has made sure Gianna will always have some cash stored in her mouse ears, by purchasing Disney stock in Gianna’s name.
Patti LuPone Gave Her Thoughts On “Cats” And Barbra Streisand As Mama Rose On “Watch What Happens Live”
Here’s an easy one: What do Broadway legend Patti LuPone and professional shit-stirrer Andy Cohen have in common?
Answer: Both their Suns are in DRAMA, and their Moons are in SHADE.
This is why I never miss Patti on Watch What Happens Live!
Since recent corona-recoverer Andy knows La LuPone is afflicted by the same curse as Jim Carrey in Liar Liar, he can ask her whatever “messy” (hey, Lil’ Kim and Titus Burgess’ word, not mine) questions he wants and receive golden truth nuggets!
Jennifer Lopez Talked About The Time Barbra Streisand Asked To See Her Pink Diamond Engagement Ring From Ben Affleck
Remember that gigantic pink diamond engagement ring that was the modest crown jewel of the Bennifer 1.0 kingdom? Well, Jennifer Lopez talked about it. Sure, now she’s got an even bigger 16-carat engagement ring from her new piece, Alex Rodriguez, but the pink diamond that Ben Affleck bought her in the early-aughts set the stage for rich bitches everywhere getting colored-diamond engagement rings. Trendsetter of the uber-elite? I can’t think of anything to be less proud of!
Many people have spent the past few days saying Donald Trump’s name over and over (sometimes with as much pissed-off energy as a human body can summon). Mariah Carey might be feeling that sentiment, but she certainly isn’t letting the words “President Trump” come from her. Because Mariah recently let it be known that Trump isn’t her President.
All the stores in Barbra Streisand underground mall are closed and the needlepoint “Bless This Mess” banner, I’m sure she has in her living room, has been lowered to half mast in loving memory of Sammie, Babs’ beloved Coton de Tulear. Sammie walked this earth from May 2003 – May 2017. And then again, and again. Shortly after Sammie’s death, Barbra introduced the world to Scarlet (aka Sammie 2) and Violet (Sammie 3), the clones she had made from her DNA. Yesterday, Barbra posted a picture on Instagram of the new Sammies and their “cousin” Fanny (Fanny came from the same breeder as Sammie, but does not share her DNA) propped up on Original Recipe Sammie’s grave looking like a fresh crop of mushrooms after a particularly damp spring.
