Did you know that Barbra Streisand is on the road and one of her stops was Houston? That is pretty shocking, but what is even more shocking is that she met another Barbara before she hit the stage. That Babs is First Lady Barbara Bush and her husband President George Bush. Who would have ever thought that one of the biggest Democrats in Hollywood would be so happy to hang out with a Republican President and his First Lady.
The admiration didn’t stop there. After their green room exchange, she welcomed them to join her on stage. She was more than happy to share the spotlight with them, as she said, “The standing ovation they received when I introduced them from the stage was truly moving.”
I knew we were experiencing Hell on Earth the day Trump was elected President, now it looks like it froze over. What a wacky November.
Sometimes things just leave you speechless. For example, Kim Kardashian added a crying faced Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and Donald Trump to her Emoji collection and that leaves me with no words. Well maybe one, 💩.
Anthony Weiner was in the news again for allegedly Tweeting photos of his crotch to an unknown woman. The disgraced politician denied the claim, but that didn’t stop Conan O’Brien for having some fun with the image.
Things I will never unsee, but it was well worth it because I don’t remember the last time I laughed so hard! Do you?
It is so hot in Philadelphia that the Democratic National Convention called in the auxiliary to cool things off. Who better than the Frozen sisters, Elsa and Anna, to bring the temperature down to comfortable levels in no time? No one. Well maybe a Republican, but really Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell are a better and much prettier alternative!
Tonight during the Democratic National Convention several Broadway stars, many who also have been on television, sang Burt Bacharach’s What the World Needs Now, and it was painfully awful.
You know it is bad when someone decided to put The Brady Bunch’s Eve Plumb in the middle and several people tried to Marcia Marcia Marcia her by not giving her the mic.
To make matters worse, they might be Broadway stars, but that doesn’t mean they can sing a song together. Not only did their voices not mesh together, several of them cannot sing that particular type of tune. Audra McDonald is one of the most beautiful singers, but this song was not made for her. Same goes for Idina Menzel.
Finally, they saved the worst for last. Just when you think The View was the worst thing that Rosie Perez could have ever done to us, turns out singing is a million times more irritating.
The ultimate way to tell how bad this performance was, Broadway’s newest darling Lin-Manuel Miranda was not even part of it. Where was he?
But I will end this on a positive note. It was nice to see Cagney & Lacey aka Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly sharing the mic as the belted out the chorus.
