Patti LuPone wants you to know she has rotavirus and not COVID-19
December 27th, 2021 under Patti LuPone. [ Comments: none ]

A little over a week ago, there was a story in The New York Post that a performance of Company was abruptly cancelled when a cast member threw up on another cast member backstage. The article made it clear it was because said cast member had food poisoning.

Today, we found out that that cast member is Patti LuPone. That is because she posted an update on her condition to clear up the rumors being said about her.

Hi Dolls. I don’t normally do this but since there are a few little shits out there writing false things about Company, here’s the truth: I missed 2 shows with a rotavirus. My toilet can confirm this. Two other actors contracted the same rotavirus. Poor Claybourne [Elder] and his puke-stained flight attendant uniform can confirm, too.

While we’ve had a couple cases of Covid in the company, we’ve had exemplary understudies covering those roles, so the show was able to go on. You should all know that the Jacobs and the production of Company is one of the best tested on Broadway. We’re all getting PCR probed every night.

We currently cannot field a crew of stagehands to run the show safely. Our backstage crew is among the best I have ever worked with and I hope they return to us soon. These people are putting their health at just as much risk as we are onstage, and we ask that you please be patient while everyone gets better, so we can continue our run of Company.

I hope she is better soon because she should be making people feel like shit, and she shouldn’t feel like sh!t because of something that is making her sh!t.


Patti LuPone responds to the Donald Trump/Evita comparisons
October 5th, 2020 under Donald Trump, Patti LuPone. [ Comments: 1 ]

Donald Trump checked himself out of the hospital today and immediately went back to the White House. When he got there, he stood on the balcony, without a mask and gasping for air as he looked down on the press.

That moment reminded people of the extremely powerful scene in the Broadway musical Evita when Eva Perón sings Don’t Cry for Me Argentina from her balcony to the people of her country.

When Patti LuPone, who originated the role in 1979, saw that people were making the comparison, she had to stand up on her balcony and respond to all of her Twitter followers. “I still have the lung power and I wore less makeup. This revival is closing November 3rd,” she wrote.

There is only one person she hates more than Glenn Close, and it is Donald Trump.

A majority of Americans agree with her. We loathe him, especially after today, when he declared that we should not be afraid of COVID-19. He just handed his followers Kool-Aid, and they will guzzle down the cyanide-laced drink with a big smile on their face. He literally shot America on Fifth Avenue, and they are like, “Thank you, sir. Can I have another?”

Vote him out to save America and Americans. If we don’t, his ignorance, narcism and grandiose
behavior will kill us all.


Andrew Rannells spills the tea on his diner with Patti LuPone and Glenn Close
June 25th, 2020 under Andrew Rannells, Andy Cohen, Glenn Close, Jon Hamm, Patti LuPone. [ Comments: none ]

A few weeks ago, when Patti LuPone was on Watch What Happens Live, she talked about the fateful night she had with Andrew Rannells, Jon Hamm, and her sworn enemy Glenn Close.

The two legendary actresses do not get along because LuPone was slated to play the lead in Sunset Boulevard, but they gave the role to Glenn Close instead. Needless to say, since then Lupone has not been a fan of Close’s.

So what happened when the two ladies got close to each other on a night out in Manhattan. According to LuPone, she warned her friend Jon Hamm that he better not f*ck her.

That was towards the end of that night, a night we all wish we could have been a fly on the wall. While we were not, Rannells was. Yesterday, when he was on WWHL, he gave some more details to Andy Cohen about what happened inbetween their chance meeting until the threat.

He says the three of them were out at a restaurant, and they went to talk to some friends. When they got back to the booth, Close was sitting there all by herself. The three joined her and chatted for a while. Since both divas are ladies, they acted civilly towards each other. However, you could feel the tension between them.

He probably felt it because LuPone kept saying to him that Close better not try to f*ck Hamm or that she would lose it. No one lost anything that night, but Rannels had a night he will never forget.

I can’t wait to hear what Hamm has to say about it. He better ham it up for the cameras!

I also hope that some big Broadway producer casts LuPone and Close in a revival of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. Ryan Murphy would have the next Feud unfold before our very eyes.


Patti LuPone threatened Jon Hamm about f*cking Glenn Close!
April 28th, 2020 under Andrew Rannells, Andy Cohen, Glenn Close, Jon Hamm, Patti LuPone. [ Comments: none ]

Patti LuPone was on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and she was spilling the tea to Andy Cohen. The actress said that Barbra Streisand is 50 years too old to play Gypsy, the time she destroyed a dressing room when she got fired from a play in London, and what she thought of playing Madonna’s mother in Evita.

My favorite spilled tea is when she talked about how Glenn Close crashed her get together with Jon Hamm and Rannells. The three of them were having drinks in Manhattan when Close came over and sat next to the Mad Men star. After the Fatal Attraction star left, LuPone said to Hamm, “If you f*ck her, I will never speak to you again.” With that stern warning, he did not go home with her. Which is a good thing because who wants her rabbit soup.

Talking about vengeance, why is LuPone so hasty towards Close? My friend Michael gave me the deets. Close was starring as Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, and she was a huge hit. So much so, they asked her to do the role on Broadway. There was only one problem, LuPone was already offered the role. Therefore, LuPone found out she was fired in the papers, and because of that, she is not a fan of Close.

I think the two should kiss, makeup, and star in a Broadway rendition of Whatever Happened to Baby Jane. I would pay a lot of money to see that pairing.


Who doesn’t want to be part of this Conga Line?
December 2nd, 2019 under Dylan McDermott Dermot Mulroney, Patti LuPone. [ Comments: 1 ]

I don’t know about you, but I cannot remember the last time I was part of a Conga Line. However, Dylan McDermott can tell you the last time he had his hands on someone’s shoulders and who was shaking their tuchas in front of him.

It was Thanksgiving with Patti LuPone, Nathan Lane and Joe Mantegna leading the way. No matter how hungry you are, there is always time for a Conga. Come on, shake your body baby, do the Conga.

Now, I remember the last time I did the group dance, I was in Miami at a Christmas party. We were all having a blast. That and we were all drinking the special egg nog.

This holiday, get your friends and family to join in and do a Conga Line or the Bunny Hop. It will break whatever tension is going on. Let’s be honest; there is always tension that needs to be broken up during the holidays!
