BARBRA STREISAND

<<PREVIOUS

Libby

Yellow. I was wearing yellow.

Barbra

Uh, huh.

Libby

I was only about 28 rows behind you, I had a tickle in my throat and I remember thinking "Jeez I hope my coughing isn't bothering Barbra" It's kind of bothered me all this years thinking that I might have spoiled the evening somehow.

Barbra

Don't worry, I didn't hear you.

Libby

Sometimes it sounded like I was choking--some people were really worried.

Barbra

No, I didn't hear a thing.

Libby

I'd had a gin fizz.

Barbra

Oh.

Libby

I could've died.

Barbra

I'm sorry I don't remember seeing you as far as I know this is the first time I laid eyes on you.

Libby

What about the Hollywood Bowl? The Riviera Hotel, the MGM Grand? I was at all of them.

Barbra

I'm very sorry.

Libby

I'm just kind of disappointed I'm a really big fan. I named my second child after you until my husband started calling her Connie. I know all the words to all of your songs even the ones in Latin even if I don't know what they mean.

My first wedding song was your cover of What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? in 1970, Make It Like A Memory in 81 for my second wedding and Hello Dolly for my third. You always gave me so much inspiration because we are so alike. Let's face it we're both no spring chickens, we both aren't oil paintings. I am so much younger than you so when I would watch you on stage I'd think "Boy if she can do it anyone can".

I bought one of your toe nail clippings off E-Bay for 1400 bucks. It's still got a little coral nail polish on it--would you like to see it?

Barbra

No thank you.
