Barbra Streisand Memoir Promises More Lurid Headlines Than Britney, Jada, John Stamos Combined (All Fake)


So far this month Jada Pinkett Smith, John Stamos, Kerry Washington, and Britney Spears have unloaded all their personal secrets on the public upon publishing their memoirs. Adultery, abortion, Oscar slaps, Tony Danza cucking, secret paternity– all of it has come pouring out despite readers crying Stop!

Now here are ten fake revelations from Barbra Streisand’s memoir, “My Name is Barbra,” to be published November 7th:

First husband Elliot Gould forced her to eat Halvah once a week.

Robert Redford said he’d only do The Way We Were if she promised not to sing People between takes.

To keep in character she only shopped in boy’s departments and raided her kid’s closet while shooting Yentl.

Don Johnson wanted her to get an abortion but she wasn’t pregnant.

James Brolin likes her to dress up as a nurse and he plays doctor from “Marcus Welby.”

She got confused in the Clinton White House when they sent her to Lincoln’s bedroom.

She and Elliot Gould have been living apart for 50 years.

Her split with hairdresser boyfriend Jon Peters was over conditioner. He was using all of hers in the shower.

She never really liked Donna Karan’s designs, but the woman kept threatening to sing at her parties if she didn’t wear them.

She tried to get a nose job three times but doctors told her it would ruin her look.

When they tied for Best Actress in 1968, Katharine Hepburn grabbed the first statue and hid Barbra’s behind a plant.

Every time Donna Summer sang Enough is Enough, she meant it.

The mirror originally had three faces but it wasn’t in the budget.

All the years she was trying to produce The Normal Heart she thought it was a documentary about cardiology.

She considered “Nuts” for the title of the book. (just kidding!)
