Barbra Streisand 992 Page Memoir Propelled to Top of Best Sellers After CBS Sunday Morning Interview


Call her a best seller.

Before her appearance this morning on “CBS Sunday Morning,” Barbra Streisand was at number 25 on Amazon with her memoir.

The 992 page “Call Me Barbra” will be published Tuesday morning.

But after her interview with Gayle King, Barbra rose to number 4 on Amazon. She’s all set. The hefty tome retails for thirty two bucks.

In the interview, Streisand told King she didn’t want to sing live again — although you know she will if the ticket prices are high enough.

The rest of the interview was about her stern mother, her father who died young, some passing references to old romances, a quote from husband James Brolin.

The most revealing part of the interview was King getting a tour of some of Streisand’s mansion which includes a mall like set up of fake “shops” with her different collections. All I could think was, Sotheby’s and Christie’s must be panting at the door for an auction one day! Crazy!
