[Village Voice] Which Oscar winner tried to take her kids backstage to meet the stars of a show they’d just seen, but was completely unrecognized by security, who told her she could just wait by the stage door like everyone else? (She huffed and replied, “Well, it’s just that I’m an actor, too” before actually announcing her name in hopes of gaining quicker entrée. Yes, she went there. Still, no dice.)
[Village Voice] Which movie star who was recently on Broadway is such a challenging diva that when an assistant of hers quit after 10 days, she got a call from another former assistant saying “Congratulations!”?
[Village Voice] Which really old Broadway legend—not the free-dinner one—tells friends that she only got pregnant because her ex-athlete husband punctured holes in her diaphragm? (Her offspring isn’t thrilled about it, believe me.)

[Village Voice] Which Tony nominee is such a diva she wouldn’t even put her own fingers down her throat to vomit? (She’d have her dresser do it. Talk about outsourcing.)

BlindGossip – While filming a TV pilot a few months ago, this actor and actress chatted between takes. He is openly gay and is best known for his work on Broadway. She is a comedic actress and a closeted lesbian. She asked him if he knew of any lesbian bars in the local area.
