[Blind Gossip] Gayle King recently conducted an interview with Barbra Streisand.
King started the discussion by asking if the singer has ever regretted partnering with any entertainers over her career.
“Who have you enjoyed the most and who’s a jerk? If you don’t want to give names, we’ll take initials.”
Streisand diplomatically replied, “Everyone was superb.”
“Nooo,” King replied.
Streisand added, “Everyone was such a delight. Sometimes… when you work with mediocre talents, they feel entitled. They act like stars. Genuinely talented people don’t. There are manners. Professional manners and public manners. You say to yourself, ‘Oh my God, this person is yelling to find a tissue? Yelling for a line?’ They don’t understand that you can’t do that. I don’t yell.”
So Barbra clearly worked with some people she considers “mediocre talents” and witnessed them acting unprofessionally. About whom was she speaking?
