Most of them look like total shit. Tom Hanks looks the worst he has ever looked. Bloated, baggy eyed and pale. Like an old drunk.
Elaine has something wonky going on with her right eye, too.
Liza looks good in the pics of her alone. REALLY good.
Bernadette looks great.
Who are those two blond queens with her in some pics? That one young guy has crazy eyes and looks like he thinks he is just all that and a bag of chips.
The young guy is Ryan Herlicka, an actor. he was in the revival of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC with Catherine Zeta Jones who was replaced by Bernadette Peters.
[quote]Liza looks good in the pics of her alone. REALLY good.
I agree. In those pics, yes.
OMG! It's Hunter Ryan Headlicker!
He looks like a Thunderbird puppet.
Rob Bowman shows up as the pianist in other photos.
Where the hell am i?
Rita, you're there.... in one picture.
You can tell by the look on his (puffy) face that Tom Hanks is thinking, "I'm a movie star. I don't know any of you people. Who IS this old bat? I thought Bea Arthur was dead."
Elaine is one of those people who figured it all out so late in life. It means we all can. Proves you never stop improving.
Should I be ashamed to admit I bought Rita Wilson's CD?
Liza and Bernadette both showed up BUT seperately. Must not be besties.
Every queen would have gone nuts in the place if they arrived together and joined Elaine for a threeway duet of Broadway Baby
Hunter "Losing My Mind" R.H.
Is anyone else curious why Elaine is moving and retiring to godforasken Birmingham, MI of all places!? I realize she and Madonna, both bitches, grew up there, but still. You would think she could hire, or her many Broadway friends could if money were an issue, a caretaker so she could live out the rest of her days at the Carlyle in the city she loves. Or, at the very least, Jan Maxwell could offer to put her up in her palatial rent-subsidized Manhattan Plaza digs. But she probably would charge Stritch a fortune for a tiny maid's room without a window. It's a conundrum.
I just spit soda all over my keyboard at that pic OP.
When did Liza become Asian?
liza had surgery on her mouth last year. She looks lopsided. I mean her mouth not her person although.....

It doesn't look lopsided to me.
Oh, please, please, please, I hope that HBO, Showtime, anybody taped this.

Elaine is old, very old. Elaine is a pain in the ass, a huge pain in the ass. Elaine is drinking again, at least from time to time, and she's an 88 year-old diabetic. I saw her last year at Town Hall, and she was greatly diminished from her "At Liberty" senior peak.
I would imagine she needs some help just getting around, and her with her daily healthcare. I would imagine she has a nice Equity pension (the maximum is about 9 grand a month, I think), a little savings, maybe very small pensions from SAG, AFTRA and Social Security. Still, I would guess living at The Carlyle must run 10 grand a month alone. Maybe she just wants to be closer to her nieces and nephews, and let them assist her in her daily needs. Why not help them instead of handing it all over to The Actor's Fund Home in Englewood?
Would some celebrity just die of a horrific death already? I'm bored.
Her pianist is nice and nicely hung.
I'm sure her young relatives are less than thrilled, and there is no guarantee she'll share her wealth with them. She makes the Weisslers look kind and generous. The tales of her meanness, both to people and with money, are legion. And remember - only the good die young.
This isn't rocket science. She is ancient and has SAID that she doesn't have the energy anymore and that she does want to be closer to family. She said she doesn't want to rehearse for anything anymore and that is what performing requires.
And she can't remember lines anymore.
She said this all in an interview recently.
I've never thought Tom Hanks was a good looking guy, but man he looks just awful now. And that mustache - is that for some part he's playing? WTF?
Good lord, Tom Hanks looks like my angry Republican gun-toting beer-swilling Polish uncle. And that is not a good thing.

I won't be wiping that old broad's ass anytime soon thankyouverymuch.
neice & nephew thoughts
The mustache is for a role he's now playing on Broadway.
Will the Actor's Fund be able to fly me out there once a week to do her hair?
Hair by Kenneth (formely of Oh, Diane!)
Liza looks great--and the best in the whole bunch who were photographed. Bernardette not so much.
I've never seen a website crueler to old people than this one. And yet, it seems most of the people here are old. Gay self-loathing ?
Give me one specific example how Elaine has been cruel to people or stingy with money !
A (very straight) friend and I were in the car the other day when Sirius played Liza singing some 1940s standard. He didn't recognize her voice and asked me who it was. When I told him, he frowned and said, "Does she have some sort of speech impediment? She's saying all her S's as if they were SH's. Sort of 'schlurring her wordsh.'"
I guffawed, and asked him if he'd been reading Datalounge.
If Elaine's been falling as much as she implied then she won't be around for much longer. Oldsters who start falling regularly typically die within a year.
[quote]Liza looks good in the pics of her alone. REALLY good.
And it's PURTY!
It's been thrilling to talk to you too, r3. And I'll remember it.
Whaaat? How can she be leaving The Carlyle? She must have had a falling out with the management. I have it on pretty good authority that the terms of her contract included a substantial reduction in her her housing costs in exchange for regularly scheduled performances. Almost gratis.
I saw three of her shows there. The second time I sat at the bar (what a great deal. $75 plus the dinner charge and you had better sight lines) and being polite shared a hello with the woman next to me. Turns out it was Elaine's assistant.
The only disconcerting part of the evening was watching Elaine walk to the back of the bar at one point and hike her skirt to give herself a shot in the leg. Insulin, I think.
The third night I was there the aide and I chatted and she said things were getting rocky. I joked with her and asked when she was writing her book about her years with Ms Stritch. She something along the lines of "I try to forget most of it."
Elaine's shows at The Carlyle were always good for people watching since many celebs live upstairs and would watch the show. Warren Beatty and his wife were often in the crowd the nights I was lucky enough to see the show.
Elaine looks radiantly happy. I'm sure she is making the right move.
