Stritch Returns!

Mere weeks in Detroit and she's already back to hang with Liza and Bernadette.

I wonder if she took the bus down.

Who is that granola lesbian with Edward Albee?

"The Stella Adler Studio of Acting presented their Eighth Annual Stella by Starlight Benefit Gala last night at Espace in New York City. This year's honorees included acting luminaries Elaine Stritch and George Takei..."

Schocking!!!!! George Takei, the man who completely destroyed the reputation of the entire gay community (according to DL pearl clutchers) gets an award.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 406/11/2013

Talk about a motley (and needy) crew! So much for Stella Adler's reputation. Did anyone ask Lainie how things are going in Detroit? Has she done anything at the Senior Center yet?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 506/11/2013

Why do I think she didn't stay overnight at the Carlyle?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 606/11/2013

She fell off the wagon.

Stritch!

Elaine is now on a cane.

Good God, that gallery looks like a group assembled for their last rites.

She deserved an Oscar nomination for her work in the film 'September'

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1106/11/2013

Yes, R11, we sincerely hope Ms. Stritch gets everything she deserves.

"Edward Albee and guest" = "Edward Albee and boy toy"

Who's the old queen escorting Liza?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1406/11/2013

Could be Edward Albee and Lez-toy.

Elaine had gone out to buy some english muffins as a thank you.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1506/11/2013

Who gave Albee that leather blazer? He hasn't taken it off for fucking years!

Elaine's left eye is in the completely wrong direction now - what happened? Sondheim's eyes appear to have vanished years ago.

Alec looks hot

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1706/11/2013

Stella Adler was a first grade cunt. She hated women who took her class, lavished herself on the men.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1806/11/2013

R18, she'd fit right in here.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 1906/11/2013

Yeah why does Edward Albee's date look like Tilda Swinton?

Its a mix between Tilda, Charles Manson circa 1969, and a slapped ass.

Plus Bernadette is wearing a cross necklace.

Is she a born again fundie now who will renounce the gays?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 2106/11/2013

She's probably just "spiritual."

Then again, doesn't she hang out with Mary Tyler Moore?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 2206/11/2013

God I hope MTM hasn't turned Bernadette into a fundie. Looking through pics of Bernadette on wireimage she wwears the cross in a lot of pics. Maybe she's a liberal christian?

You guys need to watch Woody Allen September.

She gave a much better performance than Olympia Dukakis in Moonstruck (who won the Oscar that year)

If Olympia and Elaine went head to head for the Oscar, Elaine would have won.

She had a stand-out performance

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 2806/11/2013

Stritch is very good in September, the best thing in that can't-believe-it's-only-82-minutes-Woody-trying-to-be-Bergman-again snoozer.

But Olympia as Rose Castorini rules.

She doesn't look likes she'll be around much longer.

Liza looks... interesting.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3206/11/2013

I wish some would interview Bernadette about her faith and see what she believes.

I know she is pro gay so I'm inclined to put her with Chenoweth and not Victoria Jackson. Lol

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3306/11/2013

Wow, I thought once you went in to a retirement home outings without a nurse were restricted.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3406/11/2013

And Liza and Bernie make such a fine pair of nurses for poor Elaine, who can't even tell them apart.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3506/11/2013

the face on Liza! These new chipmunk cheeks like Liza's, Madonna's - Bernadette Peters looks so good in comparison. She has not had work done, has she?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3606/11/2013

Bernadette has a very smooth neck for someone her age.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3706/11/2013

It looks like Liza has had her mouth,uh... reduced?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3806/11/2013

I wonder if Strichy and Liza hid their drinking from each other? I mean, they both know that the other is off the wagon, but I wonder if they pretend not to notice...

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 3906/11/2013

Liza is now twenty years older than her Mother lived to be but doesn't look significantly worse. Which is a bad statement as to how bad Judy looked in the end.

Liza, Elaine, and Bernadette look like three of the Seven Deadly Sins in those pics.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4406/12/2013

Do you think it's true Stritch lunched with Diane Paulus about replacing Andrea Martin in Pippin when it goes on tour? Why not? Elaine could always hang her career on a very thin wire? (without a net) when she was in her prime two years ago. In the meantime, back to Detroit!

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4506/12/2013

[quote]It looks like Liza has had her mouth,uh... reduced?

Liza did have surgery on her mouth last fall.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4606/12/2013

Both of Stritch's sisters died at age 90 so she's got a little under two years to match them.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4706/12/2013

Bernadette Peters looks amazing. There's really something to be said for finding one's style and sticking with it. She's practically ageless.

But then again, she obviously takes great care of herself. Liza's "look" has remained basically the same over the years too, but she's not really holding up too well, is she?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4806/12/2013

Do you think Nurse Bernadette could take care of BOTH Lainie and Liza, and maybe put together a senior citizen regional revival of Girls 70 Girls, or whatever it is called?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 4906/12/2013

Poor Elaine. They ran her out of Michigan sooner than I'd thought.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5006/12/2013

I actually feel sorry for her in this new interview. Her choices are either a condo in Detroit or a TV show with Kirstie Alley. Expect her to campaign for euthanasia soon.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5106/12/2013

Poor Elaine. She sounds miserable.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5206/12/2013

Oh. I think she's wonderful. Because of DL I rented "Elaine Stritch: At Liberty" and she was awesome. What a fantastic, exciting career and she certainly was/is a unique talent.

No matter what she was superb on "30 Rock". A few weeks ago I saw a rerun and there was an exchange between her and Alec Baldwin that perfectly summed up their relationship on the show.

They were both yelling at each other/talking over each other --

Jack: I knew you wouldn't support me. Like that time I won that science award in high schoo...

Colleen: It should have gone to the other boy!

Come to think of it, that's the kind of conversation I would have had with my mother.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5306/13/2013

Getting old sucks, and the booze can't be helping.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5406/13/2013

Does Elaine have any income? She never really was a top star who made lots of money, and she became more famous latterly for her resilience and survival instincts. Does she get anything from her husband's muffin company, or is she dependent on her family's wealth? Even though she's the skinflint of the 21st Century, I do worry about how she manages, especially as she herself points out, "Nothing is comped in Michigan."

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5506/13/2013

Actually Stritch is THE skinflint of two centuries: the 20th and 21st. She's been around, getting comped wherever possible, for a long, long time!

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5606/13/2013

I would have thought she would have had enough money to stay in NY area with full-time care. I mean lots of people have home health aides to look after them. It's not like she's an invalid either.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5706/13/2013

She's the niece of Cardinal Stritch and the suburb she lives in is a wealthy one. There's gotta be family money.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5806/13/2013

"She's the niece of Cardinal Stritch and the suburb she lives in is a wealthy one. There's gotta be family money."

I know the church pays for cardinals to live in splendor during their lifetimes, but do they generally accumulate wealth that they can leave to nieces and nephews when they die?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 5906/13/2013

She's set for money but not for sympathy or ego-feeding attention.

I doubt she knows how to entertain herself.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6006/13/2013

Why does everyone think Elaine has fallen off the wagon? Evidence, please?

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6106/13/2013

I KNEW she would hate Michigan. I know she is old and has health issues but after a lifetime in NYC you can't go to fucking Detroit and be happy. I bet she comes back to New York. Hell, she could certainly afford some more modest digs than the Carlyle to live in. This sounds morbid but I hope that when her time comes, she gets to die in the city she loves. And it AIN'T Detroit!

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6206/13/2013

There's no way she'll move back to NYC. She isn't getting any better. She has trouble getting around and has displayed memory and concentration lapses. Her health situation is why she moved to be near family.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6306/13/2013

She said she was drinking again in an interview, I believe.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6406/16/2013

She needs a new show. Jane Lynch will be leaving ANNIE soon...

"There's no way she'll move back to NYC. She isn't getting any better. She has trouble getting around and has displayed memory and concentration lapses. Her health situation is why she moved to be near family."

Unless one of those nieces or nephews is gonna let her move in with them (fat chance), she's gonna end up needing round-the-clock health aides either in NYC or Detroit - might as well do it in NYC where she can get out (with an aide) and have fun until whatever time she becomes totally bedridden.

However weird the situation was with Celeste Holm and that fifty-years-younger, probably-gay husband, and however frail she may have been when he wheeled her out to openings or whatever, I still think it must have been nice for her to be in NYC and still feel some connection to show biz, even if she was a little out-to-lunch by the end. Seems like a nicer way for an actress to spend her last few years than withering away in some nursing home in Detroit. And Stritch would have been the last actress I ever would have expected to want that.

[quote]Her health situation is why she moved to be near family.

She was evicted from the Carlisle for non-payment of rent. She had no money and nowhere to go, except with relatives in Michigan.

If you pay for her airfare, housing, and per diem, she'll attend your New York event too.

I heard that too R68,from someone at Nicolosi & Co.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 6906/16/2013

Elaine is from a very well-to-do family. I assume she got a few bucks from her parent's estate. She was once married to John Bay actor/ writer/muffin heir (gay, but nobody says so except the Broadway press agent I know), and maybe got a few sheckels from his estate. She sold her house in Sag Harbor a few years ago for a few million. She has worked her whole adult life and might have actually saved a few bucks. She was recently featured on a multi-episode arc on "30 Rock", which I'm sure paid nicely in the $20,000 per episode range. I'm certain she receives the maximum pension from Actor's Equity they offer. I think it's in the $8,000-$9,000 thousand a month range, and she probably receives a smaller pension from SAG to boot.

Perhaps she isn't filthy rich, but I don't think she's broke by any means.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 7006/17/2013

She might not have been paying the Carlyle but she plopped down almost $1.5 mil for her new condo in Michigan.

Drinking can go through lots of dollars in no time.

by Angela Lansbury, 2 plays lined up bitches. reply 7206/17/2013

Has Elaine gone back to Detroit or is she still in NYC looking for handouts with a free car service? New York isn't quite the same without her panhandling.

Elaine's nieces and nephews, aka "caretakers" aka "slaves" have to be in late middle-age. I wonder how they're coping with Auntie Elaine when they're at relatively advanced ages themselves.

The same way Elaine is....with plenty of booze.
