Of course she's being interviewed by the dashing, horsehung Mo Rocca.

After interviewing both Shitbra and Cunt Lavin, Mo deserves hazard pay. He's doing the lord's work, for sure.

Will she just crawl under the porch and die already?

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 26Last Sunday at 5:31 AM

Christ, she’s making out that she’s the real life Norma Rae showing up at events in her waitress costume to support woman’s equal rights. I bet that uniform was stinky as hell, and they smelled her 10 minutes before she arrived.

She gave up a huge Broadway career for that series, it took a generation for New York to recover.

LOL at Mo Rocca asking her if she preferred "sweeeeeet!" or "Boppity Bop."

Why didn't Beth Howland ever sing on Alice? She came from the musical theater like Lavin did, yet they never gave her any kind of musical number.

Diane Ladd got to sing, Phillip McKeon even got to sing. But the most Beth did was tap dance.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 46Last Sunday at 7:20 AM

r46, would Linda stand for that? I don't think so...imagine the meltdown.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 47Last Sunday at 7:23 AM

Beth had to be happy she got a few lines now and then, she barely got to speak so she wasn’t ever going to get to sing. R46

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 48Last Sunday at 7:47 AM

She is multi-talented. I'm surprised there was never a Linda Lavin Special aired on CBS in the late 70s.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 49Last Sunday at 7:58 AM

Her husband sure is hot!

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 50Last Sunday at 8:05 AM

The CIA should play her "signing" at ear-splitting levels on a continuous loop to soften up torture suspects for interrogation.

Beth Howland trashed her first husband, just because he refused to have anything to do with her or her child and neglected to pay child support. What a cunt!!!

Mo Rocca has Asperger's.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 58Last Sunday at 10:37 AM

Mo's facial expressions and slack mouth seems to indicate he is less than impressed with Ms. Lavin and any claim she makes to "legend" status.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 59Last Sunday at 10:39 AM

In all seriousness I just can’t imagine her being remembered much beyond her death.

Mo Rocca's sizemeat verificatia, please.

Not that I find him attractive in the least, I'm just wondering how he got a job in broadcasting.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 71Last Sunday at 12:32 PM

I've shared this before but Mo likes men on the more bearish end of the spectrum (or did, about 10 years ago) and I was at a party with a friend who'd briefly dated him.

That topic came up and another guy there said something to the effect of "Man, he's longer and thicker limp than most guys I know are when they're hard!" A few knowing nods were shared.

Polly Holliday was fabulous in that revival of Cat.

The best actor on that stage by miles. Despite a ridiculous costume.

I know we always compare her to Bonnie F but in all fairness Linda has worked consistently on Broadway and TV since Alice. Bonnie, ummm...did a tap dancing video.

Anyone ever watch that short lived show where Patty Heaton played her daughter? I wonder how they got along.

Didn’t watch the interview yet but she looks good for 82 that’s for sure!

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 83Last Sunday at 10:23 PM

Oh gosh, those clips from the interview of her singing in her living room with Billy Stritch were painful. It looked like half the paintings in the room were portraits of her...shocker.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 84Yesterday at 3:47 AM

In 16 years everyone will think she was Andrea Martin’s invented character.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 85Yesterday at 6:18 AM

She's had a better career than Andrea Martin, so that's doubtful.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 86Yesterday at 6:26 AM

Ironic that she compares her "Alice" character to "Norma Rae" since former husband Ron Leibman was in the movie.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 87Yesterday at 6:32 AM

R90, I'm watching your 'Tonight Show' clip you posted of Linda, and at the 25 minute mark, it sounds like Beth Howland doing a Chex commercial. I'm pretty sure it's her voice.

I met her once, briefly. She was nice to me.

Does anybody know Celia Weston? I have a question for her.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 95Yesterday at 5:43 PM

R89 lol Polly, Beth and Vic look indifferent to her winning. Sure this was the height of her cunt ways when she forced Polly off the show.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 96Yesterday at 6:20 PM

How did she "force" Polly off the show? She was given a spinoff. If she was a cunt, it would've been to prevent her from coming back on after "Flo" was cancelled.

The only hit that comes out of a Linda Law...Lavin show is Linda Lavin, and that's ME, baby, remember?'

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 98Yesterday at 6:30 PM

R97 you must be new here. It’s well known that Polly was stealing the spotlight and Linda wanted her off HER show. Polly was offered a chance to return after Diane but she said no. Either the producers and or network made Lavin behave, or Lavin realized they needed Polly to boost the ratings. But there was no way Polly was going to deal with Lavin again.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 99Yesterday at 6:31 PM

Linda made Beth pick up all those straws.

With her teeth.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 100Yesterday at 6:36 PM

Linda should have stopped pressing her lips together so hard causing those deep wrinkles around the corners of her mouth. She would always make that look on Alice when Mel said something stupid or she got upset with Tommy. You can see it right there in the OP photo.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 10110 hours ago

I remember when Linda and Sandy Duncan co-presented on the 1990 Tony Awards.

Sandy had a problem reading the nominees from the teleprompter and forgot to include a nominee, but corrected herself.

Linda began mocking Sandy behind her back, complete with gestures, making Sandy look stupid.

Given that Sandy is blind in one eye, I found Linda's behavior to be quite cunty.

See for yourself at 24:40 . . .

Did anyone like her in Gypsy? I saw her in the show and thought she wasn't half bad and made some interesting choices. Some landed better than others, but it was a fascinating performance.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 10310 hours ago

I saw her in Gypsy. I thought she was okay. Nowhere near the train wreck everyone else makes it out to be. I saw Lansbury as well at the Winter Garden. And that performance was not as great as everyone makes it out to be. People were just happy to see Lansbury on stage in a good musical and that made them overrate her.

by Kiss mah grits, Lavin!reply 1049 hours ago

Saw her too. The fact that she’s playing a monster and is a monster makes it hard to judge the performance, but overall I left feeling underwhelmed and wishing it had been someone else, even a no name understudy, who wouldn’t have pulled focus from the rest of the cast. As I wrote this I remembered there was someone I went to grade school in the cast as well and went to look her up. She died last year of a brain tumor. She was a lovely little girl and had the most amazing flaming red hair.

Whoever would've thought that Celia Weston would have a whole second act as a constantly working character actress? One of the few lucky actresses who actually worked more as she got older.

It was no stretch for Linda to play the whiny Jewish mother in a one season sitcom with an apartment number title.

R106 yeah I think Celia had the best career overall post Alice. She easily could’ve been forgotten as part of the shows worst years. One could argue Lavin and her Tony win, but I think she’s been really hit and miss on Broadway and definitely tv.
