The other night I caught Sandra Bernhard’s HBO special. Seven months pregnant, at the time of the taping, Bernhard wears a tight transparent dress. She’s ‘out there’ in every way!

This is one major talent. She can act, perform outrageously funny stand up, and sing. And I mean she can really sing. She reminds me of another dazzling triple threat gal, the early Bette Midler, before the Divine One calmed down.

But I sense that Sandra is going to be taking her career a lot more seriously now and doing some calming down herself a bit. Raising another human being is no joke. Her old friend, Madonna, could have told her that. But they’re still kind of on the outs.

Oh, get over it girls, life is short.
