I was so happy to see that Barbra has issues a new truth alert regarding this very old, very irritating quote. I have felt for decades that it was ludicrous, and have become annoyed every time it has reared its ugly head over the years. It is amazing how these things persist. It is my fervent hope that one day Barbra will write a comprehensive autobiography which takes apart some of the countless inaccuracies and misquotes attributed to her during her long career. The awful thing is that so many people will believe ANYTHING just because it appears in print. As a librarian, working every day with hundreds of readers, it shocks me how people read something, and never question the validity or the facts of anything! Bravo, Barbra!
As Barbra has said, " The truth is so delicious!" She has been misquoted and misinterpreted from the start of her career. We fans who have stuck with her know the difference-between truth and blatant lies.
