No Birthday Celebration For Dame Julie Andrews

Oh bollocks!

A tribute to Dame Julie Andrews' 75th birthday that was scheduled to air on BBC television has been scrapped after producers claim that Andrews demanded money for her appearance.

According to sources, producers were "shocked" and "assumed, perhaps naively, that she would be honored to take part for free."

Andrew's agent and manager Steve Sauer deny the reports that she asked to get paid, saying:

"We have heard rumblings of the desire to do a tribute. There have been no direct conversations about it. As such, no fee was ever requested. Whoever 'told' you that a big fee was demanded is being untruthful."

In the meantime, BBC has decided to cancel the birthday tribute all together, which will surely make many Julie Andrews fans very sad.

We say, pay her whatever she want$!! The woman is a legend!

    Good on the BBC, stars shouldn't hold broadcasters to ransom, especially when it's with taxpayer money.

    Using Dame Julie Andrew's legend and good name to draw millions of boomer viewers to watch their special (for which they would garner big advertising dollars), should not have an expectation that the honored Ms. Andrews should somehow do it for free. If it were for charity, she likely would, but the BBC is no charity. She's spent 60+ years building up her good name. I doubt she'd ask a huge fee for their 'honor' show, but it's the principle of the thing and an absolute insult that a stipend might not have been offered. In my opinion it has the appearance of using her; this is not her friends and family we're talking about here. Some random group want her to show up for them. What, she's such an honored legend that you expect not to pay her to mount your big special, because it's her birthday?!? Anyway, there's nothing to say that her camp requested payment above. It could be a tempest in a teapot, and about something else entirely, to be fair to the BBC.

    I think it's tacky if she did ask for money for the appearance.

    Is there anything Hollywood doesn't want to be paid for? Sheesh.

    I shelled out £75 a ticket for her London show, and tragically she has lost her singing voice completely. It was actually painful to watch, and although her speaking voice is still diction perfect she can only sing (by her own admission) 3 notes.
    At one stage she looked like she was crying. Me too.

    Legend or not the BBC are paying tribute to her on her birthday. If someone arranged a birthday party for you, you wouldn't demand a wage for attending. However, we don't know if this story is actually true and i hope it is not.

    We don't know who is telling the truth, but it's well known that she thinks of herself as a DIVA.

    I think this is bullshit. Julie would never demand money. Way to wreak her very special 75th birthday BBC!
