Seeing Double!

Filed under: Oops!

Now, see, if you stopped canceling concerts, maybe you would have the $$$ for a new gown!

Aretha Franklin arrived at a benefit for the Apollo Theater last night looking awfully familiar.

Oh, that's right. She was wearing the same dress she wore two nights previous to the Tony Awards.

We hope she at least had it dry-cleaned between wears! Yuck!

She got a new wig though! Improvement!

Glee To Perform At The Tonys!

Filed under: AwardzGreen DayGlee

We kind of figured, but it is still exciting to hear none-the-less.

This year' Tony awards is all about the star power! Along with planning a HUGE performance by Green Day to celebrate their Broadway show, American Idiot, the producers of the Tonys have just announced that Glee stars and Broadway vets, Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison, are also slated to perform.

No word what the duo will sing or if they will perform together, but if we might offer a suggestion, we'd have Miz Michele belt out some Barbara!

We know she has the pipes and to hear that girl sing Don't Rain On My Parade live is a like having a religious experience.

Matt can stand behind her and twirl his hair!

DO IT!

Sickly Catherine Zeta-Jones!

Horrible timing!

Catherine Zeta-Jones has fallen ill with a terrible virus and there doesn't seem to be any signs of her getting better soon! The actress has already missed five performances of her Broadway show, A Little Night Music, and if she can't kick this thing, there might be no hope that she will make it to the Tony's!

Or that she will win one!

For the next two weeks, Tony voters are said to be visiting each of the shows to start deliberating on who should win. The viral infection is specifically affecting CZJ's ability to talk and sing and so, she has missed most of the performances slated with Tony voters.

Sources say that she is "deeply frustrated" with the situation and that her husband, Michael Douglas, has to constantly put his foot down and keep her home, instead of going to the theater.

Aw! That's got to be rough all around!

We really hope you feel better soon, bb! We think that Tony could be yours, if you had the strength to fight for it!

That's Not How It Works, Trump!

Filed under: Broadway BabiesDonald TrumpSad Sad

We're not a doctor, but even we know that your theory is unlikely!

Donald Trump, M.D. is running with all the publicity he is getting because of Bret Michaels' unfortunate condition. In his most recent interview, The Donald gave his insightful opinion as to what he thought brought on Bret's hemorrhage:

“He did the Tony Awards [last year] where he got whacked; he got hit really, really hard. That was a year ago so that sounds like a long time. But with brains… Something like that could cause it, but no one really knows what caused it."

Um, if you recall Donald, Bret's nose got the most of the beating on that fateful night when a set piece came down on the Tony stage and whacked him in the face. Sure, he took a spill and hit his head on the way down, but like you said, it was a year ago. Should we all be fearful that the next time we take a tumble, a year later we'll be in the hospital?

Don't think so!

Conan Says "No" To Tonys

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesAwardzConan O'Brien

conanwenn2581726.jpg

Conan O'Brien said "pass" to the opportunity to host this year's Tony Awards in June. We assume that the decision is based off his blood-pact with NBC that he has yet to be released from, but none of the reps from CBS or NBC will confirm that.

Maybe he is just enjoying his funemployment!

We think Hugh Jackman could be free!!! ASK!!!
