Kristin Chenoweth Is Paging The Olsen Twins

"I'd love to direct one of the Olsen twins in the story of my life!" cracked the Tony- and Emmy-winning star at the Drama League tribute in her honor at the Pierre last night.

Chenoweth has so many sides to her talent she'd probably need the entire Osmond family.

The event was filled with short jokes, great clips, and lots of admiration for the woman who sings Broadway, gospel, country, and coloratura with equal chutzpah.

Among the highlights was a segment in which various Broadway males, claiming that Kristin has stolen all the good material for herself, seized back her songs.

Nick Jonas did a really sweet and swoon-worthy "A House Is Not a Home."

Brent Barrett belted a strong, wailing "What Did I Have That I Don't Have?"

And Cheyenne Jackson did his version of "Gorgeous," which didn't have much irony (he is gorgeous), but was hilarious nonetheless.

And out of nowhere came Elaine Paige, who admitted to the honoree, "I keep wanting to call you Kirsten."

Oh, no! Her familiar word flubbing again?

Nope. Paige wound up getting the name right.

And then she launched into her version of "I'm Still Here" from Follies and, having dropped the screaming she did when the song crescendoed on Broadway, she really nailed it big time.

At the end of the evening, Kristin swept to the stage, truly touched, and admitted, "My favorite thing in the world is to be onstage. I'm in therapy about it."

Hopefully they won't work out a cure.

It seems as though there are already residents on Moonbase Gingrich auditing our media.

Whether it's a compliment that they read Musto only he can say.

i'd like to see the olsen twins have sex with one another, with or without them wearing a strap on.

The so-called Kristin Chenoweth and Cheyenne Jackson are two eurasian purebred pretenders with fraudulent biographies. Yet more in the so-named "entertainment" industry. The Americans are observing and sweeping for these frauds in the nooks and crannies of their open-system environment. That means the aptly misnamed Cheyanne and Kristin are the byproducts of overseas government and are getting early visits from Americas Go-Go hit force. But, hey... THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT!! RIGHT, AMERICA??!! RIGHT!!

She's a wonderful, talented person with a great voice. Among other wonderful performances I saw her in an Encores production a few years back and her beautiful singing took the whole show to a higher level.

Love her - her Sally Brown was five minutes of pure transcendent Broadway in the otherwise utterly forgettable You're a Good Man... - but living overseas I've missed the last ten years or so of her, and seeing her recently on TV, found the face, well, off-putting - too much work, or too much something.  The portrait above is flattering, I'll give it that...

Exactly. US citizenry was always nothing more than labour and a study specimen for American Intelligence forces. Tools meant to breed other tools for as long as needed. USA isn't even a democracy. It is a republic under American ownership, pure and simple. The president is an ineffectual political facade for the citizen populace, not for the Americans themselves. They make no effectual decisions. They are alternated in office like social breathing, the pendulum of progress. Any group or organ from across the ocean is immediately intercepted, integrated and absorbed. Look at the English language after their revolution. The citizens watch free television on welfare since welfare was introduced, otherwise they become tools for life. 150 years of legalized immigration doesn't change a thing. Only the Americans can metamorphose anything in America, including purely intentionally hypothetical walls they never intend to build. The USA is a cagematch laboratory for America defeating the alien from across the ocean. Nothing has changed.

The Memo writes perfectly correctly. I can only take it "Karen Parsons" is another USA "citizen". It's no wonder they're kept in their stupid zoo state. Either that, or it's an online cheerleader troll. "Karen Parsons" loses on both counts.

BetteD nailed it. Get off the coffee, Karen Parson. You'll learn to like yourself that way.
