BREAKING (AP): Barbra Streisand is undergoing a million-dollar makeover to make sure her first Academy Awards performance since 1977 is one that nobody will ever forget.
The 70-year-old superstar has hired personal trainers and a nutritionist, and flown in “facial specialists” from Europe.
Barbra has also installed a state-of-the-art gym, a performance studio and a meditation room in her Malibu mansion and ordered several custom designer gowns so she has options for the big night.
“All told, Barbra will have spent almost $1 million,” a source said, adding that Streisand wants to drop at least 20 pounds from her 5-foot-5 frame.
“She also brings in facial experts from Europe regularly and will have them on-call throughout Oscar week.”
Bab’s asked her close friend, designer Donna Karan to create “at least five one-of-a-kind couture gowns,” which will cost at least $100,000.

Happy Birthday JOHN TRAVOLTA, 59 today (18 February 2013).
Where’s the team @luriddigs when you need them?
And that was his real name too. Born in New York on this day (15 February) in 1907, Romero claimed he laughed for the rest of his first meeting with Hollywood studio scouts, who said that it was a good thing he had such a masculine name, as it would detract from the “femininity” in the fact that he was a skilled and enthusiastic Latin dancer.
A classic quote:
Well, you know what they say in Hollywood - the most important thing is being sincere, even if you have to fake it.
Not only did he gift us with great lines as those, he also demonstrated the correct way to speak on the telephone:
Look at how Joan Collins takes a bath!
BREAKING: O.J. SIMPSON TURNS GAY IN PRISON; PROUD TO BE A HOMOSEXUAL
As you may know, many believe O.J. Simpson could be the real father of Khloe Kardashian, the product of Kris Jenner’s affair with an unknown man, but you should certainly know that O.J. is also currently serving time for armed robbery, and won’t be up for parole until 2017.
A friend of Simpson’s, gossipping under promise of complete anonymity (our kind of friend) confirmed that O.J.’s decided to live the rest of his sentence openly as a gay man!
Bored in prison, O.J. “likes to show off his body to the hardened felons when they exercise in the prison yard. He doesn’t even talk about women, just guys,” the source told National Enquirer, print edition February 18, 2013. “He’s like a God to the other inmates. He prances around flexing his muscles, wearing only a pair of gym shorts. He spends hours in the gym trying to look good.”
The fab friend continues: “He used to be Mr. Macho—a diehard ladies’ man. He preferred the really fine sexy blondes, but being around only men has changed him.” A second friend defended O.J., noting that he’s “doing the best he can living in the prison world surrounded by men.”
While the friend admits he doesn’t know if he’s officially out, he notes that “he has to be the center of attention wherever he is, and in prison he still plays that game.”
Yet another insider said that it isn’t just the attention he’s after—Simpson has lost all attraction for women, and now fantasizes about men. After the Super Bowl, he gushed to a friend, “Anquan [Boldin] is my man! What a great looking guy!” The friend is positive that “he wasn’t admiring Boldin just for his football skills.”
So, there’s your gossip for today.
