Seeing as nobody other than Chel is returning my phone calls, I'm beginning to think that perhaps my political image could use a bit of sprucing up. After the you-know-what, I've left a lot of voicemail for a lot of
I want to make a biopic movie. I was previously thinking about a Broadway show, but this would be way bigger. It would be my life story and explain to people why I

I have a lot of industry people in Hollywood that could probably make this work. Clooney and Streisand always told me I had star quality. At one fundraiser, they prodded me on to the stage where I sang, "I Enjoy Being A Girl," and then apologized later for someone having turned off my microphone halfway through the song. The bandleader was a homo who was pretty mean about it, too. I could have sworn I heard him mutter something about an "old whore with a tin ear," but George says I was imagining things. Probably a Sanders voter. Who cares? I don't see this as a musical.
I'm playing around with working titles, too. So far, I like "She Could Have Been Queen," which has an Anne Hathaway feel to it and "American Train Wreck," which is more Christian Bale. I have more, but those are my favorites.
The big question is who would play me in the movie. I know Meryl Streep would leap at the chance, but I'm holding out for someone a bit more real and true to life. I'm thinking John Lithgow. He's taller than me, but we could shoot around that. After all, Alan Ladd was only five foot two.
