Can you guess which is Dr. Christiane Northrup—Oprah regular and author of The Wisdom of Menopause—and which is actress Ellen Barkin?
Hint: one of them said, “You’re in labor with yourself,” and the other said, “My husband thinks he’s compromising if we have one cook instead of three.”
blackbird saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:02 am
It hardly matters.
I wouldn’t take advice from either of them.
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:11 am
Oh wait! I thought one of them was Jenny Mc Carthy (in twenty years when her face goes south with the boob job and all the plastic melts).
Dr. Monkey saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:14 am
Both frigehten me now.
OMSH saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:29 am
That truly is uncanny. And wow, what a sacrifice – one chef instead of three. And here I was guilty I paid someone to come and clean the top layer of dust on my house.
Momo Fali saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:29 am
Have you seen Madonna with this haircut? She looks like a drag-queen. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…
All Adither saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:45 am
My husband thinks we’re compromising if we have one dinner instead of three.
Paula saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:57 am
Damn if celebrities don’t start melding into one another. Just this morning I was at menwholooklikeoldlesbians.blogspot.com, and I swore Wes Anderson could double as Kenneth the Page from 30 Rock. And if you stuck a wig on Michael Moore, he just might pass as Betty Friedan.
You can call me, 'Sir' saysOctober 19, 2007 at 10:18 am
Ellen Barkin was totally hot in ‘The Big Easy’.
Moi saysOctober 19, 2007 at 10:46 am
Ellen Barkin is #2!
And someone should stage an intervention with her about those lips. Did they get there 10 minutes before she did?
Some plastic surgery = fine
The point where you look like your wax model at Madame Tussaud’s = bad
chocolatechic saysOctober 19, 2007 at 10:54 am
I cheated. I google searched.
1 cook instead of 3, huh????
One should be so lucky!
Howard saysOctober 19, 2007 at 11:24 am
The one that life has made bitter is Ellen Barkin.
Manic Mommy saysOctober 19, 2007 at 11:40 am
Ellen should inject some of that extra collagen in her lips into her neck.
Have they perfected the neck lift yet? If so, I’d like to get on the waiting list for about 8 years from now – maybe sooner.
Neil saysOctober 19, 2007 at 11:43 am
How much wisdom can menopause have?
beverly saysOctober 19, 2007 at 12:10 pm
Ellen Barkin is #2.
Honor saysOctober 19, 2007 at 12:22 pm
Yikes, Ellen looks more than a bit like Alan Rickman. Imagine her with a black, greasy bob…
Laurie Foolery saysOctober 19, 2007 at 12:59 pm
Do Hollywood types NEED cooks? That would imply that they actually EAT.
Karen saysOctober 19, 2007 at 1:06 pm
Dr.Northrup is the happy one!
Laura saysOctober 19, 2007 at 2:09 pm
Did anyone hear about what David Letterman said recently about Ellen Barkin?? LOL! When Leona Helmsley died she left everything to her beloved pooch Trouble. Well, Letterman said now “Trouble’s engaged to be married to Ellen Barkin!” I was dying, heaped over from LOL so much!
kerrianne saysOctober 19, 2007 at 2:20 pm
My husband is lucky if I cook anything beyond macaroni and cheese. I’m the best trophy wife ever.
PunditMom saysOctober 19, 2007 at 2:55 pm
Oh, that was too easy, Bossy. But their uber-blondeness scares me.
Biddy saysOctober 19, 2007 at 2:57 pm
3 cooks?! really?! sheesh!
oh, and biddysworld is allll about the boss lady today!
Mom101 saysOctober 19, 2007 at 3:43 pm
And which one has carpeting to match the drapes?
Desiree saysOctober 19, 2007 at 4:01 pm
in my opinion-both are worthless.
i’m sitting here, eating CHEERIOS for breakfast, lunch AND dinner and that biotch has to ‘sacrifice’ two cooks? Puhlease.
Deb saysOctober 19, 2007 at 5:38 pm
If I’m in labor with myself, Dr. Crissy Barkin’s going to get her ass sued for not giving me my epidural in time.
Cece saysOctober 19, 2007 at 5:55 pm
Wow. Ellen needs to start wearing turtle necks.
slouching mom saysOctober 19, 2007 at 6:09 pm
Ellen had best lighten up on the eye makeup, because she’s in danger of morphing into Tammy Faye.
soNOTcool saysOctober 19, 2007 at 6:10 pm
Ha. I know the answer to this one because I planted my ass on the sofa (Tuesday?) and watched Oprah.
flutter saysOctober 19, 2007 at 6:41 pm
I can tell you which one needs to lay off the tanning booth….
Gloria saysOctober 19, 2007 at 8:43 pm
Just one cook? Oh my, what a tragedy! Cos we normal people have like, dozens of them at the very least? I pity rich stars, really!
Alli ~Mrs. Fussypants saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:32 pm
I watched Oprah yesterday. She kinda scared me.
mary saysOctober 19, 2007 at 9:35 pm
My goodness me! Just one cook?
I think Ah’m gettin’ the vapors….
Geez louise, what do you do with 3 cooks? One for breakfast, one for lunch, one for dinner? Wouldn’t you need a snack one, too????
Ms. Karen saysOctober 20, 2007 at 12:37 am
Wow, and they say Hollywood is out of touch with reality. Can you believe that? Ooh, wait until the staff gets a load of this! Barbie! Ken! Dora! We may have to let two of you go…
Melissa in NZ saysOctober 20, 2007 at 4:42 am
The thought of being in labour with myself is t.e.r.r.i.f.y.i.n.g.
Also, how does one come out of oneself?
It’s all nonsense, I tell you!
Get-Off saysOctober 20, 2007 at 9:15 am
Clutch Cargo called, he’d like his lips back.
Amanda saysOctober 20, 2007 at 5:30 pm
Oh Ellen, so much like a handbag. Shades of Ivana, too.
Briget saysOctober 20, 2007 at 6:31 pm
I know, I know!!
But only because menopause had me so freaked that I bought The Book – “Menopause – Trip or Journey?” (or something like that). And there was a picture on the back.
So I know. But I’m not telling. Because I can’t find my battery-operated tiny fan and everyone Has To Pay.
kim saysOctober 20, 2007 at 11:02 pm
1 is that crazy doctor…Oprah needs better judgment sometimes!
mothergoosemouse saysOctober 20, 2007 at 11:37 pm
Blond #1 scares me slightly less than Blond #2, but I bet Richard Fish would dig Blond #2’s wattle.
surcie saysOctober 20, 2007 at 11:58 pm
The doctor has had quite a makeover! I must say, I kinda like her. But did you get a load of O’s set that day? Creamy, flowy, beigey, and pillowy. I got hot flashes just looking at it.
surcie saysOctober 20, 2007 at 11:59 pm
PS: I had an a-ha moment after I posted. Did you watch when the set matched Jessica Seinfeld’s pink plaid cookbook? Well, for the doctor, the set was blonde to match the hair!
Mrs. Chicken saysOctober 21, 2007 at 9:21 am
We can do her one better – we have a cook, maid and sex slave wrapped into one. Her name is “mommy.”
jen saysOctober 21, 2007 at 11:52 am
i prefer four cooks, myself. and a surrogate.
Leaf, probably... saysOctober 21, 2007 at 7:19 pm
‘Parlor’ games are my favorite type of game after ‘drinking’ and ‘boudoir’ games.
David saysOctober 21, 2007 at 11:17 pm
Doesn’t “actress” imply she’s still performing in something? That is being watched by anyone?
FENICLE saysOctober 21, 2007 at 11:53 pm
How eerie that they look so alike!!!
I always thought you have a twin somewhere in the world.
Jen M saysOctober 22, 2007 at 1:57 am
I saw the Oprah last week with the good doctor. So she’s had some work done – I thought some of what she said was really interesting. AND I recently read that Ellen denies having had any plastic surgery. Snort!
Phoenix saysOctober 23, 2007 at 12:01 am
SOme times I wonder what makes these woman want to look like plastic pod people?
I’ve met Dr. Northrup. She’s an ass. A plastic ass, but an ass.
kristina saysOctober 23, 2007 at 6:48 pm
I, too, have made the acquaintance of the good doctor. In fact, she was the first person to cradle my spongy little head.
My mother says she was the very best OBGYN anyone could ask for, and she wished with all her heart for Dr. Northrup during her second labor.
Unemployed Susan saysFebruary 5, 2009 at 8:34 pm
Oh my, what a lot of snarky comments!
