    Yeah I totally agree. I've been really bored lately so I've been reading over all the past interviews that have been posted. Which one/ones are your favorites?

    I'd have to say my own personal favorite was (I can't remember which magazine it was from...maybe vogue) but it's the one were she makes the comment about her grandmother. I really liked that one, it was very revealing of who she is as a person. It broke my heart though to hear what her grandmother said, but really I think it's only made me like Bernadette more.

what did her grandmother say?

Here is the paragraph where it is mentioned. If you search for Vogue on this chat board, you'll find the thread where we originally discussed the article.

Marguerite, who as a child had run numbers for her father, took Peters to auditions and tap lessons, typed her resume on a manual typewriter, and counseled her daughter to change her last name from Lazzara. She also took enormous pride in her accomplishments. (Peters's brother, Joseph, once found their mother watching three television sets, each tuned to a different network, while listening to the radio. "Bernadette is in two commercials and a voice-over," she explained, "and I'm not going to miss them.") As it turns out, she harbored unrealized ambitions of her own. "My mother loved show business," Peters says. "She had wanted to be an actress, but her own mother, who was from the Old Country, wouldn't let her. As far as my grandmother was concerned, I was as close to a whore as you could be without, you know, getting on your back."

"Particular mention must be made of Bernadette Peters, who turns up briefly in a sort of sparkly Glinda the Good costume. She's the reluctant muse sent to help Alice with her writing. The muse is dressed like Oz, sounds like Queens and behaves like a bored student adviser." Alice Film Review, The New York Times, December 25, 1990

"I'm one star away from Dolly Parton ... and Raymond Massey is between us. I hope we don't suffocate him." Bernadette Peters receiving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, April 24, 1987
