Sandra Bernhard says Mariah Carey is “completely over the top”

HollywoodNews.com: The hilarious Sandra Bernhard is currently starring in her one-woman show I Love Being Me, Don’t You? at downtown LA’s REDCAT. The nine-show gig will end on Aug. 21.

She talked to Frontiers IN LA about the show, her upcoming appearance on Roseanne Barr’s reality show, her desire to return to television and a lot more including her thoughts on Mariah Carey!

Here are some excerpts:

Q. You’re considered by many to be a comedy icon, and you’re most definitely a gay icon, but I’m curious, who are some people that you personally look up to, for whatever reason?
A. When I was growing up, there was Carol Channing, Carol Burnett, Mary Tyler Moore, Jonathan Winters, Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett. As I got a little older and started getting into music, there was Joni Mitchell, The Stones, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross—all the great Motown sound and R&B and rock ‘n roll. And then later, Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin were big influences on me, right around when I was first starting my performing at about 18 or 19 years old. Then there are always new people coming along, like Amy Poehler, Lisa Lampanelli. I like people in all these different directions that I think are really fun and talented.

    Ms Bernard needs to shut her mouth and shouldn’t be put in the catagory of Carole Bernett and Lucille Ball. Mariah is over the top on the red carpet most celebs are but when you meett her at a CD signing or concert she’s the total opposite of that I should know I met her backstage after her charm Bracelet concert in Boston 8 years ago and she was as sweet as sugar

    @Courtney, Sandra actually says kind-enough things about Mariah; that she might be bad-mouthing is just cheap tricks of “journalism.” To get hits/readers.
