Back in the day, Sandra Bernhard and Madonna were BFFs.
Twenty years later, their friendship has dissolved.
Bernhard went on The Wendy Williams Show and talked about the fall-out. We feel she kinda misses that AbFab friendship even though she uses cynism to cover it up.
Wendy Williams: Let’s talk about your old friendship with Madonna. Is that still an active friendship?
Sandra Bernhard: (singing) “Old Madonna had a farm, E-I-E-I-O…” No.
Wendy Williams: Are you still cool with that now?
Sandra Bernhard: I’m cool with her, but we’re not friends anymore. It’s a bummer… In the day we were like super super super…
Wendy Williams: You were Patsy and Edina.
Sandra Bernhard: Yeah, we really were. She came to my show in 1988, came backstage and then we started hanging out. I guess to a certain degree anytime two performers connect, there’s a little bit of publicity. That’s legitimate. In those days, before the internet, before TMZ.
Wendy Williams: Before The Kids. So you were able to be wild and crazy.
Sandra Bernhard: We would go out, have a genuinely great time and I think we were a really good example of two women being friends.To me that was the saddest part of our friendship dissolving. I would have liked that to have gone on for a while. Certain people can’t handle those kind of friendships. That’s not my style. I like to maintain my friendships throughout my life.
Wendy Williams: Am I the only one who smells something bitter going on that I’m not going to ask any more about?
Sandra Bernhard: No no, it’s not bitter.
Wendy Williams: Did she mess it up for you guys?
Sandra Bernhard: It’s ok, you know. All is forgiven. You know, once you gone to kabbalah…
