Ask the Flying Monkey! Gay Royalty, Plus Will La Streisand be in "Sex and City 2"?

This week! Will La Streisand be in Sex and the City 2? Have any celebrities "inned" themselves? Plus, the truth about the Tiffany/Debbie Gibson feud!

Q: So the trailer for Sex and the City 2 is out, and it reveals what Liza Minnelli had already confirmed: she sings at Anthony and Stanford’s gay wedding. But what about the other part of the rumor, that Barbra Streisand also sings? Is she in the movie or not? – Elliott, Carmel, CA
A: It’s been denied, but truthfully? I'd bet money that she is.
What’s my hunch based on?
First, there were the rumors before filming that the producers were in “secret talks” with her. Then there were the rumors, immediately shot down, that she and Liza Minnelli had actually filmed a scene together. I don’t put much stock in rumors per se, but why would the Minnelli rumors be true and not the Streisand ones? Plus, all this would make sense if they're trying to create a surprise "event."
Then, of course, there’s La Streisand’s well-known penchant for making both a Big Entrance and a Big Splash, not to mention all her talk lately about being tired of working so hard all her life.
Doing in a cameo in this movie would be the best of all possible worlds for her: she'd make a huge splash in a massive hit movie – and all it would take is a couple of days to record the song and film the scene.
I think she'd be insane not to do it. I think the producers would be insane not to want her to.
Finally, there’s the trailer itself. If you look carefully, first, we see a shot of Liza (looking fab, incidentally). Then, in the very next shot, we have a very brief flash of the lower half of another performer.
After all the rumors, if that's not Streisand, they're definitely trying to make us think it is.
