Separated at birth?

Joy Behar, American comedian, writer, actress, and former co-host with Barbara Walters on the ABC talk show The View.

Bette Midler, American singer-songwriter, actress, comedian, film producer, and entrepreneur.

One says she was born in Honolulu. One says she was born in Brooklyn.

One sings better than the other.

Other than those two teensy-weensy differences, they are practically identical.

For your information, this is my sixth foray into “Separated at birth?” territory, the others having been:

1. Barney Franks and Buddy Hackett (March 21, 2009)
2. Tanya Tucker and Paula White (July 15, 2009)
3. Larry “Bud” Melman and Truman Capote (May 21, 2010)
4. George Stephanopolous and Pat Monahan (June 9, 2010)
5. Woody Harrelson and Casey Cagle (November 10, 2010)

This could get to be habit-forming.

But can I help it if everyone seems to have a twin?

Sometimes it’s downright scary.


  1. I hope you won't think me rude but I think there is a striking resemblance between your good self and a resident of Springfield known as Mr Homer Simpson. Spookily, the similarity is more than just in outward appearance. But Mrs Brague looks nothing like Marge!

  2. If you and I had been separated at birth, it would have been one slow birth.
