Sandra Bernhard - Is She For Real?
Is she for real? In answer to that
question...I have to say a definite
YES! In my exclusive interview with this young star I found her to be very down to earth and real. In the question and answer session she seemed to be very internal. When I say that, I mean very much into reality of life and learning about life. She is a soul searcher and doesn't take kindly to plastic people.
Before the interview I put together quite a few questions and even sought questions from the outside.

That was the end of the direct question and answer session. In casual talk I told her that many wanted to know why she and Madonna broke up. To my surprise, she informed me that the whole Sandra and Madonna thing was a media trash session. She even said that they hadn't made out before.! As a result, it seriously screwed up their friendship. Just in the last couple of weeks have they attempted to patch things up!
So there is some real scoop for you.
