Diva BARBRA STREISAND refused to perform at a benefit for
Presidential hopeful AL GORE unless her tablecloth demands were met.
Appearing with a band and a 100 voice choir, the 58-year-old
EVERGREEN star insisted a pot of hot tea and a cup must be on the stage at all times.
She also decreed that the tablecloth was the wrong colour -
beige. She also declined the offers of a dozen replacements
including green, red and white checks, blue, white and yellow
before finally settling on cranberry. (PDD/WNTEX/MCM)
