Barry Humphries on ABC Radio!

You little darlings!

The bonza buzz about Barry's book continues, Possums!

Following the launch of "Handling Edna" earlier this month, Barry has been a busy man promoting the book down under. As part of the promotional tour, he was recently a guest on several ABC radio programmes, and we thought you might enjoy hearing the interviews!

There were many revealing moments, including the news that Dame Edna had a dalliance or two with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Leonard Cohen some years ago. Goodness me! That's quite a departure from the life of a Moonee Ponds housewife! And yet, she's truly a woman of remarkable talents and charisma, so surely nobody can be surprised that some of the world's most famous men have found her wisteria locks alluring. (She still declares joyously that she is a woman who continues to have her drives and her juices flowing...)

There's also thrilling news in the ABC Sydney interview that Jennifer Aniston is likely to play Edna in a new film about her remarkable life! Isn't that gorgeous?!

Dame Edna and Craig

You little darlings!

Following the news last week of a new Dame Edna book, you're practically quivering with excitement, aren't you?

While you're waiting for the release of the book outside of Oz, you're going to need another dose of the Dame this week to help you cope!

Keeping to the theme, we thought you might enjoy this clip of Dame Edna reading from Craig Ferguson's autobiography. You may recall that Edna helped Craig earlier this year by appearing on his little show, just as she's helped Parky, Paul O'Grady, Jay Leno, and so many others in the past. There's no denying, she thinks only of others!

Hatchette's official description of this fabulous new title reads:

In this unauthorised biography, acquired for an unprecedented advance and in spectacular secrecy, long-time manager and the man who was there from the very beginning, Barry Humphries takes a behind-the-scenes, no-holds-barred look at an icon of our times - Dame Edna Everage."
