Barbra Streisand does & did.



In an interview with Variety magazine for this month's cover, legendary singer/actor/filmmaker Barbra Streisand opines on topics ranging from the 2016 election (she says the voting machines were rigged against Hillary Clinton) to the#metoo movement (says Harvey Weinstein once threatened her), but one bombshell has nothing to do with politics or Hollywood.
During the photo shoot, Streisand joked that a portrait with her three coton de tuleardogs should be captioned "Send in the Clones."


She explained that two of her three canine companions, Miss Violet and Miss Scarlet, are clones of her beloved Samantha, who died last year. To get the genetic material needed to perform the procedure, Streisand had cells taken from Samantha's mouth and stomach.
Her duplicated dogs "have different personalities," she tells Variety. "I'm waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have [Samantha's] brown eyes and seriousness."
The star says she got the names for the clones because she tied violet and scarlet colored sashes on them in an effort to tell them apart.
NPR's Rob Stein reported three years ago, Sooam Biotech Research Foundation in Seoul, South Korea, founded by Hwang Woo Suk — "who became a scientific pariah in 2006, when his claim that he had created the first cloned human embryos in 2004 to produce human embryonic stem cells was discovered to be fraudulent" — was offering to clone a pet for $100,000.
At the time of Rob's report, Hwang had cloned at least 600 dogs.
Three years later, however, with competition, the price has dropped. ViaGen, which bills itself as "America's Most Trusted Animal Cloning Company," now charges $50,000 to clone a dog and $25,000 for a cat, according to Time's Money magazine.
According to the pitch on ViaGen's website, "a truly special pet provides us a unique sense of comfort and life-enriching fulfillment which is nearly impossible to extend beyond your pet's natural lifespan. ntil now."
Morning Edition notes that not everyone is applauding Streisand's choice. The animal rights group PETA, for example, has come out strongly against the practice of pet cloning.
"We all want our beloved dogs to live forever," the animal rights group's president, Ingrid Newkirk, said in a statement to Page Six on Tuesday. "[W]hen you consider that millions of wonderful adoptable dogs are languishing in animal shelters every year or dying in terrifying ways when abandoned, you realize that cloning adds to the homeless-animal population crisis."
Rob wrote in 2015 that Sooam Biotech's cloning process "works only about a third of the time. So, getting a cloned puppy entails a lot of attempts and a lot of miscarriages. And the process requires many dogs — some to provide the eggs, and others to serve as surrogates."
He adds, "even when the process works perfectly, the cloned animals aren't exact replicas of the originals. Environmental influences, including some that help determine when particular genes are turned on and off during development, play a role in how closely the resulting clone mimics the original dog."

She's a fucking moron. There are millions of dogs out there that need to be adopted and she creates a new one, who just because it has the same genetic material doesn't mean it's the same dog. What a cunt.

Listen Babs, put a Sarah MacLachlan song in the 8 track deck of your Ford Pinto, drive down to the local shelter, and rescue a fucking dog or two. Then give them a little donation so maybe some of these poor creatures can buy a little time. If not, I hope you get splattered with hobo ejaculate at your next "homecoming" concert at Barclays.

Babs could've voluntarily given that money to the IRS to pay more taxes. They wouldn't have turned her down. But nope, she likes to spout off about shit she doesn't understand but when push comes to shove, she throws her money down the toilet.

She's rich and famous. What make's you think that she has any common sense. This is the stupidity these celebrities do with their fortune. Some of these fucktards actually get a physiatrist for their fucking pets. Paris Hilton's dogs wear more expensive clothing that we could ever afford.
