When I was a little girl, I was convinced I had a wealth of talent—singing, dancing, acting; you name it, I could do it. I used to pretend I was Olga Korbut, swinging with ease on the uneven bars. I was Cher, singing with Sonny. I was Laurie Partridge (without braces); I was Dinah Shore with red hair. Sometimes I was even a singer on my grandparent’s favorite, The Lawrence Welk Show. When I was in my bedroom, with my hairbrush as a microphone, there was nothing I couldn’t do.
The legendary, brilliant Gilda Radner apparently felt the same. The first time I saw her Judy Miller skit on SNL I thought we must have been soul mates. Here she is…enjoy, and remember when it felt like you were a shining star with millions of adoring fans.
