The Best Comebacks In Showbiz History
They were washed up, kaput, as ovah as the macarena!
And then they rose up from the ashes of disdain and said, "Ha!'
And we applauded like madmen.
The best comebacks ever are:
In 2004, Teri Hatcher moved into Shady Pines, I mean Wisteria Lane, and everything bloomed again. After all, Lois & Clark had stopped flying a whole seven years earlier.
Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia, 1956. Hollywood not only forgave her for being a tramp and a hussy, they gave her an Oscar!
In 1984, Tina Turner truly came into her own with her Private Dancer album, the work of a sizzling survivor. Her growl, her strut, and the dead Pomeranian on her head were all all magical.
Joan Collins was a faded B-movie siren who suddenly became a superstar in 1981 on Dynasty. Bitchy hauteur was rarely so glamly gorgeous. As she swiveled her pads, it seemed as if Joan had been with us forever.
Nobody nailed the art of the comeback like this guy. Hallelujah.
