We're not sure how either of them are able to squeeze so many calls in with their packed schedules.
Fortunately, King gladly steps in to comfort her friend. I would not call myself a friendly person. This just happened last week, and her son's 19. Number two … why would you want to hide it?

There's nothing wrong with having an opinion, but isn't she crossing the fine line from constructive criticism to Shady McGrady? In what could be seen as retaliation on Barbara's behalf, she opened up to the for an exclusive, no-holds-barred interview to spill the tea. And I'd gotten to Chicago on a Super Saver ticket; you know, back when you had to buy 30 days in advance for a decent price. Lisa: Neil Diamond and Barry Manilow?
