Number 3: Absolutely true. She technically has both x and y chromosomes, although her his-bits were removed shortly after birth. This is actually not that uncommon; about as common as red hair or left-handedness.

Mama Cass of The Mamas and The Papas choked to death on a ham sandwich.

what about maynard from tool removing one of his ribs so he can suck his own dick? Jon, My wife is a red headed lefty.... shit.

Jon: It is not "absolutely true" http://www.snopes.com/movies/actors/jamie.asp Louie B: That is false http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/mamacass.asp

Ian: the same rumor was circulated about Marilyn Manson about 10 years ago.
kkaa - 2008-01-08 17:33:08
...and 20 years ago about Prince I remember...
Mullethead - 2008-04-16 06:07:39
I've seen the Streisand porno, it's got to be her! You can't mistake the eyes! Old, grainy B/W. If it aint her, it's a hell of a twin, so I could see where the rumor would start. But, I swear to God it was her...
Rupert - 2008-08-29 20:55:46

I think number 3 despite Snopes claiming that it hasn't been verified or unverified is likely true. What do I base the claim on? She is barren (that she admitted in an interview) and thus had to adopt. She refuses to discuss the rumor, which is like saying "yes." If she had said no and she wouldn't discuss it further I might believe her. Her not willing to discuss the issue leads me to believe it's true. 1% to 2% of all children born are intersexual. I really don't see it as that big of a deal. So what if she was? She is still a she.

On Jamie Lee Curtis, hermaphrodite technically means you produce both ova and sperm, so that's out. She may, however, be some variety of intersex. For example, she might have complete androgen insensitivity syndrome (CAIS), in which a baby is born with XY chromosomes, but looks completely female. Because of the body's insensitivity to androgen, a masculinizing hormone, the testes kind of hang out in the body about where the ovaries would normally be, and otherwise the woman is in every sense female (excluding her obvious inability to menstruate or concieve.) In fact, these women are hyperfemale, as typical women produce some androgen. They even tend to look the part, with little to no body hair, a slim, long-legged, moderately busted frame. If you placed a CAIS woman next to a normal woman in a lineup and asked an average guy which was more "feminine," I'd put good money on the woman with CAIS. They get really screwed by laws preventing gay marriage though, because their sex isn't easily identified.

Joe - 2008-12-21 06:33:24

Well said. Yeah, Jaime Lee Curtis is an XY female.

Rusty Rooster - 2009-02-14 19:33:11

And don't forget the classic one - that Stan Laurel is really Clint Eastwood's father! That was widely reported as fact in the early 80s.

Informed 1 - 2009-03-19 13:51:00

For the stupid ignorant dumbfounded dipshit that said it was rumored the Maynard of TOOL had his rib removed. YOU ARE RETARDED! It was rumored that Marilyn Mansion had the rib removed to suck his own dick. Your end is near!

NoraD - 2009-04-12 01:57:43

The Richard Gere gerbil story is totally true. Here's proof: http://skanlyn.xanga.com/698639383/fact-or-faux/

Doc - 2009-06-07 20:04:18

Jamie Lee's condition is known as CAIS (chronic androgen insensitivity syndrome). She never had male parts because her androgen (testosterone and DHT) receptors did not work in development. She is XY and lacks a uterus, fallopian tubes, cervix, and upper 1/3 vagina. The lower 2/3 vagina developed fine as did the rest of the "default" female sex characteristics. She probably has/had testicular gonadal remnants in her labial pouches or somewhere within her abdominal cavity (streak gonads). I would imagine they were removed due to increased germ-cell cancer risk. So there.

Mike C - 2009-12-01 21:45:23

I've seen the Barbara porno too. She really gets into sucking a guy off. It has to be her.

Ernie - 2010-05-12 14:02:11

Streisand wouldn't be the first celeb to do porno before making it big - Sly Stallone, Victoria Principal, and Joan Crawford immediately spring to mind. Also Betty White, Lucille Ball, Mary Tyler Moore and so many more female celebs have posed nude before becoming famous. Victoria Principal was on the Carson show around 1979 and Johnny asked her if she would ever pose nude. She said no way, she would never do anything like that. But she posed nude for Playboy in the June 1972 issue (to promote her role in "The Life & Times Of Judge Roy Bean", and in '69 or '70 posed nude for Mayfair magazine.

Ernie - 2010-11-16 17:45:03

Don't forget the old urban legend about Rod Stewart: that he was allegedly hospitalized and had his stomach pumped and they discovered a huge amount of semen (trying to allege that Rod had sucked off one too many men).

All Of you seem a few kerrnels short of a cob. Where do you get your information? The only ones that know the truth are the celebrities themselves. God Bless you all. The nut hut awaits.

HOOPMAN - 2011-01-10 20:56:30

Every time I hear a Mamas & Papas song, I think outloud,"have another ham sandwich, Mama!" It sounds better than "Have another heart attack in Harry Nillson's apartment."

Martie - 2011-01-10 22:26:57

Wikipedia states Zappa's father was a chemist and mathematician, so it's highly unlikely Mr. Greenjeans was his father.

MOVIELANDMAGIC.COM - 2011-01-14 15:47:05

BARBRA STREISAND did make a porno movie in the early 1960s. Not only do I own the "rights" to it, but after seeing it, Jon Peters offered me a lot of cash to destroy the negative. I didn't and sold over 100,000 copies in the underground market. If she dies before me I will release it world wide. And by the way I love Babs even after seeing the "sleazy" BBC stag movie!

lizard king - 2011-12-15 22:22:24
jim morrison an undercover drug agent being sent too paris yeah right i highly dont think soo why isnt anyone talking about that hes a legend lead singer of the doors wow who cares about barbara streisand she sucks and i like jamie lee curtis so thats her business and all the movies and research i believe frank sinatra did eat off a prostitutes chest he was a real freak
celia - 2012-08-08 03:35:59

this can't be true!!!

melanie - 2012-08-10 04:58:58

the richard gere thing IS true. it happened in Toronto. my friends mom worked at the hospital. i never even knew about this story until she told me.

Olde Pharte - 2012-10-02 23:15:56

I saw the Streisand porn film in the early 70s. Two guys are standing facing each other and Barbra turns from one to the other, sucking each for a while then switching to the other. Except for the brief moment when she turns, you only see her in profile. You can spot the nose a mile off. If you saw three seconds of the film you'd know it's her.

Rosa Moline - 2012-11-10 16:46:20

WHY IS IT THAT BARBRA STREISAND HAS NOT WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE HARDCORE PORN AND FILED A LAW SUIT FOR USING HER NAME? MANY BABS FANS ARE HAVING A HARD TIME BELIEVING OR ACCEPTING SHE WOULD DO SUCH A THING. BARBRA IS A FRAUD SHE FOOLED HER AUDIENCE BY CREATING A WHOLESOME IMAGE OF HERSELF . THE HARD CORE PORN IS VERY HARD TO SWALLOW FOR BARBRA AFICIONADO.

Magik-Merlin-777 - 2012-11-26 03:32:12

I thought I heard them all.Some interesting theories in here.

Mama Cass - 2014-09-26 07:40:56

The mama Cass rumor has been going on forever because there was a half eaten sandwich in the room. According to her daughter and you can tell by looking at her nose, she was jewish and never ate pork in her life.

Brian - 2015-01-06 01:55:00

#4 is true unless the copy I have is of an absolute duplicate of her.

Anonymous - 2015-05-29 22:19:05

You have a picture of CHARLES MANSION as #8, not TIM LEARY! Two VERY different people~!

[Editor's note:  We never thought anyone would confuse Charles Manson for Timothy Leary.  Hope this helps!]
