Brooke Shields Performs Cabaret – The New York Times | ET REALITY


Ms. Shields was asked about her experience with Trump.

“I was making a movie in the late ’90s,” he said. “My phone rang and it was him. He said, ‘You and I should go out.’ You are America’s sweetheart and I am the richest man in the world. People will love it.” At that point I suppressed my laughter and said, ‘Thank you, I’m very flattered, but I have a boyfriend and I don’t think he’d appreciate me leaving him.’ And he said, ‘Well, I think you’re making a big mistake.’ I said, ‘Well, I’ll have to take my chances.’”

Didn’t you know George Michael was gay? And did they really have a date?

“A few,” he said. “He was very respectful of my virginity.”

“Read the book!” shouted a publicist, referring to “There Was a Girl,” the 2014 memoir in which she tells the story.

Ms Shields added that despite the appearance that her relationships with Mr Michael and Mr Jackson seemed simply a sham, she had real ties to both.

“We had a lot of fun,” he said. “I wasn’t just a purpose, like a beard. In reality it was more than that. The conversations, the fears, the discussions.”

The conversation focused on his podcast, where he spoke with Stacey Abrams, Rosie O’Donnell, Chelsea Handler and Kris Jenner, and the one person he was looking forward to meeting: Britney Spears, who hasn’t given an interview in years.

“I tried really hard to find a way to be the first real interview,” Ms. Shields said. “And I haven’t achieved it. But I am the only person who could do justice to the reality of the story. Whatever it is.”
