Besides being funny and sassy, the hit sitcom A nanny from hell can boast of having received a pharaonic amount of renowned guest stars. Celine Dion, Liz Taylor, Ray Charles, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, Whoopi Goldberg, Coolio, Hugh Grant and even former United States President Donald Trump (yes, yes!) Have all made appearances in the legendary series before. . The only downside in this idyllic journey: singer Barbra Streisand. Indeed, it is the only big star of the time to never have set foot on the set ofA nanny from hell. Much to the chagrin of Fran Drescher, the interpreter of Miss Fine and co-creator with her ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson of the show.
A disappointment that Peter Marc Jacobson confided to the microphone of the podcast Oh, M.Sheffield. In the latter, the interpreter of the former boss of Fran Fine admitted that the cameo of Barbra Streisand had always been in the boxes: “the teams talked about it all the time“. Unfortunately, the latter could never see the light of day due to a lack of budget and a scheduling conflict. A great disappointment for Fran Drescher, a big fan of the singer in real life. Fortunately, the latter was still able to console herself during a meeting as magical as it was improbable, as revealed by Peter Marc Jacobson.
“When we started doing Nanny, we didn’t have any money at all. It was at this point that Barbra Streisand made her first major comeback tour. We bought tickets for Madison Square Garden. We could only afford the last row at the time. After this purchase, the series happened. We then went to the concert, seated in the last row. This is where two security guards suddenly took us to the second row before telling us that Barbra Streisand would like to meet us after the concert. It was an amazing night“he recounted. A daydream that one day the character Fran Fine might be able to live in a possible revival ofA nanny from hell… who knows ?
