You probably texted someone your pin number by accident during a battle I might have how are you lily Tomlin. Steph you well. I can't believe we got you in between being honored. Just that's hard to catch you between you. Were just honored at the Kennedy Center. When you're eighty you get a lot of honors. There's so little time left a tick tock. No no no don't say that you look great. You are okay we did. We have played your phone message by the well. You should be careful when you leave me phone messages because I tend to play them on the air like this last one from the Lily I want. I I want that damned of podcast. I wanted to raise facial. I know the earth is a face listen. I'm GonNa Call Me Back Yard. I'm not GonNa say I just wanted to call you and see how badly humiliated myself yesterday totally drunk but anyone can love you. Love Your Show I love you. Everything's going good impression. My Gosh I should record. My message is more often than I did over serve. You and I apologize drinking champagne shipping. Yes let's say yeah. We're doing this on alcohol sponsor wish Joan well. That's the first thing I'd do if I were your her advanced person. Oh yes because I obviously have an advanced person as greeted you in my garage baseball hat. That was just so humble of you. What was that was one of the most elaborate entrances you've ever made and I had to win my way through those dogs. We all know one one of the dogs phone on that Big Puffy puffy cloud referred on one of the other ones yeah so it'd be fine and we won't have broken an icon okay now where I don't even know where to start so you you did just turned eighty this just recently hard to believe right. You know the other the other their messages. I kept I've to you know who their from no Jane Jane Wagner. She leaves the nicest messages whenever I feel down. I just listen to her messages about how great she is like. I mean this is why you guys are so this is what they were honoring right at the Kennedy Center fifty years but she's like such a warm supportive supportive person I can imagine as a partner not only she brilliant writer but she's just so everyone the beats her says. Oh my God she's so warm. She's so kind you would think he will yeah. She's then. She treats me that way. She says calmed down Lily. I've heard that I've heard of so yeah. No she's a she's a delightful and and introspective and thoughtful person yeah well and she puts up with you so yes she has yes and but that's a okay. I mean. I don't even know where to start with your. That's what everybody wants. The fifty years you guys have been together. You're one of the few ah but this is you guys have theater at the LGBT center and you must first of all be the fact that we've had such a big backlash in Gay Rights and when Dad Yeah Yeah you know you just interviewed you said in nineteen seventy seven. I'm scared maybe I'm not offensive enough. Everyone likes me too much. It's a bad sign. You can't be humorous or satirist if everyone likes you too much but meanness she says was not her style. I don't see the point in harshness. Humor is absolutely taste. Don't use to have some fucking. Shit to say about Donald Trump though come on I mean isn't it time to unleash your taste less. Yes that would be the trump has made me mean anything but a pundit about humor right what the hell can you. He's so mean. Isn't it hardly some young people being. He should be he should be. I was just cruelty. Yeah Yeah I mean. It's just sort of the door the border the cruelty at the boarder is unbelievable and just general cruelty against the air in the water and every other human being has to breathe. I apparently has his own limited. Personal snow supply of Aaron Wanda and his his sons are mean against animals in my God. You narrated that Elephant Film Beautiful. They were horror. Yes heading those dead cat yeah. I JUST WANNA Puke offensive not laughing. Just see I'm drawing out the meaning you now we can draw this out. Donald Trump's a motherfucker Ikea is you actually. I've never anybody in my whole life. I hate him so much I now we're in in the middle of this like I. I'm like how much more on the open can the reason be than this whistled thing. This is just right. It's just because he's he's not Daesh issue. Just does anything anything. Ms Probably was the earnest intelligence. There's so many acts you can't even see no simple thinking you know life life can and affirming human beings can't keep up with it. I Know No. It's an avalanche and you're just kind of trying to save yourself yeah. I'm trying to drag you into Ernestine. It's probably somebody that was listening in the intelligence community to wherever he just did. They said it was multiple acts right. Oh yes I think it was you know I have some information. That would be good. Yeah it. You know if I can get my hands on the absolute bona fide evidence I would turn turn it in a second. I still got a morning radio urgency with a whistle blower. I can't believe you've endured me for so many years just a few weeks a few brief weeks. Yeah I interviewed when I was a baby. Dj and I don't really I think my mouth move but my brain wasn't yes. Oh you actually call the did a bit as Ernestine steen on my legs wacky morning at tape. I probably have it because I remember your publicists called me. It's really wanted to know if you thought that was funny silence. I was like I was like twenty seven. It's like Lily Tom. Yes yes. She's fucking Lily Tomlin. God have you kind of pro. You are really Tomlin probably have that tape but you have nothing to play it on. Everything schedule doesn't exist around no not at all. You've you've. You've just been endlessly kind me. You've just gotten my first agent out here. You'd say yes to everything which is really to your house. I'm so nice yeah well. I told you that seventy seven article I I almost committed and that was like career suicide yeah making that statement statement it with this. LGBT come talk to us about what it felt like to not be out and for how long and how scary it was. I mean well. You know what it wasn't like. Jane and I weren't present or we're. We're really identified. We we never had well. You've seen those that old cartoon were guy. It comes out and he says says he admits he's a heterosexual. He said everybody knew it but I never had a press conference. Yeah you weren't like a tablet lake. Here's only Tomlin with a new fake boyfriends. Yeah no no and so I don't i. I've talked talked about myself for like fifty years yeah fifty. I wish I had all that tape and they've carry it with me and the tomb too boring yourself to death. Is that what interesting we all. Find it endlessly fascinating just so you know but yeah no. It's just an interesting thing that I would assume that you were such a comedy sort of icon and legend that you didn't want to be known as a gay well. I want to be identified that way as like the poster girl for struggling struggling movement although maybe would have struggled less yeah but or maybe I would have struggled more yeah will never know the answer to that yeah that will go to the formula. I mean I've told the story to and I'm sure many people will turn off now and I started no no five. I was offered the cover we're of time if I would come out. I remember and it was for and they just needed a gay person. You know kind of Oh. She's gay and I don't know what they would have done with that but they you were so they finally and I I was sort of insulted that I was pegged for that reason and not for my artistry by Roy Totally fancied and and they did get a nice gentleman from the armed services to be on the cover yeah but I got the cover two years later when I did my first Broadway way shirt. Oh didn't you've done let me look at your Broadway. That's yeah that united tickets are so expensive. I was just in New York and I just refused to go to the theater yeah. Of course I could've. You don't have the cheap seats yeah. You don't have that kind of money. That was one of the highlights of my life. I got to see search for signs of intelligent life in New York on Broadway and I got to drink champagne backstage with Lillian. Jane and I remember I had been down on and you said. Are you going through Chemo Syria. Yes you did it. I was like no. I just like you're not serious did yes you did so. That's an unfortunate fashion choice Stephanie.
