Sandra Bernhard says Madonna’s ‘relationships don’t last’

Sandra Bernard says Madonna’s relationships ‘do not last’ as she opens up about the mysterious demise of their friendship thirty years ago.










Sandra Bernard and Madonna were some of the most popular celebrity friendships of the ’80s and ’90s, before they mysteriously separated in 1992.

While the exact reason behind the demise of their friendship has not been revealed, Sandra shed some light on the situation during this week’s interview.

Speaking to the Hot Takes and Deep Dives podcast, the 66-year-old took a soft swipe at her ex-BFF and said she didn’t enjoy the huge fame that came with their friendship.

“I didn’t really like that level of visibility and had to work constantly,” she explained.

“We as artists all work at it to a certain degree, but I’m a very improvisational person, both on stage and in my life, and I don’t like being restricted in having to be a certain way of my image,” she continued.

What I tried to convey in our friendship was, “I’m really your friend, I’m not just a passing person.”

‘And I think we’ve had a real friendship for a while, but it’s hard for someone like her. She doesn’t really want someone who reflects so much of who she is.

Then the comedian added ambiguously: “Therefore, her relationships just do not last.”

Sandra and Madonna first became friends in the late 80s, and they were rumored to be lovers at one point.

They famously appeared on the 1988 episode of Late Night with David Letterman together, which is pretty much considered one of the most popular late night TV interviews ever.

Sandra also appeared in Madonna’s 1991 documentary Truth or Dare, but their friendship apparently fell apart shortly after its release.

This isn’t the first time the actress Roseanne has opened up about her friendship with the pop legend.

In 2019, she told Us Weekly that she has seen Madonna over the years and there is no longer any drama between them.

We’re great with each other, you know. But people move on and you have your life. I have a daughter, my girlfriend. I have my career. And as you know, things change.

In 2011, Wendy Williams told that she wishes her friendship with Madonna could last longer.

Some people just can’t handle these types of friendships. This is not my style. I like to maintain my friendships throughout my life. … It’s okay, you know. Forgive everything.
