It was basically an aside — an odd and interesting nugget in an interview with Barbra Streisand that otherwise dealt with heavy topics like sexism and politics.

Indeed, most of the 2,800-word article about Ms. Streisand in Variety is devoted to detailing the actress’s decades-long efforts to break up Hollywood’s boys’ club, as the 90th Academy Awards ceremony approaches with the #MeToo movement as the backdrop.

But it was that one nugget — a brief comment about her dogs — that drew the most attention on Tuesday night.

Singer and actress Barbra Streisand reportedly cloned her dead dog twice, according to a report from Variety magazine.

Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett, she said, were cloned from cells obtained from the stomach and mouth of her 14-year-old dog Samantha. The dog died in 2017.

“They have different personalities,” Streisand said of the dogs. “I’m waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and her seriousness.”

In the report, she didn’t reveal anything else about the cloned dogs, including the cost.

In a 3,000-word feature in Variety this week, Barbra Streisand looks at the #metoo moment, her place as one of Hollywood’s leading ladies for almost 50 years — but what we really want to know about is her dogs.

“Perhaps her biggest reveal: Miss Violet and Miss Scarlett were cloned from cells taken from the mouth and stomach of her beloved 14-year-old dog Samantha, who died in 2017,” wrote Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh about Streisand’s beloved Coton de Tulear dogs. Her third dog, Miss Fanny, is distantly related to the other pups.

In a recent interview with Variety, Barbra Streisand revealed that she had her dog cloned after its death. She now keeps two of the clones as her pets. Although cloning pets surely not cheap, costing upwards of $100,000, the process is possible. Here’s a short walk-through on how it goes.

Streisand, a singer, songwriter, actress and director, revealed that before her 14-year-old Coton de Tulear ‘Samantha’ passed away, she obtained cells from the pup’s mouth and stomach in order to clone her. Now, she has two clones of Samantha named Miss Violet and Miss Scarlet. Although the dogs look like Samantha, Streisand explained it’s still too early to see if they inherited her personality as well.

In an interview with Variety magazine for this month’s cover, legendary singer/actor/filmmaker Barbra Streisand opines on topics ranging from the 2016 election (she says the voting machines were rigged against Hillary Clinton) to the #metoo movement (says Harvey Weinstein once threatened her), but one bombshell has nothing to do with politics or Hollywood.

During the photo shoot, Streisand joked that a portrait with her three coton de tulear dogs should be captioned “Send in the Clones.”
