LOS ANGELES, CA – Academy Award-nominated actress Barbara Hershey has been accused of practicing witchcraft, and she is not taking it lying down.
Hershey currently lives in Los Angeles with long-term boyfriend, LOST actor Naveen Andrews. During a recent custody battle, Naveen was awarded sole custody of his son after the boy’s mother Elena Eustache accused Hershey of witchcraft and poisoning the child.
While Eustache will have to undergo psychiatric testing in order to regain custody, was she really that off the mark?
Hershey has personally spoken to the press to defend herself. “Look, let’s just clear this mess up, shall we? I never have, nor will I ever practice witchcraft.
“The term ‘witch’ gets thrown around a lot these days. If I had a friend (not me) who spoke magical incantations in conjunction with a mixture of amphibian parts and swamp water in order to get back at ego-inflated studio executives who are too bitter and judgmental to hire older- no, more refined actresses for lead roles in films, would anyone really consider this friend (again, not me) to be a witch?”
When one of the gossip columnists nodded emphatically, flames shot out of Hershey’s eyes and set him aflame. She then gasped in surprise, snapped her fingers and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
Jackie Bubbles will be sorely missed in the gossip community.
