Barbara Streisand and Billy Eichner Spent Thanksgiving Together

We don’t know about you, but we’d happily sell our souls to partake in an intimate thanksgiving feast with Barbara Streisand and Billy Eichner.

Allow us to set the scene: twinkling candles are scattered across the dining table. Pine cones rest rustically on each exquisite piece of china. Dim lights set a cozy yet enigmatic mood. And an exclusive guest list includes our favorite Jewish superstars: Barbra Streisand and Billy Eichner. Together. Giving thanks. Probably spilling tea about the Golden Age of Broadway. Praise!

An image of the swanky gathering made its way onto social media, sending fans into a tailspin. Thinking about Barbra and Billy feasting and kibitzing together fills us with all kinds of giddy gratitude.

Billy confirmed the get-together with uncharacteristic calm:

Thanksgiving is over, but the image of Billy and Barbra talking about the live action “Lion King” teaser trailer in an autumnal setting will stay with us for our entire lives. We give thanks to our icons for providing us with this visual feast.
