CELEBRITY MELTDOWN ROUND-UP: Chevy Chase’s “friends” tore him a new one at the Friars Club over the weekend. Why were they so hard on him? The ever-so-eloquent Al Franken told Chase, “Because you’ve always been an arrogant bleep,” Franken said. “I don’t like you Chevy, and none of us ever did.”

Maybe Chase should have asked for the roast to have been held in Cuba.

Meanwhile, “former movie star” (as the New York Post dubbed him–ouch!) Alec Baldwin was booed in Minnesota, a prominent dairy state, for his efforts on behalf of PETA to outlaw milk.

And of course, Barbra Streisand’s Shakespearean inventions aren’t going over too well, either.
