MIKE MYERS' MOTHER-IN-LAW RAISES `BIG WHOOP' OVER `DIETER'
MIKE MYERS' MOTHER-IN-LAW RAISES `BIG WHOOP' OVER `DIETER' SCANDAL
NEW YORK (Wireless Flash) -- Mike Myers' mother-in-law isn't laughing much now that he's being sued for refusing to make the "Dieter" movie. Linda Richman -- who inspired Myer's "Coffee Talk" character on "Saturday Night Live" -- tells "Entertainment Weekly" she'd "like to kill" Myers for giving up a $20 million paycheck and wonders if he's "meshugge" -- Yiddish for "crazy." Nevertheless, Richman is upset at how "Dieter" producers -- including Ron Howard -- are treating her son-in-law and admits she'd like "to slap Opie" for calling Myers "difficult." In her words: "They called Streisand difficult too...and that's good company to keep."
