'Life is fun for me when they come over. They love playing with the dogs and we have fun.

In her new memoir, Barbra has spoken about some of her famous ex-boyfriends but she confessed that if it had been up to her, she would have left them out.
'Listen, I didn't want to write about any of them!' she said emphatically after King listed her biggest conquests.
