Une bourde monumentale

Rika or Régine?

Très embarrassant!

This is what happens when media outlets employ people who get all their information from Tw*tter instead of proper journalists. Earlier this week, French news channel BFMTV reported on the death of the iconic Israeli-French singer Rika Zaraï at the age of 82 - but featured images of (our Patron Saint) the very-much-still-alive Régine instead!

Both ladies are, of course, house favourites here at Dolores Delargo Towers, so by way of a tribute - first up, something from the late, great Rika:

And, on the Grande Dame Régine's 91st birthday, a classic:

RIP Rika Zaraï (19th February 1938 – 23rd December 2020) [More Rika]

Bonne anniversaire, Régine Zylberberg (born 26th December 1929)! [More Régine]


  1. Well that was a rousing start to the day!
    You can see how the muddle happened though - somebody in charge of obituaries was a bit worse for wear and not concentrating properly.

    1. To the intern who drew the short straw to be on duty that day, all red-headed old ladies look the same, more like. Jx

  2. Régine doesn't look too happy at being mistaken for Rika. Which, I suppose, is understandable, as who wants to be mistaken for a corpse (maysherestinpeace).

    1. Régine doesn't specialise in "looking happy", methinks... Jx


  3. Sad to lose Rika Zara but imagine the tragedy of losing her and the Divine Régine at the same time !
