Barbra Streisand cloned her dead dog because she's the kind of person who has a spare 50k

Bab's is the definition of bougie af.

In a near 3000-word article recently published in Variety, Barbra Streisand offered up a bizarre nugget of info about her puppies that kinda left us feeling a little verklempt.

In a wide-ranging interview, that actually did a good job of delving into sexism and politics, two of Streisand's Coton de Tulear dogs became the real story when Bab's revealed that they were actually cloned from her once beloved dog, Samantha, who died last year.

As the Funny Girl actress tells it, before 14-year-old Samantha died, she had cells from her mouth and stomach harvested to create her dogs Violet and Scarlett.

Obviously besotted with her pets Streisand, 75, still says the dogs are not exactly the same as her old pet was.

"They [the clones] have different personalities," Streisand said.

"I'm waiting for them to get older so I can see if they have her brown eyes and her seriousness."

Now if Bab's given you any ideas to bring your childhood dog who "went to the farm" and never came back back, get ready to cough up; according to The New York Times, process usually costs $50,000.

As you'd probably expect in the age of the internet, animal rights groups had a lot to say about the Oscar-winner's duplication revelation, including PETA who said they would have liked to "talk her out of the cloning" and see her adopt a rescue pet.
