In a 2001 interview with O, The Oprahmagazine, the Divine Miss M revealed, "I did have night sweats and hot flashes at first. Then I did this soy-and-primrose oil thing, which helped tremendously. I don’t suggest anyone obsess over menopause and aging. Still, it is true that in this culture, they throw you out when you get older. I see it all the time, especially in my business. At my age, you’re playing somebody’s mother-and there aren’t even a lot of those roles!"
Pal Rosie O’Donnell implied in a 2009 interview on the Tyra Banks Show that Madge has already dealt with menopause, and had imparted some wisdom to the comedian. "She‘s [Madonna] great, she’s a lot like a big sister. When I started having my hormone things, I’m like ‘What the hell is going on?’ She’s like ‘get the cream.’"
Shepherd initially thought of her hot flashes as "sort of fun power surgers." She also said, "I was the first baby boomer to have a prime-time hot flash." But, later she admitted the hot flashes became "really intense and not much fun." In 2004, Shepherd made fun of her situation in a hilarious song and video aptly named The Menopause Blues where she belts out her sufferings while helplessly trying to cool off.
