Barbra Streisand's Receptionist Busted

5/10/2009 4:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barbra Streisand's receptionist needs people -- like criminal defense lawyer Blair Berk.

We've learned Tina Fortenberry was arrested for allegedly possessing cocaine and methamphetamines. She was also busted for possession of a dangerous weapon and for driving on a suspended license.

It happened Wednesday on Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu. Fortenberry was stopped for expired tags. After Sheriff's deputies stopped her they found the contraband inside her car.

The dangerous weapon in her car was a sap -- similar to nunchakus.

At the time of her arrest Fortenberry was carrying some mail for Babs that she was supposed to take to the post office. Someone who works for Barbara had to go to the Sheriff's department to retrieve it.

No word on who is answering Barbra's phones, but we hear Lily Tomlin needs work.

This is to the #9 post named "why not"...I guess it's safe to say that you never get hit on, right? Be honest..You are disgusting. Too bad you don't know that. It's people like you that give humans a bad name.

Babs is supposed to be extremely difficult to be around, much less work for. I'd probably be driven to do drugs, too!
Decades of thinking every other human being is below you: BAD KARMA
No. 8 poster: I totally agree regarding politics and what's happening to California. That's why I moved the hell out of that doomed FailState last year.

If your afraid to make the tabloids yourself. Hire an assistant that can do it for you. She reminds me of Maw Barker. I thought Barbra was good at sizing people up.

Barbra! Pick me! I'll do it for half of what you were paying her, which is probably more than most people make in 5 years!! I'm drug/alcohol/drama free - there won't be any embarrassing posts about me on a celebrity blog! I can get your mail to the post office better than anyone else! Oh please pick me!
