Eartha Kitt got cut.

The veteran entertainer was supposed to deliver a luncheon speech Friday to the National Press Club in Canberra, Australia, but the group canceled her appearance because she'd given too many interviews beforehand.Reporters don't want to write the same story twice, explained club manager Frank Crews.

Kitt, who is touring Australia, said she was surprised and disappointed the show didn't go on.

"Psychologically, there was a feeling of rejection," she said.
