8 Stars Who Couldn’t Cut It as Murphy Brown’s Secretary, From JFK, Jr To Bette Midler

The Wrap
8 Stars Who Couldn’t Cut It as Murphy Brown’s Secretary
Brian Welk | May 11, 2018 @ 11:14 AM

“Murphy Brown” is returning to television on CBS for 13 episodes during the 2018-19 season — and on May 18 it will have been 20 years since its finale episode aired. While a lot has changed in media since Candice Bergen’s Brown hosted the fictional news broadcast “FYI,” one thing that hasn’t changed is how hard it is to find good help. One of the show’s longest recurring gags was how nearly every week Brown had a wacky and incompetent new secretary, everyone from a man with a Hitler mustache to a pleasant looking woman who worshiped Satan. Over 90 people sat in that assistant’s chair over the show’s 10 seasons, including some celebrity cameos, but not one of them lasted.

CBS Paul Reubens  Pee-Wee Herman himself helped out Murphy Brown, appearing in six episodes of the show as Stan Lansing’s nephew.

Marcia Wallace

During a special crossover episode of “Murphy Brown,” Carol proved to be Brown’s best secretary ever, a real keeper. But at the end of the episode, Bob rushes into the office and begs for Carol to come back and work for him, despite Brown’s pleading.

John F Kennedy Jr Murphy Brown

CBS John Kennedy Jr. You can hear the women in the live audience swooning when it’s revealed that John John is Brown’s latest secretary. “I guess the lawyer thing didn’t work out,” Brown jokes. He wasn’t there to work, but to drop off a “wedding present” that was just a fake cover of the magazine he edited, “George.”

Kramer Murphy Brown

NBC Kramer  When Kramer (Michael Richards) heads out to Los Angeles on an episode of “Seinfeld,” Jerry and Elaine spot him on an episode of “Murphy Brown” as another new secretary. His rapid-fire typing is hysterical, and the show even teases that she has “a good feeling” about him.

Bette Midler Murphy Brown

CBS Bette Midler  In the show’s stellar finale, Bette Midler took charge as secretary Caprice Feldman. “Caprice! With two Cs, interlocking like Chanel!” Her wealthy socialite type was always told by her (dead) husband that she could never hold down a job. Well she picked one with quite the track record.

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Season 10, Episode 7: The Mermaid Fantasy runway challenge, a homage to the Divine Miss M

Mister D: So they did a Bette Midler/Delores Delago tribute on Rupaul and I missed it, but I did have the hilarious pleasure of reading some of the younger generation’s reaction. There was the who is Bette Midler crowd. Really. Some just didn’t get Delores Delago. What’s there not to get? And last and least the social justice warriors who thought the act was misguided and making fun of disabled people. Well, think they would be flabbergasted at how a disabled person could be so resourceful that she could choreograph a dance, sing fabulously while rolling around at breakneck speed on a stage, tell jokes, and then to top it off lead a fucking sing a long. Or maybe they could have just looked at it as a resourceful mermaid who went on to become a superstar while stranded on land. Thank God the majority of folks were overjoyed with glee at a homage to Bette Midler and the recently deceased Delores DeLago, The Toast Of Chicago. Long Live Delores! Read More

BetteBack June 9, 1997: Bette Midler Hits The Ruby Wax Show

Daily Herald Suburban
June 9, 1997

hqdefault

“The Ruby Wax Show” has a distinctly British feel. It’s a lark, as Wax compares breasts with Pamela Anderson Lee, climbs into bed with Goldie Hawn and goes shopping with Bette Midler. But the thing that makes it work — both here and abroad — is Wax’s Midwestern straightforwardness, which must seem as exotic to U.K.viewers as “Cracker” is to us.

Wax holds up one of Lee’s skimpy T-shirts and says with disbelief, “Now, you don’t have a 4-year-old child. This is for your body.” She discusses childbirth with Hawn, saying, “I never forgave my children for not knowing where the exit was.” She compares struggling actor jobs with Midler and talks about being a waitress at the Evanston Holiday Inn.

Charlie Puth knows how to drive the conversation. The 24-year-old doesn’t skip a beat when asked who he’d like to see sub in for Selena Gomez for their chart-topping single “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”

“I’d love to perform it with Bette Midler,” he says. “I would make this whole jazz orchestral arrangement with her.” Oh, Bette? You mean your fellow co-mentor on this upcoming season of the “The Voice,” premiering Monday on NBC? “Yeah, that’s why I said her,” he coyly adds. Read More
