Bette Midler in Oceans 9?

Last summer, we were introduced to Debbie Ocean and her newly-formed girl gang of clever criminals in Ocean’s 8, and it showed quite a bit of promise as the beginning of a lady-led heist franchise. While a sequel hasn’t been announced, Sarah Paulson has made it clear she’s interested in Ocean’s 9. Here’s who she would like to join the already star-studded cast:

I would like to add Bette Midler to the cast. I think she’d be great, or Emma Thompson. Can’t go wrong with either of them. Yeah, let’s get them both. Read More

Bette Midler as Dolly Levi

Mister D: I knew about this about 3 weeks ago. I visited a theater forum in the UK and saw all this commotion about Bette Midler coming to the UK to play “Hello Dolly” for the Yukkers!!! So I contacted Divine Central and was told it was very unlikely. So I went back to the forum the other day saying not to get their hopes up. But I never posted it here. I’ve just been really under the weather these last few months. That’s why my posting has been so erratic. I have been almost bedridden for 6 months. And now I’m just coming out of the dark into the light.

While I’m posting, I might as well tell you not to expect the official Bette Midler site to reopen. They just didn’t feel like it was worth it to keep it running. They said the lack of traffic didn’t warrant it. I had a lot of ideas to keep it running, but I don’t think they want to get that involved.

Video: Bruce Forsyth’s Big Night – Includes Bette Midler Segment – 1978

This video, Bruce Forsyth’s Big Night is something like a telethon with many guests. There is a full Bette Midler segment with a hilarious interview and two songs, Hello In There and Leader Of The Pack. This is an English show, Bette Midler was there starting her World Tour.

Bette Midler was performing at the London Palladium in 1978 in her Trash With Flash tour, and I went to see her the week before she was due on my TV show Bruce Forsyth’s Big Night. All the way through her act she kept falling on the floor and talking to the audience from where she was lying. It was very funny indeed. And boy could she sing. Read More
