Mister D: Nigel from the YUK wrote me and pointed out how it is almost impossible for Bette to be at this benefit and touring Australia at the same time…LOL Maybe she was supposed to perform at this benefit, but now she has just donated something to be auctioned. I’m trying to find out what’s going on, but there just can’t be any way she could do this…anyway, thanks for catching this Nigel…hopefully someone will get back with me…
