Mister D: I did put new music up in the jukebox and records section of the site, so be sure to check it out. I put it up around the 30th of June…Have a safe and sunny summer..
Due to the overwhelming response, Bootleg Betty will only be closed for the summer. I appreciate all of your emails and will take heed your threats to tar and feather me if I should ever try to desert you again!

Who knows which witch to watch? With today’s release of “Bewitched,” the story of the nose-wiggling Samantha with Nicole Kidman in the starring role, the witch gets top billing in a high- profile summer flick.
But if “Bewitched” works its spell and you want to sample more witch movies, there’s actually not much competition in the genre. Although they have played minor roles in numerous films, witches as major characters remain somewhat of a rarity.

A SAFE HARBOR FOR ELIZABETH BISHOP
A New York Premiere
By Marta Góes
Directed by Richard Jay-Alexander
with Amy Irving
How did a profound passion for art and beauty create a Pulitzer Prize winning writer? Behold the Golden Globe winning and Academy Award nominated actress Amy Irving as she explores the creative evolution of the legendary poetess Elizabeth Bishop. Ms. Góes’ commanding script transports us from the harbors of Rio, Seattle, New York, and Boston, while it details a sweeping landscape of the truths behind commitment. Overflowing with love, loss, politics, and sexual intrigue, A Safe Harbor for Elizabeth Bishop invites us on a journey of redemption and self-acceptance through the power of poetry.

Well, I found this news to be a sad note for the Bette community.
Terri, webmistress for experiencethedivine.com, Kiss-My-Brass.com, and DearBette.com, has decided that she may need to close down her sites due to “having a life” to pursue….(my phraseology) 🙂
As most of you know, Terri was one of the very first to start a Bette site, almost 7 years ago, and she has been going strong ever since, creating what I think is the ultimate in Bette sites….following Bette’s career from the beginning to the present. Terri actually goes to school studying web design and development, so her site has always reflected the latest of technology. (something that literally makes me want to pull my hair out…computer technology is not a friend to me!!!! 🙂 )
Our friend, Jamie, “another divine ms m,” made her annual trek to Bette’s Spring Affair with family and friends. She was kind enough to send in some pics of the gala. Seems NYRP raised over 500, ooo.00 to keep their beautification of New York growing.
Jamie said the whole affair was fabulous, hot (in both senses of the word), and that the gardens were gorgeous. On a side note, Jamie is doing her part to help clean up the Philly communities by creating some beautiful gardens there with the help of grants and volunteers. You’ll probably be reading more about her efforts here in the near future.

Mister D: Sorry I’m late on this one, but I’m still recovering from surgery.
While you’re reading this now, Darrell from Bette on the Boards should be in L. A. hanging out with an ex-Harlette (not named to protect the innocent and for being so gracious) for a couple of weeks.

Yes, the young canuck is venturing out into the world of La La Land….but what a way to spend your time…talk about an awesome hostess! Hopefully, he’ll come back with some good stories.

Forbes teases its Celebrity 100 list.
In: Will Ferrell, Dave Chappelle, Prince, Bette Midler
Out: Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Cher by Gary Susman
Which star has had the most lucrative year? Forbes magazine, which is releasing its annual Celebrity 100 list in this Friday’s issue, isn’t saying yet.
But the magazine did drop some hints about the makeup of the list. Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Forbes staff writer Peter Kafka noted a changing of the comedy guard, with new movie hitmaker Will Ferrell and Comedy Central cash cow Dave Chappelle making the list for the first time, even as Jim Carrey fell off the list. Similarly, Friends is out (Jennifer Aniston is the only member of the sextet still on the list) and Desperate Housewives is in.
