Just got an exclusive ( I have to tout because it’s so, so rare!) that Bruce will be in VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club next season!
Yes!!! He gets to be paid to lose weight!!! But these coaches are rough…so don’t get your panties all tied in knots when they start screaming at Mister V. 🙁
Anyway, Bruce starts filming the series September 9th, on and off, through December 21, 2005. The new season will air in early 2006. So let’s just wish him the best of luck in this endeavor.
From the Artistic Director, Bailiwick Repertory, Mr. David Zak:
Bailiwick Repertory is thrilled that Bruce Vilanch will be honored with our Trailblazer Award on October 30, at our theater at 1229 West Belmont in Chicago.
Bruce has been such a great leader for so many of the non-profits across the country, and his gift of laughter during dangerous times is priceles.
This event is open to the public, and will include a dinner/reception and dessert buffet.

I’m sure some of you have friends and relatives that have been devastated by Hurricane Katrina…just about all my relatives are from Biloxi, Gulfport, and Pensacola…and friends from New Orleans and the surrounding area. Like many, I’m just horrified at what I’m seeing on the television. Not getting any first hand reports from family or friends right now…can’t reach them.
But there are ways we can all pitch in. I saw the Governor of Louisiana or somebody like that and they said there are 3 main ways to help:
Yahoo has a nice feature where you can sample artist’s music…even Bette’s…but I thought some of you would like to familiarize yourself with Ms. Peggy Lee:
Also check out her official site to get a feel of what she was all about: Peggy Lee
Love, Mister D
PS: And of course, here are your Bette samples 🙂 : Bette Midler Audio Samples
Tentative release date for Bette's "Bette Midler Sings The Peggy Lee Songbook" is October 25th On Sony/BMG...!!!
In 1992, “Northern Exposure” and “Murphy Brown” were big winners at the annual Emmy Awards. Bette Midler picked up an Emmy for her appearance on the “Tonight Show” just before Johnny Carson retired.

Bette Midler to Voice Clean Up the World Announcements
SYDNEY, Australia (ENS) – World famous entertainer Bette Midler has pledged her support for Clean Up the World, the global outreach arm of Clean Up Australia, one of the largest international environmental campaigns.
An active environmentalist, Midler met with Ian Kiernan, chairman and founder of Clean Up the World and Clean Up Australia, to discuss ways they can work with communities internationally to create a cleaner world.
Bruce Vilanch Bids Adieu To Broadway Sunday, September 4th, 2005, But He Has Much In Store For All Of Us!
Well, after 700 + performances in the smash musical, Hairspray, Mister V will take his final bow as Edna on Sunday, September 4, 2005.
If you haven’t seen his fabulously funny turn as Tracy Turnblad’s mom, now is the time to do it. He won raves in this role and rightly so. He took a role originated by the incredible Harvey Feinstein and made it his own, bringing down the house in cities across the U.S. before hitting the Broadway stage last year.
But Mister V is never one to rest on his laurels. He’ll be back on stage in San Francisco with the sequel to his successful one man show, Almost Famous, in November. Hopefully he’ll take this on the road as well….

DOORS slam with sudden force. Whispers seep from ancient walls and temperatures plummet to an icy chill.
But while everyone around shrinks in to a quivering heap, world-famous spirit medium Derek Acorah calmly coaxes out the mischief-makers to make contact with the world beyond.
