“Nurse your son for at least a year. And read to your child every night.”

Well, the invitations arrived today and in true Divine fashion, Bette has recycled…the invitations looked somewhat familiar…this original artwork was created by Hilary Knight in 1997 (you know, now that I think about it, this might have been the invite to the first Hulaween Ball, duh!) and I really love his work.
He drew “Eloise” for Kay Thompson , plus a lot of Broadway show posters (“No, No Nanette” and Angela Lansbury’s version of “Gypsy” are probably the most famous). Anyway I find the card to colorful, whimsical, and fun!

Two things on Bette from The New York Post today…the first from Cindy Adam’s column, the second from Ms. Liz Smith’s column. I don’t think we’ll see Bette apologizing for anything as her jokes are used as spin to detract from an increasingly failing and weak admininistation (my words), while the bigger issues and concerns she brought up are left hanging in the air like dust.
From Cindy Adams:
SURPRISED at Bette Midler’s recent anti-Bush screed? She wants a Million Man March on the White House….(Mister D: I would be there in a heartbeat!)

*The Pigskin Ball, a fundraising event held last Friday that was spearheaded by Coughlin and Jets running back Curtis Martin, raised $425,000, to be split by two children’s charities. Coughlin’s Jay Fund and the National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children’s Foundation (NLEAFCF), which Martin works with, each have an additional $212,500 to pursue their missions of helping children in need.
The inaugural event was a combined initiative of Coughlin’s Jay Fund Foundation and the NLEAFCF. It was held at Cipriani’s in Manhattan and was attended by approximately 450 people, including over 40 active and retired members of the Giants and Jets. Coughlin and Martin were the event’s co-hosts and American Airlines was the presenting sponsor.
Two BetteHeads, or rather 2 Divine women in their own rights, sent in reviews of the Madison Square Garden concert….they actually attended, and they give the whole lowdown. Seems they both had a great time. I hope to have those up tonight. If not, definitely by tomorrow night. Thanks in advance to Jamie and Julia.
To those of you who have written some emails to me and I have not replied. I promise to get back with you. This has been a rough and tumble week for many reasons, but I’m seeing it through!! 🙂
Last night I felt kind of pressured from others and myself to post “the big fat, drug-addled idiot’s” contact information since there was so much vileness coming through my mailbox. However, I went through this last year and learned a valuable lesson…press the delete button. It’s better for the soul.
For those of you that feel compelled to voice your opinion, and I think that’s a noble thing to do…all you have to do is type the dude’s name in followed by the word “contact” and just give it a go. You can go through and list every beautiful and positive thing Ms. Midler has ever done for this country and it will fall on deaf ears (literally, I think, since that’s a side effect of oxycontin). The same goes for the folks at Fox. If that makes you feel good, then do it, but I just don’t feel it is productive. They don’t care. These people are on the dole and only on the payroll, if you know what I mean. (Check Out This Cute Site: News Hounds – We Watch FOX So You Don’t Have To)

Big Apple to the Big Easy
Madison Square Garden, New York
Tuesday, Sept. 20
By Frank Scheck
Thanks to Da’Vi for the illustration – not sure who drew it, but interested to find out!
The evening might have begun with a funeral dirge, but the atmosphere Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden was hardly funereal.
Rather, this all-star benefit concert for the Gulf Coast victims of Hurricane Katrina was a celebratory affair that proudly rejoiced in the rich musical heritage of New Orleans.

I don’t have any audio/video, but Bette came out with a bang! She did some banter which we Bette fans so much love…she took quite a few digs at the administration….the ineptitude, the stupidity, the dangers, the lack of accountability…with her biting wit with what’s that called???? Oh, an element of truth. Hurts doesn’t it??? But, geez, if people don’t know Bette’s act by now…I mean, come on…it ain’t really worth the effort explainin’ is it???
