Well, that sounds like my surprise birthday parties…Barry could never, ever keep a secret from me. And then I took over. I wonder if Bette does the same thing…LOL
Anyway, seems as if Martin and his elves are planning a surprise birthday party for Bette and it’s driving her insane…but methinks she’ll gain control “somewhere along the way.” There I go quoting songs again…I do wish I could stop!
Anyway, that’s basically what she and the girls talked about for the short segment that Bette was on.
Later on, Bette came out and sang a sassy version of “I’m A Woman” to close out the show. She seemed like she was enjoying herself and left the audience in good spirits.
Thanks to Da’Vi, we have some scans from the show:

MIDLER PREPARING FOR BIG SURPRISE
BETTE MIDLER is bracing herself for a 60th birthday surprise because she knows her husband is arranging something grand.
The WIND BENEATH MY WINGS singer is convinced her husband MARTIN is planning a big bash to help the diva celebrate her landmark birthday later this week (01DEC05).
She says, “I have no idea what’s going on… and every time I say, ‘Well, did you invite so-and-so, he says, ‘What party?’
“But I see them on the phone all the time… I see them in the office, my beautiful assistant, JILL, and I see my husband plotting and I see him at the computer all the time and I know there’s something going on.
“I know there’s a party; I just don’t know where it is, who’s coming, what time it is.”
Midler secretly hopes her instincts are wrong – because she hates hosting parties.
She explains, “I would be so relieved (if I was wrong). Parties are hard for me because I always feel like I have to entertain.”
