GUESS YOU’VE seen the glam ad of Cher and Bette Midler touting their Las Vegas extravaganzas. When I mentioned it to the divine Miss M, she went off into a burst of praise for her compatriot Cher. “She is so great. She has never looked better. She is beautiful!” said Bette.
So then Bette reminded me to get tickets for her May 19 barbecue picnic in Fort Tryon Park where she and many others, some almost equally famous, will hold the New York Restoration Project Annual Spring event.
This is Bette’s 10th anniversary of her big green project and her group has rescued 114 community gardens, just to name one triumph.
So if you’d like to chow down outside with Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson or hear the “In the Heights” star Lin-Manuel Miranda do his rap on his “hood” or rub elbows with Dolly Parton (Mister D: Supposed to be a no show) or listen to Judy Gold run the whole shebang, do call 914-579-1000.
Our Miss Midler is a concerned citizen par excellence. Everybody talks about going green but Bette has been there, done that and she’s not only greener than “Shrek,” she is “The Jolly Green Little Sex Bomb.” We must not fall back from helping Bette accomplish her great good work for New York City.
