Just a reminder to hold your horses for one more day and then let loose with those checks, money orders, and credit cards for the 1st Annual BLB Bette Midler Birthday Fundraiser For NYRP which begins tomorrow, Oct 1, 2009. If you don’t have the money now, don’t fret, my precious ones, because the fundraiser lasts til November 28th, giving you plenty of time to save up for some cash and a bithday card or note. Please do not send notes or birthday cards without a check for it will come across rather tacky compared with the others. Plus it’s not fair to the others!

It’s just what the primetime cable news lineup needed – another hour-long program tilted toward left-of-center politics with character assassination on conservatives.
CNN Headline News debuted its “The Joy Behar Show” on Sept. 29, which included appearances by lefty comedian Jeanane Garofalo, CNN’s Jack Cafferty and actress Bette Midler. Garofalo doubled down on her low regard for conservative 9/12 and tea party protesters, labeling them as racists. Cafferty went after President Barack Obama for his disregard of the carbon footprint his lobbying efforts in Copenhagen for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Olympics.
There’s a new Bette Midler Songbook available on Amazon, at least in the US and the UK, as I’m sure it is in other places as well.
Vocal transcriptions of 24 songs from the Divine Miss M, including: Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy * Friends * From a Distance * The Glory of Love * The Rose * Some People’s Lives * Stay with Me * Stuff like That There * Ukulele Lady * The Wind Beneath My Wings * and more.
Love, Mister D

CNN executives have confirmed that the Divine Miss M. herself, Bette Midler, will join Joy Behar in the launch of Behar’s new talkshow, HLN’s “The Joy Behar Show,” premiering tomorrow, September 29 at 9pm EST. Midler no doubt signifies cache for talk show hosts: she was Johnny Carson‘s last guest on The Tonight Show.
Behar will join HLN colleagues Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and A.J. Hammer. Additional guests for the shows’ premiere include Bay Buchanan and Janeane Garofalo, who will join Behar in a panel discussion that will no doubt leave audiences laughing.
The 1986 movie Ruthless People is a black comedy loosely based on the O. Henry short story The Ransom of Red Chief, that starred Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It was directed by David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Jerry Zucker.
When Ken (Reinhold) and Sandy Kessler (Slater) find themselves in an untenable financial position, they hatch a desperate scheme to get rich by kidnapping Barbara Stone (Midler), the overweight loud-mouthed wife of ruthless businessman Sam Stone (DeVito). This scheme is motivated in no small part by the fact that Sam has stolen successful fashion designs from the couple and is thus largely responsible for their woes. They plan to demand a large ransom from Stone.

It was no piece of cake, but Queens rapper 50 Cent finally got the chance to throw his party. “40 Day,” the event he planned with fellow Queens native Bette Midler, to give back to his community, finally went down on Saturday, Sept. 26, to the surprise of pretty much everyone.
According to MTV, over 2,500 people showed up to the event, which was promoted solely by word of mouth, with a couple of flyers passed out the day before. G-Unit rapper Lloyd Banks claimed he didn’t even know about the event until 3AM, the night before. The show was initially canceled due to several local politicians’ alleged concerns that “a rival or punk out to make a name for himself would try to shot Fitty during the performance,” which in turn lead to 50 being unable to file the proper paperwork with the city.
