THE SCENE AND HEARD
Caesars Palace headliner Bette Midler, who announced Thursday that she’s ending her two-year run Jan. 31, didn’t score many PR points during her stay. “She refused to support our community,” Alicia Jacobs, KVBC-TV, Channel 3, entertainment reporter, said on the air Thursday. Examples cited by Jacobs included Midler’s lack of cooperation in helping to promote Nevada Ballet Theatre’s major fundraiser, the Black and White Ball, in which she was feted as the honoree. Honorees traditionally agree to media interviews prior to the event. Midler not only turned down media requests and reneged on a scheduled interview with Jacobs, but made one of the shortest acceptance speeches in the history of the event and left minutes after arriving.
