Gleeâ€™s Jessalyn Gilsig Wants Bette Midler to Guest Star
February 26, 2010
With all the celebs flocking to the set of Glee for their guest spots, one of the showâ€™s stars, Jessalyn Gilsig, says thereâ€™s one icon sheâ€™d love to see join the cast for a little song and dance.
â€œBette Midler should be on the show,â€ said Gilsig, who plays Terri Schuester, at the Costume Design Guild Awards Thursday. â€œIâ€™d want her to be my aunt or something. You can imagine Bette Midler as a kid. She must have been one of these Glee kids. She must have been so misunderstood and struggled so much, but sheâ€™s driven the same way Rachel is driven. I think she would be a good fit.â€
JIVING WITH JOAN: Before hitting the red carpet for the Oscars, Joan Rivers plays the Paramount in Aurora on Thursday. As she told me this week, her jokes continue to be culled from current affairs. Bringing up Tiger Woods’ wife Elin, Joan calls her ”the Conan O’Brien of famous cheaters’ wives. Like Conan, she can walk away with millions!”
Talking about her grandson Cooper, 9, Joan jokingly said she worried ”he’s too butch. … I was praying for a gay grandson. Without one, who’s going to sit by my rocking chair and listen to me talk about how I knew Cher and Liza Minnelli and Bette Midler?
A Little Night Music With Bette
By Jerry Adler | NEWSWEEK
From the magazine issue dated Sep 27, 1993
IN 1964, SUSAN SONTAG, WHOSE IDEAS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR appreciating the intellectual context of Radio City Music Hall, described camp as “a private code among small urban cliques”–NYU grad students, for instance, crowding the revival houses to laugh themselves silly over “Dark Victory.” What Sontag could not have foreseen was how that elite sensibility would someday sweep the nation. just a few years later a young Honolulu-born chanteuse named Bette Midler would wow the connoisseurs of outrageousness at New York’s gay bathhouses. And now, a decade since her last tour, she’s back on stage, leading a chorus line of mermaids in motorized wheelchairs flipping their tails to “New York, New York.” Last month she played Washington–the city that, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, is virtually the last bastion of literal-mindedness left in the world. Last week she opened in New York, and by the time her “Experience the Divine” tour leaves on Oct. 23, the cognoscenti who are in on the joke will have filled the 5,874 seats of Radio City 30 times over (the longest stretch of sold-out shows in Radio City history)–and then headed home, happily buckled into their Volvos, to the sophisticated precincts of Long Island, New Jersey, or, in my case, Brooklyn.

Jenifer Lewis :: No shame in her game
by Jim Halterman
Thursday Feb 25, 2010
Whether sheâ€™s playing one of her many mother roles in films like Whatâ€™s Love Got To Do With It, The Preacherâ€™s Wife and Tyler Perryâ€™s Meet The Browns, a lesbian judge in the short-lived CBS series Courthouse, or animated in films like Shark Tale, Cars and the recent Princess and the Frog, Jenifer Lewis says she always gives 2000 percent. The powerful talent that is Le Lewis can masterfully act, sing and talk about her life in film, television or on the stage but one consistent result is that audiences always come out of a Jenifer Lewis performance with the same message – that Lewis is an entertainer in the truest sense of the word and you are guaranteed to feel deeply, laugh more than a little bit as well as undoubtedly feel inspired.
