And so, back to the glorious salt mine of celebrity for 1982 Isn’t it all thrilling?

YOU KNOW, of course, the divine Miss M — Bette Midler — and her co-star Ken Wahl area Don’t Invitem. How could they be anything else since the tempestuous making of the United Artists moyie “Jinxed,” in which Bette is said easily to have outstripped Barbra Streisand in her demanding perfectionist attitudes? (Well what’s wrong with that?!)

Ken went away from the film saying that kissing his co-star was impossible unless he made believe she was his dog. Now, her lawyer sent a letter ‘Ken’s way, advising him not to “badmouth” her anymore in interviews on pain of something or other.

Ken, predicted for superstardom ever since “The Wanderers” and “Fort Apache – the Bronx,” is said to have grinned and quipped: “Don’t make me laugh, my lips are chapped.”
