Q. Isn’t there a quiet but furious rivalry developing between Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand? We hear they really can’t stand one another. Is that true? – A. F., Scarsdale, N.Y.

A. Although Barbra and Bette have staked out similar audiences, there’s no particular rivalry between them. Bette says she’d never “dump” on Barbra and in fact thinks Barbra is prettier than she — Bette is particularly impressed with Barbra’s “gorgeous skin and beautiful hair.” Don’t know what Barbra thinks, but as far a Bette is concerned, their relationship is cordial. However, Bette’s favorite actress isn’t Streisand but Sally Field.
