Bette Midler On Motherhood: â€œEvery mother wants to be remembered and I want my daughter to remember me. I read to her and play with her every chance I get. She doesnâ€™t like me to sing to her, but she loves it when I do pratfalls. She adores the â€˜Hocus Pocusâ€™ character, and I do it for her at least once a day. She is such a source of joy to me. Having a child is the best thing I ever didâ€ (Beaver County Times â€“ Apr 9, 1997)

Bette Midler On Hollywood And Movies: â€œMy take on the world is so peculiar and so odd that Hollywood writers and directors didnâ€™t know what to do with me. And there were too many of them to bang all their heads together to try and change themâ€ (Beaver County Times â€“ Apr 9, 1997)

In a cockeyed channel-surfing world, the memorable TV moments multiply.
Cable is everywhere. Fiber optic is coming. We now inhabit an incredibly fragmented TV landscape.
So it’s tough to get a consensus on unforgettable. Increasingly, all TV memories are personal.
You, for instance, might fixate on scaring televised memories of last spring’s Branch Davidian conflagration in Waco. The merry pranksterÂ next to you, however, may prefer to obsess about the time Beavis and Butt-head licked a frog to get high.
As conversation continues to swirl around Leonardo DiCaprioâ€™s under-appreciated thespianism, Bette Midler has issued a pointed reminder about the Academy Awardsâ€™ continual failure to recognize black actors of equal mettle.
â€œThe Oscars are today!â€ the multi-hyphenate performer tweeted Sunday. â€œYou know, the awards show where Leonardo DiCaprio is â€˜overdueâ€™ but black people can â€˜wait till next year.â€™â€

â€œThey cut the list in half,â€ explained a guest who added that there were 400 VIPs who made the cut this year. As Diller made the rounds barefoot in Bermuda shorts, Hollywood execs, stars, directors and â€œthe young Euro setâ€ mixed at the afternoon event, which this year honored Vanity Fairâ€™s Graydon Carter.

The museum says the gowns were bought for the museum by Midler, “a patron whose historical and theatrical conscience provided the incentive for the purchase at auction.”
Anderson, renowned African American singer, wore the garments at concerts from the 1930s through the early 1950s. The museum says of them: “Spanning three decades and evidencing a preference for gilt lame, their sumptuous simplicity echoes the timeless perfection and richnessÂ of Miss Anderson’s contralto (regarded by many as the voice of the century).”
