Has success spoiled Bette Midler? According to the grapevine, it has. The “ devine” Miss Midler is fast becoming the female counterpart of ELVIS PRESLEY. I’m told she’s equally as difficult to reach.

Bette Midler On Martin: “My husband’s a great guy. He has an artist’s soul, ability and drive. He’s working on his first feature film, and yes, I could have a part in it but I don’t know if I want it. He accepts my help when I give it to him, but he doesn Read More

Bette Midler On Playing Gypsy Her Way:

Bette Midler On Playing Gypsy Her Way: “I always thought Ethel was funny. I thought I was doing a musical comedy. Then it turned out I was really in a drama with music. But by that time it was too late. “But I brought a lot of rage to the back end of it because I understand all that stuff, too, all that rejection, and I wanted that stuff to be very powerful — even electrifying.” (1993)

7 Life Lessons From ‘The First Wives Club’ You Should Know

The Huffington Post
7 Life Lessons From ‘The First Wives Club’ You Should Know
For Vogue, by Brooke Bobb.

The year was 1996 and the women were Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn, and Diane Keaton. The song was Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.” The movie was an epic ode to female empowerment, and it was called The First Wives Club. Today marks 20 years since its release, and the film’s sarcastic, brilliantly colorful feminist undertones couldn’t be more on point. After being jolted and cheated on, Brenda (Midler), Annie (Keaton), and Elise (Hawn) band together to form a coalition in order to seek justice from their egotistical, manipulative dogs of ex-husbands. It’s irreverent and oh so true, and even if you aren’t a die-hard Gloria Steinem devotee—she even has a cameo in the film—any woman can appreciate the First Wives Club “hear me roar” campaign. Really, you’re not alone if you’ve secretly danced and sung along with the ladies at the end: “And don’t tell me what to do! / And don’t tell me what to say!” Read More

On The Ethel Merman Legacy Of Gypsy:

Bette Midler On The Ethel Merman Legacy Of Gypsy: ” I felt the ghost of Ethel was definitely hovering over me. And I didn’t want to listen to it because I didn’t want to be affected by that voice when I was making my own way through the songs. Still, I did feel her performance was one of those performances that are considered legendary. . . .” (1993)
