â€œThe Ruby Wax Showâ€ has a distinctly British feel. Itâ€™s a lark, as Wax compares breasts with Pamela Anderson Lee, climbs into bed with Goldie Hawn and goes shopping with Bette Midler. But the thing that makes it work â€” both here and abroad â€” is Waxâ€™s Midwestern straightforwardness, which must seem as exotic to U.K.viewers as â€œCrackerâ€ is to us.
Wax holds up one of Leeâ€™s skimpy T-shirts and says with disbelief, â€œNow, you donâ€™t have a 4-year-old child. This is for your body.â€ She discusses childbirth with Hawn, saying, â€œI never forgave my children for not knowing where the exit was.â€ She compares struggling actor jobs with Midler and talks about being a waitress at the Evanston Holiday Inn.
Bette Midler On The Box Office Failure Of For The Boys: â€œThe public was completely ready for it, they just didnâ€™t come to see it. They had other things to do! They were barbecuing that weekend. â€¦ They couldnâ€™t get away.â€ (1993)

It is no news to most people that Bette Midler, the five-foot-high selfannounced queen of the truly tacky people, has come out with herÂ second album. What may surprise those people who are not followers of the Divine Miss M though, is how fine this album really is.
Last year when Bette came to Dallas in concert, not many straights had heard about her. The audience looked at least 50 per cent gay andÂ at least 35 per cent more camp. A person committed a definite faux pas if he arrived in jeans.
Bette Midler On Moving Past For The Boys To Hocus Pocus: â€œIâ€™m not disappointed anymore. Because, you know, I saw my box-office grosses, and Iâ€™m just swimming along. Yes, I have a new hit â€” so fâ€” the past! I donâ€™t have to think about For The Boys anymore, so there!â€ (1993)

This is Hulaween: Bette Midler Hosts Her 21st Annual Bash in New York City
OCTOBER 30, 2016 7:31 PM
by MARIA WARD
The ultimate Halloween revival has already happened.Â On Friday night, Bette Midler hosted her 21st annual Hulaween bash in New York, and suffice it to say, the gathering set the bar well in advance of the official holiday proceedings. The legendary EGOT-winning actress arrived to the (supposedly haunted) Waldorf Astoria wearing the most bewitching of party garb in an ode to her character, Winifred Sanderson, from 1993â€™s Hocus Pocus. â€œDonâ€™t tell her itâ€™s my idea, but we need Hocus Pocus 2,â€ joked Kathy Griffin. The Mistress of Ceremonies was dressed in a decidedly couture take on the Snapchat deer filter costume. â€œWhatâ€™s funny is, Iâ€™m in Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, a Dolce & Gabbana tux, and a cardboard cutout of a Snapchat filter,â€ Griffin said. â€œBut for Bette, itâ€™s a small price to pay.â€Â

Bette Midler interview: ‘I was the biggest coward in the world’
By Paul Sexton

The Grammy-winning singer and actress tells Paul Sexton about her accidental, taboo-busting journey from Hawaii to Hollywood
Itâ€™s hard to believe that Bette Midler isnâ€™t a native New Yorker. She manages to combine a chutzpah and a Manhattan-style savviness that not everyone born to a seamstress and a house painter in Honolulu could manage.
But the entertainer has been living in the city for more than 50 years and her intimate relationship with its cultural evolution is once again in sharp relief, thanks to a new production of Hello, Dolly! on Broadway and a remastering of The Divine Miss M, the 1972 album which made her name.
