Another belle unhappy about her debut into films is Bette Midler (“the divine Miss Midler”). Her managers are just as unhappy. Seems that before Bette became so divine she accepted a role in “The Divine Mr J.” a low budget flick for which she received an equally low budget
Now â€œ The Divine Mr J ” is on the verge of immediate release and look what’s happened to Bette in the meantime. She and managers are negotiating movie deals calling for whopping amounts of money and they are thoroughly convinced that the less than â€œ Divine Mr J ” isn tÂ going to help their cause.
