The One That Got Away: Bette Midler Hosted “Seriously Sinatra” Feb 19, On Sirius XM Radio – More Info In Article

Mister D: While I was away,sick, Bette Midler slipped out of her elegant loft to host Seriously Sinatra on Sirius XM. Not sure how long it lasted, I’ll say an hour, but I did hear bits of it this morning. It’s On Demand right now.

If you don’t have Sirius XM, you can sign up for a 30 day free try and listen to it. Not sure how long it will be up, Also I found the site hard to maneuver. After you register, just look for the damn search box and type Bette Midler in it. The show should come up. Then I think you should click On Demand, then click on her show. My dearest foreigners, I don’t think it will work for you, but Ill try to make it up to you.

Bette’s Top Brass And Bootleg Betty Close Down Two Fake Bette Midler Twitter Sites | BootLeg Betty

This past week Bootleg Betty, in cooperation with Bette Midler’s top brass, closed down two fake Bette Midler accounts. They were mirror images of Bette’s official Twitter site. It’s not like they were being malicious, but they were liking people’s posts, who if they didn’t look close enough, making them think Miss M liked or endorsed what they were saying.

We’ve exposed corruption before, whether intentional or not, and you can bet we will always be on the lookout. If you are fans of Bette Midler, why would you do this? What do you get out of it? Did you think you were going to meet Ms. Midler going this route? I wish I could answer those questions, but I can’t, Maybe I’m asking the wrong questions, Anyway, we will always find you and close you down. Read More
