Video: Bette Midler – I Look Good! – Diva Las Vegas

Mister D: I’m trying some new things FB is offering (Oy!) One thing is there is a poll at the end of the video where you rate it. I did it on the fly, so if you have some ideas of how to name the options, make a comment. I’d like to see which vids are like the best so I can show them more. Once the video starts, hover your pointer over the video and a symbol will come up that let’s you vote at anytime. That only works if you enlarge the video, otherwise the poll should come up at the end. If you’ve never seen the vid before, wait til the end to vote. Or this might just not work…lol….of course, it’s me, Don, Mister D, The Gay Pundit Read More

Bette Midler can be aeen on the small screen in the HBO concert special ‘Diva Las Vegas‘ by anyone with cable TV – except her 10-year-old daughter Sophie.

The singer-actress maintains a strict TV ban at home, she says in the Jan. 25 TV Guide.

“I won’t allow It,” Midler said. “I made a pact with myself a long time ago. Never watch anything stupider than you. It’s helped me a lot.”

‘Diva Las Vegas,’ which premiered on HBO Saturday, isn’t the only TV show about her mom that little Sophie seems destined to miss. Midler, 50, has a movie musical project in the works for NBC. Read More

BetteBack January 23, 1997: Tom Shales – Diva Las Vegas

WASHINGTON — A dazzling tour de force of monumental proportions!

And that was just the first 15 minutes! “Bette Midler: Diva Las Vegas,” Midler’s latest TV special, proved indisputably that there’s plenty of life in the old girl yet. We should all have as much.

The lavishly ballyhooed concert, which premiered on HBO last Saturday night, earned all the ballyhoo and certainly stinted nary a whit on lavishness. Midler was in great voice, great face and great form. The balance of new material and old standbys seemed ideal, as did the ratio of music to comedy. Read More

BetteBack January 18, 1997: It’s A Fabulous Body. I Don’t Want To See It Disintegrate

“There is no square inch of my body that doesn’t require intense maintenance. And it’s a bloody bore. But it’s a fabulous body, and I don’t want to see it disintegrate. I mean, if you have a beautiful car, don’t you keep up your beautiful car? If you have a beautiful home, don’t you keep up your beautiful home? I do “

That’s the genuinely Divine Miss M, Bette Midler, talking to next week’s TV Guide. And let me assure you, Bette really is in top shape. I know this for a fact, because I willingly flew across the country to see Bette tape her HBO special in Las Vegas. Read More

BetteBack January 17, 1997: Miss M is Divine in Las Vegas

That Bette Midler!

One minute, she gets down and dirty in a bawdy burlesque number, next, she spouts obscenity-spiked jokes, then she blossoms into a glamorous diva belting out spine-tingling ballads.

All sides of the Divine One’s stage persona can be seen in “Diva Las Vegas,” a two-hour concert airing Saturday on HBO.

It’s definitely not the frumpy Bette you saw in “The First Wives Club.”

She’s a slimmed-down, outright babe, and she won’t let you forget it. Her second song is “I Look Good,” and she repeatedly asks the audience, “Don’t I look good?” as she struts across the stage in strappy black wheels, skin-tight black pants and a glittering
black top beneath a mop of blond ringlets. Read More

BetteBack January 14, 1997: Bette Midler says weights, treadmill trimmed her down

Dieting had nothing to do with the svelte body Bette Midler is sporting these days.

“Exercise is the only thing that really counts in getting the body in shape,” she said at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Hotel after the taping of her Saturday HBO concert special. ” I work out an hour a day — 30 minutes with weights, 30 minutes on the treadmill. It’s the weights that really do it.”

During the taping of the show before a crowd of some 15,000, she kept asking, “Don’t I look great?” And the audience kept roaring its approval. She ended up receiving nearly a dozen standing ovations as she sizzled her way through one sensational number after another. Read More

BetteBack January 12, 1997: ‘Diva Las Vegas’ is simply divine

She’s concentrated more on movies and recordings than on live performances lately, but to her fans, she’s remained “Divine.”

Following one of her biggest movie hits ever — “The First Wives Club” — Bette Midler returns to the stage in the variety show “Diva Las Vegas,” airing Saturday on HBO. The show was taped the previous weekend at the MGM Grand.

The program features Grammy, Tony and Emmy-winner Midler’s trademark brand of bawdy humor, as well as elaborately choreographed versions of song standards. The Midler hits “Friends” and “Wind Beneath My Wings” also are likely to be rendered in what is the first full-length Midler concert to be presented on TV in more than a decade. Read More
