A Post From Mister D About Bootleg Betty – Please Read

I’m Still Here Dammit! – Mister D

Bette Midler Headshot at Microphone - A Post From Mister D About Bootleg Betty - Please Read

Hi Betteheads!

My name is Don or Mister D (for the old-timers). I’ve been running this site, Bootleg Betty, almost daily since October 9, 2002, and I feel I still have so much to do. I’d like to thank Nicola for taking the reigns of the Facebook Page. It’s good to know that there’s always something going on.

Anyway, I just wanted to apologize for going AWOL for awhile. I think I’ve only done that once before. No, I/m not going to slow it down. No, I’m not ready to retire, although it may be I might want to start looking for help to finish this project before I die. It’s just gotten too big for one person to undertake. Personally, I don’t think it will ever be finished. There’s so many things missing and you can always find more information than you thought, plus new ideas pop in your head constantly. Well, maybe not for you LOL, but it does for me. Read More

Old #FLOTITS! I’m Laughing Bette Midler – This Reminds Me Of The Good Old Days And The Past 50 Years You’ve Been Talking About Tits!

Bette Midler slammed for calling Melania Trump ‘FLOTITS’

Mister D: Personally, I’ve been keeping myself out of the fray as far as name-calling. In fact, I’ve been doubling down on the Democrats, because they have to get better. We cannot afford  to keep revoting the same people in who are not working for us, but the 1%. They are both corrupt and evil parties in their own way. We need desperately to get corporate money out and let campaigns become grassroots like they used to be. Almost every politician is a sell out and that includes Obama and Hillary.

But what kills me is all the name-calling from each side who think they have the moral high ground. And frankly, neither party does. Everything has been exposed since Trump ran and got into office. Presidents, First Ladies, GOP, DNC, MSM. It truly is a goldmine of farce and propaganda. Some of us are really waking up, but it’s taking the masses quite awhile to catch up. You don’t have to be intelligent to see it, you just have to be open and aware. It’s like Bernie Sanders said, research everything, even what I say. You do that, then watch TV news and you’ll see how much of the truth is edited out by all. Read More

Bette Midler's in love with 'Hocus Pocus' all over again

Bette Midler gave herself an early Halloween treat this year: She rewatched “Hocus Pocus,” the kid-oriented dark comedy and cult classic that just turned 25 and starred the Divine Miss M as the leader of a trio of witches.

“The first time I watched it I was only watching myself. But this time I saw everybody,” she told People on Monday night at her annual Hulaween party in New York City, where the theme was “Hulaween in the Cosmos.” 

“And I tell ya, those girls in the back — they were going full blast! They were giving me a run for my money. The kids were great, everybody was great! Read More
