Bette Midler Hosts Her ‘Hulaween’ Benefit in a (Gasp!) Cathedral

Bette and the cast of Hello Dolly!

Certain rules apply when you’re hosting a benefit at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. Cursing is not allowed. And nudity, it should go without saying, isn’t either.

But when it comes to Halloween, especially in New York, rules tend to fly out the window. And so Bishop Andrew M.L. Dietsche had to intervene Monday for Bette Midler’s annual Hulaween benefit by preventing Dita Von Teese, the burlesque star, from performing her provocative act. Read More

Bette Midler With Dita Von Teese at Hulaween

The Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, was banned by the Bishop of New York from performing at Bette Midler’s famed Hulaween Gala.

Midler had invited Von Teese to perform at this year’s Halloween costume event, which took place Monday night at The Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine on Amsterdam Avenue, in support of the New York Restoration Project.

But The Right Reverend Andrew M L Dietsche, the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, was not pleased to hear of racy Von Teese’s slated show and ordered she not be allowed to perform inside his Cathedral Church, which according to its website, is a “house of prayer for all people and a unifying center of intellectual light and leadership.” Read More

Creepy Countdown: 13 spooky Halloween films suitable for wusses

Creepy Countdown: 13 spooky Halloween films suitable for wusses
Anneka Honeyball at Southampton, University of 13th October 2017

Halloween is almost upon us, and with this joyous holiday, comes a certain expectation to engage in all things spooky. Horror films are a sure-fire way to get in the mood for October’s end of the month fear-fest, but they’re certainly not for everybody. 
For those of us who can’t stand frivolous gore or constant jumpscares; terrifying monsters or unnerving mind-fuckery, a different, less traumatising approach has to be taken. So, for all the self-confessed wusses out there, here are some wimp-friendly watches – in order of potential scariness – for you to enjoy whilst still getting in to the spooky spirit. 1. Hocus Pocus (1993)Let’s start off easy. Simply put, Hocus Pocus is far too flamboyant to be in any way scary. It is also a fabulous movie. The film follows the camp calamity that happens when a teen virgin lights a candle in a spooky old cottage, and in the process, resurrects three gloriously over the top witches, played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimi and Sarah Jessica-Parker. Thirsty for youth, the witches hatch an elaborate plan to suck the souls out of all the children in town – and only the teens, a zombie and a talking cat can stop them. Brilliant. Are there any scary bits? Aside from Bette Midler’s make up, it’s all family-friendly fun. Read More
