By Jethro Nededog | August 5, 2010 7:03 PM ET

“Drop Dead Diva” isn’t having any problems booking guest stars lately. They’ve had Rosie O’Donnell, Liza Minnelli, Paula Abdul, Vivica A. Fox, and, cough, Jake Pavelka. The list goes on and on.

There is one celebrity that the show hasn’t been able to cast yet, but not without trying: Actress, singer, and current Las Vegas headliner, Bette Midler. Read More

    Rumor Alert!: Bette In A P.T. Anderson Short Film?

    Mister D: This little tidbit has been making its way around the net lately…hopefully I can confirm as soon as possible. BUT…it sounds quite interesting.
    P.T. Anderson/Elliott Smith Film to Surface in 2008?
    Jon Brion, Fiona Apple, Bette Midler, Rastafarian basketball players involved??

    Everyone loves a good mystery. Quite a few people love Elliott Smith. And quite a few people love Paul Thomas Anderson as well. So here, how about a story that rolls all three into one? Read More

    Does Bette Smoke? Say It Isn’t So!

    Mister D:

    Does Bette smoke???!!! Hopefully only out the ears when she has a right to be fuming mad! According to Times Square Gossip (gossip is the key word-take a gander at their disclaimer), she is one of the A-list customers who visits NAT SHERMAN ‘THE TABACCONIST TO THE WORLD’ NEW FLAGSHIP STORE ON NEW YORK CITY’S EAST 42ND STREET! (I don’t believe she’s a smoker for one minute!)

    We’re talking big ass names here: Bill Cosby, Will Smith, Ivana Trump, Nicolas Cage, Keanu Reeves (yummy), Princess Grace, Samuel L. Jackson. Rudy Giuliani, Harry Connick Jr., Joe Torre, Mark Consuelos and Gov. Bill Richardson are among the lucky smokers who stash their stogies in private lockers under lock & key in Sherman’s room sized humidor. Read More

    Update On “American Idol”

    I was just informed by Bette’s crew that she was not nor will be a judge on “American Idol.” I can’t confirm things over the weekends, but this story sounded like it could have legs, so I ran with it.

    Sorry if anyone got their hopes up, but I’m actually relieved she’s not doing it. The show has become much meaner than it used to be…I think mostly for declining ratings and the degenerating IQ’s of the judges. 😉

    Love, Mister D

    A “Good Guy” For Bette Midler?

    Mister D: I just found this tid-bette in an interview with Jude Johnstone who wrote “The Girl Is On To You” and sang harmony with Bette on “My Eye On You.” According to this article, Ms. Midler has recorded another one of her songs, “Good Guy” for a supposed upcoming CD.

    I had been told a CD was out of the question at this point due to the Vegas gig, but you just never know. Maybe it’s a demo she’s trying out for something later. Maybe it’s for the new movie, “Then She Found Me.” I don’t know, but I will try to find out.

    The song, “Good Guy.” is a track on Ms. Johnstone’s upcoming CD. Blue Light

    If you’d like to read the article….

    Long Time No See….Beggar’s Banquet And Rumor Squashing

    Mister D: Wow, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted. Almost six days! I have been piddling around with new pages, but I just don’t know if anyone would find them of interest.

    I’m also slowly changing pages out to make things look more consistent looking. Don’t know if this is a good idea or not, but some of the pages look so outdated. Anyway, time is the culprit. And I know what you’re saying, “But Mister D you’re unemployed, you lazy son of a bitch” (Sorry mom, it’s the BetteHeads saying that!!!! 🙂 ) Yes, that’s true, but I’m working hard to find other routes to make money thru writing and playing music. So it will be quite a journey, but I’m excited about it. I do have one article that most likely will be published if I can muster up the confidence to make the changes the editor requested. I just freeze up! Anyway, it started out as a really sad piece, but at the end it dawned on me that there was a positive. I just had not looked at it from a different perspective. Read More

    “The Women” Update On Rumor

    Mister D: As I reported a couple of posts down, there is a gaggle of female movie stars huddled up in Martha’s Vineyard getting ready to shoot the remake of the camp classic, “The Women.” For many years, this movie has been making the rounds in Hollywood with major acctresses associated with it, but they come and go. Bette’s name has been ballyed around for years with this…sometimes on the list and many times off. Currently, the status of her involvement is a rumor, but it looks like it is a possibility. Some of us know Bette is on vacation right now. Coincidence??? That Vegas gig bothers me, but supposedly the shoot for her would probably not be that long. Logistics would have to be a top priority as well. I think some of you might really get a kick out of the original which was filmed with an all-star female cast. There are absolutely no men to be seen. It’s campy, bitchy, and a little over the top. There are a couple of roles Bette would be just perfect for…especially one…you figure it out. If anyone is interested, i’ll post a link to the DVD and the book which is written in play form. Very easy to read. Let’s cross out fingers that that Bette gives the greenlight to this one…the success of it will largely depend on how well the script turns out and how they update it. With Diane English involved…well it seems like a great match of talents. However, with remakes, you are treading a fine line. Read More
