Mister D: I’ll be honest and say I’m flummoxed as to what to say here. I could never say something about the dead like this. I have never had anything that made me hate someone even if they did something heinous to me. I always think somebody raised them and taught them that these bad behaviors were somehow some strength. And I must say that I have been in some unspeakable positions where I just wanted to die, but I never could hate. But I’m more of the exception to the rule. So I feel I’m the odd man out. Now with Bette, compared to the familiar public, she probably knew more about the situation and what went on. She traveled somewhat in the same circles as Michael and Janet, and of course, with Quincy Jones. I don’t know if most people know this, but Bette was one, if not the first one, to be called about the We Are The World project (why no solo spot, Quincy?) plus he helped out with getting the sound right for her Vegas gig. She mentioned Quincy in her tweet, so that tells me they know more than what the general public knows. Does that make her right or wrong for calling it out? I think it’s a personal choice. She seemed to want to make a statement, and she very well did, and it looks like she’s not backing down. And I’ve always admired that quality in people. Well, some people. I think I’m more of a case by case kind of guy. And yes, I have taken the side of a Republican or two. I’m fair.

Bette Midler accused of homophobia after Trump and Putin joke. Was It? Was It Not? Who Cares? Who Doesn’t?
Mister D: No. I don’t think it was homophobic, but is it crossing the line as being crass? That’s what every individual will have to decide. Now during the height of that fake Russian scandal, gays and straights of every PFlag member were making memes of Putin and Trump in a sordid affair with one another. I think. Finally, some upper echelon gays started thinking, uh-oh, we’re practicing what we continuously preach against, and it slowed down, but kind of never went away because of who the subject was. I mean what better way to get back at him by making him in a gay relationship. I don’t think it’s homophobic, but I do think it’s being used against a man who is supposed as repulsed by gays as Hillary Clinton is. Bette wasn’t making fun of the homo crowd; she was trying to get a laugh out of making Trump uncomfortable. But I’m so secure in myself as a gay man, that I don’t give a shit about any gay jokes that are told. I’m not weak enough to feel like a victim, and I can laugh it off. I believe in the Joan Rivers, George Carlin philosophy. Everything is joke worthy. Not all do. C’est la vie. We don’t need to make a parade out of everything we don’t like. Get over it. Acts of censorship are one more reason why Trump was elected. People are tired of walking on eggshells. Besides, I’ve been around gay people, and they are some of the most judgemental people I’ve ever seen. They make fun of everybody. And it’s funny! So chill out. Know who your real enemies are.

May 19, 2018

Mister D: I remember the time Pauline Kael was on Tom Snyder’s old talk show. He asked her who should win the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1979. Without pause she said Bette Midler for the Rose. She said I haven’t heard lines read like that in decades and if she doesn’t win the Oscars mean nothing. This was when critics had considerable power over what was a hit or miss in movies She was considered one of the greatest critics. Check out some books on her. Bruce Vilanch said he sat next to her in Divine Madness. She was a big Bette Midler fan before the movies. She was upset with the end product of Divine Madness because of the editing and how they ended the movie. She said a real Bette Midler concert would not end like that. It would end up with a happy, upbeat song, like “Friends” After she saw Jinxed, she was sure Hollywood would ruin the Bette we knew growing up. That’s me hearsay and gossip. IF I’m wrong Bruce, let me know. It’s been a while and I might have succumbed to the Telephone Game.

From the Back Cover
Just the Funny Parts is a juicy and scathingly funny insider look at how pop culture gets made. For more than thirty years, writer, producer, and director Nell Scovell worked behind the scenes of iconic shows, including The Simpsons, Late Night with David Letterman, Murphy Brown, NCIS, The Muppets, and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, which she created and executive produced.
Then in 2009, Scovell gave up her behind-the-scenes status when the David Letterman sex scandal broke. Only the second woman ever to write for his show, Scovell used the moment to publicly call out the lack of gender diversity in late-night TV writers’ rooms. “One of the boys” came out hard for “all of the girls.” Her criticisms fueled a cultural debate. Two years later, Scovell was collaborating with Sheryl Sandberg on speeches and later on Lean In, which resulted in a worldwide movement.
