Bette Midler, Elton John, Cher, Bob Mackie, and Flip Wilson

You could dine out for a lifetime on Bob Mackie’s stories. After 60 years of designing sequin-encrusted stage costumes for Cher, Bette Midler, and Diana Ross, to name a few, the 79-year-old has anecdotes to spare. He sprinkles them into the conversation like glitter.

He once dressed Elton John as Donald Duck, complete with tail and webbed feet, making it very difficult for the Rocket Man to play the piano. He worked with Tina Turner during her post-Ike transformation, when “she wanted to look like a sexy cave woman”. Barbra Streisand, he says, “was always questioning everything. ‘Does this really look good? Can we try on three or four, then decide?’ With that kind of sensibility, you work harder, believe me.” Read More

28 stars who are just one trophy away from the most coveted award in Hollywood

Bette Midler

*The EGOT is the most coveted award in Hollywood.
*Stars earn the EGOT by winning an Emmy, Grammy, Tony, and an Oscar.
*To date, only 12 individuals make the list of EGOT winners.

Most performers would be thrilled to take home even one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, orTony, but earning all four over the course of a career is the ultimate achievement. To date, only 12 individuals — Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno, Whoopi Goldberg, Mel Brooks, Scott Rudin, Richard Rodgers, Helen Hayes, John Gielgud, Marvin Hamlisch, Jonathan Tunick, Mike Nichols, and Robert Lopez — have completed an EGOT by winning all four awards in competitive categories. But there are many more, including these 28 celebs, who are just one trophy away from the honor. Read More

One of the most coveted achievements in the world of entertainment is the EGOT. Some talented artists have received it, but what about the stars who are super close to receiving an EGOT? What even is an EGOT?

In case you’re confused, EGOT stands for Emmy, Oscar, Grammy, and Tony. Getting just one of these awards is a tremendous achievement. Getting all of them is nearly impossible. Less than 20 people have received all four awards, but greats like Whoopi Goldberg, Audrey Hepburn, and Mel Brooks have been awarded accordingly. Read More

This Is So Why I Love Bitchy Queen Forums! Call Me A Homophobe! I Ain’t Scared Of No ‘MO’ (Mister D Is Saying This)

From Deadhorseinterchange.net
July 19, 2018

Mister D: Hey! There’s a reason we have stereotypes and cliches, because they are so abundantly around us. I love it. It makes the world a colorful place. When you try to quash these characteristics, you really don’t know what you’re going to create. In the case of gays, it turned out to be guys with great bods who still acted like girls. LOL I didn’t say that. I never said that. Just so this doesn’t get attributed to Ms. Midler, this is Don who has nothing to do with Miss Midler. So if you’re going to attack, attack me! Read More
