Dieting had nothing to do with the svelte body Bette Midler is sporting these days.
“Exercise is the only thing that really counts in getting the body in shape,” she said at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Hotel after the taping of her Saturday HBO concert special. ” I work out an hour a day â€” 30 minutes with weights, 30 minutes on the treadmill. It’s the weights that really do it.”
During the taping of the show before a crowd of some 15,000, she kept asking, “Don’t I look great?” And the audience kept roaring its approval. She ended up receiving nearly a dozen standing ovations as she sizzled her way through one sensational number after another.

The program features Midler‘s trademark brand of bawdy humor, as well as elaborately chorcgraphed versions of song standards, along with renditions of tunes such as “Friends” and “Wind Beneath My Wings,” and it shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear Midler croon “YouÂ Don’t Own Me,” which she rendered with fellow stars Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton in her most recent big-screen success.

When it comes to having his finger on the pulse of the public, Scott Rudin seems to have movie-goers right in the palm of his hand.
The hugely successful producer, whose hits include “The Firm,” “Clueless.” The Addams Family” and “Sister Act,” personally gathered
Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn for “The First Wives Club” and convinced the trio that they’d be box-office dynamite together. The PG-rated comedy, about three middle-aged women getting even on the husbands who dumped them, has already soared by the $50 million mark and will more than double that amount before leaving theaters.

“First Wives,” first week, first place.
Paramount’s “The First Wives Club” earned an estimated $19 million in its opening weekend for the biggest September debut ever, industry and studio sources said Sunday.
The comedy, starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton as discarded spouses bent on revenge, nearly tripled the $7.1 million take of “Last Man Standing,” starring Bruce Willis, the weekend’s other big debut film, which placed second. The other top 10 films based on preliminary estimates: “Fly Away Home,” $3.8 million. “Maximum Risk,” $3 million. “Bulletproof,” $2.4 million. “First Kid,” $2.3 million. “Tin Cup,” $1.8 million. “A Time to Kill,” and “The Rich Man’s Wife,” tied at $1.6 million. “Independence Day,” $1.5 million.

Just when we were getting used to the idea of Diane Keaton as a director, here she comes roaring back as an actor. Before the year ends, she’ll be seen opposite Meryl Streep, Hume Cronyn and Robert De Niro in “Marvin’s Room.” And on Friday, she got mad – then got even – as one of three discarded wives in “The First Wives Club,” opposite Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler.

BetteBack September 21, 1996: A MEMBER OF THE CLUB, AND LOVING IT – An Interview With Olivia Goldsmith
Olivia Goldsmith has a guilty pleasure. It doesn’t involve hanging out on Hollywood movie sets schmoozing with such stars as Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler, though she has done her fair share of exactly that.
What it does involve is the down-and-dirty pursuit of sitting in coffee shops and people-watching. It’s all a part of the benefits she’s reaping from the blood, sweat and (she assures) tears that went into writing her hugely successful first novel, “The First Wives Club.”
