Inside Bette Midler, who made her reputation as the brash, tough, bigger-than-life Divine Miss M, is “a vulnerable little person,” who is hurt by derogatory references to her appearance, the star revealed.

“I hate it when they call me ugly when they say I’m homely,” the orange-haired entertainer told a reporter for the current issue of Redbook magazine, confiding that she has considered having a nose job.

“But what’s the diff?” Ms. Midler observed. “It’s only the shell. I can’t have plastic surgery on my heart.” Read More

The crowds who flocked to theaters this past weekend to make Ocean’s 8 the number one movie in America probably left with two thoughts in mind: 1) Wow, Anne Hathaway is G.O.A.T., and we’re lucky to have her. No slander for our Oscar-winning queen; 2) Can’t wait til this gang gets back together. The Ocean’s films, of which the all-female iteration is both a sequel and a reboot, excel at one of the greatest tropes in all entertainment: the ragtag gang of old friends and newcomers who combine their skills for one so-crazy-it-just-might-work mission. Sometimes participants are lured in with the promise that this is “one last mission,” which—let’s be honest—it never is. Sometimes the draw is the promise of wealth; sometimes it’s a devil’s bargain as repayment for a past crime; sometimes it’s all in service of an old friend who could really use the specific skills of a disparate group who somehow found their way into each other’s lives. Sometimes is a highly mobile pair of pants. Read More

Bette Midler & Others Lend Support – Everything You Need to Know About the March for Our Lives

The Cut
Everything You Need to Know About the March for Our Lives
By Madeleine Aggeler
MARCH 19, 2018

Less than a week after a gunman killed 14 students and three staff at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, survivors of the shooting have mobilized to launch the #NeverAgain movement, and the March for Our Lives, a nationwide protest on March 24 to protest gun violence.

“Not one more,” the March’s Mission Statement reads. “We cannot allow one more child to be shot at school. We cannot allow one more teacher to make a choice to jump in front of a firing assault rifle to save the lives of students. We cannot allow one more family to wait for a call or text that never comes. Our schools are unsafe. Our children and teachers are dying. We must make it our top priority to save these lives.” Read More

BetteBack June 13, 1975: The Divine Miss “M” scores personal success on Broadway

Mister D: It’s so funny to read these old articles to be reminded of how edgy and out there Miss M was. It seemed like everybody was afraid of her, I remember Linda Ronstadt saying Bette opened the door for women singers to be looser on stage and Ms Ronstadt also claimed that Bette showed you don’t have to stand still at the microphone to sing, Bette was all over the place.

BetteBack May 14, 1975: ‘Clams’ Does Nothing But Entertain

“Clams on the Half Shell,” Minskoff Theatre — The Divine Miss M (Bette Midler) in her new self-styped “taste-free” revue does nothing but ENTERTAIN. The show opens with a very well executed overture consisting of a medley from “Oklahoma!” An all-black chorus sings “Old Man River” while pulling in fish nets which dredge up a huge clam shell in which Miss M. is ensconced.

Hence the revue’s name.

FROM THAT moment on, she is in complete control — singing, dancing, chatting with the audience and telling jokes. (“McDonald’s is featuring a new Hearstburger — no Patty.” or “I know what a bisexual is, but what’s a bicentennial?” Read More

NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More
