8 Stars Who Couldn’t Cut It as Murphy Brown’s Secretary, From JFK, Jr To Bette Midler

The Wrap
8 Stars Who Couldn’t Cut It as Murphy Brown’s Secretary
Brian Welk | May 11, 2018 @ 11:14 AM

“Murphy Brown” is returning to television on CBS for 13 episodes during the 2018-19 season — and on May 18 it will have been 20 years since its finale episode aired. While a lot has changed in media since Candice Bergen’s Brown hosted the fictional news broadcast “FYI,” one thing that hasn’t changed is how hard it is to find good help. One of the show’s longest recurring gags was how nearly every week Brown had a wacky and incompetent new secretary, everyone from a man with a Hitler mustache to a pleasant looking woman who worshiped Satan. Over 90 people sat in that assistant’s chair over the show’s 10 seasons, including some celebrity cameos, but not one of them lasted.

Marcia Wallace  Before Marcia Wallace was Edna Krabappel on “The Simpsons,” Wallace had a part on “The Bob Newhart Show” as Bob Hartley’s dynamo of a receptionist Carol Bondurant. During a special crossover episode of “Murphy Brown,” Carol proved to be Brown’s best secretary ever, a real keeper. But at the end of the episode, Bob rushes into the office and begs for Carol to come back and work for him, despite Brown’s pleading.

John Kennedy Jr. You can hear the women in the live audience swooning when it’s revealed that John John is Brown’s latest secretary. “I guess the lawyer thing didn’t work out,” Brown jokes. He wasn’t there to work, but to drop off a “wedding present” that was just a fake cover of the magazine he edited, “George.”

Kramer Murphy Brown
NBC

Kramer  When Kramer (Michael Richards) heads out to Los Angeles on an episode of “Seinfeld,” Jerry and Elaine spot him on an episode of “Murphy Brown” as another new secretary. His rapid-fire typing is hysterical, and the show even teases that she has “a good feeling” about him.

Sally Field  Murphy Brown would’ve been lucky to have fellow single-mother Norma Rae as her secretary, or better yet her “Absence of Malice” journalist Megan Carter, but instead she got Kathleen Dubek, secretary 91.

Rosie O’Donnell  The final season of “Murphy Brown” featured a cavalcade of celebrity cameos, including Rosie O’Donnell as a particularly annoying singing secretary.

Don Rickles  Rickles would’ve been in his 70s by the time he stepped into the secretary job during the show’s final season.

Bette Midler Murphy Brown
CBS

Bette Midler  In the show’s stellar finale, Bette Midler took charge as secretary Caprice Feldman. “Caprice! With two Cs, interlocking like Chanel!” Her wealthy socialite type was always told by her (dead) husband that she could never hold down a job. Well she picked one with quite the track record.

BetteBack September 29, 1998: Nathan Lane Talks Bette Midler

Nathan Lane felt instant chemistry with Bette Midler on the set of Isn’t She Great, which he shot this summer.

Midler plays Valley Of The Dolls author, Jaqueline Susann and Lane is cast as her husband, Irving Mansfield.

“You know what I call Bette?” Lane said, laughing. Feisty Spice. That’s my nickname for her. I think we were destined to work together.  We had so many laughs and she’s so funny. There were days she would kill me, she was so funny. We were like an old married couple. We were like the battling Bickersons the way we would carry on. She’s wonderful.”
