*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

Story Behind The Photo! By Ray Cooper – Search For A Rare Personal Photo Circa 1971

Story Behind The Photo! By Ray Cooper
January 26, 2018

This photo means so much to me for many reasons and this is how it happened to be!!!

I had met Bette a couple of times in NYC and when she came to Detroit (Windsor) for a two week engagement at the Top Hat Club in Windsor , Ont. Canada in l97l, I knew I had to go see her there.

She came alone, no Barry and Aaron was not her manager at the time.

She did have a booking agent, but no one came with her to Detroit.

Many people knew her in NYC, from being in Fiddler and at the baths, plus at a club here or there, like The Bitter End, Up The Downstairs, but other than in NYC at the time her only claim to fame nationally was appearing on talk shows, Merv Griffin, David Frost and the biggest, The Tonight Show, but she did not have an album out even then.

BetteBack January 23, 1975: Does Bette Midler’s career appear to be going downhill?

Does Bette Midler’s career appear to be going downhill?

YES. Bette Midler has been getting poor management. Events like that bad reception at Johnny Carson’s Friar’s Roast need never have happened.

Bette Midler’s ‘Hello, Dolly!’ crew got sick backstage

At the first preview of “Hello, Dolly!” fans were kvelling and Bette Midler received four standing ovations — but backstage members of the production got a sickness bug, and rumors spread along the Great White Way that the cast had come down with food poisoning.

“There was buzz that people in the cast were sickened by some cookies brought backstage by the show’s David Hyde Pierce,” said a theater source, who added, “Half the cast were throwing up offstage and running to the bathroom whenever they weren’t onstage.” Read More

BetteBack October 1, 1973: Flashy, Trashy and Infectious Miss M.

San Mateo Times
October 1, 1973

2016-08-26_6-36-55

In this crazy rock ‘n roll world where superstars streak into prominence with the alacrity of unnatural phenomena and instantly develop a cult following that worships with unquestioning fervor, Bette Midler is being acclaimed the High Priestess of Camp.

She makes the kookiness of early career Barbra Streisand look pristine, the grossness and vulgarity of Belle Earth and Sophie Tucker seem tame and the frenzied on-stage antics of Janis Joplin and Jerry Lewis appear understated. It was only her third appearance in the Bay Area and her four night stint at Berkeley Community Theater was a solid sellout. Read More
