Back in the ’70s and ’80s, Bette Midler and Barry Manilow owned the NYC Bath House scene and were the best of friends. Then a few years ago, we stopped seeing them together. Turns out they are no longer talking to each other. The sacrilege.
The Divine Miss M revealed to Willie Geist on Today yesterday he hasn’t been the wind beneath her wings for over a decade. What happened? They were working on a Peggy Lee tribute album and the arrangement didn’t work for her. Without Manilow’s, who was sick and didn’t tell her, knowledge, she reworked it. She says he got mad at her and hasn’t spoken to her since.
Someone needs to get them together ASAP and end this feud we didn’t know about. Jimmy Fallon this seems right up your alley, so make it happen. Peace cannot be achieved until they are friends again.
It is has been 23 years since we saw Bette Midler as Winifred and this weekend she brought back her Hocus Pocus character for one night only. Hopefully, we will see it again because there have been rumors this beloved classic will someday soon get a sequel. By the looks of it, she is ready to play that part again and we are ready to see in the role again with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.
Before Bette Midler was playing to packed crowds in theaters like Radio City Musical Hall, she was playing bath houses like Continental Bath in New York. Even when she was 25 back in 1970, she knew how to work the crowd.
Bette Midler and Kim Kardashian have been in a Twitter war over the nude Selfie the latter posted on Sunday.
Well after getting a lot publicity over their spat, The Divine Miss M decided to use it for some good. She stripped down to black underwear and held up a cardboard sign that reads, “Like Kim…Put your Selfie to work for a good cause! Join me www.Crowdrise.com #StagesForSuccess.”
Her charity helps to modernize out of date public school auditoriums, so that they students can have a place to perform and enjoy the arts. For every dollar you donate, she is matching it 2X.
Finally, something good came out of that nude Selfie. That and we found that Midler has a rose of an a$$! Much better than the person who started it all, and Bette is 70 years young.
Tenacious D were holding their annual Festival Supreme when Amy Poehler joined them on stage. She didn’t tell any jokes or do any bits, instead she sang a song. Not just any song, Bette Midler’s timeless ballad The Rose. I never thought I would say this, but I think her version might even be better than the original. Weren’t you blown away by her?
