Remember Bette Was A Donor In Cleaning The “Statue of David”

0000318569-001.jpg

Mister D: Bathhouse Lisa thought I should do a follow-up to the restoration of the Statue of David which Bette donated to last year. With Bette being in Italy, hopefully she’ll drop by to see the good work she contributed to. Here is the link to the original article where Bette was shown to be a donor, followed by the article on the unveiling: Bette, Among Others, Helps Preserve Florence, Italy’s Heritage

Worth Repeating: Teach Your Children Well

Bette Midler, who’s costarring in “The Stepford Wives,” has a 16-year-old daughter. Midler reports she’s incensed by the way the media panders to young people.

“The thing that I think is really unfair is that the advertisers and the media see the kids younger and younger as a source of revenue,” she says.

“They don’t really care. It’s that thing where you have to protect your children has really gone out the window and I really, really resent it. I’m really, really sorry that people don’t make more of a fuss about it. Something has happened in the last 20 years. People are so chic. They used to march. People used to scream and they don’t do it anymore. I guess that they’re so busy trying to pay off their credit cards that they don’t take an active part in it. Maybe they say, `I’m just one person. What difference can I make?’ But I really think that it’s offensive and I think that it’s unfair to the children because their childhood is basically cut off. After you’ve seen so much sexuality, they’re sexual at 8 and 9 and 7. You see little girls bumping and grinding in their bikinis and it’s appalling because childhood is the best part of your life. It’s the part that’s the funniest. It’s the part that you remember the best and if you’re grown up by the time that you’re 8, what do you have to look forward to?”

Time To Catch Up!

Now that Bette is on vacation…maybe I can take one. This gives everyone a chance to catch up on all things Bette.

I would suggest checking out Darrell Redmond’s Bette on the Boards. Darrell has opened up the vaults in his Song of the Week Archives for your listening pleasure. And you don’t want to miss some of these classic performances by Bette.

This should keep your day bright…

Much love, Mister D

Some Pics In The “Scrapbook For BetteHeads” (Thanks Jamie)

I’ve put in some pics that fellow Bettehead Jamie sent me from the Spring Gala Bette held for the christening of her new BoatHouse. You’ll see a pic of Jamie with Bette and one with Jamie’s husband, Niall with Martin. I’ve thrown in some professional pics, too:

The Boathouse Christening

Also, Jamie sent in a few “behind the scenes” photos when she went to see the Stepford Wive’s cast on The View:

So, many thanks to Jamie for sharing this with all of us…. Read More

trailer10.jpg

(Thanks for the pic Sara)

Mister D: As predicted, Michael Moore’s incendiary ode to the Bush administration broke records and made history becoming the highest grossing documentary in history. Seems to have stoked the curiosoty od the left, right, and in-between. No matter what you think of Mr. Moore, he’s given something for people to talk and think about…

The Stepford Wives rounds out the Top 10, with total gross estimate most likely aroud 49 million to date…let’s keep word of mouth going on this one…take your friends and relatives,,,,it ain’t over yet..:-) Read More

Ever Wonder, Hmm…Where Did Bette Celebrate Her 30th?” (For Chef Bev)

Philadelphia Restaurant Trends – June 2004
By John Fischer

Astral Plane (Their Website)

This 31-year-old restaurant in an historic townhouse was chosen as the spot for Bette Midler’s 30th birthday party. The dramatic setting includes flowing fabric on the ceilings, mismatched china and silverware and pictures of film stars on the walls. Executive Chef Rodolfo Ramirez uses the freshest locally grown ingredients in his contemporary American cuisine. 1708 Lombard Street

If you go, tell them Mister D sent you…LOL Read More

Going Into The Weekend The Box Office Was As Follows

Mister D: Stepford Wives actually moved up a notch during the week, but look for some heavy competition going into this weekend with another comedy, “White Chicks” and Micheal Moore’s “valentine” to President Bush. (Tongue firmly planted within my cheek) Thanks to the neocon noise machine and spinmeisters (being silent may have helped their cause, but ranting, spinning, and/or lying is their oxygen, so they can’t help themselves, I suppose), “ultra-lefty” Moore may actually make history here opening at Number One…and here’s a “just in”…according to Box Office Mojo…Friday talleys are in with Moore in first, White Chicks in second, and SW in a 3 way for 10th….but we’ve got 2 more days to go… Read More
