BootLeg Betty Closed For The Summer! Back Come September!

Mister D: I did put new music up in the jukebox and records section of the site, so be sure to check it out. I put it up around the 30th of June…Have a safe and sunny summer..

Hey BetteHeads!

Due to the overwhelming response, Bootleg Betty will only be closed for the summer. I appreciate all of your emails and will take heed your threats to tar and feather me if I should ever try to desert you again!

Over the next two months, I will be busy helping my brother, Woody, promote his new CD, Here To Stay (I know, I know…shameless plug!) . Read More

Which Witch Is Witch…I Mean Which????

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
6/24/2005
JOE HOLLEMAN

Who knows which witch to watch? With today’s release of “Bewitched,” the story of the nose-wiggling Samantha with Nicole Kidman in the starring role, the witch gets top billing in a high- profile summer flick.

But if “Bewitched” works its spell and you want to sample more witch movies, there’s actually not much competition in the genre. Although they have played minor roles in numerous films, witches as major characters remain somewhat of a rarity. Read More

Sad News For The Bette Community:
Experience The Divine To Close Doors August 1, 2005

Well, I found this news to be a sad note for the Bette community.

Terri, webmistress for experiencethedivine.com, Kiss-My-Brass.com, and DearBette.com, has decided that she may need to close down her sites due to “having a life” to pursue….(my phraseology) 🙂

As most of you know, Terri was one of the very first to start a Bette site, almost 7 years ago, and she has been going strong ever since, creating what I think is the ultimate in Bette sites….following Bette’s career from the beginning to the present. Terri actually goes to school studying web design and development, so her site has always reflected the latest of technology. (something that literally makes me want to pull my hair out…computer technology is not a friend to me!!!! 🙂 ) Read More

Spring Gala Redux: New York Meets Philly

Bette and Jamie

Our friend, Jamie, “another divine ms m,” made her annual trek to Bette’s Spring Affair with family and friends. She was kind enough to send in some pics of the gala. Seems NYRP raised over 500, ooo.00 to keep their beautification of New York growing.

Jamie said the whole affair was fabulous, hot (in both senses of the word), and that the gardens were gorgeous. On a side note, Jamie is doing her part to help clean up the Philly communities by creating some beautiful gardens there with the help of grants and volunteers. You’ll probably be reading more about her efforts here in the near future. Read More

Which star has had the most lucrative year? Forbes magazine, which is releasing its annual Celebrity 100 list in this Friday’s issue, isn’t saying yet.

But the magazine did drop some hints about the makeup of the list. Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Forbes staff writer Peter Kafka noted a changing of the comedy guard, with new movie hitmaker Will Ferrell and Comedy Central cash cow Dave Chappelle making the list for the first time, even as Jim Carrey fell off the list. Similarly, Friends is out (Jennifer Aniston is the only member of the sextet still on the list) and Desperate Housewives is in. Read More
