FeedBack On: “Bette!” The Complete Television Series On DVD
(Thanks Wendy!)

Mister D: I got some feedback on the box set of Bette: The Complete Television Series On DVD and for what it’s worth it seems legit and a good deal, especially for anyone who never had the chance to see it or didn’t get it recorded. Another bonus is that these are supposedly formatted region free so they will play on any DVD player, DVD-ROM X-Box or PS2 Worldwide.

ArtWork: Lucy Wilkins

Wendy received her copy and this is basically what she had to say about it:

“It has the whole series on it; you can not skip to a certain scene in an episode though. It does show you the different episode names on the menu and it allows you to pick your favorite one. There are no extras, it is just the 18 shows. It is a good thing to have if you did not see the show or if you missed a few here or there. It was not like I thought it would be, but there is nothing wrong with any of the episodes. They are all there, all normal length in time, and all funny.” Read More

Parade Magazine
Walter Scott’s Personality Parade®
Personality Parade (02/26/2006)

Q. Bette Midler did tribute albums to Peggy Lee and Rosemary Clooney. Does she plan any more?
—Martha Jennings, Ridgefield, Conn.

A. It was her pal Barry Manilow who suggested she follow the Clooney album with her new Lee disc. We’re told that Bette, 60, has no definite plans, but we suggest Ethel Merman and Judy Garland tribute albums.

Bette in March 2006 Issue Of “Interview” Magazine (Thanks Macaire!)

Mister D: Macaire wrote in to let all of you know that Bette has a great spread in the new issue of Interview magazine with Michelle Williams (Brokeback Mountain) on the cover. Antony of Antony and the Johnsons (the new “IT” guy on the NY music scene) conducts the interview with her. So be sure to run out to your local bookstore and grab a copy. If you live out in the sticks and don’t have access to the mag, hopefully we’ll be able to get it on-line soon.

Thank you so much for the heads up Miss Macaire! Read More

Your Cavity Needs A Little Filling

Frisky Midler
Anecdotage.com
Feb 17, 2006

In 1999, Diana Ross was arrested for assaulting a female airport security guard who, she claimed, had touched her breast while conducting a routine search. “Personally,” Bette Midler later said of the incident, “I always love a good pat-down. If I were Diana, I would have held out for the cavity search!”

[Trivia: In 1999, Middler announced that she would be performing on the eve of the Millennium in Las Vegas, where, she said, she would go “nose to nose with Barbra Streisand.”] Read More

You Go Miss Liz!!!!: Embrace the Dinosaur

New York Post
Liz Smith
Feb 17, 2006

February 17, 2006 — ‘I VERY much doubt if anyone of us has the faintest idea of what is meant by the reality of existence of any thing but our own egos,” wrote the philosopher A. Eddington.

This brought to mind a recent comment made by my confreres on Page Six. Writing about Goldie Hawn and Bette Midler, the unidentified reporter placed this word after their names – “Dinosaurs!”

Well, yes, everybody over 50 is now in the dinosaur category. But this column is forever being bombarded with news and carryings-on in the energetic lives of people in the dino category. As Cole Porter would have put it, “fabulous doings in the ruins of old Pompeii!” But we’d have to add that the people “doing” are fabulous ruins in themselves. Read More
