Really? Can’t Hold A Candle To?

Mister D: Why can’t people who supposedly report news keep their opinions to themselves. They are supposed to be objective. Although, it’s debatable that this is a news site–it’s a gossip site. You can leave comments also on this site: Click Here

Celine Dion returning to Las Vegas for three years
Posted by Tim Henley on February 10, 2010M at 12:28 pm
Celine Dion announced she is returning to Sin City.

Dion signed a contract to perform at Caesars Palace for three years beginning March 15, 2011. Dion previously performed at the palace from 2002 to 2007, but she left when her contract expired.

Dion told People magazine she will give 70 performances per year. When dion left Caesars Palace in 2007, Bette Midler replaced her in 2008. Midler’s contract ended last month.

Although Midler is a legend in her own right, she still can’t hold a candle to Celine. Good choice on the part of Caesars Palace owners to bring Celine back.

I would be sad without Delores…I love her. I know Bette had said a few years back that she didn’t know how long she would be able to do Delores (I don’t remember where or when I heard this but it stuck in my mind because i love the delores part of the show)so maybe next time around they won’t include her. So sad :(

I don’t know why you even dignify Perez Hilton’s reporting by reading his blog. He’s part of the tabloid media. He writes about who is paying a mortgage or not! Take a look:

“Pay Up! Brian Austin Green Owes Over $70k In Mortgage Payments!

Was 2006 a year of hopes and aspirations for former 90210 star Brian Austin Green???

Because he took out a $2 million mortgage on his Hollywood Hills home in ’06!

Sadly, it’s 2010, and when you’re most famously known for clinging onto Megan Fox, you end up behind on mortgage payments!

Reports say Green is over $70k behind on his payments, but a rep for the actor says it’s all strategy!

The former David Silver is hoping for a “short sale” of his home, in which he’d sell it for less $$$$$ than he owes and hand the money over to the mortgage company.

Smart idea?”

That’s not journalism. In my world, tabloid media wouldn’t make a single buck. I only visited his site because you pointed it out to me. If you like gossip, try Liz Smith. She’s a lady and a BetteHead.

Jayson: I wouldn’t exactly call Celine “young”. She’s quite younger than Bette, yes, but she’s not young by any stretch of the imagination as far as the female voice is concerned. Although her voice is still strong and holding up much better than others around her age (Mariah Carey, for example).

Sorry I’m just jumping into the fray on this one.

Celine Dion is a fantastic singer with wider mainstream appeal, and I love her music, but I too am tired of all the insults. You can’t compare Celine’s previous ticket sales to Bette’s. The economy has tanked since Celine was last in Vegas, and Bette draws a much different audience. And it’s like so many others have already said, Bette’s a triple threat. Celine’s just a singer.

At least this particular article didn’t make me as angry as every single post Perez Hilton ever writes about Bette. As a gay man, he doesn’t seem to have much respect for the icons, besides Cher.

Sorry, I’ve been fuming over this for a few days now.

I don’t understand what the problem is with Bette’s Delores segment. That’s always been a favorite part of the show for me. It’s entertaining as it is beautiful and its Bette. It’s what makes Bette’s show hers along with Soph and everything else. I’m confused.

Mr. D:

I think you said it: When I post I reflect first. When e-mailing a pal, I let my tongue on the loose.

I don’t want much:

1. I want more films for The Divine One. Perhaps the Weinsteins can help in this arena. Harvey is very good on promoting quality movies and getting awards for them. LET’S NOT FORGET TO KIDNAP SALLY FIELD.

2. I want a partial world arena tour. I’d need a research to see if it would be doable in my own Latin America.

3. I want more divine products. It isn’t fair to have three Streisand concerts, Celine Dion’s A New Day and only Divine Madness (which I don’t watch much) and Diva Las Vegas (As time went by, in different media, 2 VHS tapes, a Brazilian DVD and a British CD & DVD combo).
