This Day In History: BETTE MIDLER HEADLINES TV’S ‘GYPSY’ (December 12)

On this day in 1993, CBS presented a telefilm version of the Broadway musical, Gypsy, starring Cynthia Gibb in the title role, and Bette Midler as her domineering mother, Mama Rose.

The telefilm faithfully recreated the original Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim musical about an overbearing stage mother (famously portrayed by Ethel Merman) and the awkward daughter who blossoms into one of burlesque’s most famous entertainers, Gypsy Rose Lee.

The cast also included Peter Riegert, Edward Asner, Michael Jeter, Andrea Martin, Christine Ebersole, Tony Shalhoub and Lacey Chabert. Jerome Robbins, who directed and choreographed the original Broadway production, also choreographed the telefilm, which was released in theaters outside the U.S. Read More

Screw The Producer’s Cap…I’m Just Performing!

Coming to theaters later this month, PARENTAL GUIDANCE stars BETTE MIDLER and BILLY CRYSTAL as wacky grandparents drafted into babysitting duties when their daughter calls with an emergency request for assistance. Directed by ANDY FICKMAN from a script that was punched up by longtime screen-writing partners LOWELL GANZ and BABALOO MANDEL, the film promises plenty of holiday hi jinks aimed at the whole family .

BETTE MIDLER (as always) proves that she can do anything and turns in another great comedy performance. Unlike previous films, MIDLER now chooses to eschew behind the scenes grunt work and concentrate on performing. During an interview we did with her a while back, she talked about her movie career and losing her interest in being a producer. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO) Read More

Conflicting Dates For “Katie” Appearance….Please Read!

BetteHead Danielle came up with a good point. On Bette’s official page, they have her appearing on “Katie” December 21st still. My TV has Bette being on December 20th. I spoke to my Bette source and she insists the show will be shown the 21st. It is pre-recorded.

If I were everybody else…I would tape the 20th just in case. If she’s not on it that day, then make sure you record the 21st. Just so you’re covered….

Love, Mister D
