P.S. I Love You by Bette Midler

Dear, I thought I’d drop a line.
The weather’s cool. The folks are fine.
I’m in bed each night at nine.
P.S. I love you.

Yesterday we had some rain,
but all in all I can’t complain.
Was it dusty on the train?
P.S. I love you.

Write to the Browns just as soon as you’re able.
They came around to call.
I burned a hole in the dining room table.
And let me see, I guess that’s all.

Nothin’ else for me to say,
and so I’ll close. Oh, by the way,
everybody’s thinkin’ of you.
P.S. I love you. Read More

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Valerie Harper gave $5,000. Bette Midler, counting her pennies, donated $3,473 and put the pinch on Jack Nicholson, yelling, “Jack, you’re richer than all of us!”

The scene was a sunny, Sunday afternoon party for the proposed Equal Rights Amendment — and Hollywood’s in-crowd opened their pockets for a total of $50,000 for the cause.

Gene Hackman, Jon Voight, Hal Linden and other actors joined female entertainers in sampling wine and cheese at
actress Joan Hackett‘s hilltop house. .. Read More

Bette Midler hopes to bring as much brass to the role of late superagent Sue Mengers in an upcoming Broadway play as the real-life character did making Hollywood deals.

“She was not a star in the conventional sense, but in her world she was a star,” says Midler, who plays Mengers in “I’ll Eat You Last,” in April’s Vanity Fair.

“She was kicked to the curb. But she did not compromise. She did what the [bleep] she wanted to do. I wish I had those balls.” Read More
