Bette Midler is turning into a Joan Rivers. The Divine Miss M opened in a Hollywood club with a spate of jokes about Jane Fonda and others. Twitting Jane Fonda about her physical fitness campaign, Bette cracked: “Did you notice her in ‘On Golden Pond‘? She walked around the whole time with her tummy pulled in.”

Bette reminded the audience that Sophie Tucker used to tell raunchy stories. “Now they’re a.ll ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ stories.” And, of course, there were lots of Valley Girl jokes.
