Bette Midler On Motherhood:

Bette Midler On Motherhood: “Every mother wants to be remembered and I want my daughter to remember me. I read to her and play with her every chance I get. She doesn’t like me to sing to her, but she loves it when I do pratfalls. She adores the ‘Hocus Pocus’ character, and I do it for her at least once a day. She is such a source of joy to me. Having a child is the best thing I ever did” (Beaver County Times – Apr 9, 1997)

Bette Midler On Hollywood And Movies:

Bette Midler On Hollywood And Movies: “My take on the world is so peculiar and so odd that Hollywood writers and directors didn’t know what to do with me. And there were too many of them to bang all their heads together to try and change them” (Beaver County Times – Apr 9, 1997)

BetteBack December 28, 1993: Memorable Moments From Television 1993

Syracuse Post Standard

In a cockeyed channel-surfing world, the memorable TV moments multiply.

Cable is everywhere. Fiber optic is coming. We now inhabit an incredibly fragmented TV landscape.

So it’s tough to get a consensus on unforgettable. Increasingly, all TV memories are personal.

You, for instance, might fixate on scaring televised memories of last spring’s Branch Davidian conflagration in Waco. The merry prankster next to you, however, may prefer to obsess about the time Beavis and Butt-head licked a frog to get high. Read More

As conversation continues to swirl around Leonardo DiCaprio’s under-appreciated thespianism, Bette Midler has issued a pointed reminder about the Academy Awards’ continual failure to recognize black actors of equal mettle.

“The Oscars are today!” the multi-hyphenate performer tweeted Sunday. “You know, the awards show where Leonardo DiCaprio is ‘overdue’ but black people can ‘wait till next year.’” Read More

Barry Diller hosted his annual Oscars weekend luncheon at his Beverly Hills estate with Diane von Furstenberg on Saturday — and this year’s guest list was more exclusive then ever.

“They cut the list in half,” explained a guest who added that there were 400 VIPs who made the cut this year. As Diller made the rounds barefoot in Bermuda shorts, Hollywood execs, stars, directors and “the young Euro set” mixed at the afternoon event, which this year honored Vanity Fair’s Graydon Carter.

BetteBack December 27, 1993: Bette Midler Donates Opera Singer Marion Anderson’s Gowns To Museum

Daily Globe
December 27, 1993

ff107

NEW YORK (AP) — Broadway and screen star Bette Midler has given the Museum of the City of New York 11 gowns and one coat that once belonged to Marian Anderson.

The museum says the gowns were bought for the museum by Midler, “a patron whose historical and theatrical conscience provided the incentive for the purchase at auction.”

Anderson, renowned African American singer, wore the garments at concerts from the 1930s through the early 1950s. The museum says of them: “Spanning three decades and evidencing a preference for gilt lame, their sumptuous simplicity echoes the timeless perfection and richness of Miss Anderson’s contralto (regarded by many as the voice of the century).” Read More
