Bette Midler On what she’s given up in marriage:

Bette Midler On what she’s given up in marriage: “Well, I’ve given up a lot of independence. You know … I make decisions really– well, I can’t say I make them quickly, but I do make decisions. And I do– and I’m quick. I go – I’ll take this, this, this, and this, I’ll do this, this, this, and this. And sometimes people don’t wanna do what you wanna do. So then you, you have to say, “Well, what do you wanna do?” (CBS News, 2014) Read More

Bette Midler On her husband, Martin:

Bette Midler On her husband, Martin: “You know that when I first got married, this guy I knew … was introduced to my husband, he said, “The man who tamed the beast.” And I never forgot that. And indeed, I think it– really it was like that. Because I was a handful. And I’ve learned a lot and I’ve grown a lot and I’ve given up a lot. And it’s been a negotiation, a 30-year negotiation. But it’s been really interesting. I wouldn’t trade him in a fort.” (CBS News, 2014) Read More

BetteBack March 1973: It’s “Divine” Bette Midler

Newark Star Lodger –
March 1973

2016-07-19_9-03-43

It happens so fast you have to do a quick double-take: One second she’s prancing and gliding across the stage in a poured-into raspberry sequined backless sheath, the quintessential ’40s nightclub star. Then, with a zip quicker than-the-eye, a flash of raspberry sequin is tossed at the gray haired man in the second row, and the singer, still prancing, is wearing – tight black satin leotards and a black corset – halter.

Quick change accomplished, Bette Midler, the “Divine Miss M,” is ready to take us on a trip back to the “fahb-bue-lus” days of the Shangri-Las‘ “Leader of the Pack.” She turns her back to the audience, as the spotlight centers slightly below her waist, and begins that
rock and roll saga of a biker’s girl – a perfectly raunchy caricature of the part. Read More

Bette Midler Classic ‘Beaches’ Is Being Remade: How should we feel about all of this?

Bette Midler Classic ‘Beaches’ Is Being Remade: Who but The Divine Miss M can play CC Bloom, though?
By Rachel Shuker

The fever has broken. The president has spoken. The Secretary of State has spoken. The world might not collapse after all. And even if it does, there is one small reason to go on living: Lifetime has announced that its remake of the classic 1988 tearjerker Beaches (directed, lest we forget, by the recently passed and much beloved Garry Marshall), is beginning production this August. And for Bette Midler’s role as CC Bloom, the brassy aspiring singer who lent her name to Edinburgh’s most famous gay bar—and made a star of the young Mayim Bialik, whose rendition of “The Glory of Love” was the single greatest influence on my third grade year, much to the chagrin of those around me—the network has chosen its star: Adele Dazeem!

From An Intimate Evening With Bette:

From An Intimate Evening With Bette: “Did you like the TV special?” I did…I was real proud of it. The network was very nice, too. The only thing they asked me not to do was mention drugs. Gee..I didn’t realise drugs were the enemy in television, I thought they were the sponsor…” (Melody Maker, 1978)
