BetteBack September 6, 1991: Geraldo Tastelessly Bares His Sex Life

Madison Wisconsin State Journal
September 6, 1991

r-BETTE-MIDLER-GERALDO-large570

 

A middle-aged man brags about his sexual conquests … live, on the next Geraldo!

What? The man IS Geraldo?

That’s right — the syndicated talk show host has penned his autobiography, replete with tales of threesomes in an ABC-TV boiler room
and celebrity interviews that ended with Rivera bedding the interviewee.

Like this encounter with Bette Midler: “We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her
breasts. She loved it, and we fell into a passionate embrace.”

Or maybe this one with Margaret Trudeau: “It was like she had never been made love to before. It was like she was unleashing years of pent-up frustration.”

Or this one with two nameless college students breaking into the news business: “This particular relationship, begun as one of my many dalliances, blossomed into one of my great romances.”

Calls for comment from Midler and Trudeau were not immediately returned. The title of Geraldo’s tome: “Exposing Myself.”

BetteBack August 16, 1991: Bruce Vilanch Goes It Alone

Daily Herald Suburban Chicago
August 16, 1991

3-25-2012 2-13-20 PM

Bruce Vilanch, the so-called “Comedian for the Stars” who cut his dramatic teeth at Ohio State University and later in Chicago before making the trek to the coast, will bring his stand-up act to Zanies in Mount Prospect Thursday through Aug. 24.

Primarily a comedy writer and a lyricist. Vilanch has six Emmys under his substantial belt and has written for such heavyweights as Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin. Billy Crystal, Burt Reynolds and Whoopi Goldberg.

Plus, he’s penned gags for lots of awards shows, such as the Oscars, the Emmys, the People’s Choice awards and the American Comedy awards.

But can he cut it out there all by himself with just the microphone and his wits?
