He grabs Bette Midler’s boobs, beds every conceivable underling, and waxes about failing to have sex with Barbara Walters. I read it all so you didn’t have to.

Threesomes with young interns in the studio boiler room. Making out with a PA in front of an entire news crew. Receiving oral sex from the estranged wife of the Canadian prime minister in a Central Park rowboat. Read More

Can we calculate without the aid of a supercomputer the amount of courage it took Meryl Streep to take her shot at President-elect Donald Trump?

Hollywood’s Victim Complex

Can we calculate without the aid of a supercomputer the amount of courage it took Meryl Streep to take her shot at President-elect Donald Trump as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement last night at the Golden Globes? Or could we complete the tally in a split second on a single finger? I think so.

There Streep was, gazing over a sea of designer gowns and fashionable tuxedos, addressing the most condensed mass of liberal group-think since students returned to Oberlin College earlier this month after winter break. Almost to a one, Hollywood hates Trump as much as it loved Hillary Clinton, and attacking him constitutes the highest form of self-congratulation. Just look at a short list of actors and producers who soaked Trump in verbal abuse during the campaign: Alec Baldwin, Jack Black, Cher, Louis C.K., George Clooney, Bryan Cranston, Lee Daniels, Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp, Eve Ensler, Lena Dunham, America Ferrera, Richard Gere, Chelsea Handler, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Lawrence, Bette Midler, Rosie O’Donnell, Shonda Rhimes, Mark Ruffalo, Susan Sarandon, Shakira, Sarah Silverman, Russell Simmons, Ben Stiller, Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde. The list goes on and on, through Beverly Hills, past the Hollywood sign and behind the San Fernando Valley. Read More

AUSTIN — Donald Trump’s tossing of Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from a news gathering caught the attention of Bette Midler, who saved her surprise for the behavior of the journalists who watched it happen.

“Kinda shocked that the reporters in the room at Trump’s press conference didn’t walk out when he threw Jorge out of the room,” she said on Twitter, pointedly asking where they were hiding their backbones. Read More

World-famous singer, actress and litter-hater Bette Midler has added her powerful mezzo-soprano to the list of voices supporting Councilwoman Margaret Chin and Councilman Brad Lander’s proposed 10-cent fee on disposable plastic bags.

Ms. Midler’s New York Restoration Project, which works to improve city parks in low-income neighborhoods, penned a letter to Council members urging them to support the bill in order to reduce the number of plastic bags fluttering aimlessly around public greenspaces and waterfront areas and clogging landfills.

June 6, 2013

Nearly 20 percent of Californians live in places where local ordinances prohibit stores from handing out single-use plastic bags, but the rest of the state is safe – at least for this year- from bag-grabbers who tried to ban the lightweight grocery sacks in the state legislature.

And Bette Midler is not amused.

‘Plastic bags are a scourge to the planet and everything that tries to live on it,’ the liberal activist actress and singer told the Los Angeles Times after a state Senate vote came up three votes short. Read More

BetteBack April 10, 1978: Bette Midler Donates To The ERA

Stars Give Money To Back ERA

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
