BetteBack June 9, 1997: Bette Midler Hits The Ruby Wax Show

Daily Herald Suburban
June 9, 1997

hqdefault

“The Ruby Wax Show” has a distinctly British feel. It’s a lark, as Wax compares breasts with Pamela Anderson Lee, climbs into bed with Goldie Hawn and goes shopping with Bette Midler. But the thing that makes it work — both here and abroad — is Wax’s Midwestern straightforwardness, which must seem as exotic to U.K.viewers as “Cracker” is to us.

Wax holds up one of Lee’s skimpy T-shirts and says with disbelief, “Now, you don’t have a 4-year-old child. This is for your body.” She discusses childbirth with Hawn, saying, “I never forgave my children for not knowing where the exit was.” She compares struggling actor jobs with Midler and talks about being a waitress at the Evanston Holiday Inn.

Charlie Puth knows how to drive the conversation. The 24-year-old doesn’t skip a beat when asked who he’d like to see sub in for Selena Gomez for their chart-topping single “We Don’t Talk Anymore.”

“I’d love to perform it with Bette Midler,” he says. “I would make this whole jazz orchestral arrangement with her.” Oh, Bette? You mean your fellow co-mentor on this upcoming season of the “The Voice,” premiering Monday on NBC? “Yeah, that’s why I said her,” he coyly adds. Read More

Black-Ish: The One Where Ruby Was A Background Singer For Bette Midler

Vulture
Black-ish Recap: Doctor Dre
By Nichole Perkins
May 15, 2016

Bette+Midler+Jenifer+Lewis+Marc+Shaiman+Performs+-7zdsHi2isxl

What a sweet episode! This one is an immediate favorite. Dre’s ego is a constant source of frustration, but this week, he’s able to put his own needs aside to take care of his family. In “Daddy Dre-Care,” Dre realizes his helpless-dad routine has made him miss out on important parts of his children’s lives, so he sets out to correct his behavior and gets a little surprise as a reward.

As the episode begins, Ruby gets sick after eating too much “dirty church meat,” as Bow calls it. It’s flu season and Ruby has attended three church events that featured communal eating. Jack falls ill next, after eating the leftovers Ruby brought home. When Junior and Diane mock Jack for getting sick, he tricks Junior into coming to his bed. Jack swabs his mouth, then sticks his finger into Junior’s mouth. Down goes Junior. One by one, the family succumbs to the flu. Dre does his best to avoid both getting sick and having to take care of anyone. When Bow becomes nauseous and feverish, though, she forces Dre to step up. Read More

A deceptively simple episode of Black-ish changes everything (Bette Midler was a sub-plot)

A.V. Club
A deceptively simple episode of Black-ish changes everything
By LaToya Ferguson@lafergs

Until Dre goes full “Dr. Mom”/“Dr. Dre” in “Daddy Dre-Care,” the episode is almost shockingly—and kind of frustratingly—simplistic for Black-ish. Everyone in the house gets sick with the flu, and Dre doesn’t want them to take him down. There. That’s it.

It then begs the question of exactly why the show would bring out the big guns for this particular episode: Showrunner Kenya Barris pens “Daddy Dre-Care,” with executive producer Jonathan Groff in the director’s chair, after all. Plus, with Dre’s opening voice-over, it almost feels like Black-ish missed the bus on Mother’s Day for ABC, especially since it already covered “Daddy’s Day.” The episode is almost a fever dream itself, as Dre is the only one at 100% while every other available (no Pops this week) member of the Johnson clan is down for the count and, in the kids’ case, reduced to loud voices. Basically, Dre doesn’t know how to take care of his kids—and he really doesn’t need to take much care of his wife and mother—and the kids refuse to be anything other than spoiled brats about that. It’s arguably not the best use of the actors’ and the show’s strengths. Read More
