Feak Show is based on the award-winning cult novel of the same name by James St James. The coming of age heart warmer relays the timely tale of Billy Bloom, “a boldly confident and eccentric teenager who faces intolerance and persecution at his ultra-conservative high school, and decides to fight back on behalf of all the misunderstood freaks of the world.” The kicker in the equation? His overbearing mother Muv is played by real-life gay rights icon, the incomparable Divine Miss M herself (Bette Midler). Read More

We’ll take the news with a grain of salt, but it seems that Glenn Close and Patti LuPone may have finally reconciled after reportedly having a falling out more than 20 years ago, according to Page Six.

 According to a rep for Close, the two Broadway veterans took a trip to see the Bette Midler production of Hello, Dolly! and had drinks afterwards at Bar Centrale, where they were observed laughing like they were old friends without a hint of resentment. Read More

BetteBack December 28, 1993: Memorable Moments From Television 1993

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

Everything’s coming up roses?

As far as Bette Midler is concerned, absolutely.

She looks like a shoo-in for another Emmy for her powerhouse, all-systems-are-go performance as Mama Rose in CBS’s splendid re-creation of the 1959 Broadway musical Gypsy.

The special three-hour broadcast, tonight at 8 p.m., EST, perfectly defines the concept of event television.

The first Mama Rose was Ethel Merman, using her last appearance in a Broadway show to crown a legendary career with her most memorable performance. Read More

BetteBack February 14, 1992: Bette Midler And Sophie Accosted By Paparazzi

MIDLER MADNESS: Bette Midler apparently has a talent for making scenes — and not necessarily on camera. Recently, Midler took her young daughter, Sophie, to see the Broadway musical, “The Secret Garden.”

Upon exciting the theater, Bette was bombarded by paparazzi who asked for a photo of Bette and her daughter. Rather than co-operate, Bette put up a fuss and refused. Grabbing little Sophie, who was by now hysterical, the star swept out of the theater and began running through the streets to her hotel, with the lensmen in hot pursuit. Read More

BetteBack November 19, 1989: Bette’s ‘Stella’ Will Not Be All Camp

Isn’t It true that Bette Midler will camp It up in a remake of 193Ts classic weeper “Stella Dellas”? Wouldn’t be better If she played It straight? — T.D.

Hold on a minute. “Stella” is the Bette Midler remake of Barbara Stanwyk’s definitive movie soap opera about a woman who sacrifices all for her daughter.

The Midler version isn’t due out for a while but my spies tell me it’s part camp, part tears. “The first half is very funny,” says one Hollywoodian who caught the flick at a test-market preview. It’s the second half that will bring on the tears, I’m told. Read More
