On Experience The Divine Tour: “I haven’t been in the Bette Midler business for the past 10 years: I’ve been in the Touchstone film business, pretty much.”

On Experience The Divine Tour: “I haven’t been in the Bette Midler business for the past 10 years: I’ve been in the Touchstone film business, pretty much.” Midler’s contract with Disney’s Touchstone has two pictures to go. “They have their ideas. I’ve been good, I’ve done good work, I’ve had a lot of fun with them, but I’m looking forward to doing my own thing.” (1991, Washington Post) – Bette Midler

(On Woody Allen and maybe starring in one of his films) “Well, you know, he never calls, he never writes … I dropped a few hints, but I don’t know.

(On Woody Allen and maybe starring in one of his films) “Well, you know, he never calls, he never writes … I dropped a few hints, but I don’t know. I thought he liked me. I thought he enjoyed it. [Woody’s agent] Sam Cohn called me and said he thought Scenes From a Mall was the best thing he’d ever seen me do and he was sure it would be a big hit, and he sounded genuine. He had no reason to lie. He thought we were fabulous together. And I thought, “Golly, I hope I get to do it again.”‘ (1991, Movieline) – 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 August 8, 1974: Fashion – Girls Look Like A Woman

El Paso Herald Post
August 8, 1974

83870

The common denominator for a variety of new fashions from high-styled Adolfo to funky Bette Midler is that “they all make a girl look like a woman.” There is even a revival, in the most recent showings, of big hats, four-inch heels and white gloves.

New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom wasn’t big enough for dueling divas Bette Midler and Cher on Friday night.

The Divine Miss M dissed a tardy, lip synching Cher as “someone who used to be famous, ” according to witnesses at the Miracle On 34th Street concert.

The latest flare up between the two superstars was sparked by Cher, who, due to sing first, appeared a half hour late. Apparently she had been getting her face retooled by make up artist Kevin Acoin, but Midler’s camp suspected her dramatic entrance was deliberate. Read More

Bette Midler On Clams:

Bette Midler On Clams: “Here we are just minutes away from the opening. God only knows what’s to become of us. I mean; I never imagined it would turn into this epic of death … the most mind-boggling, stupendous production ever conceived and built around one poor small five-foot-one-and-a-half-inch Jewish girl from Honolulu. All of a sudden I’m a whole industry. People run, they fetch, they carry, they nail, they paint, they sew. I had always dressed my girls from stock and now here we are with real costumes . . . they’re pinning here and tucking here and pushing tits up to the neck and showing calves. Do you know what this is? It’s a celebration of the sexual rites of a New Yorker.” (Emporia Gazette, April 12, 1975) Read More
