On Endorsing Political Candidates: “When stars take political stands, it’s really dumb. They’re so cavalier, Most of them really don’t have both sides of the stories.

HE’S the Republican presidential frontrunner, a real estate magnate and television personality with – if you believe him – a fortune valued at around $10 billion.

And the king of controversial, Donald Trump, was a bottomless pit of headline-making one-liners many years before he decided to run for president.

Since announcing his candidacy in June 2015, Trump’s divisive comments have gone from comical to contentious, and have become the subject of intense public scrutiny and mass media coverage. Read More

BetteBack January 14, 1994: Did Bette Hire Strippers For Her Birthday Party?

Q: What’s this about Bette Midler hosting a private party for her male entourage featuring a female stripper? — GJS.

A: Even though Bette was sensational as Mama Rose in the recent TV version of Gypsy, she has not gone off the deep end about strippers or stripteasing. My Kansas City spies report that Midler passed through town recently with her “Experience the Divine” concert show. A local club promoter got wind that the date coincided with Midler’s 48th birthday and planned a rise celebration. In addition to gifts presented to the singer-actress and her party of 25, a magician and belly dancer were hired to spice things up. The belly dancer, not a stripper, shimmied in a silver- and goldcoin costume from Egypt. The irrepressible Bette loved it, and, naturally enough, joined the shimmying. Read More

“WHAT ARE YOUR MEASUREMENTS”

6-10-2015 2-53-53 PM

“What are your measurements ” — it slipped out like a belch after a gassy meal. I didn’t know I’d done it until I’d done it — if you see what I mean.

Silence.

Annie Ivil, who was flitting about the room stopped — looked at me, and looked at Bette… Who looked at Annie, and then looked at me.
Like magic her whole appearance changed. The face, which, as I said before, looked ugly, suddenly remodelled itself. Muscles began to work; her eyes opened wide, and her lips spread, and she crossed her legs, and lounged back, hands behind her head. Read More
