NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

Bette Midler On Being A Pop Star:

Bette Midler On Being A Pop Star: “The stature of the pop star used to fascinate me. I just couldn’t figure out how these people got themselves into that position. I used to listen to the radio a lot, but always AM. Before rock and roll it was mostly white music. I didn’t get into rhythm and blues until later on in rock and roll, like the early 60’s. I loved the groups and I loved straight ahead rock and roll . The Coasters and the Del Vikings and the Skyliners. I wasn’t a collector. I was an observer. I’ve always been an observer. ˜That’s really my thing. I watch things, then I twist it around to get another view, then give It back to them and make them see it in another way that they never saw before cos they were so busy taking it seriously. I can’t’ take any of it seriously. You work as hard as you can, but no matter how brilliant you think it is, there is always going to be someone that’s going to look at it cockeyed and turn it around for you. That’s what I get from the theatre of the ridiculous the sardonic side of it. What good is it if you can’t giggle at it, cos in the long run that’s all it is.” (Zoo World, October 25, 1973) Read More

For Bette Midler fans, don’t get too excited when you see the hype for a new movie, “The Divine Mr. J.”

The publicity people would have us believe it’s a new movie starring the Divine Miss M as the Virgin Mary in a religious Satire. Truth of the matter is the film was made three years ago in Detroit and Bette’s part is a bit .,. .

Q: Bette Midler was hilarious as Candace Bergen‘s last secretary in the season finale of Murphy Brown. But frankly, I’d rather have a new Bette album.

A: Wait no more, Bette Midler’s newest CD, Bathhouse Betty, her first in three years, hits stores this month.  It includes the title song from Meryl Streep‘s new movie, One True Thing.

You aren’t alone in noticing Midler’s campy turn on Murphy Brown. ABC tried to lure her into a sitcom deal.  Nothing came of it for this season; however, Midler may make some kind of deal with Carsey-Werner known for developing comedies around strong women. Read More

Bette Midler, who won for her HBO special, said Las Vegas was the perfect setting for her concert. “Las Vegas is full of show business types, and we invited all Vegas people and no tourists. We were doing a low-rent show-biz kind of thing, which can only be
celebrated in places like Las Vegas.”

Bette Midler On Her Brother:

Bette Midler On Her Brother: “But we had a very rough time. I have a retarded brother. It was very, very hard for my mother because her friends all told her to put him in an institution and she refused. So in my family, everything was for my brother. Everything. My parents put money away constantly so that he wouldn’t be a burden to us girls after they were gone.” (1996)
