There is no question that when Sonny Bono started his “Sonny Comedy Hour” he missed Cher.

The absence of Cher was one of the real reasons for the show failing to make it through the season.

Not only did Sonny’s show lack writing, it lacked comedy.

Next Wednesday night, Cher will try it on her own. This show, a special designed to kick off her new series, came off much better than did Sonny’s solo venture in television.

It was the presence of Cher that made the old “Sonny and Cher Show” a success. The girl can wear clothes like a high fashion model. Read More

Bruce Vilanch Comes To Bette Midler’s Defense On Her Caitlyn Jenner Joke

Instinct Magazine
Is It Okay To Make Fun Of Caitlyn Jenner?
Instinct Staff | September 6, 2016

Boy Culture interviewed legendary comedy writer Bruce Vilanch, who had his own opinions on the joke and the response to it:

BC: Bette Midler recently took it on the chin when she was perceived as mocking Caitlyn Jenner for being trans.

BV: Personally, I thought that was insane. She wasn’t making a joke about transgenders, she was making a joke about the monetizing of transgenderism, which is being done by Caitlyn Jenner. Read More

Bette Midler on Sue Mengers who thought of her clients as family:

Bette Midler on Sue Mengers who thought of her clients as family: “I think Sue’s heart was broken in a way after the pile-on—the fact that a lot of people she thought would be loyal to her were not loyal. She was unprepared for it. When you observe it from a distance, you can say, ‘Oh, that poor schmuck.’ But until it happens to you, you really don’t know what it feels like.” (Vanity Fair, 2013)

5 LGBT things you need to know today, April 21
Patrick Saunders April 20, 2015 2:07 pm 5 LGBT Things
April 21, 2015

1. In a new poll, those surveyed say by a 51 percent to 35 percent margin that it’s no longer practical for the Supreme Court to ban same-sex marriages because so many states have legalized them. Close to half of respondents said they have a gay or lesbian family member or close friend who is married to someone of the same sex.

2. Students at a Pennsylvania high school held an “Anti-Gay Day” protest last Thursday, wearing coordinated flannel shirts, writing the words “anti-gay” on their hands and putting Bible verses on LGBT students’ lockers. The protest occurred a day after the school’s Gay-Straight Alliance’s Day of Silence. Read More

BetteBack February 13, 1991: Stars To Gather For Gulf Troops Song

Deer Park Broadcaster
‘We are the World,’ minus a singer or two
by Matt Ray
February 13, 1991

In Ihis patriotic time, understandably everyone is wanting lo do somcihing to support the troops. Such is the case for the latest mega-star gathering to record an upl i f t ing song for the soldiers in the desert. This sounds like a nice enough idea, but looking at the list of participants, one wonders if they c o u l d n ‘t just write a letter.

I mean, please. Mike Tyson, Sally Field and Whoopi Goldberg recording a song for the troops? Maybe a dramatic reading or s lug fcst of some kind, bul a song? Read More
