(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

BetteBack January 26, 2000: Bette Midler stars in `Isn’t She Great’

Bette Midler stars in `Isn’t She Great

From the very beginning, best-selling novelist Jacqueline Susann (Bette Midler) just wanted her place in the spotlight. With no agent and no one calling for auditions, she scraped by with residuals from the occasional radio jingle, television commercial and game show appearance.

Still, with every failure — and there were plenty –she remained undeterred in her guest for fame. A friend once told her that “talent wasn’t everything,” and for no person was this more true. Read More

BetteBack October 27, 1996: Jinxed Ken Wahl Update

Q: I heard that Ken Wahl was arrested for drunk driving. Is it true he began drinking to relieve pain after a motorcycle accident? Is that what caused his career to go downhill after his “Wiseguy” TV series? —S.K., San Antonio, Tex.

A: When Ken Wahl, 39, was arrested last December for playing loud music at his home in Malibu, Calif., the police checked their computers and discovered an outstanding warrant against him for driving under the influence of alcohol. Wahl could not immediately post the $5000 bail and spent the weekend in jail. He pleaded “no contest,” was given probation and was required to join an alcohol-recovery program. In an April interview, however, the moody actor said he still drank vodka to relieve the chronic neck pain he
has suffered since a 1992 motorcycle accident. Wahl came out of retirement last spring to make a “Wiseguy” TV movie. He now has a new agent and has begun to look at scripts again. Read More

Bette On The Illusion People Have Of Her: “People are always surprised or disappointed to find out I’m not that person (outrageous, brassy, trashy). But I could never be that crazy…

Bette On The Illusion People Have Of Her: “People are always surprised or disappointed to find out I’m not that person (outrageous, brassy, trashy). But I could never be that crazy. I wasn’t brought up that way. No one could survive a life like that. Besides, I couldn’t handle the hangovers.” (Beaver County Times – Apr 9, 1997)

“People have said nice things about me…”

People have said nice things about me and incredibly nasty things about me, it’s hard for me – I won’t say it isn’t. But in this business, you can’t play it safe. You have to take a lot of risks. You have to take your lumps. You do your best. Some people are gonna love it, some people are gonna hate it, you know? That’s the game. (Stereo Review: June 1977)
