Kathy Griffin says Hollywood abandoned her except for a few including Bette Midler and Jim Carey

EW
Kathy Griffin says Hollywood abandoned her
DEREK LAWRENCE
April 03, 2018

After her infamous photo with a bloody facsimile of Donald Trump’s severed head, Kathy Griffin believes Hollywood abandoned her, refusing to extend a lifeline that she desperately needed.

Last May, the comedian became embroiled in a controversy that sparked a two-month federal investigation when images were released of her holding a fake decapitated head resembling the president. Since then, she lost her New Year’s Eve cohosting job on CNN and found it difficult to book stand-up gigs. And on Tuesday’s episode of The Howard Stern Show, Griffin — who apologized and then backtracked on her mea culpa — further addressed the fallout and the lack of support she received. Read More

BetteBack April 24, 1975: It’s a glossier Bette Midler who’s back in the Big Apple (‘Clams’)

Middletown Times Herald
April 24, 1975

2016-07-14_1-44-22

NEW YORKBette Midler, the tackiest girl in town, has come home to roost at the tackiest theater on Broadway, the Minskoff. She opened last week with her “Clams on the Half Shell Revue,” and proved that it’s oysters that produce pearls, not clams.

The show begins with the overture from “Oklahoma!” — which is not a bad way to open a show. At least it once worked quite well for “Oklahoma!? It then moves straight into a scene from “Showboat.” Read More

‘Bring back the bush!’ Bette Midler asks women to reclaim hair down there

Mister D: I hope people on the site can contain themselves better than some of those on Facebook. What I saw as a funny, innocuous statement by Miss has caused a stir from some. Some of the things said on Facebook were that Bette was tasteless (obvi new fans, it’s none of her business, there are more important things to talk about (I’m sure we’re not saturated enough with talk of Trump as it is. People don’t realize the extent of our problems in the US, but you can bet people can describe Donald’s last shit), to Miss M has gone too far left or that’s just more of that nasty lib talk (Personally, I thought pubic hair was a bipartisan issue. I’m sure my long time readers won’t ever see the need to respond, they’ll just enjoy the fact that Bette brought it up. Personally I think the bald look on men and women as kind of disturbing in a weird way. It makes you look like a plucked chicken. I like my men natural. Give me that any day, but I wouldn’t turn away a bald one either. I guess it’s just personal preference, but really do we have to argue about it? Really? Read More

What Weird New Behavior Will Donald Trump Display At The National Championship Game? And What’s The Deal With Trump And Midler?

Deadspin
What Weird New Behavior Will Donald Trump Display At The National Championship Game?
By David Roth
Jan 9, 2018

A year and change into his first term in office, it’s still honestly kind of hard to tell why Donald Trump ran for president. At this point, we know enough about him to assume both 1) that it had nothing to do with any of the reasons he offered on the campaign trail and 2) that it’s probably something exponentially dumber than the most stupid possible guess. There is, knowing what we know about our big wet-boy-in-chief, every reason to assume that he ran for president because he wanted to put Bette Midler in a Supermax prison because she criticized him in Page Six back in 1991. But there is also every reason to assume it’s something even dumber, pettier, and more tragically dated than that. Read More

Written by Daniel Villarreal on December 20, 2017

You might’ve heard that U.S. President Donald Trump was recently added to Disney World’s Hall of Presidents attraction in its Orlando, Florida theme park. Naturally, folks on Twitter started mocking the Trump Hall of Presidents statue shortly after its unveiling, both because the statue looks terrifying and because the man it represents is so hideous in his own ways.

The Year When Bette Stormed Broadway, and Trump ‘Died’ in Central Park: NYC Theater in 2017

The Year When Bette Stormed Broadway, and Trump ‘Died’ in Central Park: NYC Theater in 2017

The best NYC theater of 2017 spanned Bette Midler in ‘Hello Dolly,’ Jake Gyllenhaal in Sondheim, and Tony Kushner telling The Daily Beast he was planning a play about Donald Trump.

It is rare for theater to make the news.

CBS may give one Sunday a year over to the Tony Awards (and here is what won what this year), but these celebrate the best of Broadway; theater made as safe and glittery as possible. Any edge is left to the winners’ speeches and hosts’ japing. Read More

BetteBack April 12, 1975: Bette’s Back Big Time

Emporia Gazette
Bette’s Back
By Craig Zadan
April 12, 1975

97251524

THE CRUSH of bridge chairs forms a circle surrounding a large grand piano which is being pounded into a soulful vamp. Thirteen black gospel singers begin bellowing “Gone at Last,” a new Paul Simon song written just for the occasion, and three of the sleasiest-looking girls this side of Eighth Avenue join them in harmony. As the song builds momentum, a red-haired Lilliputian in clashing purple dance tights and brown knee-high boots skitters across the circle segueing the song into a crisp arrangement of “Higher and Higher.” Arms flailing, body gyrating, she hits the top note and the number climaxes.
