He grabs Bette Midler’s boobs, beds every conceivable underling, and waxes about failing to have sex with Barbara Walters. I read it all so you didn’t have to.

Threesomes with young interns in the studio boiler room. Making out with a PA in front of an entire news crew. Receiving oral sex from the estranged wife of the Canadian prime minister in a Central Park rowboat. Read More

Geraldo Rivera apologizes to Bette Midler after groping allegations
Nick Romano December 01, 2017 AT 11:48 AM EST

Geraldo Rivera has offered an apology to Bette Midler in light of her resurfaced groping accusations, but he did not outright admit to any sexual misconduct.

“27 years ago I wrote a tawdry book depicting consensual events in 1973 — 45 years ago. I’ve deeply regretted its distasteful & disrespectful tone & have refrained from speaking about it — I’m embarrassed & profoundly sorry to those mentioned — I have & again apologize to anyone offended,” Rivera wrote in a series of tweets posted on Friday.

Here’s Bette Midler in 1991 Talking About Geraldo Rivera Drugging and Groping Her Without Consent
By Megan Reynolds
November 30, 2017

Fox News host Geraldo Rivera had a minor meltdown on Wednesday defending former NBC News host Matt Lauer, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women. “News is a flirty business,” Rivera wrote on Twitter. “It seems like [the] current epidemic of sex harassment allegations may be criminalizing courtship and conflating it [with] predation.” Read More

BetteBack March 29, 1996: Bette Midler On Geraldo Rivera

BetteGeraldo

Bette Midler. Tve been told that (Geraldo Rivera wrote in his autobio) that I was sexually ‘insatiable.’ Well, in my youth… I was a pretty hot number. And I slept with Geraldo. That is a completely humiliating thing to admit. I just deny I was ‘insatiable.'”

BetteBack September 6, 1991| Geraldo’s Memoir: Better Bed Than Wed

Geraldo’s Memoir: Better Bed Than Wed
The Washington Post
September 6, 1991 | Lloyd Grove

midler-geraldo

Geraldo, Geraldo, Geraldo! How could you?

Then again, being Geraldo, how could you not?

In his autobiography, “Exposing Myself,” to be released next week by Bantam Books, Geraldo Rivera reveals everything his public was dying to know about his alleged conquests of Bette Midler, Margaret Trudeau, Marian Javits and Chris Evert, his escapades with two “coeds” in a boiler room at ABC Television in Manhattan, and his mutual mauling by Mick Jagger and Rudolf Nureyev in the kitchen of his TriBeCa apartment.

BetteBack November 7, 1991: Geraldo Steamed At Midler Allegations

Elyria Chronicle Telegram
November 7, 1991

It seems that Geraldo Rivera is shocked, shocked tohear Bette Midler saying all those nasty things about him and what did or didn’t happen between them some 20 years ago. “Hey, calling me a rapist? What is that?” says a steamed Rivera. “I feel totally violated. … This is a terrible blow to my credibility.”

What Midler calls “interview rape,” Rivera maintains was a hot-and-heavy fling. “There were scores of witnesses. I have no idea why she suddenly turned so mean,” the talk-show host said. Read More

NEW YORK (AP) — Bette Midler, one of several women an American talk show host claims in his recent autobiography to have seduced, says the man drugged her and forced himself on her, a newspaper reported.

Sessums gave the interview to the “Entertainment Tonight,” an evening TV show that dwells on celebrity news and scandal. Read More

BetteBack September 6, 1991: Geraldo Tastelessly Bares His Sex Life

Madison Wisconsin State Journal
September 6, 1991

r-BETTE-MIDLER-GERALDO-large570

A middle-aged man brags about his sexual conquests … live, on the next Geraldo!

What? The man IS Geraldo?

That’s right — the syndicated talk show host has penned his autobiography, replete with tales of threesomes in an ABC-TV boiler room
and celebrity interviews that ended with Rivera bedding the interviewee.

Like this encounter with Bette Midler: “We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her
breasts. She loved it, and we fell into a passionate embrace.” Read More
