Midler on the word “Diva”: “You know, I popularized that word diva.

Midler on the word “Diva”: “You know, I popularized that word diva. But I think that term is misused now. Every other filly out of the gate is called a diva nowadays. And you know what? They ain’t divas to me!” And I do not like the competition! Not that I have any.” (1991, Los Angeles Times) – Bette Midler

    BetteBack October 22, 1974: The Disasterous Roast Of Johnny Carson

    Star News
    October 22, 1974

    140755311

    Johnny Carson explained to Filmland friends Saturday evening. .”I’ve married three times because, as a concerned American . I’ve wanted to spread the wealth more evenly among the populace.”

    And that was about the funniest line to come out of The Friars’ Club Charity Roast honoring “The King Who Rules Midnight.”

    Perhaps never have so many comedians laid such a massive quantity of eggs as were hatched at the dais ol the Grand Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel Saturday evening. The head table consisted of a multimillion dollars worth of talent — including Lucille Ball, George Burns. Red Buttons., Buddy Hackett. Bob Hope. Alan King, Bette Midler. Jan Murray. Carroll O’Connor. Burt Reynolds and Don Rickles. yet by the end of the program even the professional comedians who are usually each other’s most appreciative audience’ had trouble not lookhig bored.

    HOLLYWOOD (UPI> – Hold it! That EJvis Presley tape cartridge you’re playing on your stereo outfit may well be bootlegged.

    If you paid only $2.50-*3.50 for that Presley- or Bette Midler 8-track tape then it almost certainly is a pirated product.

    The United States Attorney’s Office says one out of every three tape cartridges is as hot as the Watergate recordings although considerably less earth-shaking.

    Diet Brown, an assistant U.S. attorney in Los Angeles, recently won conviction against a man named Richard Taxe in a multimillion dollar tape bootlegging operation trial. Read More

    Bette Midler On Hollywood’s Emphasis On Youth And Beauty:

    Bette Midler On Hollywood’s Emphasis On Youth And Beauty: “The movies are guilty of this as well. That’s why I don’t go to many films anymore. I don’t like what the industry is selling. For the most part the Hollywood studio products have as much nutrition as cotton candy. They’re like a McDonald’s burger.” (Daily Record, Sept.25, 1996)
