Bette Midler On Jinxed: “I never knew it got so ugly.

Bette Midler On Jinxed: “I never knew it got so ugly. I never knew it got down to such mudslinging. It was an enormously painful experience, but it was pain about something as trivial as a movie. A movie is basically a piece of fluff and entertainment.” (Boca Raton, March 13, 1983) – Bette Midler

BetteBack June 19, 1994: What Happened To Ken Wahl From ‘Jinxed’?

Burlington Times News
June 19, 1994

5140449634_3e1ec2899a

Q: What happened to that gorgeous hunk Ken Wahl, who used to play on the series “ Wiseguy ”? Is there any explanation for his disappearance from the celebrity scene?—Tammy Borah, Sacramento, Calif

A: ln an industry chockablock with tempestuous personalities, Ken Wahl, 38, stands out for his talent for picking fights with influential people. While filming “Jinxed!” in 1982 with superstar Bette Midler, Wahl said he had to make himself think of his dog every time he was asked to kiss Midler. And after three seasons on “Wiseguy,” he left the TV show in 1990 because of ‘creative differences” with megaproducer Stephen J. Cannoli. Besides these gaffes, the actor blames his “disappearance” on a motorcycle crash in 1992 in Malibu that, he says, left him in a coma—though the police have no record of the accident. Today, Wahl accepts small roles in movies while seeking a chance for a comeback. ‘The Favor,” his latest release, actually was filmed in 1990. His most recent starring role was in “Search for Grace,” a TV movie shown on CBS last month. Wahl is divorced from Corinne Alphen, 39, a former “Penthouse” Pet of the Year. They have a son, Raymond, IO. Read More

Bette Midler On Jinxed

Bette Midler On Jinxed: “I was not the prima donna that I was made out to be, that I was responsible and that I could do the work. I think people finally know what to offer me, what will suit me. These last three pictures have shown that comedy is my strongest suit. If you want broad, get Bette.” (The Milwaukee Sentinel – Jan 23, 1987)

Bette Midler On Regretting Her Choice To Become A Film Star:

Bette Midler On Regretting Her Choice To Become A Film Star: “When I tried to put my own spin on ‘Jinxed’ I was completely trashed as someone who didn’t know what she was doing. That was a terrible lesson to learn. I totally disintegrated. I didn’t want to get involved anymore. I just wanted to do the job, get paid, and then go home.” (Beaver County Times – Apr 9, 1997)

and talking about her work. Read More
