Pink is not shy to admit that she and fellow singer Christina Aguilera have had their problems — so much so that they almost came to blows.

The pop star, 38, told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that while the two have made amends since their feud in the early 2000s, their relationship was very rocky.

“We were super young and super new at the whole thing, and I think I’m an alpha, and she’s an alpha,” Pink said of their feud during the “Plead the Fifth” segment. Read More

Hugh Hefner: Why Lionize A Pig?

The Nation
Feminism, Not Hugh Hefner, Liberated Sex

Even in death, Hugh Hefner—who died in late September at the age of 91—continues to be a creep. As he arranged way back in 1992, he’ll be buried next to Marilyn Monroe, whose nude photos he published without her consent or knowledge in the first issue of Playboy. The male-gazer in chief sleeps eternally next to the world’s most fetishized sex object. The ancient toad who bullied a harem of grossed-out would-be starlets rests beside the ill-used beauty who was smart, kind, well-read, didn’t have an orgasm until the end of her life, and described herself as a “sexless sex goddess.” If only Marilyn could get up and go lie down next to someone else.

BetteBack February 13, 1975: Cher comes back – A TV Review

Appleton Post Crescent
February 13, 1975

cher-320

Once upon a time there lived a couple named Sonny and Cher.

Their names went together as well as salt and pepper, bacon and eggs or spareribs and sauerkraut.

Sonny and Cher were not your average couple. They did things most couples never do, such as recording hit songs and naming their daughter Chastity. Later, they had a hit television show.

More recently upon a time, Sonny ” and Cher decided “for better or worse” did not mean “till death us do part,” and they decided to divorce. Read More

BetteBack February 6, 1975: Critics Get A Preview Of The Cher Special

San Mateo Times

There is no question that when Sonny Bono started his “Sonny Comedy Hour” he missed Cher.

The absence of Cher was one of the real reasons for the show failing to make it through the season.

Not only did Sonny’s show lack writing, it lacked comedy.

Next Wednesday night, Cher will try it on her own. This show, a special designed to kick off her new series, came off much better than did Sonny’s solo venture in television.

It was the presence of Cher that made the old “Sonny and Cher Show” a success. The girl can wear clothes like a high fashion model. Read More

Q.  Is the Bette Midler movie, “The Divine Mr. J,” going to play on TV? J.B.,- Easton, Conn

A. Bette Midler had a very small role in the film, which falls into the category of ridiculous, dirty – mouthed camp, according to those who reviewed the low – budget film. It seems unlikely it will be shown on TV.

Nathan Lane felt instant chemistry with Bette Midler on the set of Isn’t She Great, which he shot this summer.

Midler plays Valley Of The Dolls author, Jaqueline Susann and Lane is cast as her husband, Irving Mansfield.

“You know what I call Bette?” Lane said, laughing. Feisty Spice. That’s my nickname for her. I think we were destined to work together.  We had so many laughs and she’s so funny. There were days she would kill me, she was so funny. We were like an old married couple. We were like the battling Bickersons the way we would carry on. She’s wonderful.” Read More
