BetteBack May 14, 1975: ‘Clams’ Does Nothing But Entertain

“Clams on the Half Shell,” Minskoff Theatre — The Divine Miss M (Bette Midler) in her new self-styped “taste-free” revue does nothing but ENTERTAIN. The show opens with a very well executed overture consisting of a medley from “Oklahoma!” An all-black chorus sings “Old Man River” while pulling in fish nets which dredge up a huge clam shell in which Miss M. is ensconced.

Hence the revue’s name.

FROM THAT moment on, she is in complete control — singing, dancing, chatting with the audience and telling jokes. (“McDonald’s is featuring a new Hearstburger — no Patty.” or “I know what a bisexual is, but what’s a bicentennial?” Read More

NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

By SERGEI KLEBNIKOV
July 11, 2017

Rich guys are a dime a dozen these days—according to Forbes, 87 of the 100 richest Americans are male.

But in some instances, they rank a distant second behind their spouses. Using calculations from Celebritynetworth.com, MONEY selected well-known celebrity couples in which the wives out-earn their husbands. The site uses a variety of sources to come up with a celebrity’s total value of assets held, including film or TV salaries, business investments, sponsorships, real estate deals, as well as any liabilities that can be found, before taking out a final estimate for taxes.

Such is the case with one of her latest Snapchat photos which offers a brief—albeit screen shot-worthy—list of people Kardashian plans on sending her newly launched KKW Kimoji Hearts Fragrances to.

Pink Reveals Christina Aguilera Tried to Punch Her: ‘She Swung at Me in a Club’

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
By Katha Pollitt
October 5, 2017

2017-10-03_8-04-27

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
