BetteBack January 28, 2000: “Isn’t She Great,” played in steamroller-diva style by Bette Midler

Didn’t she grate? What the midi skirt was to fashion, what the Village People were to music, what Rod McKuen was to verse, Jacqueline Susann‘s trashy potboilers were to the American novel: inexplicable relics of the 1970s whose main entertainment value today is provoking a chuckle at garage sales.

Susann chronicled the lives of pill-popping, bed-hopping, scenery-gnawing actresses and models in such classics as “Valley of the Dolls,” “The Love Machine” and “Once is Not Enough.” Now she’s back as the heroine of a camp biopic, “Isn’t She Great,” played in steamroller-diva style by Bette Midler.

BetteBack April 4, 1997: Rocky Mountain News – That Old Feeling

Rocky Mountain News (Denver, CO)
April 4, 1997 | Denerstein, Robert

I got that old feeling all right, a sinking sensation in the pit of the stomach that arrives when I see a movie slipping away.

Too bad because I enjoy Bette Midler and have liked the work of Dennis Farina, the stars of That Old Feeling, a romantic comedy that tries for a slapdash feel. Midler and Farina play battling former spouses who haven’t spoken to each other in 14 years.

That’s all about to change. Because their daughter (Paula Marshall) plans to marry, they’ll have to rub elbows at the wedding. The scene is set for arch comedy, but the movie has something further in mind: It reunites the feuding couple, even though both have remarried. Old passions simmer, and Mom and Pop wind up in a grope session in a parking lot outside the reception. Read More

BetteBack February 23, 1996: Bette Midler Guests On Wynonna’s Revelations

Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN)
February 23, 1996 | Bream, Jon

hqdefault

Wynonna has a tendency to let other redheads upstage her.

On “Revelations,” her first TV special as a solo artist, the country star is upstaged not by her mom, Naomi Judd, but by her year-old son, Elijah, and guest Bette Midler. (OK, they’re strawberry blondes, though only their hairdressers know for sure.)

Midler does a solo number as well as a duet of her classic “The Rose” with Wynonna. Midler’s natural hamminess onstage coaxes a less than wacky Wy into an impromptu hula during “Ukulele Lady.” But it’s little Elijah who warms hearts by crawling onto the stage while his mom sings “My Angel Is Here,” underlining the meaning of the song.

BetteBack: I Want To Be Alone

Roswell (N.M.) Daily Record
No rest for the weary
Tuesday, August 2, 1983

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Singer Bette Midler was getting so much attention in the hospital that it ruined her rest, so “the Divine Miss M” has gone into seclusion to recover from exhaustion, her manager says.

The raucous pop singer, whose slogan is “trash with flash,” collapsed off stage last week during a concert in Pontiac, Mich.

“She’s just in seclusion and resting comfortably, but her doctor says she ought to rest for at least this week,” her manager, Ramon Hervey, said Monday. He said Ms. Midler is not hospitalized, but declined to say where she is “for security purposes.” Read More
