Once again, Bette Midler said something on Twitter that is not amusing to some people. The Divine Miss M is no fan of Donald Trump, and that’s a sentiment that extends to his wife Melania. On Wednesday, Bette trolled the First Lady of the United States on Twitter and it didn’t go over well with some.
If anyone has seen some shit, it’s Jenifer Lewis. “The Mother Of Black Hollywood” was the OG Effie White in Dreamgirls before they handed the part to Jennifer Holiday when it moved to Broadway. Jenifer has been in Murphy Brown, The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, and was even Whitney Houston’s mother in The Preacher’s Wife. Honestly, I would have that as the top item of my resume and just rest on my laurels, but Jenifer is still at it – playing the grandma on black-ish and being pretty frank about coping with bipolar disorder and sex addiction. It sounds like Kanye West’s people see how Jenifer is one bad ass chick, and they want her to impart her wisdom on the dude who signs their checks.
Today’s cackle from Calabasas comes to you courtesy of a Bette Midler tweet gone oh-so-very wrong. Bette is normally a fiery presence on Twitter, and dragged Kim Kardashian for filth a few years back by saying if she wanted to take a selfie to show parts we hadn’t seen, she’d have to swallow the camera.

You would think that remaking what is arguably (to me at least) the best movie about witchcraft would be the sort of thing that would surely curse a person for life. But apparently someone at the Disney Channel isn’t afraid of a spooky black cat slipping into their office and spiking their latte with a little eye of newt. Deadline says that the Disney Channel has decided to remake the 1993 Halloween classic Hocus Pocus as a TV movie.
The 2017 Tonys had only one job to do and that was to give us Bette Midler yodeling out a song from Hello Dolly! That didn’t happen. Thirty five layers of NOT AMUSED swept across my face when I realized that the rumors about Bette not performing at the Tonys were true. The phones at CBS’ offices probably exploded from mad bitches demanding a damn refund of their time when the performance from Hello Dolly! turned out to be Niles Crane singing a boring song in front of a boring curtain. But Bette Midler kind of made up for it when she shut down the orchestra who dared try to play her away from the mic.
