It’s very quiet backstage at the megahit Broadway musicalHello, Dolly!” — Bette Midler is refusing to speak to anyone! “Bette does not talk when she is offstage,” an insider told Radar. “Bette is on total vocal rest when she is not performing. Doing seven shows a week in a role as big as ‘Dolly’ is very straining on her vocal cords, and the only way she can give everything on stage is to be silent when she is off. She’s a total professional, and everyone in her cast understands.” So dont come knocking on her dressing room door wanting to chat!

Bette Midler, Cate Blanchett and Kevin Kline provide some A-list glamour to this year’s nominations, but there’s no love for Amelie and Significant Other At the Tony awards this year, a comet, a groundhog, deplaned travelers and alienated teenagers will duke it out for best musical. This morning, Jane Krakowski and Christopher Jackson announced the nominations for the 2017 Tony awards, a list that was predictable in some ways (had Bette Midler not received a nod for Hello, Dolly! riots would have ensued) and surprising in others, particularly concerning new musicals that went mostly or entirely ignored.

No one else had a lousy 14.4K modem or a measly ten-inch monitor or a ribbon printer. I wanted a machine that could not only download Bette Midler pictures but scan them as well. Of course I wanted to go to CompUSA! An hour later my dad and I were standing in the hallowed parking lot, and as he moved his toolbox to make room in the trunk for a potential purchase, he warned me that we would have to be on the lookout for a very good deal. If there wasn't a good deal, then maybe we wouldn't get a computer today at all. I nodded to let him know I understood the gravity of the situation. I knew my dad, and I would fundamentally disagree on which computer to get, as I would want the most glittering, pointlessly expensive machine available, and he would want whatever "made sense." We had everything and nothing in common. Once in the store my father silently paced around the home-computing section for over an hour while an eager, commissioned sales kid tailed behind, attempting to decipher his emotions.

It only takes one look at the scorched Twitter accounts of Chloë Grace Moretz and Bette Midler to understand that Kim Kardashian is fully capable of defending herself against the haters. In fact, shutting down the BS is something of a sport for the famous family, whose every move seems to elicit controversial reactions on the daily. So its no surprise that Piers Morgan , of all people, is the next in line to try and take Kardashian down. After taking a swipe at the mother-of-two over unretouched bikini photos earlier this week, the British TV personality is at it again with a new article in the Daily Mail about how hes reached his limit with all things Kardashian. Are there valid criticisms to be had about the KarJenners regarding what they promote and represent in our culture? Sure. But Morgans article titled Kim has hit rock bottom and I no longer wish to keep up takes it to the extreme by painting Kardashian as a cultural mastermind bent on corrupting our children and capitalizing off a traumatic experience for her own benefit.
