Suck It, Sandy! Bette Midler Makes Sure The Spooky Show Goes On!

| Filed under: Party Poppin'Bette MidlerHalloween

No stinkin' hurricane will bring this lovely rose down!

Bette Midler wasn't going to let the devastation of Sandy deter all the efforts she's made in raising awareness for her charity, Bette Midler's New York Restoration Project.

Dressed as the ghost of Coco Chanel, Bette made the decision that the show MUST go on and held her annual Halloween party last night at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel in NYC.

And if anything, she had even better reason to host the event considering how important her fight to improve green spaces around the city is.

At last night's party, she said:

"We had no idea that this was gonna happen of course, that we were gonna have the devastation of Sandy. But there's never been a time where our organization is needed more. We clean up parks and open spaces and gardens in neighborhoods that have no resources. So I'm really glad that we are here."

Indeed! And many New Yorkers will be happy to know that her efforts will not go to waste, especially considering she raised an impressive $1.8 million in one evening.

Wonderful work, Bette! As always, you're an inspiration and we know that when it comes to powerful forces, the diva always wins!!

    so, Leanna Rimes is insensitive and ignorant because she dressed up as a character from a movie who happens to have the same name as hurricane Sandy but you have the right to title your article "suck it, sandy"? sure Perez.

    Re: whatever – Leanna is also magically offensive despite the fact that Pink and Gwen Stefani also dressed as Sandy from Grease.

    Go for it Bette. Don't let the small stuff stop you from confronting anything real that has happened in the last 24 hours.
    After President Coward leaves the NY area what really happens?
    Yeah that 'Red Tape' is all gone now…New Jersey Turns Away Non-union Relief Crews.
    Relief crews from Alabama who were specifically called to New Jersey, found themselves diverted to Long Island, NY after they arrived because they use non-union labor.
    Alabama is a right-to-work state.
    We all create our own heaven and hell they say. vote out the demons on Tuesday!!!

    Waiting on Oblowme to show leadership and tell the unions to "waive" the requirement because lives are in danger…everything he touches turns to shit.

    Re: luvs2hustle – you do know that Gov Chris Christie, one of Obama's biggest critics and NOT a fan of the Pres has been praising his leadership and efforts non-stop right? One of your own who hates Obama can't deny all the help he's providing. Doesn't that tell you anything?
