Bette Midler Kindaaaa Apologizes After Getting Heat For A Caitlyn Jenner Tweet

Bette Midler

Bette Midler found herself in some hot water over the weekend after sending a tweet about Caitlyn Jenner that many found to be "transphobic."

As you know, last week Caitlyn announced I Am Cait would not be coming back for a season three — and as response, the 70-year-old icon tweeted (and then deleted) on Saturday:

"Now that @IAmCait has been cancelled, will she go back to being Bruce? Will Kris take him back? Do I smell a re-wedding?!"

Well, what might've just been a poke at the former Olympian (as Bette often does) — many commenters believed Miz Midler's tone and use of the word "him" was insensitive to the trans community.

Idina Menzel has played some iconic characters over the years, but who would have guessed her next big role would be on Lifetime?

According to Deadline, the Frozen actress is set to star in a Lifetime remake of the 1988 film Beaches!

Taking the role of CC, played by Bette Midler in the original Garry Marshall classic, the 45-year-old will also take on the film's iconic songs Wind Beneath My Wings and The Glory of Love!

But that's not all — Menzel will also record additional songs for the contemporary remake, which is set for a 2017 premiere!

Beaches tells the story of two young girls, CC and Hillary, who share an unexpected and lifelong friendship.

Menzel's CC is an aspiring singer trying to make it in El Lay when she is discovered by a big time director.

The yet-to-be-cast Hillary, played by Barbara Hershey in the original version, is the daughter of a civil rights lawyer who searches to find her own destiny.

Not too many actresses can do justice to a character already played by Midler, but we think Idina is perfect for this role!

Are YOU excited for Lifetime's remake of Beaches?

Bette Midler Named Her Chickens After The Kardashians — Except Kim DIED!

R.I.P. Kim Chicken!

Damn. Bette Midler hasn't stopped throwing the Kardashians shade ever since Kim Kardashian West posted her nude selfie back in March!

On Wednesday, the iconic 70-year-old revealed in an interview that she actually named some of the chickens on her farm after the famous family…

Well, only to joke that the Kim of her coop died!

Savage!! LOLz!

Speaking at the New York Restoration Project's Spring Picnic, she revealed:

"We have the Kardashian sisters, actually, are our chickens. Kim died of a yeast infection. We had to get some different ones."

Fun fact, chickens can get yeast infections! So, maybe it was less shade and more of a factual statement from Bette, but we can't help but think Kimmy is gonna be annoyed!

If it makes the reality TV starlet feel any better though, Miz Midler actually tweeted about her Kardashian chickens back in 2011, years before any feud.

Clearly the actress was a fan from the start! Ch-ch-check that throwback tweet (below):
