|The Divine Miss M in NYC
at a Ladies Who Lunch Benefit
She and Phaedra need to share hats!
Phaedra Parks just tweeted that she was sitting next to Bette Midler. Bette was in town shooting Parental Guidance (Previous working title They Call Me Artie). The movie is based on a story idea by Billy Crystal who stars as Artie. The movie also stars Marisa Tomei and child star Bailee Madison. In the movie, Billy Crystal’s character Artie deals with the generation gap when trying to care for his daughter’s kids while she is called away for work. According to Bette Midler’s tweets the movie wrapped today. As for how Phaedra managed to cross paths with the Divine Miss M, they were both at Hartsfield because Phaedra is on her way to NYC for tonight’s episode of WWHL with Andy Cohen, and the Divine One is headed home after a long movie shoot in Atlanta. Sounds like they were on the same flight! Parental Guidance did a lot of filming in the Alpharetta and Roswell area. It is scheduled for a November 2012 release date.
Can you just imagine Phaedra waltzing up to Bette Midler and introducing herself in the Delta Sky Club Lounge? Or sitting next to her on the plane? That would be an interesting flight!
