Bette Midler let it all hang out on a recent appearance on “The Joy Behar Show”. When asked about a sexual encounter she had with Geraldo Rivera years ago she said in part, “Ew… It was nothing to write home about”. Geraldo admitted he’d slept with over a thousand women in a memoir published in 1991.  Among his conquests: Bette, Liza Minelli, Judy Collins and tennis great Chris Evert.  

- Bette also admitted that Geraldo suffered from flatulance… giving her the idea for the song, “Wind Beneath My Wings”.

- So Geraldo can say one thing that Liza Minelli’s ex-husband David Gest can’t: He actually had sex with her!

- These days, the only women whose names are associated with Geraldo are hurricanes.
