No, she does not admit to having an affair with Rivera.

In fact, she denied it.

She gave this interview 16 years ago and it was a big shrug, as it would have been in the '70's when it occurred.

Men kept up their deplorable behavior as there were no consequences.
this!!!!!

If you were drugged to the point something like that "could" happen how would you remember it. Was it filmed?

Sorry, back in the day, it was common knowledge they had an affair. She may be denying it now, but she sure didn't back then.

In a 1992 Ladies’ Home Journal interview, Midler opened up about the affair:

As for Geraldo, who wrote about their brief sexual encounter in his steamy autobiography, Exposing Myself, Midler declares—“Oh, he was a slimeball! If I had known then that he was going to do this twenty years later, I never would have given him the time of day.” (In truth, Geraldo speaks well of her. He writes admiringly of Bette’s voluptuous figure and sexual appetite.) “Actually, he was grotesque,” she continues. “I was very young—well, relatively young—and he and his producer pushed me into my own bathroom and broke two poppers under my nose and started to grope me. And I kept going, ‘What is this? What is this? What’s going on?’

"My friends say, of course, he was such a charmer, right after that I had to go to bed with him,” she says, laughing. “He pursued me all the way to Oklahoma.”



Bette didn't seem too concerned back in 1992 of her sexual encounter with Gerald, in fact she said she "had to go to bed with him" and laughed.

I don't like women who are diluting the real sexual assault and harassment stories. Bette seems to be co-opting the sexual assault narrative to get personal publicity.

Ick. I no more want to hear about Bette Midler's sex life than I do about my own mother's. I certainly hope Barbara Streisand won't feel the need to jump on this bandwagon as well.

Yes the man was considered a player and handsome by many. That doesnít mean he still wasnít sexually inappropriate with some women. His ego could of been so big, like trump he felt he could do what he wanted, when he wanted. Itís about power and control with these types of men, not about the subjective looks of the woman

Why do we care about Bette Midler and Heraldo Rivera? They're both old, washed-up celebrities from several decades ago. Yawn...
