Geraldo Responds to Bette Midler After She Said Sex with Him Wasn’t Great

In his 1992 biography, among the revelations Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera disclosed was that he had slept with 1,000 women at a young age. Among his conquests was actress Bette Midler. Asked about her sexual adventure with Rivera, Midler said that the experience was “nothing to write home about.”

In 1992, Midler tore into Rivera after she read how she was depicted in his autobiography, calling the journalist “grotesque” and a “slime ball.” Asked about the affair on CNN in 2011, Midler said simply, “ew.”

Rivera recently sat down with TheBlaze host Will Cain where he was asked to respond to Midler’s slam. “I swore after the reaction that she had to the book that I would never again speak of her in those terms,” Rivera said. “But I will say that she was a fantastic entertainer, still is.”
