Bette’s Part of the Fab Four

Our Ask Billy question comes from Jason in Miami: “Whatever happened to that movie that Bette Midler was making with Susan Sarandon and Megan Mullally?  You wrote about it a long time ago.  Is it still happening?”

Not only is it still happening, it’s in the can and coming out on August 1stThe Fabulous Four stars Bette Midler, Susan Sarandon, Megan Mullally and Sheryl Lee Ralph.  It actually only began filming last September.  It probably seems like a long time ago because it was announced in May of 2022.  Back then, Sissy Spacek was part of the cast.  At some point, she dropped out – opening the door for Miss Ralph.  The story is about three friends who travel to Key West to be bridesmaids at a friend’s wedding.  The bride being Midler, and the other three are her old college friends – which is odd because there’s over a decade between Mullally and Midler.  Maybe Megan was like a Sheldon Cooper/Doogie Howser situation.  Anyway, fingers crossed for a successful opening.


When we can go from the Fab Five to the Fabulous Four, we’ve definitely come to the end of yet another column.  I’d be remiss not to mention that this past weekend was also Boston Pride, and next weekend will be Stonewall Pride Wilton Manors.  While it looks like I’m missing all the fun, you can keep up with everything by checking out, the site that’s proud 365 days a year.  If you have a question you need answered, drop a note to and I promise to get back to you before we find out what else Jonathan Groff is full of.  So, until next time, remember, one man’s filth is another man’s bible.
