Bette Midler once told Barbara Walters that Geraldo Rivera had groped her in the 1970s.
A video of the 1991 interview resurfaced Wednesday after Rivera defended TODAY show anchor Matt Lauer who was fired for alleged sexually inappropriate behavior.
Midler revealed the alleged incident to Walters after the veteran journalist asked about Rivera's claim that he and the stage star had a sexual encounter.
"Geraldo and his producer came to do an interview with me, in the Seventies, the early Seventies," Midler said. "And this was when he was very, sort of, hot. And he and his producer left the crew in the other room, they pushed me into my bathroom, they broke two poppers [the street terms for the recreational drug alkyl nitrite] and pushed them under my nose and proceed to grope me."
Walters cocked her head to the side and looked shocked as she asked, "Grope ... ?"
On the gross scale of 1 - 10 this is a 10. Yuck.
No, right on time.
I'm like Penn Jillette on this one: I grope as much as I want, which is none.
You, on the other hand, voted for the candidate that best matches your interests.
