I caught Bette on Rachael Ray yesterday and they were talking about this saying that she wished they had got the chance to do it not long after the original movie. I for one would love to see the sequel as adore this movie.
Actress Bette Midler wants to reunite with Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton for a sequel to 1996 comedy movie The First Wives’ Club.
The trio played three spurned women who seek revenge on the husbands who left them for younger women, in the comedy hit.
Midler insists Hollywood sexism prevented them from making a follow-up sooner, but she’s not given up hope – and is hoping to bring the story up to date on the big screen.
The star says, “I really do regret the fact that we didn’t get to do a sequel earlier and it’s funny when women have a big success, they say, ‘Ah, it’s a fluke’, but when men have a big success they bring a sequel straight out. We had a huge hit but then they couldn’t get it together for a sequel, it wasn’t organised enough to get it done again. So it really broke my heart.
“I was actually thinking in the shower the other day, has it been too long? Will people remember? It’s been two generations! I think if they got it together I think the crowd would come out for it, I really do.”
