  Judith Timson: Canadian politics is now a culture of lies and insults I used to be pretty good at insulting people, especially people I didn’t know. Once, when I was a supposedly mature woman, I was driving my car with a friend when some young punks in another car cut me off. I rolled down my window and yelled at the teenage driver: “Are we out in Daddy’s car?” He flipped me off and my friend and I laughed and went home for tea. I don’t do that anymore. It’s too dangerous.

Bette Midler was so exhausted by her initial run in Broadway musical Hello, Dolly!, she needed several months to recover from the trying production.

The Beaches star won a Tony Award for her leading role in the 2017 show revival, but performing day in, day out proved to be tougher than the 72-year-old entertainer had expected, and she was really struggling by the end of her run in January (18).

"I had a year's run, did 242 performances," she recalled on breakfast show Good Morning America.

"I was very, very, very, very tired. I literally crawled off the stage the last performance, but I had a few months to recover."

People put their heart and soul into this production..."
