Geraldo Rivera Apologizes For 'Embarrassing' Bette Midler

Since then, an interview with Bette Midler from 1991, in which she describes an encounter with Rivera after the reporter wrote in his autobiography that he had a "torrid affair" with the singer and she was sexually "insatiable", has resurfaced online.

Lauer was sacked on Wednesday after being accused of "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace", NBC News Chairman Andy Lack said.

Rivera also suggested that accusations of sexual harassment should have a shorter statute of limitations and require corroboration, saying that some accusers are motivated by prospective financial gain. He also said that allegations should be made in a "timely fashion".

One day later, Rivera, 74, tweeted an apology after receiving backlash for his comments.

Aside from speaking about Rivera's nonchalant attitude, Twitter users also wrote to Midler to discuss how women are taught not to react or express pain after being assaulted, especially if much time has passed.

His posts came in the wake of a tweet on Thursday by Bette Midler renewing an allegation of being drugged and groped by Rivera and his producer colleague in the 1970s. He later apologized for the comments, stating, "Harassers are deviants who deserve what is coming to them".

After Walters appeared dumbfounded over her claim, Midler reiterated her statement. "And this was when he was very, sort of, hot".

"Grope?" Walters asks, looking surprised.

Midler nodded and said, "Groped me". "I did not alter myself up on the altar of Geraldo Rivera", saying that "his behavior was unseemly". "He was... he was unseemly".

Walters, asking about a passage in the book "in which he said you and he had a torrid sexual affair and you were insatiable", urged Midler to "get in a little trouble" talking about it. The Daily Beast summarizes the critical consensus of his 1991 memoir titled, naturally, Exposing Myself, as "the definitive work on how men behave inappropriately in the workplace under the guise of courtship". "I feel like this video was a gift from the universe to me", she tweeted.

Hours after Lauer's firing, the show-business publication Variety published a detailed account of allegations against him based on interviews with women who said he victimized them.
