Bette Midler

I Got Nailed In Texas ... and It Hurt Like Hell

Everything's bigger in Texas ... including Bette Midler's big toe, which is now sporting a huge green bandage thanks to a pedicure gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Bette tweeted a pic of her aching piggie majorus a few days ago, adding ... "My New York toes don't love Texas cowboy boots."

But TMZ has learned the problem wasn't boots -- sources close to Bette tell us it was an ingrown toenail caused by a clueless manicurist who recently gave her a bad pedi.

Bette was in Dallas to make the keynote speech at the Jewish Family Service women's luncheon -- and we're told the pain was just too much, so she had the ingrown toenail removed ... (clap clap clap) deep in the heart of Texas.

Ironically, Bette's speech was about going green.

That isn't from a pedi going wrong that's from a toe nail repeatedly getting cut wrong eg not straight across (I've had 2ingrowns cut out)

Bette is still sexy and I would totally do her, jacked toenail and all, but then there is that whole Palestinian thing, so we would have to keep it a secret because i don't want to draw attention to that whole human rights violations thing.. ever compare a Palestinian rocket to an Israeli rocket? Ever go on youtube and actually see what is happening to the Palestinians? I always compare my desire for Bette to the Palestinian tanks and jets that fly over Israel, keeping the peace, wait... Ok, well Bette is still sexy even though Israel is a top human rights violator, maybe she should read the news and find out what is really going on, that would make her even more sexier, but.. F*ck Israel, and who wouldn't want to f*ck Bette Middler she is sexy as hell, even though she probably has no idea what Israel is doing to the Palestinians... Bette you there? This is a brave new world, you are not getting any younger get up to date and do something.. Action is very sexy, don't be afraid we need you in this fight, f*ck conventionalism, and who cares what your friends think.. you ( and a lot of us) may not be around that much longer.. save a life, save a people, and if you do so i might even be willing to kiss that nasty ass big toe..

I sympathize: ingrown toenails can be excruciatingly painful. Bette won't be wearing heels anytime soon, that's for sure. Bette is a comedy icon. Love her!

The big toe isn't the most of her worries. It looks like she's got a severe nail fungus. Her toes look like that of a zombie from The Walking Dead.

She's baaaack    

Ingrown toenail = staph infection. It's rampant in those places.

Get the surgery so you don't have ingrown toenails again. It's worth it. I used to suffer endlessly with those ingrown toenails until I had the operation. They numb your toes, then put a chemical down the sides of your nails that kills the nail cells.
