Bette Midler

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

EXCLUSIVE

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.

I'm old enough to remember that Bette started her career exposing her body in shows with cross dressers. She was a whorish woman then and continued to use her sexuality to promote herself. Now she's old and ugly, so the only way she can get a man/woman is because she has money. Money that she made by bedding the right people in Hollywood. Now her toe is as big as her ego and infected like her brain.

Have diabetes and one of the things you have to be very careful of is your feet. Heard to many bad stories of diabetics having pedis and then getting very bad infections. A

Used to get them all the time, had a nail fungus. Been using Tea Tree Oil and cleaning my nail and bed with bleach. Has stopped the problem, when going to a pedi, insist on them using bleach in the water. No more fungus and have no more ingrown toe nails.

Used to have ingrown toenails and fungus . Got rid of the fungus and now have no more ingrown toenails. When I go to get a pedi I insist on them putting bleach in the water and have a treatment I made up. It is great and my toenails are beautiful now.

They are butchers in that state. I'm surprised they didn't arrest her for accepting the LGBT community even long before it was mainstream.
