Episode Summary

The Invisible Mom
Bette finds a letter in the recycling bin, and shows up at Rose's school as a volunteer mom on the same day Olivia Newton-John is helping out. Olivia spends the day avoiding Bette, since (unknown to Bette) Olivia's held a grudge ever since Bette locked her up while she was supposed to be at an audition for "Grease." After fending off the head of the school, who's trying to solicit a screenplay, Bette notices that Rose got her belly-button pierced, much to her mother's dismay. Meanwhile, Connie shows up to get some promotional CDs autographed and winds up spending the day in the girls bathroom doling out advice to the adolescents.moreless

  • In sneaks a good episode.

    Just when we're working on our eulogies for the demise of the tv series "Bette", someone force sneaks in and gives us something to cheer about.

    But don't stop writing those words of endearment yet....If history is any indicator, this is just a nice stop on the way to the impound lot.

    First, after Olivia Newton-John's successful battle against breast-cancer, it's wonderful to see her anywhere.

    Secondly, Bette gets more chances to play off of actresses with roles that are seen as traditionally the straight man.....but Joanna Gleason and Newton-John both turn in wonderfully funny performances.

    I'm thinking that Olivia must have brought in writers with her, as this is far above the muck and tripe that the regular writers have been offering.moreless
