Mind you, at the time, Rivera was a correspondent for the Walters-hosted 20/20, so it seems Walters wasn't in the business in shielding the wrongdoings of her male co-workers necessarily.

"Tomorrow is my birthday", she tweeted.

"Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed", Lauer said.

Midler came to prominence at the start of the '70s, which included the release of her debut album "The Divine Miss M".

But Ridley, who splashed onto the screens as the orphaned and Jedi power possessing Rey, does not see herself carrying on the force for the next 10 to 20 years.

In the interview, Midler hesitates, then details a "very unpleasant" encounter with Rivera and his producer in the early 1970s involving a chemical popular at the time for giving a powerful high.

Recently, Rivera came under fire after he called the news business "flirty" in the wake of Lauer's ouster over sexual misconduct allegations.

"I did not offer myself up on the altar of Geraldo Rivera", said Midler, calling his behavior "unseemly". "We were in the bathroom, preparing for the interview, and at some point I put my hands on her breasts", he wrote in Exposing Myself.

Rivera later apologized for his comments about Lauer.

It caused damage to public buildings, pipes and monuments, most notably the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument. The station also writes that Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS, says there is potential for aftershocks.

In Midler's words, Rivera and his producer pushed her into a bathroom, broke two "poppers" (inhalant alkyl nitrate drugs), pushed them under her nose and proceeded to grope her. Big-bucks settlements mean some people might be motivated by "more than justice", he said. "Geraldo may have apologized for his tweets supporting Matt Lauer, but he has yet to apologize for this".

Fox News also weighed in on his tweets, saying in a statement to the Washington Post, "we were troublef by his comments and are addressing them with him". That moment, in and of itself, is a chilling reminder that even women as notoriously strong willed as Midler fear they might be the ones to get in trouble for speaking out about the wrong doings of powerful men.

Just as Rivera tweeted his thoughts, however, a video featuring footage from a 1991 Bette Midler interview began buzzing around the internet.

Fox has dismissed two high-profile men over sexual misconduct allegations involving their behavior while at the news channel, host Bill O'Reilly in April and CEO Roger Ailes, who was sacked in 2016 and died earlier this year.
