33. Bette Midler

Best-known episode: "The Understudy"
Of course the star of Broadway's Rochelle, Rochelle: The Musical had to be the Divine Miss M! If anyone could embody that sassy title character and her strange, erotic journey from Milan to Minsk, it's Midler. In an episode based on the 1994 Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan scandal, Midler is injured during a softball game and ends up in the hospital. But even there, she is nothing short of a grand dame, wearing a luxurious, feather-collared blue robe in her hospital bed, while Kramer caters to her every whim. JENNY ELISCU
