Since landing the lead in the revival of Hello, Dolly! on Broadway, Bette Midler said so long dearie to 30 pesky pounds.

The strategy worked — not only did the 71‑year-old legend scoop up a Best Actress Tony, Star’s insider reveals that Bette is considering a stint as a “Silver Sneakers” fitness guru:
“She’s loving her new size so much, she’s thinking about writing a wellness book targeted at senior women.”
