Last night at a charity event for God’s Love We Deliver, honoree Ryan Murphy took a few minutes on stage to ask party attendee Bette Midler if she would appear on Glee. Luckily, Murphy and Midler live blogged the negotiations via their respective Twitter accounts:

Murphy: “I just asked the incredible Bette Midler to be on Glee in front of 1,000 people. I hope she says yes!
Midler: “And from the stage, @ryanmurphy invited me to guest on @Glee! I should get out more!!”
Murphy: “Bette said yes! Amazing. I am plotting…who should she play?”
Midler: “Ok, @rpmurphy, I have one vote for Rachel’s grandmother…hmmmm. I’m thinking, I’m thinking!!”

Well, Gleeks, who should Midler play? Also, now that Sarah Jessica Parker is on the show, can we get a Hocus Pocus reunion by bringing along Kathy Najimy? Or even a First Wives Club reunion? Get Goldie and Diane, stat Murphy! Just a thought!
