Bette Midler 'Glee' Rumor: Actress 'Still Waiting' For Invitation From Ryan Murphy

Hey, Ryan Murphy, Bette Midler is still waiting for a "Glee" invite!

Midler spoke to "Access Hollywood" about guest starring on "Glee," saying she is "still waiting" to hear from co-creator Murphy.

"[Ryan Murphy] never called me,” Midler told "Access Hollywood" of a possible "Glee" role. “He mentioned it, but ... I’m still waiting for the call. But, it’s fine!”

Murphy first broached the possibility of Midler appearing on the Fox show during the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Awards in October. “Ryan was also honored that night and he said [in his speech], ‘If Bette Midler’s in the house I want to invite her onto ‘Glee,’” she told "Access Hollywood" on Friday. “And I went, ‘OK!’”

Midler offered up some ideas for roles, like Sue Sylvester's (Jane Lynch) "evil sister" or Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) grandmother.

This is not the first time Murphy has used an awards show to reel in hopeful guest stars.

At the 2011 Golden Globes, Murphy invited actress Anne Hathaway to appear on the show after she had expressed interest in a guest spot.

"She walked by our table and we have a mutual friend and I said, 'Do you really want to do it?' And she said, 'I do.' And I said, 'OK, we're gonna do it,'" Murphy told "Access Hollywood" last January. "I think we'll do it probably in a month and a half or so ... I have to talk to Anne about what she wants to sing. I'm sure she has ideas. I'm excited about that."

Alas, Hathaway never heard from Murphy, either. "And I never heard from him again," she told Pop Sugar in August 2011. "Ryan Murphy, I'm calling you out: I want to be on 'Glee.' I've got my songs picked out."

This season, celebs like Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker joined the "Glee" cast.
