Bette Mi­dler chal­lenges Kim Kar­dashian to use her naked selfie for char­ity

The Star (St. Lucia) - - ENTERTAINMENT - By Meera Ja­gan­nathan NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Kim Kar­dashian should turn that mir­ror shot into a money shot, says her new neme­sis Bette Mi­dler.

The triple-threat diva chal­lenged Kar­dashian and her fans Wed­nes­day to use the re­al­ity star’s now-in­fa­mous bath­room nude to raise cash for Mi­dler’s char­ity, Stages for Suc­cess, which ren­o­vates out­dated pub­lic school au­di­to­ri­ums.

“Put your selfie to work ... for a good cause! Do­nate, RT, I’ll match $$ 2-1!” she tweeted, shar­ing an ap­par­ently Pho­to­shopped ver­sion of her own sul­try selfie and a link to the Stages for Suc­cess do­na­tion page. Mi­dler’s dare was the lat­est swing in her days-long feud with Kar­dashian, who drew scorn from the “Ho­cus Pocus” star and other celebri­ties with her barely cen­sored naked photo Mon­day.

As Piers Mor­gan and ac­tress Chloe Grace Moretz con­demned the risque shot, the Grammy win­ner piled on, quip­ping, “If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swal­low the cam­era.”

The po­lar­iz­ing so­cialite hit back, slam­ming Mi­dler as a “fake friend” who’d turned on her af­ter once be­stow­ing a “gift” — re­port­edly a tree the ac­tress had planted years ago in Kar­dashian’s honor.

She also cheek­ily asked the Broad­way vet to “send nudes.”

I never tried to fake friend you,” Mi­dler re­torted Tues­day. “Looks like any­one can take a selfie but not ev­ery­one can take a joke...”

“Kim Kar­dashian wants me to send her my nudes!” she con­tin­ued Wed­nes­day. “I’ll send them right over but the light­ing’s bad right now since she threw all that shade!”

Fol­low­ing a Twit­ter ram­page against her haters, Kar­dashian owned her fe­male em­pow­er­ment in an es­say on her web­site Tues­day — coin­ci­den­tally In­ter­na­tional Women’s Day.

I am a mother. I am a wife, a sis­ter, a daugh­ter, an en­tre­pre­neur and I am al­lowed to be sexy,” she wrote.

De­spite the many jabs, the selfie queen has re­ceived sup­port from fren­emy Am­ber Rose, who in­vited her to join a SlutWalk event, and Sharon Os­bourne and Emily Rata­jkowski, who shared their own nude snaps in sol­i­dar­ity.

Kim Kar­dashian drew a firestorm of crit­i­cism for her nude bath­room selfie Mon­day.

Bette Mid­dler tweeted “put your selfie to work...for a good cause! Do­nate, RT, I’ll match $$ 2-1!”
