Bette Midler took another shot at Kim Kardashian and her body on Friday.

As Gossip Cop reported, the two stars had an unexpected dust-up earlier this month when Kardashian shared a nude selfie and Midler made a pointed quip about it on Twitter. Kardashian responded with some disses of her own, leading Midler to accuse her of being unable to take a joke. The reality star went on write a lengthy blog post about why she feels empowered by her sexuality, despite ongoing slut-shaming.

Midler then tried to take the dispute in a different direction. Posting a (fake) “nude selfie” of her own, she challenged Kardashian to donate to Stages For Success, the actress’ charity, which raises money to rehabilitate run-down school auditoriums. Midler tweeted,”.@KimKardashian Put your selfie to work…for a good cause! Donate, RT, I’ll match $$ 2-1!”

But Kardashian never responded publicly, and apparently didn’t make a private donation either. So on Friday night, Midler shaded her again… with another reference to Kardashian’s body. “I wanted @KimKardashian to donate to #StagesForSuccess; she’s a brilliant businesswoman. I know this because her ‘back-end’ is enormous,” Midler wrote.

A few hours later, Midler tweeted, “#HulkHogan won $115,000,000 award from Gawker media for releasing a sex tape of his! I gotta get crackin’!!!” That, too, could be considered a dig against Kardashian given her sex tape past. But so far, the E! personality hasn’t taken the bait.
