Why Bette and not Melissa?

I'm curious. Both started out around the same time (Melissa sang backup for Bette for six months before singing on her own). Both have gay fanbases. But Bette got to be the big showbiz icon. Not that Melissa has done bad for herself. She had a steady run on the charts for a few years. But she's always been a strong supporter of the gays, where Bette has been known to put her foot in her mouth once or twice. Plus Melissa has retained her earthiness after all these years, whereas Bette seems to have become a humorless, conservative bore. BTW, is there a gayer song than Don't Cry out Loud? That song practically oozes glitter.
