The View Gives Barry The Boot
Barry Manilow, who has a new CD, "The Greatest Songs of the Seventies", requested (or demanded depending on who you listen to) that he not share the same stage as host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck. No one tells Barbara Walters what to do, so it was 'The View' that cancelled Barry's appearance today, not the other way around. Funny he should make this request now. Afterall, he's made two appearances on 'The View' with Elisabeth and there was no problem. Maybe the departure of his good friend, Rosie O'Donnell is the reason for his sudden change of heart towards Elisabeth and no her staunchly conservative political views, as he claims. We'll never know the reason, but if any kind of publicity, even bad, is a good thing, then he won the lottery today.
