What?! Noooooo!

Producers behind the 2013 Tony Awards are considering asking the beautifully brilliant Bette Midler to co-host the show with the ah-mazingly iconic Barry Manilow, but there is a huge hitch!

And we don't mean the match-maker played by Will Smith!

The two legendary entertainers apparently HATE each other!

See, Barry started out as Bette's piano man, but the Mandy singer quickly escaped his humble beginnings and — with 80 million album sales beneath his belt — eventually outsold his former boss!

Bette didn't waste away by the wayside, but she apparently holds a grudge!

The Wind Beneath My Wings songstress wouldn't even attend his Manilow on Broadway opening!

Aww! We love Bette & Barry more than we love oxygen and chocolate milk, but the Tonys are bigger than these two stage legends!

We will not have them sullied!

Get it together, you two! The world is counting on you!

The show must go on!

    Two really despicable individuals, who deserve each other



  2. 2

    so over both of them…
    let'em stew in their own bodily juices.



  3. 3

    After looking at their faces, just say no to cosmetic surgery.



  4. 4

    and when was the last time Manilow was relevant?



  5. 5

    Perez,
    Did you read all of the story or just ignore it for the sake of this so called story? Barry's manager Garry Kief said there's no truth to this rumor, and Bette's manager said the same thing. Barry has nothing but the greatest respect and admiration for Bette' and she's always been grateful to Barry for his help and support when her career was just starting. I realize you really don't care about facts, but it would be a nice change if you got them right for a change.

    Oh, and for the person who wanted to know about Barry's relevancy, how many gold and platinum albums have you sold, and how many grammys, tony's and emmy's have you won, and when was the last time you were nominated for an Oscar?



  6. 6

    They both speak highly of each other and always have as far back as I can remember. I don't believe this story AT ALL.



  7. 7

    Two ancient jews.

    I'm a HUGE Bette Midler fan and don't think I've ever missed an appearance on a talk show. Every single time she's on a show, they ask her about her past. Everytime she talks about her old friend, Barry Manilow. She doesn't have to mention him, but she does. She loves him. I don't understand, Perez, why you're so hateful! You're a troublemaker and bully. For those young people who barely know anything about Bette & Barry, please know that they're phenomenal entertainers/artists and have the utmost respect and love for one another. A nasty, despicable, illiterate gossip blogger can't taint that, no matter how hard he tries.

    Barry Manilow looks like Waylon's Flowers the puppet…
    He's terrible, and wrote ZERO of any terrible hit song that he sung, a total fraud.

    She's useless… SO WHO gives a crap about either of them?
