Warning: Get your tissues ready!

Bette Midler has always been about providing inspiration to many, but her music and spirit especially hit home for one very sick girl.

28-year-old Anna Greenberg, who was a mega-fan of Bette, died last month after battling a rare form of cancer.

Days before Anna's passing, Mizz Midler called the girl in the hospital and sang Wind Beneath My Wings, which was one of Anna's last requests.

In the video, Bette professed:

Rebel Wilson continues to captivate audiences EVERYWHERE, including The View hosts!

The HIGHlarious actress stopped by to promote her new film Pain & Gain, and while she joked that her co-stars’ — Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson — bigger builds made her feel “slender,” it was her Whoopi Goldberg anecdote that had us intrigued!

The Tony Award nominee list is out! And it looks like this just might be Cyndi Lauper’s year! Her musical collaboration with Harvey Fierstein, resulting in the new Broadway hit Kinky Boots, is garnering quite the attention with 13 Tony nominations!

What’s more? Tweens are dominating the musical theater awards with 12 nods for Matilda, 10 for Pippin and 9 for Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella!

But we’re have to admit we’re a little stumped by the play nominees! While Tom Hanks has got himself a Best Actor in a Play nomination, that list is looking a little empty. Where’s Al Pacino?! As for the ladies, no Bette Midler?!

Ch-ch-check out the full nomination list…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Bette Midler & Barry Manilow's Blood Feud RUINING The Tony Awards!?

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!
