Wow, it has been a long time since I have had the chance to make fun of Barry Man-I-blow or Barry Banana Nose.
Manilow was scheduled to be a guest on TV talk show "The View". Prior to his scheduled appearance the Diva Manilow issued ultimatums to producers that he refused to be interviewed by Elizabeth Hasselbeck, calling her dangerous & offensive....
I had made a request that I be interviewed by (co-hosts) Joy (Behar), Barbara(Walters) or Whoopi (Goldberg), but not Elisabeth Hasselbeck. Unfortunately, the show was not willing to accommodate this simple request so I bowed out," he said in a statement on his Web site (http://www.manilow.com).
"It's really too bad because I've always been a big supporter of the show, but I cannot compromise my beliefs."
Calling his demands "completely disrespectful" producers of "The View" canceled his appearance.
