Manilow Cancels Appearance on 'The View'
By WENN Monday, September 17, 2007

Photo GalleryHOLLYWOOD - Legendary singer Barry Manilow has cancelled a scheduled appearance on TV show The View, because he dislikes co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The mild-mannered "Mandy" singer was scheduled to appear on the daytime show on Tuesday to promote his new covers album, The Greatest Songs of the Seventies. But Manilow pulled out of the show, after stating he finds right-wing host Hasselbeck "dangerous and offensive" and strongly disagrees with her "conservative views." In a statement, Manilow says, "I strongly disagree with her views. I think she's dangerous and offensive. I will not be on the same stage as her... I cannot compromise my beliefs." He adds, "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." Manilow's pal Rosie O'Donnell quit The View in May after a heated and politically charged public dispute with Hasselbeck. COPYRIGHT 2007 WORLD ENTERTAINMENT NEWS NETWORK

Barry Manilow is a freak anyhow. To bad I love some of his music. It is interesting to see the celebrities that come on the View, because some of them blantantly snub Elizabeth. It just happened today with Jessica Alba, she didnt hug Elizabeth or anything and than she shook Joy's hand and hugged Barbra's and Whoopi's. Iv'e noticed this happening other times also. Elizabeth always looks a little bit shocked and hurt but she still smiles. She is definitely in a tough spot with liberal Hollywood. -Susan
