LATEST: Comedienne Whoopi Goldberg wasn't laughing when she took Barry Manilow to task for snubbing her new talk show on Wednesday (19Sep07). The Ghost star, who became a fresh face on long-running daytime show The View at the beginning of the month (04Sep07), went public with her own thoughts about the Manilow controversy, sending the message to the crooner, "If you don't sit with one, you sit with none." The Mandy singer pulled out of a Tuesday (18Sep07) performance on the show because he refused to share the same stage as Goldberg's right-wing co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, calling her "dangerous and offensive". But producers of The View insist they told Manilow he couldn't appear on the show if he wanted to make demands about who was interviewing him. Goldberg won applause from the studio audience when she scolded Manilow, adding, "We've had liberals, we've had Republicans - we service everybody!"

Good for Whoopi..I was shocked by Barry's actions. I have always loved him and his music. But,good grief Barry get a life. Ijust wonder how the old Barry from the 70's would have reacted. Your manager was a big enough shocker for me (Kief). Now all of this publicity over nothing.

I have been a Barry fan forever and I have to say GOOD FOR BARRY. He's has got every right to say who he does and does not want to be interviewed by. Why should he put himself in a situation which he's going to be made feel uncomfortable. Well done Barry for sticking to your principles.
