Manilow's 'View' of Elisabeth

'It Didn't Feel Good'

9/19/2007 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After he ditched "The View" -- or got ditched by them, depending on who you're talking to -- Barry Manilow and his face seemed to be unmoved by the uproar over his Hasselbeck boycott. And that's Barry in the picture here, not Babwa Walters.

TMZ caught up with the man of exactly one face after a rehearsal, and he told us that while he loved "all those people" at "The View," appearing with Elisabeth on the show "didn't feel good." Barry said he wouldn't appear on the show because he disagreed with what he deemed Hasselbeck's "dangerous" opinions.

Meanwhile, on today's show, Elisabeth wondered if, given recent studies about older men and younger women, she and Manilow couldn't get along down the road. Whoopi said that Barry had already agreed to be on "The View" again soon -- and we're presuming that means that Elisabeth will have to be there, too.

ELISABETH IS A NIT WIT. Don't blame you, Barry. It's embarassing to be on a show with such a no talent, air head.

Elizabeth is a reality show left over. I don't know even how she qualified for this show. If you are going to have a conservative republican on the show, which is good because it is the VIEW and all views should be represented, pick a more educated, talented one. She is an embarrassment to the show.

He just knows that she knows that he is homosexual and he is afraid that she is judging him. Dude bring your old ass out of the closet, do you think any body walking on this planet does not know that you are GAY?

BARRY MANILOW HAS THE GUTS TO SAY WHAT HE BELIEVES AND DOESN'T NEED THE VIEW TO PROMOTE HIS ALBUM.

Why couldn't Barry just politely decline the invite to appear without undue controversy? I rarely agree with Elizabeth, but she does have the right to her opinion. Maybe it's just a gay-loyalty thing between he and Rosie?

JUST WHEN WE WERE ON OVER-FLOW WITH "DIZZY LIZZY", ALONG COMES "SCARY SHERRI" , WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN EVOLUTION AND THINKS THE WORLD IS FLAT!!! JUST WHAT THE VIEW NEEDS, ANOTHER AIR HEAD. THIS SHOW HAD BETTER GET SOME INTELLIGENCE GOING ON BEFORE THEY BECOME A COMPLETE LAUGHING STOCK. IS SCARY SHERRI REALLY STUPIDER THAN DIZZY LIZZY? I DON'T BLAME BARRY MANILOW FOR NOT WANTING TO REDUCE HIMSELF TO THE LEVEL OF ELISABETH BY SPEAKING TO HER, SITTING NEAR HER, OR MUCH LESS BEING "INTERVIEWED" BY HER. HE IS A GENIUS, AN ACCOMPLISHED ARTIST OF MANY YEARS STANDING, SHE IS A BABBLING DING BAT WITH AN IQ BELOW ZERO. HER "EXPLAINATION" FOR WHY SO MANY YOUNG AMERICAN MEN AND WOMEN ARE DYING IN IRAQ" "WHY, THEY'RE DYING TO GIVE THE IRAQI PEOPLE A BETTER WAY OF LIFE" SHE DECLARED! I WONDER HOW THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF THE DEAD SOLDIERS FEEL ABOUT THIS TWISTED SICK COMMENT. THIS WOMAN IS DANGEROUS AS BARRY SAYS AND SHOULD NOT BE SEEN OR HEARD IN PUBLIC. WHEN THE VIEW FALLS APART SHE WILL BE THE MAIN REASON..
