Q. I heard Barry Manitow and Bette Midler are going to star hi a TV specialtogether. Didn’t they start out in show business as an act? – H.I.
A. Barry Manilow was Bette’s accompanist and arranger when she first started out in New York clubs. He later branched out on his own, and became a star in his own right. The pair have no plans for a TV reunion.
