Wow, had to share this. Bette Midler explains why Barry Manilow no longer speaks to her and it is over the Peggy Lee album they did together:

Hmm. Interesting. I'd commend her for what sounds like an honest answer, even if it only strengthens the lukewarm way in which I have always felt about her. From a professional standpoint, Barry's reaction seems to be justified. From a more interpersonal standpoint, his refusal to ever speak to her again might seem disproportionate to the severity of the alleged transgression -- if they were such close friends, and if she genuinely apologized. One wonders how other factors (his health & emotional state, any other past "transgressions" from her, their respective characters) weighed on his behavior.

Just musing. More importantly, thanks for the alert. I, for one, would have missed this otherwise ...
