On a radio station this morning, a caller phoned in looking to win a bet from her co-workers. The prize was a free lunch. Anyway, she asked the morning crew if Barry Manilow was married, or not. After some quick "googling" it was determined he was married to his high-school sweetheart. Anyway, the debate rolled on sparking an entire segment of callers and questioning Barry's marital background and sexual preference. While this went back and forth for several minutes, there was not a definite answer except that it is a wonder how there isn't one picture of Barry anywhere with a female other than Rosie O'Donnell. So, what is the deal?

Nothing. Because Barry isn't seen with a woman people want to know is he or isn't he. Which is none of their damn business. I have in my Barry Manilow scrapbooks photos of Barry with Linda Allen lady friend, Roberta Kent who wrote comedy stuff for Barry, Dana Robbins his saxiophone player, Melissa Manchester singer and Mary Hart from ET. Barry sexuality is no ones business but Barry's Yes he was married to his high school sweetheart Susan Dexiler SP? last name. But Barry was to consumed with the music to be a husband who stays home every night.

I often wonder after all these years Barry was able to remain a mystery to his fans. Of course I want to know if he is with someone whether a man or a woman. At least he is honest. Will he ever come out? Now he is looking thin and awkwardly less attractive. What is going on?

I thought everyone was aware that Barry has been with Garry for well over 20 years. I totally agree with Barry Fan though, that it doesn't matter who he's with or what his sexual preference is -- the man makes beautiful music that touches everyone, so who cares. I applaud him for keeping his private life 'private'.

Yea I agree with the last two comments, who cares, just as long as hes happy with life, its nothing to do with anybody, he makes a lot of people happy with his music and its very obvious, he enjoys doing this, personally I dont think he appears to be very well, but again, all respect to him for carrying on, maybe thats part of what keeps him going, I went to see him in Paris Casino twonights in a row and thought he looked as if he was in pain, but both shows were absolutely fabulous, love and peace to you Barry xx
