Can anyone tell me if the BarryGram has been discontinued? I joined the fan club again in January of 2007 and have yet to receive a single issue. I have called Starz.Bz and left messages ...they don't answer the phone much less call back to reply to questions left for them. The same goes for emailing them. They never reply. I wonder if Barry knows this is going on. I highly doubt it. He loves his fans and is far too caring and considerate to let it happen knowingly.

This was addressed at the Bash. We were told that it takes an age to put together and trying to get Barry in one place long enough to contribute was becomming more and more difficult - Garry did also mention that online publications seem to be more popular.

No doubt we'll hear something soon (which loosely translated in BMIFC speak means anything between the coming year and eternity)

In my humble opinion the BarryGRAM was only really worthwhile for Barry's Q & A (when it wasn't a medical or emotional agony uncle column)the rest was just one giant order form. Maybe getting Barry to write some kind of bi-monthly online letter or blog is the way to go.

Who knows??

I couldn't agree more.

I really wish Barry would blog. But if he doesn't want to do it, then wishing is pointless.

Of course he does.

He doesn't care. He's got more important things to worry about. Doesn't mean he's a bad guy - he has employees on the payroll who are paid to care.

This is so true about trying to get someone to answer you at the fan club.I just gave up trying to get anything to Barry. I wrote a letter more than once, and was told I was put on a black list and to lay low for a while!I really do not think Barry knows what his people are doing where the fans are concerned.Where the BarryGram is concerned, I was wondering why I have not gotten one at all!!!Garry Kief won't even answer his own phone, he has his personal assistant doing everything, and she is NO help at all!

You haven't gotten a Barrygram because there hasn't been one to get.

Good luck getting Garry on the phone - LOL!

Brenda...regarding Garry's personal assistant. You have made reference to her reading and answering his email's. Do you really think he would condone that?

Catherine,

We all wish YOU were really over.
Barry is not going to be happy with you spreading all these lies you keep coming up with.

Katie,

Your information is wrong.
Barry did not shut the show down early on Sunday because of any one person in that audience.
Please, for the love of Christ will you STOP with your crap??

Re Garry Kief's phone - If you know the extension you'll either get to leave a voicemail or (and it's happened) he answers it himself.

I think the BarryGRAM is well and truly over

"I have heard from someone from the BMIFC.That Barry is not happy with the fans lately." Who is the person who told you this? Vicki? You need to quit calling the BMIFC all the time. Garry, Vicki and company have much better things to do then having to talk to fans like you all the time. Fans who call why? Because 1. They want to know what's up with Barry. 2. They want to gripe about something. Or 3. They want to find out why something went the way it did. Like how come this past Sunday nights show was shorter than normal? Those fans who were there are not griping about that.

Catherine,

You might not be 'a love sick Barry'(whatever that means) but you are one sick girl.

Try writing something intelligent and interesting about Barry for a change, instead of your lies about the same thing over and over again.

Why not? She's a trusted employee who's been with him for many years, and it's not uncommon - at least in the corporate world - for assistants to handle their boss's mail (and with their blessing).

I'm not sayiing I know for a fact that this is the arrangement they have (gotta put the disclaimer in there), but I wouldn't be at all surprised if that were the case.

He's a busy guy ... who knows who else he's got reading and answering his email?

to deb:you may "have a life" BUT IT'S BARRY MANILOW WHO NEEDS TO GET A LIFE.BARRY MANILOW HAS NO LIFE BUT DOING HIS SHOW.did you know that in the past ten years barry manilow has been seeing a psychiatrist "BECAUSE HE GETS ANTSY ABOUT BEING ALONE?" (he told the press this TWICE).also,in a recent interview ,just before barry manilow left nyc to fly to the uk, barry AGAIN CONFIRMED THAT "HE'S BEEN IN THERAPY." conclusion :BARRY MANILOW IS ALONE AND HE HAS NO PERSONAL LIFE.also ALL the females who barry manilow dated (and just used) over the years (there were at least 11 of them) had ONE thing in common and nothing else:INSIDER STATUS.OTHERWIZE,BARRY MANILOW NEVER GAVE A CRAP ABOUT ANY OF THESE FEMALES AND VICE VERSA.THEY ONLY DATED HIM (AND PUT UP WITH HIS CRAP) TO GET SEEN ESCORTING HIM IN THE PRESS.THEY'RE NOT ATTRACTED TO HIM AND THEY DONT THINK HE'S A "SEX GOD."THEY'RE NOT CAPABLE OF BEING INTERESTED IN BARRY MANILOW.THAT EXPLAINS WHY ALL OF THESE FEMALES DUMPED HIM AND HE'S NOW ALONE.SO DONT LET BARRY MANILOW KID YOU ABOUT HIS "PERSONAL LIFE." HE HASN'T GOT ONE.

christine j sojka, replying to a thread over THREE YEARS OLD? Ranting about something you know NOTHING about because you don't KNOW Barry and aren't privy to his personal life? I don't think Barry is the one who doesn't have a life and needs to get one.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
