Barry Manilow Comes Out... And Surprises Very Few


Barry Manilow is opening up for the first time about his sexuality. The 73-year-old music legend has been in a nearly 40-year romance with his manager-turned-husband Garry Kief. 

For decades, the "Copacabana" singer, attempted to hide his sexuality, saying in the new issue of People magazine, "I thought I would be disappointing [fans] if they knew I was gay. So I never did anything." At 21, Manilow married his high school sweetheart Susan Deixler, but the marriage last just one year.

Is this a surprise to you? LaDona and I are interviewing him next Friday. Is there anything we should ask him?
