In addition to producing television specials and documentaries starring his now husband, Garry also has a strong of reality shows and documentaries that he's developed and made through Stiletto Television including Treehouse Masters, Taxidermy USA, Extreme Christmas Trees and Extreme Cougar Wives.
Barry, 73, cut a smart figure in a black tuxedo and a matching silk tie as he made his way to an awaiting car.
Meanwhile, his producer husband was similarly dressed but teamed his suit with a checked shirt and pale suede shoes.

A few years later, he was discovered by Bette Midler and the rest is history'You can only come into my world if I invite you in. I learnt how to deal with the publicity/press thing.
