Bennett bestills his beating heart

Edwards honored by health org in BevHills

Tony Bennett tried not to let nerves get the best of him before performing at Larry King‘s Cardiac Foundation gala Friday night.

“I don’t fall apart, but I come close to that,” Bennett explained. “You just hope that everything works and that everything is going to be all right.”

Meanwhile, Barbara Eden declined to weigh in on the prospect of Jessica Simpson taking on her television alter ego, Jeannie for the bigscreen.

“I think I have to stand on the sidelines on that one,” Eden said.

The BevWilshire gala honored Blake Edwards. Julie Andrews, Don Rickles, Sidney Poitier and Garry Marshall were in attendance.
