Carol Channing's "Diamond Dress" Returned

Those of you who spent your weekend worrying about Carol Channing's "diamond dress" theft, you can rest easy. The garment was returned over the weekend by a homeless man (who is apparently not the LAPD's "person of interest" in the case) and will now be headed to the Smithsonian.

  1. Gosh, good thing that they didn't release the name of the "person of interest", seeing as how it was another random dude to begin with.

  2. A pox on the people who said Channing was behind the theft for the insurance money!

  3. I'm so happy for Carol. I'd get pissed, too, if somebody stole my drag! And real diamonds no less. Me and my husband saw her in "Hello Dolly" in Pasadena some time ago. I thought she was going to fall into the bass drums but she was magnificent and really worked that stage. Natch she got a standing ovation afterwards and gave a 15 minute speech and we we're still standing for her. "Oh you poor people, you're still standing. Sit down, dears." She was a scream. Gotta love her. One of the greats.

  4. HA! i found the comments amusing the other day because this woman was a special guest playing to 45 THOUSAND people over three nights at the hollywood bowl, and in her two numbers, its clear she is aged, but the lady's still got it!

  10. I guess by "us" she meant the (seemingly) white and wealthy.

  11. I guess Seacrest returned it after the Emmy's.

  12. I have yet to figure out who she is (but kinda guess she's very old).

  13. Omigod, I typed "Carol Channing" into the search field at and I ended up watching the most hypnotic, stunning performance I've ever seen... this woman is bizarre but intoxicating!

    Seriously, you will freak when you see this performance. Talk about energy!

  14. I hope Channing or someody throws the homeless guy some bucks for his good deed...

  15. Mike. I saw what you were talking about, and it's true.

    She must not be as old as she looks. A bundle of energy, that one! Probably the meth.
