Carol's Dress Returned -- By a Homeless Fan!

9/14/2007 11:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned that Carol Channing's prized "diamond dress" has been returned. Hallelujah!

TMZ spoke with a rep for the Hollywood Renaissance hotel who told us that a homeless Caucasian man -- a person completely not fitting the description of the person of interest caught on surveillance tape -- walked into the hotel lobby about an hour ago. The man approached a hotel security guard and handed over a bag containing the dress. The man told the guard that he found the dress in a plaid shopping bag in a park in Hollywood. He said he was a huge fan of Ms. Channing's and had heard about the stolen dress on the news, and felt the need to return it to her. That's karma, buddy!

We've learned Carol met with the man this evening, and even took a couple of pictures. No word on whether the man will receive a reward for the return.

Carol Channing met he man that returned her dress. That's what is called CLASS folks!! Why can't some of the class that actors had in the past somehow rub off on the actors today. Carol always shows what a wonderful person she is..God Bless Her

Carol Said she was only interested in getting the dress back and not charging the robber. Yes, I agree, Carol has class! Something that will soon pass when her generation dies off. Shame!

Hey #12... Thats exactly what I was going to say! This man could have tried to sell it to make a quick buck because he really needs the money. He gave it back to it's rightful owner and that says alot. I always wonder if people like that might have been involved with the original crime and had a change of heart... hope not in this case but no matter what the dress was returned.

I somhow feel pretty confident that Carol did give this guy a reward, I just think that she would like to keep it to her self and not boast about it.. Like the good Lord said "those who boast about their good deeds, have already been paid, for them.. But those whom keep them to themselves have their reward in the kingdom." I don't know , I just get that feeling., I mean nobody can be that bad, especially when money is not an issue.

Earth to Jon Bodack: you're a moron. This is a story about Carol Channing, not Xtina's pregnancy.

Ms. Channing, is far from rich a few yrs ago her x-husband she found out absconded and gamble her money away. Instead of retiring she had to go back to work. Bless her soul she is a Lady and proud she never ask for any help she just went back to work. As for rewards I'm sure it will be forthcoming. She is a class act.
