Carol Channing: "I'm So Grateful!"

9/15/2007 7:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but getting your diamond dress back is like being reunited with your best friend!


TMZ reported yesterday that Broadway superstar Carol Channing's prized "diamond dress" was returned to her, and now the always charming Channing is talking about the ordeal's happy ending. FOX 11 News in Los Angeles spoke with Ms. Channing last night, and she exclaimed, "I'm so glad, I'm so happy, I'm so grateful! I just have the giggles!" Being a living legend has its perks. The dress can now make its way to the Smithsonian, where it will be exhibited along with Channing's 1964 Tony for "Hello Dolly."

Ms. Channing expressed her appreciation for the LAPD and said, "They care as if we're all their family!" Carol's dress was lifted by a pedestrian outside of her hotel in Hollywood. Miss Channing, 86, is appearing tonight and Sunday at the Hollywood Bowl.

I AM GLAD MS. CHANNING GOT HER DRESS BACK BUT:

I WISH A CELEBRITY HAD JOINED THE ANTI WAR MARCH IN DC TODAY, SEPT 15, SO TMZ WOULD HAVE BEEN THERE WITH THEIR CAMERAS.. THE NEWS MEDIA IS NOT TELLING THE THROUGH ABOUT THE MARCH. THE PRO-WAR GROUP WERE THROWING STINK BOMBS AT THE ANTI WAR GROUP AND EVEN WHEN THE ANTI WAR GROUP HAD THEIR LITTLE CHILDREN IN STROLLERS, ELDERLY MEN AND WOMEN, AND PETS BUT THE PRO WAR GROUP STILL THROUGH THEM AT THEM. THE PRO WAR GROUP HAVE NO RESPECT FOR CHILDREN, THE ELDERLY, AND ANIMALS.
