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.

Pam--First off, the media is liberal, so I doubt they are making the pro-war guys look bad. Second, this is a CELEBRITY blog. If you want to discuss the war in Iraq, go to a political forum, there are lots of them!
