Carol Channing in "Hello, Robbers!" (Again)

1/27/2008 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ's favorite talker, Carol Channing, was in a bank in Palm Desert on Friday when it was robbed. What, no diamonds?

Carol told CBS2, "Well, along with a lot of other people, I've been robbed, we just bought a new house. It's really the first house I've ever had and not a hotel. This is our house, and they robbed us." Um, but she was at a bank. O-kay.

The charming Channing -- who turns 87 this week -- was the victim in a robbery last September, when her famous "diamond dress" from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," was stolen while she was checking into a Hollywood hotel -- right before she was about to donate it to the Smithsonian. It was eventually found and returned by a homeless man.

As far as her race goes, according to Carole Channing, she is one-fourth African-American. You could read "Just Lucky, I guess" her autobiography where it is Revealed that her father was a light skinned African American who used one accent to help "pass" in the white world and another around the house, where he sang gospel music to entertain his daughter.

Now maybe people can stop arguing about that non-issue and start worrying about the welfare of an 87 year old that just got robbed in a bank hold up.
