Carol Channing and Diana Ross were secretly COUSINS

My elderly neighbor, who lived in LA since childhood and spent decades working in entertainment has told me some scrazy stories, but the craziest is that Carol Channing and Diana Ross were actually cousins, and that Carol's machinations were a big part of Diana's ascension to lead status in the Supremes.

R7's pic really looks like a lot of the black people who used to live in San Francisco. Today they are much more generic.

It was actually Carol's dad who had the mixed ancestry, not the mother. He had rather full lips, but I know a lot of white people with soup coolers like that...

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
