-Carol Channing in Carol Channing: Larger Than Life
I hope this finds you well. This is my last full day in Los Angeles...and what a busy day it's going to be. Last night was an incredible night. The Paley Center here in LA had a special screening of Carol Channing: Larger Than Life. It was STAR studded evening. These are TRUE stars, those that have earned the right to be called STAR.We were joined last night by Dan Glosser and what an inspiring night it was!

Filming me at St. Luke's in New York, on July 27th, 2010. Being with Carol and Harry in October last year when Carol received her star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame. The Tribeca Film Festival twice last year. The opening, in which Carol and Harry not being able to attend. The following week when they were able to attend and I was able to join them and watch it with them.
Seeing it on Saturday at The Palm Springs Film Festival...and then last night! I cannot thank Harlan and Dori enough for this incredible opportunity which I will always cherish. As I move on to explore other areas and put my career performing as Carol Channing behind me, last night was the perfect topping on the cake.
Thank you, Rene Reyes, director of public programs and festivals, for contacting me and asking me to be part of last night. Rene and I met two years ago when we honored Mitzi Gaynor at the Bistro Awards and we have remained in touch.

I also met Rose Marie last night who is as spunky and as lively as ever. It was great to meet George Chakiris and Dee Wallace who I have written about in previous blogs. Tippi Hedren looking SMASHING, she is also in the documentary. And Ruta Lee who always greets me as if I were her best friend.These people are stars because they are always giving and want to give to the world. It is not about "Me! Me!! Me!!" We still watch them on TV and love them because they have a body of WORTH and are not like the so called reality stars of today. I am lucky to bask in their light. I will continue to celebrate and honor these people that deserve to be celebrated! Thank you ALL for the gifts you give to the world! It was also great to see Katherine Kramer last night. Her and her mom BOTH looking like 2 million dollars!
