Many who watched a lot of TV in the '70s will remember Carol Channing. She was mentioned in this morning's paper:
Carol Channing is getting married again -- to her childhood sweetheart from 70 years ago.
The 82-year-old singer-actress said Harry Kullijian, with whom she grew up in San Francisco, tracked her down after reading about himself in her memoirs. Kullijian had been trying to reach her for 60 years, she said.
"Since our spouses have both passed away, we were able to get together again, renew our love, and would like to announce our engagement," Channing said Thursday. "There are no immediate plans for a wedding date, but this is the happiest moment of my life."
Kullijian, 82, is a co-owner of the Mervyn's department store chain. Channing, who starred on Broadway in "Hello, Dolly!" and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," has been married three times. Two marriages ended in divorce; her third husband, to whom she was married for 42 years, died in 1999.
