I think she deserves her own thread
turbobilly said A friend who was a manager at one of the Wendy's in Greenwich, CT told me about the time Ms. Ross pulled in the drive-thru in her convertible Rolls- Royce.
Apparently, she did not receive the extra ketchup she asked for and came in the restaurant to tell the manager that she needs to train her employees better...

nabob7729 saidIn the name of World Peace, one should never start a Diana Ross or a Supremes thread. Fans, especially those who weren't even born, have strong opinions and feelings about the three ladies and what went down among them. Threads quickly deteriorate in flame wars with polarized camps launching vicious attacks.
I am a lover of the Supremes because they were the first young Black people who constantly popped up on TV in the 60s. We did occasionally see Sammy Davis, Pearl Bailey, Louie Armstrong & Mahalia Jackson, but they were of another generation. The Supremes represented the American dream personified for most Black kids of the day.
Mary Wilson is my lady because she is a survivor who managed to have a financially successful career rooted in the legacy and in her own right. Check out the lady's pipes. She has evolved into more than a background singer and still actively performs around the globe at age 69.
Diana Ross has given us some great music. That's all I will say of her. Florence Ballard's life was a tragedy. These ladies were all of 20 years old when living with fame became a way of life. How many of us could have handled the rigors of their career at that age or even in later years?

Here here. As an anecdote I grew up down the street from the house she bought for her father. Never saw the woman in person. She's one of the souless singers of the 60's 70's.
We lived down the block from Berry Gordy when I was small.
