I just don't have the extra $ to see her but it would have been nice to see her & Mary Wilson just a few months apart. That happened once before for me in 1984.

Have you seen Diana in the recent past? She still does a great show. I will see her tonight.
I took the quiz at the link you provided, but they didn't provide answers to the questions and some questions were impossible to answer since the questions contained incorrect info:


In 1961, she was involved in the marketing of this product ...

a. Supreme Cola

b. Baby Love Towelettes

c. Diana Ross Ultrashears

d. Come See About Me lens cleaner



5. The Supremes in 1961 co-hosted ...

a. “The Tonight Show”

b. “The Muppet Show”

c. “The Mike Douglas Show”

d. The Jerry Lewis Labor Day MDA Telethon




How many number one records did the Supremes have? It seems that it was more than seven and less than 12. What is the official count?

And one question was how many Grammies did Diana win. I think she won none, but was given a special one last year. Am I right?

1984 was the last time I saw her. The questions had problems, I think they must have meant 1981 and it was the ultrasheer panty hose. The co-host was probably Mike Douglas but not in 1961, seemed they were stuck on 1961 and yes, they had no answers.

I think the "offical" amount of #1 records is twelve, but depending on what charts you look at.

I think "Reflections" was also a regional #1.
"I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" was a Cash Box #1.
"Stoned Love" (sans Diana) was an R & B #1.

I remember there was some "controversy" around the time that the collection "#1's" was released. It included all of the "alternate" #1's and several people suggestion Motown was "stretching" the truth.....
