Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner Get Star On Palm Springs Walk Of Stars

Congratulations to old friends Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner, for their recent induction into the Palm Springs Walk Of Stars! If anyone is deserving, they sure are.

Lily Tomlin has starred in such major hit movies as 9 to 5, The Incredible Shrinking Woman, Big Business, I Heart Huckabees, and Nashville (for which she was nominated for an Oscar). Her Broadway shows were major successes. The Search For Signs Of Intelligent Life held an epic run on Broadway, so much so she revived the show years later. Her most famous characters, Ernestine The Telephone Operator and Edith Ann were created during her tenure on the original, Laugh In series.

Jane Wagner is an award winning writer and collaborator with Tomlin, both professionally and in life. Wagner has written or served as a co-writer for many of Tomlin's most popular works. A philanthropist, she has lent her talents to
many issues involving women and children.

The Tomlin family has been very special to me. Lily's brother Richard, and
her brother in law, Michael Langston, have been like brothers to me and are very
dear to their heart. Michael's mother Joyce, also served as my nurse for a while

after a tragic bus accident that left me unable to walk alone and for a time, unable to walk at all. Lily, Jane, Michael, Richard, and Joyce were all very much a part of my heart and I love them dearly.

On hand to cheer the girls on, was another angel in my life, Carol Channing. This marks one of her very first appearances in the public since her husband Harry's death last December. She's looking amazing and I thank Rick Graham for taking the photo of Carol, and Tennessee Michael Langston for the
photo of Lily and Jane with the Star Ceremony crew.
