    Heard, on the radio yesterday, that Diahann Carroll is suffering from dementia. She is 76 years old.

    Three days ago, it was also reported that Diahann Carroll had been cast as playing Denzel Washington's mother in a new Broadway production of A Raisin in the Sun.

    I have no idea which story, if either one, is true, but they certainly are a huge contrast to one another. BTW, the only source I can find on-line for the dementia story, and the one various other sites are citing as the source for the story, is the National Enquirer. The report itself is pretty vague, mentioning only "close friends" of the actress as their informants.

    If it is true, what a rotten thing for close friends to do, particularly since they're claiming she's only in the early stages of dementia. If someone's really a friend, you let her make news like that public in her own way and her own time. But again, it is the National Enquirer. It's not that they're never right, but I personally think you need to take anything they print with an enormous grain of salt.

    I'll be looking to see if Diahann appears in the new season of White Collar in her recurring role.

    Did anyone catch Tim McGraw and Faith Hill last night on Tim's (ACM Superstar) special? They had a lot of performers from various categories of music. I was quite surprised at Faith. I'm not sure what she was aiming for in her performance, but it was rather bizarre. It was more how she performed than how she sang. Tim was a little bizarre too. Has anyone heard what's going on with them? I've always enjoyed both of their music.

    Tim McGraw's ACM special includes Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, and more - CSMonitor.com

    I did several searches about Diahann Caroll and the only source I found that is reporting that dementia story is the National Enquirer. Not that they don't sometimes break stories, but I'm waiting until a more reliable news source - preferably including confirmation from her people - to cover the story as well. If it's not true, that's just mean-spirited. If it IS true, then it's just tragic. She's 78, so she's the right age...
