All right, boys, get your bold-faced fonts out. It seems that at Oprah Winfrey‘s “Legends Ball,” none other than Leontyne Price asked specially to meet fellow guest/legend Mariah Carey. La Carey (who admits that at first she thought the diva mistook her for someone else) reports that Lee chatted with her about her music and her recent video. Who knew? The pop star (or, La Cieca guesses, her publicist) then gushed “. . . this is a woman who has made history and paved the way for just everybody.” (Next, I suppose, we’ll hear that Tom Cruise wants to meet David Daniels.) And, you know, it’s not like Lee and Mariah were short of someone to talk to; Oprah’s guest list also included Maya Angelou, Ruby Dee, Roberta Flack, Coretta Scott King, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Della Reese, Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Cicely Tyson, Halle Berry and Nancy Wilson. Anyway, here’s the story: MARIAH THRILLED THAT OPERA DIVA PRICE KNOWS WHO SHE IS.
