My Icons: Lady Di

Icon: Diahann Carroll

"You have to keep your sanity as well as know how to distance yourself from it while still holding onto the reins tightly. That is a very difficult thing to do, but I'm learning."
-Diahann Carroll

The first black woman to be the lead actress in an American television sitcom, Miss Carroll also made her mark in the drama of soaps.

In Dynasty
with Joan Collins

"Alexis, I didn't thank you for your present"

She called herself the first black bitch in television. I love every bit.
