Bob Hope, Phyllis Diller, Cathy Lee Crosby, and Charlene Tilton in Valentine Special
Original caption: HOLLYWOOD: Comic Phyllis Diller seems to be having a problem trying to understand why her "Prince Charming," comedian Bob Hope, seems to prefer the company of "That's Incredible" host Cathy Lee Crosby (left) and Charlene Tilton from "Dallas." The get-together took place during a break in taping of Bob Hope's latest NBC-TV special salute to Valentine's Day 2/9/1981. The musical-comedy tribute to love will be aired 2/11.

Phyllis Diller (born Phyllis Ada Driver; July 17, 1917) is an American actress and comedienne. She created a stage persona of a wild-haired, eccentrically-dressed housewife who makes jokes about a husband named "Fang" while pretending to smoke from a long cigarette holder. Diller's trademark is her unusual laugh.

Phyllis Diller was born to Perry Marcus Driver and the former Frances Ada Romshe, in Lima, Ohio.

Diller attended Lima's Central High School, then studied for three years at Sherwood Music Conservatory in Chicago, Illinois. She then transferred to Bluffton College in Bluffton, Ohio, where she met fellow "Lima-ite" and classmate, Hugh Downs.
