    If that's the case, then she could've had one of the funeral attendants go back and whisper to Mary, "Diana wants to have words about Flo and would like to know if you're willing to join her." That's...

    Apparently it renewed their friendship. It is said that Diana offered Flo use of her home if she decided to come out to LA to work on getting back into the biz. That's something you only do for...

    I love their version of "Brokenhearted". It was recorded after Jimmy's was released so I don't think it was ever intended for anything other than an album track. The unfortunate thing is that, like a...

    Some great selections! Y'all really put your thinking caps on because my list feels crappy after seeing all the stuff I would've put on it had I thought about it.

    Thanks. I like the intro but then they start to sing. Not my cup of tea. Got 56 seconds in and decided to abandon ship. Was this a hit?

    Could this also be the day that Flo told Diana she was going into the antique business?:p

    By the time Jean came on board, the close nit atmosphere of Motown was almost gone. I doubt any of the other artists mistreated her when they did encounter her, and I'm sure paths did cross. Everyone...

    Ah yes, "Whisper". One of my all time favorites. And another that escaped my list. I suck.

    Wow Reese, I really don't care for their version of "Do You Love Me". It's aight, but I think thus far it's the most surprising inclusion I've seen in the thread.

    Good addition with "Lazy Bones"....

    How the hell did I forget "Teardrops"? What the hell is wrong with me today? Definitely a great one.

    Who did "5:30 Plane" before the Supremes?

    Oh, I forgot about "This Old Heart Of Mine" for some idiotic reason! I would've put it on my list.

    Never been much of a fan of "River", but it is a very well done song.

    Yeah, I know a lot of folks who do that. I know some who just won't do funerals at all. Had a great uncle who didn't go to his mother's- my great grandma- funeral. He said after my great...

    The difference between the two is that Mary felt Diana should've been there. She didn't force her to go or put her on the spot. Diana did that to Mary. Diana could've spoken and felt within herself...

    What's wrong is a thing called boundaries and respect. You don't put people on the spot. If you'd like further thoughts on the subject, I have several family members that will recall for you their...

    Greatest Cover Songs

    So if you had to compile the tracklist for a Supremes collection featuring their very best cover songs, what would your list look like? I'm going to stick to 12, but you can make your own rules on...

    About a year after Flo was fired. The three of them were at a party at Gordy's house. It didn't end well.

    Diana and Mary had a weird relationship post Supremes. Honestly it's strange that they never spoke about Flo's death with one another. Seems like as soon as the news broke that either woman would...

    I can agree with this. There's talk that once inside the church Diana became very emotional in a dramatic fashion. If true, I've never faulted her for that. I've been to enough funerals to expect...
