    It is a nice photo. I read that they became friendly while touring together in the 60s.

    I might have guessed it was Syreeta.

    I've read they were friends as well. Is that true John Lester?

    When I talked with Cal at Diana's concert in Grand Rapids, MI in July of 2019, Diana had given Cal and Bertha tickets to the show.... that tells me they must still be connected some!!

    You can see more of the photo on Facebook. It looks like they are in a nightclub. The poster speculates that it might be the Elmwood Casino.

    Mary Wilson and Cal are also good friends. Here they are with Martha Reeves a couple of summers ago in Detroit:

    Lovely photo; both ladies look gorgeous. Shoots yet another hole in the already-dead corpse of 'everybody at M'twn hated Diana' !

    Many and most of them are so glad they were there and are friends - only people with an axe to grind suggest otherwise

    I believe I read in Ladies of Motown that One of the Velvelettes interviewed for Flo’s spot but Diana didn’t like her.

    Yes indeed. I hope folks keep this thread POSITIVE. And if not then they should leave and start their own thread.

    Is it the Velvelettes who are still active with original members?

    Yes, well at least the four. I'm still waiting for Betty Kelly to rejoin the group!

    Would be lovely; seems Betty is a retired bank worker but appears at occasional Motown events.

    Fun fact: The poster of this photo on Instagram says that Cal told them that she and Diana were both pregnant in this shot.

    Here's another fun fact. Richard Street (of The Temptations) was Diana Ross's boyfriend when they were in school. Cal married Richard later on. Richard Street's cousin and I were on the basketball team together in high school.

    Cal looks a bit like Judy Pace to me in that photo with Diana. She a lovely woman and have never heard her say a bad word about anyone.

    Interesting, because Diana's giving me a Vonetta McGee vibe here as well (with apologies to those People Magazine staffers who confused them a while back).

    I aint seeing the GORGEOUS Judy Pace anywhere in that photo, but I have to agree that Diana is doing her best Vonetta McGee impression here.
