News from Carney

Ripley’s Believe it or Not just purchased the Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress, and they’ve got a new book out just in time for Christmas

Longtime Carney Show guest Ed Meyer was the one holding the paddles when he plunked down $4.8 Million for the diamond and sequined dress

The people over at Ripley’s just bought the Marilyn Monroe “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” dress at auction for a cool $4+ Million, and our guy, Eddie-Baby, Ed Meyer, VP of Exhibits & Archives, was the man holding the paddle when he decided he was going to spend a large fortune on one dress…..so we had to have him on the show to talk about it.

Did you know that the original design for the dress, sketched by none other than a pre-Cher Bob Mackie, had to be purchased separately from the dress, for another $10G’s……..sheesh, you buy a $4.8 Million dress, and they don’t even throw the sketch in for free!….dresses these days, Am.I.Right?!
