NOTE all facts given in phone interview were checked out through parties mentioned. An undisclosed, reliable source gave facts below to Editor Glenn 10/14.
"I was pretty sure Newsletter editor knew nothing about Personal Vignette between Palmer & Davis who knew each other well & Lynne did Bette Davis' astrology---work in NYC (where Lynne lives), which proves her interest was more than passing in stellar art.
In the early 60's Lynne was to be a guest on show "WHAT'S MY LINE?" Arlene Francis, Tony Randall, Bennett Cerf and Dorothy Kilgallen) were on the panel which was filmed in NYC at NBC. The panel could not "guess" Lynne Palmer's "line of work." When Lynne left the stage she encountered Bette Davis (who was walking in the other direction. Davis was the big attraction on the show, being its MYSTERY GUEST. Davis approached Lynne saying "You were simply great! I want you to do my horoscope!" and that is how they met.
A few years later at NBC, Johnny Carson's Show (NYC/NY) where it was filmed then, Lynne was escorting Syd Omarr (from Hollywood, CA) who was to be a guest on Carson's show. The NBC studio was huge and Omarr didn't know where the "make-up" room was. Arriving at the make-up room, Bette was in a chair being made up for another TV show. Bette Davis saw Lynne and told her to come in and sit down so they could have a gab-fest. Thus poor Omarr was left outside while they renewed their old acquaintance (Davis & Palmer)! Imagine my surprise to see their names linked together in Newsletter! "

Years later, on one occasion, Sydney Omarr (the astrologer writer), was to appear on the "Tonight" show and asked Lynne to accompany him to the taping of the show. After Sydney left the make-up room, he escorted Lynne down the hall to a back office where he told her she had to sit while he was a guest on the "Tonight" show. Omarr and Lynne walked by Carson's office and Johnny jumped up from his desk chair and ran to the hallway shouting, "Lynne Palmer, where do you think you are going?"
Lynne responded, "This is Sydney Omarr who is going to be a guest on your show and he said I could not sit in the Green Room. He told me that I had to watch the show from a back office."

Every time Joe saw Lynne he told her he wanted to produce a radio show for her. He was a Pisces (they make promises and never as a rule keep their word). Lynne would say to him, "Is that a Pisces promise?"
And Joe would answer, "Yes." (He did not know that Pisces does not always fulfill a promise---- for years, it became a running joke between them.)

In NYC Lynne Palmer appeared on the TV show BEST TALK IN TOWN with Ruth Brown, the singer and star of the Broadway musical "Black and Blue."
Also in NYC, Miss Palmer appeared on MIDDAY LIVE.
In the 1970's and 1980's, Lynne Palmer toured the USA and appeared on many morning talk shows, such as in California--SUN UP (San Diego), THE MORNING SHOW, AM SAN FRANCISCO, and the NEWS (San Francisco); AM Los Angeles. In Minnesota: TWIN CITIES TODAY (St, Paul), WHAT'S NEW (Minneapolis), GOOD COMPANY (St, Paul).
In Detroit, Michigan KELLY & CO. (several years in a row); PITTSBURGH TODAY; In Cleveland, Ohio, 43 AM and the AM MORNING SHOW (several years in a row); MIDDAY NEWS in Cincinnati; In Portland, Oregon- AM NORTHWEST; In Seattle --GOOD COMPANY; Tulsa, Oklahoma DAYLINE; In Phoenix, Arizona-- MIDDAY NEWS; PEOPLE ARE TALKING (Boston and in Baltimore, Maryland. The Baltimore, PEOPLE ARE TALKING SHOW, Lynne appeared on many times, "before" Oprah Winfrey was a co-host.
In 1982 and 1983, Lynne appeared on the PEOPLE ARE TALKING TV show in Baltimore, Maryland. On one of Miss Palmer’s appearances, Oprah Winfrey was the co-host with Richard Sher. Miss Palmer was the only guest for one hour with a live audience. She gave instructions on how to get more money by doing her Law of Abundance check gimmick. In between taping, the commercials gave time for Lynne and Oprah to chat off- camera. Oprah asked Lynne what she could tell her about her future. Lynne did not have Oprah's horoscope but based on the slow-moving daily planets she told Oprah that her entire life was soon changing for the better. It was not long after that when Oprah left the Baltimore show and went to Chicago to host the AM CHICAGO TV show.
In August 1985, Oprah asked the talent coordinator to call Lynne Palmer and book her for the Chicago show on January 1st, 1986. He told Lynne that Oprah wanted Lynne to give instructions for her check gimmick. Lynne could not appear on that day, because she was already booked by the MCA (Music Corporation of America) PR firm to promote her videos on two shows (one in Baltimore and the other in Pittsburgh) that day.
Note: It is most likely that Oprah wrote Lynne's check gimmick after co-hosting, and, meeting Miss Palmer, on the "People Are Talking" television show. Soon after that, Oprah went to Chicago to audition for the "AM Chicago" television show. The rest is history because Oprah's luck changed. She became rich and famous.
If she did Lynne's check gimmick that could be the reason she had the talent coordinator of the AM Chicago show (later changed to The Oprah Show) contact Miss Palmer to appear on the 1986 New Year's Day show.
In June 1984, Lynne appeared on The PEOPLE ARE TALKING television show in Baltimore. That day on the television show, as usual, Lynne gave instructions for her check gimmick to the live audience and at -home viewers. One of the at-home viewers told her neighbors how to write the Check Gimmick. The couple both had health issues and money problems. The man wrote his check following Lynne's instructions. Within a few days, he won the Million Dollar Lottery. This received newspaper coverage.
In July 1984, the lottery winner appeared on THE PEOPLE ARE TALKING television show and stated that he attributed his winning to the Lynne Palmer check gimmick.
