Glittery old Hollywood and political Washington joined together at the Beverly Hilton on Thursday night to celebrate the 90th birthday of singer Dolores Hope -- described by one of her grandchildren as the "backbone of the (Bob) Hope family," reports PEOPLE Daily editor Stephen M. Silverman. Nancy Reagan (who rocked with laughter at a mimic's impersonations of Bill Clinton and Frank Sinatra) delivered one of several toasts to the birthday girl, as did Dick Clark, Joe Montegna, Red Buttons, ex-California Governor Pete Wilson and Phyllis Diller. "Old," said Diller (in her 80s herself), "is when your walker has an airbag."
