Recommended Posts

Carrot Top reports that Marty Allen has gone to Frenchy at the age of 95 — but I don’t see any news sources yet. Hmm...

There was a Zsa Zsa Gabor Show??  When?  What was it?

The Zsa Zsa Gabor Show was a talk show pilot taped in February 1969. Lucy, Adam West (or as Zsa Zsa calls him "Adam Vest ze Batman"), and Marty Allen were the guests. It's everything you would hope and expect from a Zsa Zsa talk show. Zsa Zsa has a handsome male sidekick who's job seems to be just to keep Zsa Zsa on track. Zsa Zsa asks Lucy who were some of the most fascinating men she ever met. Lucy mentions FDR and Zsa Zsa exclaims, "I dated him!" She then is surprised to learn that FDR isn't John F. Kennedy. Zsa Zsa asks Lucy about her trip to Monaco and Princess Grace, but then immediately changes the topic to how a duke wants to marry her. Zsa Zsa's cohost announces that Zsa Zsa has a special phone call and when she picks up the phone, it's nothing but a loud dial tone. She eventually gets to speak to the caller: her daughter Francesca. One segment is a takeoff on The Dating Game trying to find Zsa Zsa a new husband. Another has them trying funny hats on Marty Allen. Before one commercial break, all of the stars do some groovy dancing. Lucy looks absolutely terrific on the show.

And I got to see that Zsa Zsa show and it's as batshit crazy fun as it sounds. I forgot about that most fascinating men question. 

In response to the question, Lucy says to Zsa Zsa, "You think you married a couple of them" and mentions George Sanders.

Oh that's right. Somehow he always gets brought up when those 2 are together.

British actress Emma Chambers, who was just hilarious in The Vicar of Dibley, has died at 53.

 

Tragic -- so young and brilliantly funny.

Louise Latham, probably best known for her screen debut as Marnie's mother in Marnie, has died at 95. She was supposed to have been a regular during the first season of Rhoda as Rhoda's book editor boss, but that plot line ended up being dropped after one episode.

I'd like to think that Mama Bush would have a sense of humor about this blunder, because it sounds like something straight out of WJM TV News.

But I do send her and the whole fam prayers, good vibes, and condolences as they go through this sad time in their lives.

Legendary sitcom producer Paul Junger Witt has died at 77. 

Lemme tell ya, when you see a breaking news obituary that uses a picture of the cast of The Golden Girls, it sends a shock up your spine like you would not believe!

O

They should know better than to do that. I had the horrible thought yesterday, don't let Betty die today, Carol Burnett can't handle that.

That was a very poor move. Cheap way to get more clicks. Mention Mr. Junger Witt's credits but use his picture. That's just unfair to everyone involved.
