Recommended Posts

R.I.P. Millie. :(


From the AP:


Ann Morgan Guilbert, beloved as the next-door neighbor on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and seen recently on CBS' comedy "Life in Pieces," has died.

Guilbert died of cancer in Los Angeles on Tuesday, her daughter Nora Eckstein said. She was 87.

Recent TV appearances included "Getting On" and a guest shot on "Grey's Anatomy." She was a regular on the 1990s sitcom "The Nanny," and played Millie Helper on the acclaimed "Van Dyke" comedy in the early 1960s.

Guilbert had extensive theater credits, including the 2005 Broadway play, "The Naked Girl on the Appian Way," and productions of "The Matchmaker," ''Arsenic and Old Lace" and "Harvey."

She was married twice. After her marriage to producer-writer George Eckstein ended in divorce, she married actor Guy Raymond, who died in 1997.

I am so sorry for hear this. Ann is one of my all time favorite character actors. She made Millie Helper into a brilliant comedic character. I was thrilled that she had such a critically acclaimed hit with Please Give a few years ago. She deserved it. I was hoping she would be a frequent presence on Life in Pieces next season, but it's great that she was working and in demand right until the very end.

Ann Morgan Guilbert's groovy house is now on the market:



Oh! Now that's my idea of a home! Lovely, charming not ostentatious...and apparently near the ocean! (The Palisades is a beautiful area on the westside of LA near the coast, close to Brentwood (Bets!; Phyllis Diller etc.), Santa Monica (Valerie Harper) and Malibu....


Was she married?? I know so little about her personal business...

Thanks for sharing this.  :D
