Not to take anything away from Phyllis Diller – a great lady, but this reminds me of the passing of my own grandmother back in May. who would have been 95 and who died in her sleep too.

When you are in your 90s and suffer an injury, I think you get a little depressed. Ms. Diller was probably ready to go and was fortunate to pass peacefully in… Read more »

And I loved her on B&B, got to see her last appearance she did a few months ago on there. And love that Rosie O’Donnell had a one hour tribute to her last year with all her old costumes around and the tribute to her from the female comedians who were inspired by her like Chelsea Handler, Kathy Griffin, Loni Love, etc.
