Goodbye to a great "broad"

Suzanne Pleshette passed away today. I knew her from the old Bob Newhart Show. I was one of the writers. She was really great. A "Broad" in the best sense of the word. Funny, warm, real as they come. A little potty mouth and risque and terrific. I used to tease her by saying "a Pleshette was a small Plesh."
Don't smoke, kids...really. Don't!

Loved Suzanne. Never ever did she seem like a dumb bimbo in any role.

Just read that Paul Newman recently had major cancer surgery and is looking, well, wan. It's hard to watch the Great Ones of entertainment weaken and/or die.

I always thought she was gorgeous. I remember reading Patty Dukes autobiography and her saying Suzanne was like a glamorous Aunt when they worked together on the play, Helen Keller. I thought that was such a great compliment.
