So sad. I loved Georgette. She was so sweet and kind, and unlike most sitcoms today that would have thought it was so funny and "edgy" to have her become a harridan, she remained sweet and kind to the end. Georgia just had a radiance to her. 


I guess it must have been sudden, as she had a brief role on One Day At a Time last year and looked about the same as she has for a while. 


I hope she knew how many fans she had.

She was so effortlessly lovable. Variety mentioned she was a Christian Scientist, so that probably had something to do with the suddenness of her death. Good to know she was working as long as she could.

Not only was she wonderful as Georgette, she was hilarious as Shirley Burleigh on Coach. I loved the episode where Howard and Shirley are driving Hayden and Christine insane, trying to be their best friends. "Pardon me for yelling!" she chirped in that famous baby voice. It still cracks me up all these years later. Hard to believe that she's the second Coach performer we've lost in recent weeks, after Katherine Helmond.


It's also hard to believe that she was in reality young enough to play Ted Knight's daughter and instead played his wife (they were nearly 25 years apart in age). The age gap didn't seem noticeable at all when watching them onscreen together. 


May she rest in peace. She was one of a kind.

And I forgot about freakin’ Cloris Leachman at 92.


So did I!!! Shame on us. Though to be fair, Cloris wasn't on much during the time Georgia became a regular and left altogether not too long afterwards (and had the Phyllis spinoff).

    • My parents got the Pfizer too and have been fine. I'm no scientist in the least but judging by news of some recent trials against a couple variants, Pfizer seems to be the current gold standard and Moderna is also very good.   The UK system is very much 'book the appointment, go to the vaccine location, and you get what they give you on the day.' Astra Zeneca has been officially associated with some blood clots but, unlike J&J, the UK is unwilling to pause its rollout.
    • My parents got the Pfizer and have been fine. They've been out and about with mask with no problems. I was vaccinated with the Moderna (not my choice). I've been doing well going out sparingly with mask with no problems.    My aunt and uncle took the Johnson & Johnson with no problems.   If you feel uneasy wait for the Moderna or Pfizer to be available.    Here in Texas the Moderna is more available one. They've stopped giving the Johnson & Johnson.
    • Jesus. So Brandi & Kary manage to duck accountability and uncomfortable questions because of 'audio issues'? WTF? We've been waiting all season to see them get called out because god knows Stephanie isn't going to do it for us!   I swear, Dallas cannot get out of its own damn way sometimes. I love and support the show, I make a point to watch because I think it is worth saving. However, it is making its own cancellation bed with this. Reunion should have been about rescuing this season's RHOD!     LOL it is seriously Bad News Day in the RH universe today.        LOL Gamble is overhyped, though she carried the show on her back during the earlier seasons. No replacement for Gina and Lydia, however.   And Jackie... 
    • I've been asked to book a vaccine appointment! I'm pro-vaccines and ready to do so. However, I am getting increasingly nervous about the news reports regarding blood clots + Astra Zeneca. I am in the UK and will probably be offered the AZ jab as they are saving the Moderna ones for the Under-30s. I'm actually not sure what to do as I'm starting to feel stressed about it. I'm not sure I can request my choice of jab, (i.e. Pfizer, which looks fairly effective against some of the variants).
