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).

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
    • I love me some Lauren but had to laugh at her lecturing Sally and Summer on women treating women well. Send them an ice cream sundae why don’t you Lauren?
