    Passed away at 83. I didn't realize she never got divorced from Jack Klugman.

    I hate it to say it, but frankly I'm surprised she was still alive. I always use her as the prime example of the 70s "game show celebrity".

    Can't blame you, her last credited appearance was a TV movie in 1980.

    True.

    Jaye P. Morgan is the other one that comes to mind.

    Still, Brett Somers on Match Game never failed to make me laugh, whereas Jaye P. Morgan's skank schtick got boring after I'd seen it two or three times.

    I never saw Her on Match game, but I can't stop thinking about the part in Private Parts where They do the Match Game spoof. I think she was one of the pseudo contestants.

    Many a "sick day" when home from school and feeling miserable, I tuned in to "Match Game" and Brett Somers. A good laugh always helped. I daresay she's a permanent part of many lives. What a great legacy she has.

    RIP Brett
