The entertainment world has lost another one.
Comedian Phyllis Diller, the woman who created a stage persona of a wild-haired housewife who was terrible at cooking, died at her Los Angeles home surrounded by her family and loved ones. She was 95.
Diller had reportedly recently fallen, hurting her wrist and hip, and her health had been on the decline ever since. She had been living in hospice care at her home. She also suffered a heart attack back in 1999 and was later fitted with a pacemaker.
Diller began her career in 1952 and rose to fame with her TV specials alongside Bob Hope in the 1960s. She was also known for her unusual laugh.
