Brett Somers has died at the age of 83. She was best known for her comedy and antics from the popular 70’s show, Match Game. The double entendre humor and off color answers to the fill in the blank questions of ‘Match Game’ made it extremely cutting edge for its time. Brett Somers never failed to amuse us. She also appeared on several episodes of ‘The Odd Couple’ as Oscar Madison’s ex-wife. Rest in peace.
