      I loved her on that show, very funny lady. We are losing all of the older ones much too fast. Saw Jane Wyman died a few days ago. I was a big fan of the show Falcon Crest.I would keep all of them around forever if possible. God Speed, Brett Somers!!!

      Brett Somers was hysterical. She also used to play Oscar Madison’s ex wife on the Odd Couple (were married at one time in real life) … she was always great on there as well.

      Match Game was so before its time.
