Legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller has died at the age of 95, TMZ is reporting. The funny lady was known to daytime audiences as Gladys, the comedic partner-in-crime of Darlene Conley‘s Sally Spectra. Gladys was most recently seen in March of this year when she officiated at Eric and Stephanie’s wedding.
“One of my great joys was working with her,” Daniel McVicar (ex-Clarke) posted to Facebook. “I felt like I was Bob Hope.”
Diller also made an appearance in the mid-’80s on AS THE WORLD TURNS as Fairy Godmother to Marcy, played by Marisa Tomei. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends at this difficult time.
