Not the bust part, but the thin frame, hair, etc.. fragile features.


Doris Roberts was 90 when she passed, and I for one never would have guessed she was that old.

I loved SOAP from the beginning. And Chuck and Bob's comment when "they" were introduced to Jessica always made me LOL.

RIP Katherine Helmond

She also played the part of the team owner in the later episodes of 'Coach'.

It wasn't sad where she and her husband were concerned--theirs was a conscious decision not to have children.

Also, I remember her mentioning often that she was 10 years older than her husband. So often, in fact, that people (i.e., Johnny Carson) felt comfortable bringing it up on program appearances. Turns out she'd shaved five years off her age during the height of her popularity, and was actually 15 years older.

I'll have to admit, Katherine Helmond always had a hot element to her, yet did sport a more experienced, matriarchal, and distinguished presence. It was an unusual combination, but it worked very well for her on two TV comedy shows. And it also didn't hurt that she was a native Texan (She's from Galveston). Certainly a fine, comedic talent who will be missed.
