Personal Quote:

There are certain things about me that I will never tell to anyone because I am a very private person. But basically what you see is who I am. I'm independent, I do like to be liked, I do look for the good side of life and people. I'm positive, I'm disciplined, I like my life in order, and I'm neat as a pin. I love order and discipline. God, I sound like a Nazi don't I? See more »


Kent cigarettes was one of the sponsors of The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961) and would regularly hand out free cartons of Kents to the cast and crew. During an interview with David Letterman, Mary confessed that she didn't like Kents, so she'd always take her share of the cartons and trade them in at the local store for her preferred brand.
