The daughter of former U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale and wife of rocker Chan Poling has died at the age of 51.

Eleanor Mondale lost her battle with brain cancer on Saturday at her home in Minnesota.

Mondale racked up acting credits with small parts in Drop Dead Fred, Three's Company and Dynasty and later carved out a career as a showbiz reporter hosting U.S. TV and radio entertainment news shows.

She also attracted plenty of attention for her love life after her alleged affair with rocker Warren Zevon and her romance with comedian James Belushi.

Mondale was married twice before she wed The Suburbs keyboardist Poling in 2005, shortly after she was diagnosed with cancer. »

Kara Kennedy, Eleanor Mondale: Political daughters die within hours of each other

17 September 2011 11:40 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

In a bizarre coincidence, two daughters of noted American politicians have died within hours of each other ... both at the age of 51.

Kara Kennedy Allen, the daughter of Sen. Ted Kennedy, died suddenly of a suspected heart attack on Friday (Sept. 16) night while at a health club. Kennedy was a lung cancer survivor but her brother, Patrick Kennedy, tells NBC that his sister's cancer treatment "took quite a toll on her and weakened her physically ... her heart gave out."

Eleanor Mondale, daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale, died at her Minnesota home on Saturday morning following a several years battle with brain cancer.

"Joan and I must report that our wonderful daughter, Eleanor Mondale Poling, after her long and gutsy battle against cancer, went up to heaven last night to be with her angel," her father writes in an email sent out to family and friends.
