Personal Quote:

(after guesting on a Howard Stern pay-per-view New Year's Eve event) "It was the most disgusting thing I ever saw... and I hope they invite me back."

Trivia:

Divorced her husband in the early 1970s because he'd abused her, and she decided not to tolerate it or let matters go any further. Later compared her situation to that of Nicole Brown Simpson, who'd long tolerated abuse by husband O.J. Simpson - and wound up being murdered. See more »
