Personal Quote:

[on her book "You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again" in People magazine] I'm just being honest. I didn't write the book to get back in the business. I had to accept the fact that I wasn't in the business before I wrote the book.


She died from cancer at her apartment in West Hollywood, CA. She had been diagnosed with cancer in August 2001. See more »
