    I was watching "Friends", I had never watched the series when it was popular but my Wife had it on DVD, and was shocked by Kathleen Turner. I know it's not fair, we all get old, but Man!

    She can't sing anymore because of Parkinsons. I agree that it's a tragedy regardless of her political leanings which have always been far Left.

    But she made some great music and played with some great musicians and I especially liked her collaboration with Dolly Parton and Emmylou Harris. They put out an album in 1987 called Trio and over the years I've listened to it in vinyl, Cassette, and CD. Trio II came out ten years after that and my favorite song from that CD is Niel Young's "After the Gold Rush"

    Let's not forget role of the queen in Wonder Woman.
    Here she is with Lynda Carter.

    We can kick Cloris to the curb if we are going to post pics of Linda Carter.

    My paternal grandmother had that. So sad to see the progression....

    All my life until I was in middle school, when we'd visit, that lady would be up before the chickens, making scratch biscuits and a complete breakfast every single morning. By the time she got everyone fed and cleaned up the kitchen, she would start on lunch, and then the same routine for supper. She was always the first one up and the last one to bed every day I knew her when she was healthy.

    When we'd have an annual family reunion at their place, there were too many cousins for beds, so we slept on the living room floor. I remember many a time seeing her step gingerly over all of us grandkids on the floor to get to the kitchen, and shortly after, we'd all wake up to the most amazing smells.

    Between all of that, she still found the time to raise 8 kids (7 to adults) and kept a spotless house and a huge garden. She was such a kind woman and loved her family. Of course she was married to a hateful despicable man who never appreciated her.

    When I got to be middle school aged, she quickly lost the ability to speak. She would just garble incoherently. She was not an educated woman but was sharp as a tack, and you could tell the wheels were still turning in her brain. For several years later, she always carried a pen/pencil and a pad of paper in her pocket and had to write out whatever she wanted to communicate. You could tell she was so frustrated when we couldn't understand her trying to talk to us.

    Finally, when I was in high school, she began falling all the time. I mean multiple times a day. Her writing declined to a state when she couldn't write legibly. She ended up in a nursing home and continued to deteriorate until she was not able to swallow food and quickly passed on. I think her mind was intact until the day she died.

    PSNP is a cruel, cruel disease. I don't wish it on anyone. Sorry for the thread drift and long post. The previous response stirred up some awesome childhood memories and some bittersweet ones as well.

    Many of us look at the photos of what were once beautiful, sexy women and lament how they have changed. We could probably do the same for ourselves, looking at a photo from the distant past and then looking in the mirror when we step out of the shower. Time is cruel to all of us, but no time is even worse.

    This is why entertainers should refrain from voicing political views - they automatically alienate a big portion of their audience.

    It's just bad business.

    I've always been a huge fan of Madeline Kahn. Probably the funniest woman ever in Hollywood. Cloris was a hoot too.
    Gone are the days when a woman could be genuinely funny without self depreciating or raunchy sex jokes.

    Nowadays, silence is akin to preaching conservatism and can get you blackballed nearly as fast. You either pander to the left, or suffer their wrath.

    There are lots of conservative entertainers. They just don't talk about it in public.
