"BOSOM BUDDIES" ACTRESS SUCCUMBS TO CANCER

Wendie Jo Sperber has died after an eight year battle with breast cancer. I loved Bosom Buddies when it was on and she was one of my favorite comedy actresses. She always made me laugh out loud. She will be missed.

From Fox News/AP:
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. — Actress Wendie Jo Sperber, who starred opposite Tom Hanks on TV's "Bosom Buddies" and who in his words became "a walking inspiration" after she contracted cancer, has died. She was in her 40s.

Sperber died at home Tuesday after an eight-year battle with breast cancer, publicist Jo-Ann Geffen said Wednesday.

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1997, the actress became an advocate for cancer care. In 2001, she founded the weSPARK Cancer Support Center, which provides free emotional support, information and social activities for individuals and families affected by cancer.

Sperber is survived by a son and daughter, her parents, two sisters and a brother.

Nice new pic. Nice room too. But is that a lava lamp in the background to the left of the picture?

Nope - no lava lamps.
