Pull out those Vanderbilt jeans I know you’ve kept all these years and hang ’em at half-mast, because a denim icon is now in heaven, slathering the angels with jeans that fit like the skin on a grape. Socialite, heiress, artist, jeans mogul, author, actress, and mother of The Silver Fox, Gloria Vanderbilt, died of stomach cancer at her home this morning while surrounded by her loved ones. She was 95.
Cats are better than people and I mourn them as such, so this is an extra sad for me. And Grumpy Cat in particular is an internet icon and an icon for grumpy bitches everywhere. Grumpy Cat (born name: Tardar Sauce has sadly passed away at the very young age of 7.
Heaven just got slathered with a million gallons of charisma and glamour after Peggy Lipton, Doris Day, and Elsa Patton sashayed on through the gates together. It’s surprising that it’s not raining here right now, because you’d think all of the angels in heaven would be bawling over being in the presence of three icons at the same time.
Elsa Patton, or La Bruja as I called her, twirled up to the universe over the Mother’s Day weekend and is now a star in the sky after being a star on earth. She was 84.
One of the last big icons of the Golden Age of Hollywood and blond-topped ray of human sunshine, Doris Day, died early this morning at her home in Carmel Valley, CA. She was with her loved ones at the time, which I’m guessing included several dog friends since Doris Day was a noted warrior for the furries (furries, as animals!). She was 97.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Peggy Lipton, who starred on two hit shows separated by two decades in-between (The Mod Squad and Twin Peaks), has died. She was 72.
