Jeff3Here's a tip—"George Jefferson" is cheap

Ned-WertimerNed Wertimer, one of TV's most famous doormen (he was "Ralph" on The Jeffersons), has passed away at 89. I'd just met him a couple of years ago at a Hollywood Show. He and Marla Gibbs are tied with Carla Laemmle for the most inexpensive stars I've ever met—$5 apiece. I almost forgot to pay their measly fee and Wertimer turned to me and asked, in a way that tip-grubbing "Ralph" would've loved, "Are you gonna pay us?"
