Bill Cunningham, NEW YORK TIMES Fashion Street-Shooter, Dies @ 87 Comments (0)

6a00d8341c2ca253ef014e602458a6970cBill Cunningham: March 13, 1929-June 25, 2016

Bill Cunningham, long a fixture in New York, where he would dash (and bicycle) around to take photos of real people in real fashion for the paper, has died at 87 from the effects of a stroke he suffered earlier this week

I was so proud to meet and get a picture with the out shooter (who did not take a picture of my outfit) a few years ago.

From that write-up:

I was most excited to meet and chat briefly with Bill Cunningham, the octogenarian fashion shooter for The New York Times. A new documentary on him (Bill Cunningham New York) is getting lots of good press, something he seemed a bit shy about when I mentioned it. “I haven't seen it,” he told me, “but I understand the filmmakers deserve a lot of praise.” He remembered my name when thanking me. It was fascinating to watch him work the line; so many of the queens had no idea who he was and seemed bemused when he would hand them a pad to write down their names. (This old-school method is fail-safe, though, if you want to avoid being Miss Identified.)

If you never saw Bill Cunningham New York (2010), do yourself a favor and see it.

Anton Yelchin, 27, who played Chekov in the latest Star Trek reboots and who was the lead in the remake of Fright Night, has died after exiting his car and being pinned by it against a brick mailbox on his security gate.

Terribly tragic and unforeseen death for a young man with a lot of life and career ahead of him.

Ann Morgan Guilbert Of THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW & THE NANNY Dies @ 87 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-06-15 at 10.35.51 PM(L-R) My Three Sons, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Nanny (Images via CBS)

So sad that Ann Morgan Guilbert has passed away at 87

Guilbert, whose first TV appearance was on My Three Sons in 1961, was the inimitable Millie Helper on The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961-1966) and the equally inimitable Yetta Rosenberg on The Nanny (1993-1999), the latter of which was a role in which Guilbert was virtually unrecognizable. 

Some of Guilbert's other memorable TV roles—she worked right up until her death from cancer—included a lethal spinster on the black-comic “How to Get Rid of Your Wife” episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour (1963), recurring roles on The Fanelli Boys (1990-1991) and Picket Fences (1992-1994), the drily matter-of-fact retirement-villa denizen Evelyn on Seinfeld (1991 & 1996) and the stone-silent Birdy Lamb on HBO's Getting On (2013-2015).
