RIP Bret, We'll Miss You!

If you are a Match Game fan like me, you'll be upset to learn that the Queen of the Match Game, Miss Brett Somers herself, has just passed away at the age of 83. She died Saturday of colon and stomach cancer.

Man that lady was so funny on that show. I guess it helped that they were all drunk as hell. Brett and Charles Nelson Reilly were so cute together; true BFFs. She would steal his answers and he would make some snide lispy remark as he smoked his pipe. And she had such a great laugh, it's hard not to laugh too when you hear her break into chuckles.

Read this to learn more. I love how her son said that she was "irreverent and a self-declared bohemian." Sounds like Brett!

Goodbye Brett, I hope you are Charles are reunited and sharing a drink and a laugh in heaven!
