"She Left Her Blank In San Diego."

Brett Somers is the butt of the joke on this episode of Match Game '74.

RIP: Brett Somers

I must confess that all I know about Brett Somers I learned from watching Match Game.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketIf all she'd ever done was Match Game hers would still be a pivotal career; bantering with Charles Nelson Reilly like she did through nine seasons must have enervated untold numbers of young homos to consider repartee as a permanent avocation.

But Somers was smart (she ran away to New York at 17) and she was talented (her resume is impressive) and we've already established she was funny. But I never knew she was married to Jack Klugman, nor that she played Siress Belloby on the original Battlestar Galactica.

Somers died Saturday of cancer, aged 83.
