I have a fake HUGE ruby ring from her.

My parents were in Las Vegas at a show, and Phyllis threw out bunches of rings to the audience. Many many many years ago and I still have it.

She was always one of my favorite personalities. I read a lot of her books when I was a kid. She was so funny!

Fang's probably not happy that she's joining him.

Oh no! She was a genuinely funny person and I always enjoyed her jokes. RIP, Phyllis.

R.I.P., Phyllis. I haven't seen here on t.v. for years, but sure enjoyed her whenever I did see her.

Always liked her. And I still remember her on The Pruitts of Southhampton. Few seem to remember that show but I thought it was great, wayyyyyyyyyy back when.

Her greatest asset was being able to laugh at herself, not be thin-skinned and take everything in an offensive way as they can, like so many around (including here) are so prone to do. Need more people willing to laugh and enjoy life.

RIP Ms. Diller. You're still a beauty in my book.

I liked her, thought she was very funny. You need a thick skin to be that business. If I were a celebrity I would never read a newspaper or turn on the news, my skin is not thick at all. Laughter is what we all need.

and she wasn't obscene!!! That would sure be refreshing to find one like that these days. I don't mind naughty, but dislike obscene.

Her laugh was real! I loved her comedy-clean,mostly aimed at herself or "Fang", hysterically funny!

wm windham,

Didn't know that one of my favorite.
I saw a nice interview with Joan Rivers who spoke lovingly and respectfully about Phyliss,

She was so funny. And like redcurls said, not obscene. Just goes to show you can be very funny without throwing the F word around and talking disgustingly foul.

I loved her on Hollywood Squares. Also loved Paul Lynd (Uncle Arthur) haha.
