Phyllis Diller, an actress and comedian best known for her rapid-fire wit and stand-up comedy act, died Monday at the age of 95.
As a two-time divorcee, Diller had plenty to say about love, marriage and divorce. Her first husband, Sherwood Anderson Diller, reportedly managed her career until the couple's 26-year-year marriage fell apart in 1965. She later married, divorced, remarried and re-divorced entertainer Ward Donovan.
