Martin Short’s Wife Passes Away

August 24, 2010

Nancy Dolman, the wife of actor Martin Short, has passed away at the age of 58.

Dolman had been battling cancer since 2007.

My condolences go out to Short and his family.

From the Washington Post:

A spokesman for the L.A. County Coroner’s office says Dolman, 58, was under the care of a private physician at the time of her death. Short’s publicist has not confirmed a cause.

Dolman and Short, who have three grown children, were married for 30 years. The Toronto native was an actress who worked on the sitcom “Soap” before turning her focus to raising a family.


David Letterman Issues Apology

October 6, 2009

David Letterman apologized on the air during his broadcast last night to his wife, Regina, for his revelation last week of his sexual relationships with staff members.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Letterman made the remarks at the start of the taping of his Monday night show on CBS. They were his first public comments since last Thursday when he revealed details of an apparent extortion attempt tied to sexual relationships with his staff members.

The comedian also apologized to his staff, saying, “I’m terribly sorry that I put the staff in that position.” He labeled his mistake as inadvertent because “I just wasn’t thinking ahead.” He thanked the staff for being supportive and for “putting up with something stupid I’ve gotten myself involved in.”

In his monologue, a rueful Mr. Letterman told several jokes related to the incident and the critical reaction to it.

“I got into my car this morning,” Mr. Letterman said, “and even the navigation lady wasn’t speaking to me.”
