Brett Somers

Brett Somers, the salty television and stage actress who is best remembered as a tart-tongued panelist on the game show "The Match Game" in the 1970s, died Sept. 15, 2007, according to her personal web site. She was 83. Ms. Somers, Charles Nelson Reilly and Richard Dawson were the mainstays on "The Match Game," on which contestants were asked to fill in the blank at the end of some bawdy sentences, and hope that their guesses matched those of the panelists. Ms. Somers was the only woman to hold a steady seat on the panel, but, with her hearty laugh and "one of the boys" manner, she fit right in.
