Joanne Carson, Johnny Carson's Second Wife, Dies At Age 84

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

Joanne Carson dies aged 84.

We're sad to report the death of Johnny Carson's second wife Joanne Carson.

The former model and TV show host (née Joanne Copeland) had been in bad health and was receiving care in a hospice prior to her death on Friday at the age of 84.

Johnny and Joanne (pictured above at their wedding reception) were married in 1963, a year after the comedian began hosting duties for The Tonight Show, and their marriage lasted until 1972.

Though she may be best known as the iconic host's second spouse, Joanne had a very interesting life herself!

As a Pan Am stewardess in the 1950s, she helped calm an anxious Howard Hughes during a flight. The media mogul later offered her a screen test at RKO Studios, where she worked for a time.

Ms. Carson later became a close friend to author Truman Capote, who died in her home in 1984.

At one point she was encouraged by Capote to write a memoir, but when she refused to provide dirt on some of Hollywood's most famous stars, publishers lost interest in her stories.

She is survived by her two sisters Barbara Abernathy and Shirlee Alters.

May she rest in peace.

Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg has announced that he is prepping the release of his ALL-NEW adaptation of the classic Truman Capote novella Breakfast at Tiffany's for the Broadway stage, which will star Game of Thrones actress - and potential Anastasia Steele - Emilia Clarke as the iconic Holly Golightly and begin performances at Shubert theater in February 2013!

And when we say all-new, we mean it!

He's ignoring all of the adaptations that have been released prior and relying strictly on the original text!

As he explains:
