Novelist Sidney Sheldon Dies At 89
Sidney Sheldon -- the male Jackie Collins -- has died. What a fun life. I had no idea he'd won a Tony (for the show "Redhead" with Gwen Verdon), an Emmy (for "I Dream Of Jeannie") AND an Oscar (for the Cary Grant fluff "The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer"). I'm always jealous of people who succeed in multiple areas, especially with different projects or talents. (In other words, Streisand getting an Oscar for acting impresses me more than her getting an Oscar for writing a theme song.) Sheldon always had a lot of fun and knew exactly what he was delivering.
