– Teri Garr, 75, a breath of fresh air first discovered in the regular cast of the “Sonny and Cher Show” back in the 1970s, is doing “fine” after her recent admittance to a hospital for a medical emergency that is hoped may have just been the result of “dehydration”. Garr was rushed to a San Fernando Valley medical facility from her home Monday, December 30, 2019, with what was suspected to possibly be a stroke.


The mirthful, alluring actress who went on to star in “Tootsie”, “Young Frankenstein”, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and many other motion pictures, had been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1999. In 2006 she suffered a brain aneurism, was hospitalized and remained in a coma for a week before recovering.

In addition to acting in numerous movies, Teri Garr was a frequent guest of David Letterman and Jay Leno on nighttime television talk shows. She also appeared in major television situation comedy episodes as a guest star, including “Friends”, and hosted Saturday Night Live four times during the run of that program.

Garr was nominated Best Supporting Actress in 1983 for her role in “Tootsie”, starring Dustin Hoffman. She has received additional acclaim by peers in the industry, including nominations by members of several professional organizations for her work as an outstanding Best Supporting Actress in several other roles.

SPEED BUMPS: Flooring It Through Hollywood”, an autobiography, was published in 2006 (cover of the book’s cover inserted above).
