"Fruitcake Lady" From Jay Leno

Last night, Jay Leno announced this woman's death. I'll miss her segment - it was a funny one.

RIP Fruitcake Lady

I'm very dissapointed that this thread didn't get a bigger response. This lady was an American institution whether you liked Letterman better or not. She embodied everything most of us want to be at that age (save Skidmarks) and she was very entertaining.

I loved the fruitcake lady! She was one of the funniest segments ever on a late night show, very sad indeed that she's passed away! May she rest in peace.

Oh man. I am so sad to hear this. I would never miss the Leno show when I knew she would be on. What I enjoyed most was her sitting in her chair, with the camera angle right at the back of her head. When she would watch the television questions, the shake of her head alone had me rolling over in laughter.

And yes, very blunt!

May she rest in peace!!!!  sorry   pray

An absolutely hilarious lady. I have a feeling they had to do a few takes because I'm sure she swore like a sailor in some of them.

Yeah, she was probably my favorite part of the Tonight Show behind "Headlines". I was also watching that episode last night and the flashbacks to her first appearance back in 2000 cooking with Jay and Mel Gibson. Than Cuba Gooding.... than Tom Cruise. Those were hilarious. Jay almost had to forcefully separate her and Tom Cruise if you know what i mean...  Wink

RIP

Damm that is too bad.

Only caught a few of her appearances but they where worth it.
