Eydie Gorme, a popular nightclub and television singer as a solo act and as a team with her husband, Steve Lawrence, has died. She was 84. Gorme, who also had a huge solo hit in 1963 with "Blame it on the Bossa Nova," died Saturday at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas following a brief, undisclosed illness, said her publicist, Howard Bragman.

She had a gorgeous voice, and I always thought that though she was famous, she was under-rated as a singer, and deserved greater fame.

RIP.

This breaks my heart! I was just listening to her on my car CD player. She was a class act all the way. May she rest in peace. I am going to cry. Pretty soon they will all be gone. Thank you Eydie for so much wonderful music!

Steve and Eydie, as singles and as a duo, possessed an overabundance of raw talent. They lit up every stage they ever appeared on. I feel privileged for having had the opportunity to witness most of both of their careers. They truly personified great entertainment. Alas, they’re not makin’ ‘em like that anymore. RIP, Eydie!

I loved Steve and Eydie. They were great entertainers - together and individually. They lit up the stage with their talent, their love for one another, their enjoyment of what they were doing and sharing it with the audience. They were a beautiful couple. Very sad news.
Prayers for Steve Lawrence and his family.

An interviewer asked them how they managed to make their show biz marriage last so long.

Steve quipped, "In all our years of marriage we have never had a serious conversation."

The strategy evidently worked.

Nobody lives forever, even in Vegas.

I grew up in the SoCal Vegas swingin´ Johnny Carson Rat Pack 60´s thing. My mom and dad weren´t actually into it, if you get my drift, but they were totally into the weekend pool-party suburban wannabe stuff (we never had a pool), and I liked it. They loved it. I was a little dorky kid during those days, but I remember it all. I do.

What I didn´t know for sure I figured out later. It was great. Fabulous. Men were men, women were fantastic. I´m still like that.

Godspeed, Eydie. I remember you, hotstuff.

Without question the best female pop/jazz singer of the 1960s - - and one of the greatest ever.

She was a huge talent - - and a lovely lady. Her marriage to Steve Lawrence helped bridge the worlds of Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jewry.

RIP, amazing lady. And condolences to Steve - - a real mensch.

I remember them well from the Tonight Show with JC and they were the most adorable and in-love couple I´ve ever seen in show biz. Really aging myself here, too, but I think I had her 45, "Blame It on the Bossa Nova" - and I´m sure many of us still know the words to his big single, "Go Away, Little Girl", too. Anyway, what a wonderful person. Glad she had a good long life (though was sorry to read that one of their sons died young). RIP..

Jesse Jackson has decided to weigh in on the inflammatory comments that Phil Robertson made to GQ about gays and African Americans. In an interview with Drew Magary, the "Duck Dynasty" star said the Nazis needed Jesus, that he never saw the mistreatment of African Americans while growing up in Louisiana before the civil rights era and that homosexuality was a sin. A&E has already suspended Robertson, but Reverend Jackson, his Rainbow PUSH Coalition and GLAAD are demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel´s CEO, to discuss the future of all "Duck Dynasty" memorabilia or content.

President Obama acknowledged on Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than a year ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting. Their relationship came into question on Tuesday at the deportation hearing of his uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed in testimony for the first time that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At

WASHINGTON - Republican Senator Marco Rubio, shifting his tone on the U.S. immigration bill he helped to write, said on Tuesday he is now fully satisfied that the measure will do what it takes to secure the southern border with Mexico.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery."

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
