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. Gorme was a successful band singer and nightclub entertainer when she was invited to join the cast of Steve Allen´s local New York television show in 1953. She sang solos and also did duets and comedy skits with Lawrence, a rising young singer who had joined

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

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
