Eartha No Longer of This Eartha

12/26/2008 4:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Eartha Kitt -- the legendary actress, singer and dancer -- died yesterday of colon cancer. She was 81.

Kitt was perhaps best known for her role as Catwoman on 60s TV series "Batman" -- a role that was later played with diminishing success by Michelle Pfeiffer and Halle Berry.

She recently won back-to-back Daytime Emmy awards for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for the show "The Emperor's New School."

Sad. An ageless, gutsy, talented lady. She had a beautifil daughter named Kitt. I wonder what she's doing now.

"Eartha No Longer of This Eartha"?! Man, someone needs to fire your obit writer. What a tacky headline to eulogize an icon.
Not that TMZ is known for it's high brow anything, but come on guys. Have some respect.

I caught the headline (link to your website/article) "Eartha No Longer of This Eartha" on 'GOOGLE (news)'. Although I am 'not' personally offended by the wording of the headline, it merely confirms that the TMZ crew are really just a bunch of a**holes.

Whoever thought one person could put so much thought and effort in such a flashy and tacky headline surrounding someone's death.

Rest in peace Eartha. Your influence is will always be remembered.

TMZ- Please change your headline. Ms. Kitt deserves more respect than that.

She was a beautiful, talented lady and I'm glad she lived so long, although another 10 years would have been great.

Condolences to her beautiful daughter and grandchildren.
