Sheila MacRae
-- who played Alice Kramden on "The Honeymooners," has died. 

MacRae did not appear in the original episodes in 1955.  She appeared on the wildly popular "Jackie Gleason Show" from 1966 - 1970.  The show recreated "The Honeymooners" in featured segments.

The original Alice was played by Audrey Meadows.  She died in 1996.

As for MacRae ... she reportedly died in an actor's nursing home in New Jersey.  Sheila was 93 years old.

She was also the wife of the late, great Gordon McRae, and a great friend of Lucille Ball. TMZ, you should know that, especially from the main dinosaur.

RIP. But I have to say you are being VERY misleading about this. Audrey Meadows was Alice. Anyone else is just a fill in. It is like if they did a remake of Cheers with a different Carla or Seinfeld with a different Elaine and then claimed it was the actress known for that role.

I was gonna put tmz on blast for insinuating Audrey Meadows was not Alice on The Honeymooners. I've never seen the Jackie Gleason Show (although tmz says it was "wildly popular"). Actors have special nursing homes, who knew? Rip grrrrl.

RIP Ms. MacRea. FYI: The nursing home is called the "Actors Home" and it's not just actors, but musicians, dancers, stagehands, etc who reside there. It is set up for those who work in the entertainment industry.
