Judy Tenuta, "Love Goddess," dies

She's dead. The self-styled "Love Goddess" rose to fame in the 1980s with her eye-catching stage presence & scathing. 

Funny thoughts on love, relationships, religion, & more. 

She was a Grammy candidate, a renowned author, & a lovely & bizarre presence in comedy. 

Tenuta's management confirmed her death to The Seattle Times. 

72-year-old Tenuta grew up outside of Chicago & came up in the city's comedy scene. She quickly distinguished herself with a comedic style.

All delivered with oddball vocal deliveries, semi-affectionate flirtations with the audience, & the sounds of her ever-present accordion. 

Tenuta became a national star in 1987 when she appeared on HBO's Women Of The Night with Ellen DeGeneres, Paula Poundstone, Lizz Winstead, & Rita Rudner.
