Edie Adams Interview With Josh Mills And Becky Greenlaw

EK fan Mary Lou Cassidy brought to our attention a six part interview that Doug Norwine of Heritage Auction Galleries did with Edie's son Josh Mills and her assistant Becky Greenlaw as part of their last celebrity memorabilia auction which took place from June 5-7, 2009.

Each segment is about 7 minutes. The first five feature Josh and Becky discussing Edie and Ernie; the sixth shows Edie's gowns and dresses which are up for auction with either Josh or Becky discussing their history:

PART 1 PART 2 PART 3 PART 4 PART 5 PART 6

We thank Mary for digging these out for all EK fans to see; they are not easy to find on the site.

One very interesting item that sold was for $1314.50 was EK's famous poker table! That's probably a lot less than Ernie would have lost in a typical night of gambling.

Until next time, "It's Been Real!"

Sorry for the off-topic reply - I did not see any other way to reach you in your Blog and wanted to let you know about the passing of a Ernie Kovacs cast member, Joseph Earley. Here is a link to his Obit:

Bilka,

Not a problem. Thanks for letting us know. Here's a direct link to Joe's obituary.

Joe was on Ernie's first show from Philly "Three To Get Ready" and was hired at the same time as Edie Adams. He then moved on to "Ernie In Kovacsland" and also played "Luigi The Barber" on "Kovacs On The Corner".

Bilka, if you ever need to contact us via email here is the way to do it :
