Eartha Kitt Dies

Posted by Media Outrage on December 25, 2008


Legendary actress Eartha Kitt has died at the age of 81, after battling colon cancer. Eartha Kitt died on Thursday according to a family friend.

Via AP:

A family friend says Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died. She was 81.

Andrew Freedman says Kitt died Thursday of colon cancer and was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York.

Kitt, a self-proclaimed “sex kitten” famous for her catlike purr, was one of America’s most versatile performers, winning two Emmys and getting a third nomination. She also was nominated for two Tony Awards and a Grammy.

Mediaoutrage– We remember Eartha Kitt’s work as Cat Woman in the series Batman. We also remember Ms. Kitt for her role as Lady Elouise in Boomerang with Eddie Murphy. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Eartha’s family and friends during their time of loss.

    She seemed like one of those people who would live to at least her late 90’s. Seems so sudden and unexpected to those who didn’t know what she was dealing with as far as her health was concerned. R.I.P
