Penny Marshall Was WAY More Than Laverne and More...

In today's Dirty Laundry, TV icon and esteemed director Penny Marshall was a lot more than Laverne, the coolest Jeopardy contestant story EVER and Bethenny Frankel is alive, but uncomfortable. -LBF

Penny Marshall has died. She was 75. She was famously known for her role as Laverne on "Laverne & Shirley", where her comedic timing was impeccable. But she was also an excellent director and the first woman to direct a feature film that grossed more than $100 million at the box office. (That was "Big" starring Tom Hanks).  She also directed "A League of Their Own", "Awakenings" and Riding in Cars With Boys." She will be missed.
