Popular psychologist Joyce Brothers dead at age 85
Joyce Brothers, a pioneering TV psychologist whose 1950s advice show opened doors for many others today, died Monday in New York City at age 85, her longtime publicist said.
Brothers offered advice on psychological issues at a time when such subjects were rarely discussed on TV. Her advice show in the 1950s was only part of her career, which included syndicated columnist, author, and television and film personality.
The cause of death was not immediately made public, publicist Sanford Brokaw said.
Brothers first gained fame on a game show and went on to publish 15 books and make cameo appearances on popular shows including Happy Days and The Simpsons. She visited Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show nearly 100 times.
