Wendy Jo Sperber has died.

Actress WENDIE JO SPERBER, who starred alongside TOM HANKS in the hit ‘80s sitcom “Bosom Buddies,” passed away Tuesday evening after a long battle with breast cancer, according to her publicist. She was 46. Sperber was a prolific sitcom and movie star; she also appeared in the ‘80s sitcom “Private Benjamin” and had more recently starred on the NBC hit “Will & Grace,” as well as in movies like ‘Back to the Future.’ The comedienne also founded the weSPARK Cancer Support Center in 2001. Hanks released the following statement on Sperber: “The memory of Wendie Jo is that of a walking inspiration. She met the challenges of her illness with love, cheer, joy, altruism through weSPARK, and an unstoppable supply of Goodness. We are going to miss her as surely as we are all better for knowing her.”

You’d all recognize this gal.  I blog on this because when I lived in Los Angeles in the mid-90s I almost got set up on a blind date with her.  I knew a girl who was friends with her, and she said that Wendy Jo had just got out of a relationship and was looking to go out with some new people, and that I was just her type.  But, for one reason or another it never happened.  How weird.
