We felt more than a pang of sadness when we learned that Garry Marshall died yesterday. We loved his TV shows: The Odd Couple, Happy Days, and especially Laverne & Shirley. Not to mention his best movie – Pretty Woman. All his productions had things in common: they were all fun but uplifting stories about human nature. He really enjoyed people and their eccentricities. While working for Star magazine, I had the pleasure of meeting Garry once in the green room of a daytime talk show. We were both guests waiting to be called on camera and I was a bit nervous because sometimes celebrities aren’t so friendly to tabloid reporters. But as soon as Garry spotted me, he sat down beside me and started asking questions about my job- he was fascinated. And he was funny and charming. An exceptionally nice man who made the world a better place. (Above, Garry and Kate Hudson promoting “Mother’s Day.”)
