A couple of things I've always been curious about:

We're told being overweight, even 4-5 pounds causes knee problems. Well, what about bodybuilders who are technically "overweight" but the weight is extra muscle, which is 3 times heavier than fat? Wouldn't the extra weight cause the same problems regardless of what it is? And, if weight alone was the cause, what about people who are 6'8" or taller for whom a normal weight is much higher? Wouldn't they have more knee problems than someone 5'9" weighing 150lbs? I'm 5'11" 170 lbs. I sometimes have knee pain, especially the day after my walk or elliptical workout. (of course I expect it at 66).

And, some doctors will blame Type 2 diabetes on "Insulin Resistance," rather than insufficient insulin production. If someone has insulin resistance, wouldn't they also be resistant to injected insulin? My endocrinologist did a "C-Peptide" test which she said shows insulin production. Mine was in the normal ranges. I asked her, "so...why am I diabetic?" She replied, "Insulin Resistance."
At least she didn't blame me.....

Unfortunately it's Hollywood, so unless someone here gets to to talk to one of her relatives or Rob Reiner, then we will never really know.

I did read a few years ago that she was "black listed" from ever directing again.
She wanted to direct some movies that were to be a big hit, and she was ignored and shunned........or so the article stated.

Seems Hellyweird thought she "lost it" as far as her comedic and directorial mojo went.

Usually when someone has been ousted from something they've done all of their lives, it's a huge kick in the gut.

Personally, I think she just gave up after that. Didn't care anymore. Just let things go. From all the interviews I've seen her in, thats the kind of personality she had.

Too bad. She still had a lot to give. I thought her cameo in Hocus Pocus was absolutely hysterical!

You know you are old when all those people you grew up with that were on TV and in the movies are dropping right and left.

I've read a lot of body builders have bone and joint problems later on in life. Most of them, not from the extra weight, but from the over-exertion they put on their joints during training all those years. They wear out their knees, hips, and ankles years before they would naturally.

And those that took steroids, supposedly that made it worse, and caused blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks later on it their lives.

I would hope that even just five pounds of extra weight wouldn't throw things way out of whack; that covers just about everyone anymore. And I've got to think muscle weight is no different from extra fat as far as joints are concerned. I have read stories of people who are, like, Guinness World Record tall, who do have problems with worn out joints of all kinds. Of course, bigger people have bigger joints, but there must be some outer limits of size that can strain them because physics.
