American actress, comedian, and musician Judy Tenuta also plays music that is comical. She was well-known for her outrageous and outspoken stage persona, “The Love Goddess,” which mixed insult comedy, observational humor, self-promotion, and sexual onstage antics.
Tenuta died on Thursday in the late afternoon at her Los Angeles home, according to publicist Roger Neal. The death was caused by ovarian cancer.
It was always a “great time to be around her,” Neal remarked. “She was a very witty, amazing performer.”
Neal noted that although Tenuta had given her birthdate as November 7, 1956, she was actually born in 1949. She was a traditionalist who would never reveal her true age, but since she’s passed away, we may.
Is Judy Tenuta Married?
It was unknown who Judy Tenuta’s husband was when she passed away. Emo Philips and Judy Tenuta were previously married in 1988.
Tenuta was an outspoken advocate for gay rights and had a devoted following in the LGBT community. Tenuta started her career by regularly performing at gay bars and clubs in the Chicago region, and she continued to sing at Gay Pride festivals and events all over the country until her death.
