The "Poltergeist" star died at 76 today after a series of illnesses. Zelda will forever be loved by the LGBT population for being the first celebrity to do an AIDS PSA campaign -- and a racy one at that! I can still remember sitting near her at the California Pizza Kitchen at the Beverly Center shortly after I moved to Southern California in 1990. My friend Mark and I were waiting for my parents to join us for lunch -- they were driving in from Solvang, where they were vacationing -- when we noticed the diminutive star walk in. Mom and Gary were over an hour late, but seeing Zelda -- my first star sighting in L.A. -- left me struck, and I barely noticed the time. RIP, Zelda.
