Carol Burnett Remembers 'Carol Burnett Show' Co-Star Tim Conway After His Death

Carol Burnett is paying tribute to her former The Carol Burnett Show co-star Tim Conway, who passed away at the age of 85.

“I’m heartbroken,” the 86-year-old actress and comedian told Deadline. “He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He’ll be in my heart forever.”

Tim had been suffering from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH), which is when excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) accumulates in the brain’s ventricles and causes many side effects.

Tim began working on The Carol Burnett Show in 1975 and won Emmys for his work in 1973 (where he acted as a guest), 1977 and 1978.

Kaley Cuoco Slams Rumor She Snubbed Carol Burnett at Golden Globes 2019

Kaley Cuoco took to her Instagram Story on Monday (January 7) to slam a rumor that she didn’t participate in a standing ovation for Carol Burnett at the 2019 Golden Globes.

Carol received the first ever Carol Burnett Award at the show and gave a moving speech.

“There’s one thing I want to address, which again I don’t normally do. I was reading some comments about the evening, and I saw a bunch of people posting that I didn’t stand up during Carol Burnett‘s speech. Are you crazy? Not only was I standing, I was bawling,” Kaley said. “You can better believe that I was standing and completely touched by her speech—a speech that I will never forget and that I will be able to tell my own children that I was in the room that day. And the words she spoke touched me to my core. So, I don’t know what show you were watching to go and tell me that I didn’t stand for Carol Burnett and how disappointed you were in me.”

“She’s one of my favorite people and has truly, like I said, paved the way for my career and a bunch of silly women like me who get to mess around and make jokes on camera and make fun of themselves because of what Carol Burnett did,” she continued. “So don’t come at me. I know what I was doing, and I was standing. With that being said it was a magical evening. I am so grateful for my husband and my glam squad and that our jobs give us nights like this. I’m ready to go to bed now and go to work tomorrow at The Big Bang.”

Carol Burnett Receiving Self-Titled Award at Golden Globes 2019!

Carol Burnett steps out on the red carpet at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday (January 6) at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The legendary actress will be receiving the self-titled Carol Burnett Award during the event this evening. She met up with actress Amy Adams on the red carpet.

“When I was a kid growing up out here in Hollywood with my grandmother, we would go to the premieres and hang over the ropes,” Carol said on the red carpet (via People). “I had my little autograph book with me and whenever one of them stopped, it meant so much to me at that time. So I know that when somebody feels that way towards all of us, you have to pay back.”

“I don’t answer every letter, but I answer mostly [the ones] from kids,” she added. “I’m getting fan mail from 10-year-olds! If they leave me a phone number, I’ll call ’em.”

FYI: Carol is wearing Bob Mackie.
