'Dukes of Melrose' episode marks final TV appearance of the late Phyllis Diller

Phyllis Diller Dukes Of Melrose

Tomorrow’s episode of Dukes of Melrose marks the final television appearance of legendary comedienne — and unlikely fashion icon — Phyllis Diller.

When Cameron Silver pays a visit to Diller in the hopes of raiding her closet, the comedienne — who filmed her appearance on the Bravo reality show before she passed away at the age of 95 last August — leads the Decades owner to a room lined with racks of the eccentric clothes and outrageous wigs that were her sartorial trademark. Calling the comedienne “a fashion icon in her own right,” Silver says that Diller’s closet “represents a life well lived…and shopped.”
