Quote:Comedian Phyllis Diller -- who paved the way for today's female comics -- died this morning, TMZ has learned.
Sources close to Diller tell us the comedian died in her sleep at her L.A. home, surrounded by family. She was 95.
I met her as a kid, she was friends with out next door neighbor. Nice lady in person, my next door neighbor Virginia and her went to acting school together. RIP Phyllis, you made a lot of people laugh through the years.
