Tammy Faye Bakker is today making lemonade with the Lord


Tammy Faye Messner, one half of the best comedy act of the 1980s, The Jim and Tammy Faye Show aka The PTL Club, has died at age 65.

Along with her then husband Jim Bakker, she provided countless hours of entertainment to millions during the Miami Vice years, first as a puppet act, then as a Christian talk show hostess on The PTL Club, and finally as the owner of an air-conditioned doghouse and a crying, make-up running, spurned wife whose high-living husband was banging church secretary Jessica Hahn.

Through it all, and later through her illness, she wore her trademark make-up well, keeping a happy face while repeating, "If life gives you lemons, you just make lemonade."

So long, Tammy Faye!
