Picked this up from USA Today.

Bonnie Franklin was best known for her series “One Day At A Time”, playing a divorced mother of two girls, played by Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli. I remember the series fondly, mostly because I thought all three of them were hot. The show was known for all sorts of dumb firsts, starting with first sitcom based around a divorced woman, but really worked because Franklin, Phillips, and Bertinelli played real, warm, flawed people. Franklin was also an accomplished musical performer, with lead roles in Broadway musicals.

She died today of pancreatic cancer, and is survived by her mother and stepsons.

I was a teen when that show was on TV. I thought it was cute. I also remember thinking Valerie Bertinelli was Smokin' Hot! :)
