Third Rock from the Sun actress Elmarie Wendel dead aged 89

The 3rd Rock From The Sun star was best known for her role as beloved landlady Mrs Dubcek on the hit 90s sitcom.

On the '90s sitcom, Wendel's character was known for her delightfully gaudy attire and oversexed one-liners.

Wendel was born in a small farming community in Howard County, Iowa, raised in a family of five siblings, and spent a good portion of her childhood moving around with her parents who were singers and dancers.

In the sweet post, she wrote: '#ripelmariewendel you were a great mom and a badass dame'. No cause of death was given.

Pirro stressed that Whoopi got in her face, saying the pissed off talk show host "was this close", gesturing toward her face. Earlier in the same show, she also thanked Goldberg for helping make her book number one on Amazon .

Although Wendel found stardom in '90s, she had been acting since 1961.

However, mainstream recognition would arrive for Wendel after she landed on 3rd Rock from the Sun to play the role of Mrs. Dubcek, the vivacious young-at-heart landlady to the show's covert extraterrestrial Solomon family.

In addition to her role on "3rd Rock", Wendel had credits on "Seinfeld", "Love & War", "Murphy Brown", "Murder, She Wrote", and "Empty Nest". In recent years, she's fielded some voice roles, notably in Illumination Entertainment's 2012 adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax and, in her final performance, in Bethesda Game Studios' 2015 video game, Fallout 4.

News of Wendel's passing began to spread on Sunday morning, with actor Jim Beaver chiming in on the news. "She was raucous, funny, endearing and terribly, terribly sweet". Beaver, who appeared as Happy Doug on 3rd Rock From the Sun, shared kind words about his former co-star. "Goodnight, Mrs Dubcek, wherever you are".
