Tim Conway's Widow Recounts Their Love Story and His Final Two Weeks Before Death

Tim Conway's Widow Recounts Their Love Story and His Final Two Weeks Before Death

Tim Conway‘s widow Charlene is remembering her late husband as “funny” and “kind” after his death at the age of 85.

On Tuesday, the Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor, who gained fame for his characters on The Carol Burnett Show, died in the Los Angeles area, his rep confirmed to PEOPLE.

Conway had suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH), and showed no signs of Alzheimer’s or dementia.

Charlene, who was married to Tim for 35 years, says that her late husband was “a gift,” telling PEOPLE that he was “truly a gift.”

“People say that nothing is perfect and truly nothing ever is,” she shares. “But we had a marriage that… I feel that the two of us were meant to be together. We were just one mind and heart. And it was 35 years of heaven. I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s true.”

Charlene says she will remember Tim as a “devoted” and “funny” husband and father. (Tim shares six children and one stepdaughter with ex-wife Mary Anne Dalton.)

Tim “instill in the family, all the kids, the grandkids, that humor does help us deal with horrific experiences,” she explains. “It’s a way out. For him, it was a way out. It didn’t mean he felt or grieved any less. That was his outlet for it.”

Charlene also notes that Tim stayed “humble” despite being a celebrity.

“He was always shocked and surprised when other celebrities knew who he was,” she explains. “He truly was. He and Harvey toured for ten years doing this two-man show in theaters all across the country, and he was always surprised that there were standing ovations and crowds around the stage door, entrance and exit.”

“That’s how humble he was,” she continues. “He never took his celebrity for granted, nor did he wallow in it.”

“When he did those shows, when he and Harvey were touring, I was with them and I wasn’t surprised that people stood up, and I wasn’t surprised that there were crowds at the stage door,” she adds. “And they were all ages, not just people who spent 11 years watching the Carol Burnett Show, but there were the kids who learned about these folks on the syndicated version, and they had their kids.”

Thanking fans for the “outpouring” of support and love

Travis Tritt's Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Car Crash Following Myrtle Beach Show

Travis Tritt's Tour Bus Involved in Fatal Car Crash Following Myrtle Beach Show

Country music star Travis Tritt’s tour bus was involved in a fatal car accident after a performance in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Early Saturday morning, Tritt’s tour bus was driving along Veteran’s Highway when a vehicle driving the wrong way crashed into another car around 3:30 a.m. The tour bus allegedly was involved in the tail-end of the accident.

Two people were killed in the early morning crash, according to local reports.

Tritt, 56, had played a show at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach just hours before the incident. The singer tweeted a picture of the wreck, with one car crashed head-on with another causing massive damage to both vehicles.

We were just involved in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach. Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God bless those who died. pic.twitter.com/zcfRK7XxFc

“We were just involved in a fatal accident with a driver going the wrong way on Veteran’s Highway as we were leaving Myrtle Beach. Thank God we are all okay. I feel so bad for those who died needlessly tonight. I’m really shaken up by what I witnessed. God Bless those who died,” Tritt captioned the photo.

“We sustained minor damage as we tried to avoid the crash site in front of us,” he added in another tweet. “Bus damage can be fixed, but lives cannot be replaced. I’m so incredibly sad for those who lost their lives tonight.”

The details and names of those who died in the crash have not been officially released yet, but Tritt strongly suggested the fatal accident was caused by a drunk driver.

Tritt tweeted that he was told the car accident was caused by “someone who was obviously driving drunk or impaired.” The Georgia native also advised fans on Twitter to always drive sober.

I beg everyone to please, please, please drive sober. Know when to admit that you are too impaired to drive.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Speaks Out After Being Dropkicked by an 'Idiot' During Event in South Africa

Arnold Schwarzenegger Speaks Out After Being Dropkicked by an 'Idiot' During Event in South Africa

Arnold Schwarzenegger was dropkicked from behind by an “idiot” while meeting with fans, and the whole thing was caught on video.

The Terminator actor has been in South Africa and was at a sporting event there when the dropkick took place. The 71-year-old former Governor of California took the time to sign autographs and chat with fans during a jump-rope competition for the Arnold Classic Africa in Johannesburg.

Just as Schwarzenegger went to hand the phone he was using to film with back to someone in the crowd, a man rushed behind him and went airborne as he dropkicked him, thus sending the action star to the crowd as he falls forward.

One fan amongst the crown captured the scene and posted it to Twitter on Saturday morning.

“I’m not an etiquette expert, but pretty sure if you want to ask Arnold Schwarzenegger for a Lamborghini, flying kicking him in the back is not a good start,” the video was captioned.

Schwarzenegger later tweeted that he was fine and initially thought he had been simply “jostled by the crowd” about an hour after the video was posted.

Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.

Mariah Carey Gets a Touch-Up in the Middle of Her Performance at Cannes Film Festival Party

Mariah Carey never disappoints!

The 49-year-old songstress gave a surprise performance during Friday night’s Chopard party at the Cannes Film Festival, wearing a long sparkly black dress paired with a diamond headband and bangle.

At one point during her performance, the pop star’s glam team came out on stage for a quick touch-up, powdering Carey’s nose, fixing her hair and shining the Chopard diamond bangle on her wrist.

“Of course, @mariahcarey got a touch-up in the middle of her 30-minute set,” Variety journalist Marc Malkin wrote on Instagram on Friday alongside footage of the moment.

Carey’s set included many of her hit songs, from “Touch My Body” to “Hero,” according to Twitter videos from Variety‘s Ramin Setoodeh.

Carey is performing at the AmfAR gala later during the festival, but arrived in France a few days early to surprise guests at the Chopard party, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Also during her Cannes set, the star also drank water from a plastic cup while on stage, telling the audience not to take photos of her with the cup.

“Don’t take my picture with this because it’s very tacky,” she said jokingly in one video posted by Setoodeh.

Carey’s performance at Cannes comes after she rocked the stage at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards earlier this month.

At the awards show, the R&B legend performed a medley of hits — including “A No No,” “Always Be My Baby,” “Emotions,” “We Belong Together” and “Hero” — before Jennifer Hudson presented her with the prestigious icon award.
