There was a profound sadness inside Gilda. At the same time there was this boundless joy and energy. She fluctuated…They existed side by side. And sometimes she’d just disappear. She would just go away, and maybe that’s when she was sad…If I ever had a problem, I could talk to her. She was totally accessible and one of the wisest women I ever met. She had an understanding of human nature that most people don’t have. That cute Gilda on TV is not the Gilda I saw - although she was incredibly cute in real life. She had that quality, but she was also incredibly bright.

Everyone needs a little, Gilda in their life <3

I just thought she was so cute here, so I had to make a gif. SNL season 2 episode 2.

♫ She’s a Saturday night special (Saturday night). And you know I’m kinda special, and you know that you’ll be back for more.♫
(Or, an homage to the original trio in a long line of women who make Saturday nights so enjoyable)
And then there was Gilda, who was the sweetest, kindest, funniest person. She was so happy on-camera, she had such a happy face on-camera, you really did grow to love her. You understand what it means when people say they “love” a performer, because they’re bringing such happiness into their world. - Steve Martin
