Who Will Carry On the Dear Abby Advice Column?
It seems that Pauline Phillips was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2002 but by the time the family actually revealed her illness, Pauline’s daughter Jeanne Phillips was already the sole author for the “Dear Abby” column. Up to that point, she was already helping her mother with the column.
According to Jeanne, she will continue her mother’s legacy and the column will go on.
TMZ said Jeanne Phillips plans to continue her mother’s legacy. “I have lost my mother, my mentor and my best friend,” she said. “My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of compassion, commitment and positive social change.” (SOURCE)
Ever Wonder Where and When Dear Abby Got Her Start?
According to ABC, before becoming “Dear Abby,” Pauline Phillips was a modest, 37-year-old stay-at-home mom. In 1956, she saw an advice column in the San Francisco Chronicle and told the paper she could do better, ABC reported. From there, she launched a career that made “Dear Abby” a comforting household name.
Phillips’ column competed for decades with the advice column of Ann Landers, written by her twin sister, Esther Friedman Lederer. Their relationship was stormy in their early adult years, but later they regained the close relationship they had growing up in Sioux City, Iowa. (SOURCE)
