Eartha Kitt, a singer, dancer and actress, was born in South Carolina to a family working in the cotton fields, and went on to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality before passing away on Christmas Day, at the age of 81. She had been battling colon cancer.
Best known for her TV role in the original Batman series, starring as Batman's female nemesis, The Catwoman, Kitt rose to fame using her trademark purr to allure men across the country. Call it irony or fate, but Kitt was also known for her Christmas classic, "Santa Baby."
Our thoughts and condolences from Devon Lohan to Ms. Kitt's family. She was always my favorite Catwoman.
