The funny lady got serious for U.S. news show Access Hollywood during a break from filming on her new TV hit Hot in Cleveland and paid tribute to her "dear personal friend".
She said, "We had a date for lunch, he and his wife..., we have lunch about every two weeks, so we had a lunch date next Tuesday that we'll have to cancel."
