Legendary publicist, manager and producer Jay Bernstein -- who was often described as a "starmaker" -- died of a stroke Sunday in Los Angeles at the age of 69. Farrah Fawcett, one of the actresses whose career he managed from the beginning, was reportedly at his bedside. Another of his famous clients, Suzanne Somers, once recalled in an interview that after Bernstein began handling her publicity, "In no time, I had my first major magazine cover story. By the time Jay was finished, I had 55 covers, had been on 60 Minutes and was a household name. I rolled the dice with Jay Bernstein and I won."
