She was a frequent celebrity partner when $20,000 Pyramid was taped in New York. She told the story that she tried to become a contestant in the early (lean) days of her acting career but was ineligible because she was a SAG/AFTRA member.

This reminds me of the first role I ever saw her in, a movie called The Girl Called Hatter Fox. I remember Conchata distinctly but can't even remember what Hatter Fox looked like, nor the actor who plays Hatter's therapist. I might have watched 2 1/2 men occasionally just to watch Conchata, except then I would have had to watch Charlie Sheen.
