Barbara Billingsley was an Absent Mom

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in North Hollywood brought together some of Hollywood's older living actors to celebrate and honor them last month. But one mom wasn't feeling her old chipper self.

The TV moms I interviewed on stage included Cloris Leachman ("Lassie." "Phyllis," "The Ellen Show"), Diahann Carroll ("Julia"), Marjorie Lord ("The Danny Thomas Show"), Marion Ross ("Happy Days"), Holland Taylor ("Two and a Half Men"), Tichina Arnold ("Everybody Hates Chris"), Bonnie Franklin ("One Day at a Time"), Catherine Hicks ("7th Heaven") and Meredith Baxter. Barbara Billingsley, age 93, ("Leave it to Beaver") was hospitalized and unable to attend, but was honored in absentia.
We guess in this case for Billingsley it was "Make it or Leave it."
