LOS ANGELES (AP) - Popular psychologist, columnist, and television and film personality Joyce Brothers has died. She was 85.

Longtime publicist Sanford Brokaw says Brothers died Monday in New York City.

She was a pioneer of the television advice show.

Her celebrity took off after she entered a television quiz show called The $64,000 Question. She became the only woman to ever win the show's top prize.
