Betsy von Furstenberg, R. I. P. Betsy von Furstenberg, a glamorous German-born baroness who made her debut in the movies and on the Broadway stage in the early 1950s as a teenager and later reinvented herself as a television actress, writer and philanthropist, died on April 21 at her home in Manhattan. She was 83.

Obit didn't mention it, but I wonder if she's related to Diane Von Furstenburg.

Diane married into a Von Furstenburg family, but I don't know if it's the same one.
