BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Former “Let’s Make a Deal” host Monty Hall has died. He was 96.

Sharon Hall says her father died Saturday morning of heart failure at his home in Beverly Hills, California.

Hall co-created “Let’s Make a Deal,” which debuted on NBC in 1963 and became a TV staple for decades.

Contestants chosen from the studio audience wore outlandish costumes to attract Hall’s attention. The game involved swapping prize items for others hidden behind doors, curtains or in boxes, leading to the famous question: Do you want Door No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3?”

His daughter says Hall, who was born in Canada, enjoyed his fame and never turned down an autograph or a chance to use his name to help others.

She estimates he raised nearly $1 billion for charity over his lifetime.

Sad news for actress and comedian Roseanne Barr. The 62-year-old revealed during an interview with the ‘Daily Beast’ that she has macular degeneration and glaucoma and is losing her sight.

According to the Daily Beast, doctors have not given Barr a timeline on when she will lose her vision, but she said, it is ‘closing in now.’

Barr said during the interview she smokes pot for the pain caused by her condition because it helps with the pressure in her eyes.

She told the Daily Beast, “It’s something weird. But there are other weird things.
