Whatever happened to Leeza Gibbons? I used to enjoy her talk show and I watched her on Dancing with the Stars.

Gibbons, 51, left her job with TV’s Extra in 2003 to start Leeza’s Place, a foundation to honor her mother, Gloria Jean Gibbons, who was battling Alzheimer’s disease and died in 2008 at age 72. Gibbons, who was a caregiver for her mother, created the foundation to offer resources and help counsel individuals diagnosed with memory-loss disorders and their families. In addition, she currently hosts and produces Hollywood Confidential, a nationally syndicated radio show, and promotes her mineral-based makeup system, Sheer Cover.
