"I was supposed to do just five episodes of 'One Life to Live,'" she told The Associated Press in 1988. "I played Renee Devine, an ex-madame from Las Vegas who dressed to kill. The character just took off."

Her television credits include starring opposite Alan Arkin in "100 Centre Street," ''Oz," "''Coming of Age," ''Murder, She Wrote," ''thirtysomething" and "The Jury." She was the first woman to be a guest host for Johnny Carson on "The Tonight Show."

Her films include "The Human Stain," ''It Had To Be You," ''For the Time Being, "A Price Above Rubies," ''The Beautician and the Beast," ''Mannequin," ''To Find a Man" and "Bye Bye Braverman."

In later years she focused on fundraising and founded the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative of the Actor's Fund in 1996.

She started writing her autobiography, "Just in Time: Notes From My Life" after being diagnosed with breast cancer. "I started writing it because I didn't want to talk about it. Not that it was a secret. After I had 50 pages down, Simon & Schuster bought it," she said in 1988.

"Betty Ford was an example for me in talking about my illness. I'm getting some very terrific letters from women about it."

Newman underwent one mastectomy and then had to have her second breast removed. She described it as "no way to treat a lady."

Soon after her recovery she went back to work, first in a one-woman show, "The Madwoman of Central Park West" — which she co-authored with Arthur Laurents — then in "Broadway Bound."

In addition to her journalist son, Newman is survived by her daughter Amanda, a Tony-nominated songwriter.
