Sheilah Graham, the legendary Hollywood gossip columnist who with Louella Parsons and Hedda Hopper formed what came to be known as the "Unholy Trio," has died in a hospital here.

Her daughter said she was 84."She's the last of the Big Three," her friend and former editor Mike Kaplan said Friday. "Of the three of them, she was the most tenacious," said Kaplan, who edited her work at the Variety weekly from 1952 to 1955.

A spokesman at E. Earl Smith and Son Funeral Home in nearby Lake Worth said Graham, who lived in Palm Beach, died Thursday at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Palm Beach.

Graham, born in London's East End, lived a life as controversial as the people she wrote about.

Her autobiography, "Beloved Infidel," was later made into a movie.
