Martin Short's Wife Nancy Dolman Dies

The wife of actor and comedian Martin Short has died. Nancy Dolman passed away at the couple's Pacific Palisades home over the weekend.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a medical emergency at the home at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Radar Online first reported. On Monday, Short's manager confirmed her death.

No cause of death was given, but E! reports that the 58-year-old Dolman had been battled cancer since 2007. It's not clear though if that was what killed her.

Dolman also did some acting in the 1980s -- her most prominent role was on several episodes of the sitcom "Soap."

Dolman and Short met in 1972, and were married for 30 years -- a rarity in Hollywood. They have three adult children.
