“I tried to look the other way and say, ‘Well, that was just then.’ It just wasn’t something he did very well,” Sally said of Burt, whom she first kissed on camera in the 1977 film Smokey And The Bandit. They were together for four years before breaking up in 1980.
Sally told Andy that she “could go into more detail” about Burt’s underperforming kissing skills. The Real Housewives boss pressed the Oscar winner for more details, asking if Burt’s tongue was the problem. Sally clarified that the tongue “wasn’t fully involved,” although Burt “drooled a lot.”

Sally had a difficult relationship with Burt, which she openly discussed in a March 2022 interview with Variety. “He wasn’t someone I could be with,” said the Mrs. Doubtfire star. “He just wasn’t good for me in any way. And somehow, in his rethinking, he had come up with the idea that I was more important to him than he had thought, but it wasn’t me. He only wanted what he didn’t have. I just didn’t want to deal with it,” she added.

Burt died in September 2018 at the age of 82 after suffering a heart attack in a Florida hospital. At the time, Sally responded to Burt’s death with a brief but powerful statement. “There are times in your life that are so indelible, they never fade. They stay alive, even 40 years later. My years with Burt never get out of my head. He will be in my story and my heart as long as I live. Get some rest, mate,’ Sally said.
