Jimmy Kimmel said tonight about Rice’s death:

“Yesterday we lost a co worker and a very friend. I don’t want to get too choked up. Our personal was not a sentimental person but … we thought it would be best to share her best moments.”

Rice’s bio on ABC reads as follows:

“Stationed in front of the musical guest dressing room, Veatrice (aka “Miss V”) exudes the cool calm of indifferent disgust that comes with three years on a low-paying security job. A native of Bowling Green, KY (“That’s where they make Corvettes,” she notes), Veatrice enjoys reading and drinking. Her favorite book is Robinson Crusoe and her favorite non-alcoholic beer is O’Douls. Veatrice has been married for 6 years to her husband John. She has no heroes. Despite her quiet nature, Veatrice has emerged as one of JKL’s top security guards and on-air personalities. Her fans around the world agree that “Miss V” is here to stay!”

Veatrice Rice will be missed. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

    I loved Veatrice! She always got to say exactly what I was thinking! I felt bad for Jimmy when his voice broke when telling the news of her passing… She’ll be missed; but the show went on, and i think that was the right thing to do. I’m sure Veatrice would have thought so too.
    Rest in Peace, Miz V!

    I always thought of the 3 Stooges (Uncle Frank, Guillermo & Veatrice) that she had the best comic timing & delivery. I bet she never imagined when she took that security job at the El Capitan Theatre that she’d become a TV star! Yes, she really was a security guard & helped usher in the audience each night!

    I loved seeing Veatrice on the show. She had a great no- nonsense style of humor. She will be missed by all of the fans of the show.

    Ahh…was so sad to hear about this, last night. She was such a funny lady (whether she was really “trying” to be, or not…). Loved her sense of humor and timing, as stated above.

    JKL just won’t be the same…

    Where have I been? For over a year I’ve wondered what happen to Veatrice. So tonight I google her name and get the sad news. It never occurred to me that she may have died. I am stunned at this late news, however, the show goes on. The network is allowing Guillermo a chance to exercise his wits and Uncle Frank has returned in a less active role. Jimmy, thanks for keeping it real…real, real people. Veatrice, darling we loved your no nonsense and foul mouth approach to the comedy routines…rest in peace.
