She began her career in television working with comedian Ernie Kovacs. They married on September 12, 1954 and remained together until his death on January 13, 1962. Kovacs was a noted cigar smoker, and Edie did TV commercials for Muriel Cigars, with the somewhat racy line at the time Why don't you pick me up and smoke me some time?
Edie was married to Marty Mills from 1964 until their divorce. He was the father of her son, Josh Mills, her only living child. Her most recent marriage was to Italian-American Pete Candoli, from 1972 until their divorce in 1989.
She starred on Broadway in Wonderful Town (1953) and Li'l Abner (1956). She played Miss Olsen in the 1960 film comedy The Apartment and was one of the headliners in the hilarious all-star movie It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World in (1963).
