Cullen married Ann Macomber, a former dancer and model, in 1955, who sometimes worked as a model on his “The Price is Right” show and made frequent appearances with him on the show “Tattletales.” The Cullens lived in a beautiful apartment overlooking central park for 23 years, before moving to Southern California in the late 1970s. They had an impressive collection of mid-century furniture by Dunbar that will hit the auction block on September 27th at Abell Auction Co. Come preview the Cullen collection this Wednesday, September 26th in Los Angeles between 9 am and 4 pm. Stay tuned for details about Abell’s upcoming quarterly and luxury auctions, which will also feature pieces from the Cullen estate.
