What's the truth about Gladys Hardy?

A friend of mine sent me this clip of the Ellen DeGeneres show, where she phones an 88 year old in Austin, Texas, who gets Ellen laughing fit to bust with her homespun folksy idioms.



Then a local paper said there was no Gladys Hardy in the area, and that it was actually a male comedian. Further investigation on the ever-reliable web gives evidence both ways, but I can't find any postings on the subject more recent than late May. I do have to say this radio ad sounds just a little more like a man imitating a woman...



In fact, it sounds so much like Maude Frickert it's uncanny. Seriously, though - anyone out there know the whole truth & nothing but?
