This is a sad, sad story. Pour yourself a cup of Cream of Rice and grab a hankie. 85-year-old Ed McMahon's Beverly Hills home is about to go into foreclosure. Pepaw in distress!
Ed is $644,000 behind on payments on $4.8 million in mortgage loans. A default notice was filed on February 28th reports the Associated Press.
Ed's spokesbitch said he hasn't been able to get work since breaking his neck 18 months ago. He said that they are currently in negotiations with the mortgage company, but it's not clear whether or not Ed and his wifey get to stay in their home.
The home has been on the market for two years at $6.25 million. The 6-bedroom home is located in the gated community of The Summit. This is where Brit Brit's greasy ass lives and Ed's realtor said this has created problems. He said, "When we were trying to sell the house one time, there were about 100 paparazzi there." Tell the Cheeto One to move her ass out of there! Matthew McConaughey lives in a fine trailer park in Malibu. Brit Brit would fit right in there.
Has Ed entered the American Family Publishers sweepstakes? He may have already won $10 million!
Seriously, how can we help Ed? Pepaw Bake-A-Thon? Pepaw sex tape? We must save Ed's house!
Is Mercury in Your Anus or some shit? I'm not into that astrology mess, but you know what I mean! May has not been a good month for our beloved greats.
Kelsey Grammar had a heart attack! Thankfully, he's fine. Star Magazine has confirmed that Kelsey had a minor heart attack on the beach in Kona, Hawaii on Saturday.
No, Camille wasn't riding his pony when it happened. Kelsey was out swimming in the ocean. A source said, "Kelsey's heart stopped for a few seconds, that's for sure." Don't ask me how the source knows this. They probably have bionic hands. He was quickly sent to a local hospital and then airlifted to a hospital in Honolulu. His rep said that he's going home tomorrow.
You know that when Camille got the call, she's like, "Um...I'll be right there. I just have to call the lawyers...I mean...the kids." Sarah Larson needs to take a cold hard stare at Camille Grammar. That could've been her!
What the fuck is with all these deaths lately? Yves Saint Laurent, Harvey Kormon, Pringles can man, Dick Martin, Oscar the dog, Sydney Pollack and now Bo Diddley! This needs to stop.
Bo, one of the fathers of rock 'n' roll, died today at the age of 79. His rep told AP that he passed away from heart failure at his home in Archer, FL. Bo suffered a major heart attack last August and a stroke three months before that.
R.I.P. Bo Diddley
Dr Fredric J. Baur, the inventor of the Pringles can, has passed away at the age of 89. Before his death, Fredric told his family that he wanted to be buried in one his creations. Yeah, he was cremated and part of his remains were put into a Pringles can. The other part of his remains were put in a regular urn. The can and urn were buried in his grave at Arlington Memorial Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio.
His daughter said that he invented other shit like freeze-dried ice cream, but the Pringles can was his proudest accomplishment.
Don't judge! I wanted to be cremated and buried in one of Shauna Sand's exquisite lucite heels.
Seriously, the Pringles can always messes with my emotions. That shit should open from both sides! You can never grab the last chips and if you tip it over to pour them out, all the crumbs fall out.
R.I.P. Pringles can inventor man!
Bonus! Here's a Pringles commercial starring Brad Pitt!
Yves Saint Laurent died today in Paris at the age of 71. His close friend, Pierre Berge, confirmed his passing and would only say he died this evening after a long illness. He did not give any other details.
Yves retired from haute couture in 2002.
Universal Studios is currently on fire and LAist reports that the King Kong ride has been destroyed. NOOOO!!! I lost my virginity on that ride. Not really, but it would have been really sad if I did. The fire also completely murdered the New York Street, Courthouse Square and Hill Valley. The video vault is on fire and the plastic from the video archives containers is what's causing that nasty ass black smoke.
The fire started sometime between 4:30-4:45 this morning. TMZ reports that there's no reports of boo boos and fire hos are currently trying to figure out how this shit started.
The MTV Movie Awards is set to take place at Universal today. The fire has not affected that shit and Marc Malkin reports that the awards show will go on as planned.
I was busy getting drunk in a bar when I read that Harvey Korman died. At first, I thought it was Harvey Keitel and I wanted to slap a bitch for no reason. Actually, that's a good idea. Tomorrow, I'm just going to walk up to some stranger, slap them and say, "This is for Harvey Korman!"
Anyway, Harvey died today at the age of 81. Harv passed away at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago.
One of his daughters told CNN, "It was a miracle in itself that he survived the incident at all. Everyone in the hospital referred to him as 'miracle man' because of his strong will and ability to bounce right back after several major operations. Tragically, after such a hard-fought battle, he passed away."
In case you don't know, Harv is best known for "The Carol Burnett Show, " " and "Blazing Saddles"The Flinstones in Viva Rock Vegas." Ok, he's not best known for the last one, but I love that piece of trash movie.
Seriously, all the good have been going lately! If Charlotte Rae is next, I swear I'll jump out the window.
Harvey Korman forever! May he rest in peace.
There's too many awesome Korman clips to post, but here's one of him with Tim Conway:
Hannelore Jacob, the youngest member of the famed Die Jacob Sisters passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 64. She died of heart failure in her sister's arms! Johanna, her sister, woke up in the middle of the night after she heard their cat screaming. Johanna found Hannelore lying in the living room. Johanna carried her sister out onto the terrace, but it was too late.
Hannelore's funeral has been scheduled for tomorrow.
Die Jacobs Sisters are a famed pop group from Germany. The group was made up of 4 sisters and their illustrious career spans 50 years. Hopefully, the three remaining sisters will pick up the pieces and continue their legacy.
Below is their version of Blowin' in the Wind:
Rest in peace Hannelore!
One of the most famous dogs in London, Oscar the German Shepherd, passed away after a three-year battle with cancer. Oscar was dubbed the "Met Bar" dog, because he used to hang around exclusive celebrity joints. Oscar and his owner, Dennis Gill, sold "Big Issue," a magazine sold by homeless vendors, outside bars and restaurants in London. Celebrities would buy the magazine and then pose for a picture with Oscar.
He posed with every from Dustin Hoffman to George Clooney to Carmen Electra. I think he even had an affair with Carmen. He broke her heart.
It comes in threes. Dick Martin, Sydney Pollack and now Oscar. Sadness.
Director, producer and actor, Sydney Pollack, died Monday of cancer at his home in California. He was diagnosed with cancer 9 months ago. He was 73.
Sydney won an Oscar for Best Director for "Out of Africa." He also directed "Tootsie," "Sabrina," "The Firm" and "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?"
As an actor, Sydney starred in such films as, "Eyes Wide Shut," "Michael Clayton," and "Random Hearts."
He died only hours after the HBO premiere of "Recount" which he executive produced.
R.I.P. Sydney Pollack
