Damn. We’ve lost another legend. CBC reports Sue Johanson has passed away at age 93. According to a rep, the groundbreaking Canadian sex educator died yesterday in a long-term care home just north of Toronto. She was surrounded by family (and hopefully a bunch of sex toys). Continue reading
Paris Hilton has the ultimate accessory of a new baby friend she can tote around now, so I’d imagine her menagerie of pets just hasn’t been getting out of
the closet their dog mansion as much as they once had. But, her long-haired chihuahua, Harajuku Bitch, escaped this mortal plane to join Paris’ most famous pup, Tinkerbell, in the big purse in the sky. Harajuku was 23.
Maybe it’s just me, but around the holidays, it feels like there are a few shocking celebrity deaths, and there was one last night. It was announced that Kirstie Alley had died after a short fight with cancer. Kirstie’s children with Parker Stevenson, True Stevenson and Lillie Parker Stevenson, said in a statement that she was only recently diagnosed with colon cancer and was getting treated at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. They were with Kirstie at the time of her death.

What should’ve been the second coming of “the roaring 20s” has instead mostly been “the cacophonous burrito of hesitant coughing and crying 20s” as it seems like life continues to get more complicated and disappointing for many of us, and our best and brightest dropping like flies has been one of the common plights of this era. It’s been tough to keep track of who died when since 2020-2022 has seemed like one long-ass year of grief, but it was only this past August that we lost one of the greats, Olivia Newton-John, who had bravely battled breast cancer for decades. And last night, the American Music Awards took a three-minute break from enthusiastically lapping at Taylor Swift’s b-hole so Pink could sing one of Olivia’s most loved songs, “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” in her honor.
Yesterday, Aaron Carter died WAY too young age of 34, after years of struggling. Aaron was well known for his young pop star career and being the little brother of Nick Carter of Backstreet Boys fame. During those teeny bopper years, his name was all over the teen mags for his relationships with fellow teen idols Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. There was even a SCANDALOUS (not really) love triangle between the three, which cemented Aaron’s place as an early-aughts tween heartthrob. After hearing about his passing, Hilary posted some heartfelt words on social media about her young love.
Open Post: Hosted By The Time Angela Lansbury Rescued Her Daughter From Joining Charles Manson’s Cult
The passing of Dame Angela Lansbury made yesterday a very sad day in the midst of a very sad few years when it comes to the loss of the beloved stars of our most cherished Hollywood-made memories (I was still processing the loss of Betty White). And though I’ll continue to honor Angela by watching Bedknobs and Broomsticks for the 800th time, it’s also comforting to hear a story about her being as impressive in her real life as she was on the stage and screen. A few years ago, Angela recounted the tale of the time she had to step in to save her daughter from her spiral into drugs and rubbing elbows with the maniacal Charles Manson and his murderous cult in the hills of Malibu.
