For the sake of the urgent care workers in heaven, I hope Peter Fonda isn’t wearing those leather pants when he rides on through the gates, or else the angels are going to swoon themselves raw and need immediate medical attention. Peter Fonda is riding to the other side after he died this morning at his home in Los Angeles. He was 79.
Literary icon and American legend Toni Morrison died last night. Toni’s publisher Knopf said that after a short illness, Toni died peacefully while surrounded by her loved ones. She was 88.
Break every single light bulb on Broadway, because dimming the lights isn’t enough to honor Harold Prince, who I’m pretty sure provided the sperm sample that was used to birth the 20th century Broadway musical. Harold Prince died today. He was 91.
The afterworld was already a much, much better place than this world, because they’ve got no Trump, Jell-O 1-2-3 is still for sale there, and you don’t wake up 10 minutes before your alarm goes off with a bladder full of piss that desperately wants out of your body (that only happens in HELL). But the afterworld became an even better place, because 4 out of the 5 regular Golden Girls cast members are there.
Charles Levin, who played Coco the gay cook on the first episode of The Golden Girls, is believed to be dead at 70 years old. Living in a world without Coco from The Golden Girls is sad enough, but the details surrounding Charles’ death makes it even sadder.
When there was talk that a reboot of 1980s anti-pussy, pro-extraterrestrial propaganda series ALF was in the works, I was both HUH-ing in the brains over Hollywood bringing back ALF (I mean, if you’re going to bring back ALF, bring him back in an episode of Stranger Things, duh), and happy, because it meant the cast, including Max Wright, would make a triumphant return to our screens. But then we learned the ALF reboot isn’t a go, and even if it was, Max Wright would not be in it (so really what’s the point of bringing it back now?). Max Wright died yesterday at his home in Hermosa Beach, CA. He was 75.
As expected, the sad news about Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman just got sadder. Beth has died at the age of 51 after being placed in a medically-induced coma earlier this week.
