    Bad time to be a celeb I guess, dropping left and right.

    WTF? That's far more random than MJ... considering I think Billy Mays as healthy. And to steal a couple of lines from my father, ''probably snorted too much Oxyclean, or Vince did him in"

    His infomercials will be missed. Seemed like a great guy.

    I don't think he can really be classified a celebrity, but RIP anyhow.

    Also, this is a little messed up. I posted the link on Facebook, and the picture that accompanies it is of Michael Jackson...

    Did the same thing, I felt really bad for him. Lol

    He was a minor celebrity, he did a TON of infomercials, he had lots of brand/character recognition

    more likely he wanted the money... he was a well known name because he was skilled at that job.

    it sounds like his recent surgeries may have led to clot shifting during that plane landing... bet we won't see days and days on that investigation though
