TAMPA, Fla. – Billy Mays, the burly, bearded television pitchman whose boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean made him a pop-culture icon, has died. He was 50.
Tampa police said Mays’ wife found him unresponsive Sunday morning. A fire rescue crew pronounced him dead at 7:45 a.m. It was not immediately clear how he died. He said he was hit on the head when an airplane he was on made a rough landing Saturday, and his wife, Deborah Mays, told investigators he didn’t feel well before he went to bed about 10 p.m. that night.
To read more, go here. What’s up with Michael Jackson and Billy Mays both tragically dying at 50 this week. So sad. My favorite Billy May’s product pitch was when he pitched Shakespeare with Jay Leno. See that clip here.
Our thoughts go to Billy Mays’ family in their unexpected loss. May he RIP.
This vintage pic of TV and Media personality, Ryan Seacrest, doesn’t necessarily make Ryan stand out from the pack at first glance, when Seacrest was once a college freshman.
However, although Seacrest is still snubbed by the #1 celebrity at the top of the class, Ms. Angelina Jolie. Angie has walked past Seacrest on the red carpet at the Oscars for two years running now; the world’s most famous humanitarian actress can perhaps be forgiven for not knowing who he actually is! With six children, and being a working mom, Angelina doesn’t watch TV much.
This one entertainment fact, still does not detract from Seacrest’s rising star power this year.
He’s on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien tonight, and he’s well worthy of his media platform. It should be a great interview, make sure you watch it. Here’s Ryan’s tweet while waiting for the show’s taping: “in dressing room at conan show. the toilet water is blue.” Riveting stuff Ryan! Anyway,
17 years ago at the first ever taping of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno as host, comedian Billy Crystal performed on Jay’s show.
Now after, 3,3750 epidsodes and 17 years later, Jay Leno’s friend, Billy Crystal was back for Jay’s final show, to do exactly the SAME musical number.
How cool are these guys. That’s awesome staying power in show biz and a great friendship! Nice one Billy!
“A lot has changed since when I started the Tonight Show I had black hair and we had a white president. Now we have a black president and I have white hair.”
Nice, Jay Leno’s last show taping for the Tonight Show after 17 years was today, here in LA. Congrats Jay Leno! [source]
“Just call me Octo-Mel” joked the actor/ producer with Jay Leno.
Mel also said that his wife Robin and him remain good friends, and that Robin is an admirable woman and it was he that ruined their marriage. Nice to see a man admit to his mistakes.
Congrats Mel on finding new love and being a dad for the 8th time! [source]
Jamie Foxx appeared on Jay Leno’s show to get himself out of the dog box, for his outlandish comments he said about Miley Cyrus. I’m sure super band Radio Head approved of Foxx’s daddy paddling of the young Cyrus superstar, but the way in which it was done was henous!
Realizing this, Foxx on Jaye Leno’s tonight show said this last night: “I so apologise to her, and I’m sincere. You guys know that I’m a comedian… And whatever I say, you know I don’t mean any of it. I have a radio show on Sirius, and I’m really the black Howard Stern and go at everybody. I apologise to Miley Cyrus. I’ve got a daughter too, but I’m a comedian and I apologize.
Too funny! Billy Mays, the informercial guy shouts it out for Billy Shakespeare on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. But does he really?!!! Gotta love that oxy clean man’s humor!
