The Reaper Only Rings Once

Hollywood blue-hairs over the age of 70 should definitely check before opening the door, as the Grim Reaper has paid a visit to yet another icon.

Tom Bosley, better known as Howard Cunningham on the long-running 70's sitcom "Happy Days", has passed away at the age of 83.  I have very fond childhood memories of that show, not to mention his numerous guest appearances on The Love Boat.  Lucky fella.

So this brings the recent death toll to two (Barbara Billingsley/June Cleaver).  These things always happen in three's.  Who's next?

In "Real Housewives" drama, Vicki from the Orange County posse has filed for divorce from her long-suffering, whipped partner Donn.  I guess last year's renewal of the vows in a tropical locale was not what the doctor ordered.  Hmph.

Last night's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" put me to sleep.  The only note-worthy event was Kim's live "performance" of her mega-hit "Tardy for the Party".  The person responsible for attempting to cram her into that little black dress should be shot.  Did you really think those things would stay in?  Seriously, what a laughable scene it was.  It just goes to show that true talent is no longer needed in the entertainment industry.  Any bimbo with a gimmick can stretch 15 minutes of fame into a bona fide profession.  Maybe I should record a song...
