Psych’s Timothy Omundson suffered a mild stroke
May 19th, 2017 under Galavant, Psych, Sick Bay, Timothy Omundson. [ Comments: none ]


Timothy Omundson, 47, took to Twitter yesterday to confirm a rumor about his health. He Tweeted, “My Dear tweet-erers, As you may have heard, I have had a wee touch of a stroke. Thanks for all the ♥️ and well wishes.”

On May 7th, a Facebook fan page broke the news that he suffered a stroke late last month at the Tampa Airport. He was in Florida at the time promoting his movie Carter & June.

Then a day after that post, USA Network announced that they would begin filming the Psych holiday special on May 24th. A source close to the telemovie says that he will still be part of it and the script is being reworked for his recovery.

But then I have to wonder if his health could be the real reason why ABC didn’t pick up his sitcom, Household Name, with Carol Burnett this week. I must add this is pure speculation on my part. When asked why it wasn’t, all the President of Entertainment, ABC, Channing Dungey, said on a conference call is, “Household Name is a project that is still very near and dear to our hearts. I think it is something that we would love to continue developing with. We have had some preliminary conversations with Universal and with the producers, and we will see how that develops.” Hopefully, when he is recovered, ABC will reconsider picking up this show for midseason. Between him and the comedic legend, how could they not have a hit on their hands?

Omundson is an incredible actor with so much natural talent. Besides playing Lassie on Psych, he sang and danced his way into our as the King on Galavant, also he guest starring as Cain, the original murder, on Supernatural, a Donald Trump Jr type on Angie Tribeca’s season premiere and just this week he was seen as Gd on Lucifer.

Hopefully, he will be all better soon because we need more people in Hollywood that can work their magic on the screen like he does.

Freddy Krueger might be invincible, but Robert Englund is not
May 18th, 2017 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]


You know how they tell actors to break a leg? Well Robert Englund accidentally took them literally because somehow he broke his foot. He didn’t say how he did it, so we are left to assume how. I will say he did it by tripping over all the bodies of the teenagers he killed because Freddy Krueger and him are the same person. Right?

I know his pain. Back when I was 20, I broke my foot in a car accident. Like him, I had an open cast. Unlike him I had kitten in heat with long claws showing by broken wing some love instead of dog kissing the booboo trying to make it feel better. His is cute and mine left me crying in pain.

Back to the dog licking his foot, how cute is to see one of the cinema’s scariest actors get some arforable care? It doesn’t make him seem so terrifying.

Here’s little tip to him, he will need those metal claws to get to those inevitable itches you can’t scratch. I wish I had them, instead I used one the sticks from those huge lollipops because those plastic knives on the A Nightmare on Elm Street glove do not do it. I tried it.

May 6th, 2017 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]


Loretta Lynn might be 85 years old, but that hasn’t stopped her from touring. Yesterday, she was forced to postpone her show and her people explained why on her site.

American country music legend Loretta Lynn was admitted into a hospital in Nashville Thursday night after she suffered a stroke at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

She is currently under medical care and is responsive and expected to make a full recovery.

Loretta, who just celebrated her 85th birthday, has been advised by her doctors to stay off the road while she is recuperating. Regrettably, upcoming scheduled shows will be postponed.

Her people are expecting her to be back on the road because they told her fans, who had tickets to the postponed shows, to check her site for the new dates. Here’s to hoping she is back doing what she loves in no time.

Charlotte Rae has bone cancer
April 27th, 2017 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]


Five days ago Charlotte Rae turned 91 years young, but last Monday her doctors gave her some bad news. The beloved actress told People that they told her she was diagnosed with bone cancer.

She also told them that about 7 years ago, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The Facts of Life star opted to through six months of chemo and was cancer free after the treatment. That was then, she says, “So now, at the age of 91, I have to make up my mind. I’m not in any pain right now. I’m feeling so terrific and so glad to be above ground.” She continued her thought, “Now I have to figure out whether I want to go have treatment again to opt for life. I love life. I’ve had a wonderful one already. I have this decision to make.”

Even though she is a nonagenarian, she is still as feisty as ever. I hope she decides to fight it, but the decision is up to her. Whatever she decides, we will be there for her when she needs it.

Tim Daly broke both of his legs skiing
January 24th, 2017 under CBS, Sick Bay, Tim Daly. [ Comments: none ]


Tim Daly broke both of his legs while skiing in Sundance and will undergo surgery tomorrow. According to Variety, he will need 6-8 weeks to recover and that is causing the writers of his CBS’s show Madam Secretary to figure out how to deal with the situation. Will they work around him? Will they write it in to the show? Whatever they come up with it, they told the trade that he will still be seen in every episode and that few changes will be needed.
Doesn’t he know it is actors who are supposed to break legs and not the other way around? Seriously though, hopefully he will be better soon.

UPDATE: Tim Daly, 60, just Tweeted this update: “HUMANS!!! Broke my right ankle and left knee skiing. Simultaneously! How’s that for talent? I’m all good.” I have three words, “ouch and ouch!”
