Dick Van Dyke is not dead and giving $59 million to Donald Trump
October 11th, 2018 under Dick Van Dyke, Not Dead. [ Comments: 6 ]

There is a vital rumor that Dick Van Dyke passed away and his donating $59 million to Donald Trump. When the beloved actor heard about that, he took to social media to declare he is still alive.

The 92-year-old wrote, “I may be circling the drain, but I ain’t dead yet!” Then he added, “As for the 59 million dollars?!? If I had it, I would give it to anyone who could do something about the non-existence of affordable housing. So many at the end of their rope. I live in a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath house and wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

And that is why we still love him after all of these decades. Well that and all of the memorable roles he has had in his wonderful career in shows like The Dick Van Dyke Show and Diagnosis Murder and movies like Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.


Gordon Lightfoot wants you to know he is not dead!
April 30th, 2018 under Not Dead. [ Comments: none ]

Gordon Lightfoot played Stagecoach this weekend and he wanted to let the audience know something. That thing is, “the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

The If You Could Read Mind singer might be 79, but he is still alive and playing. At least I think that is him and not a hologram.

Anyways, I hate to say this, and it defeats this post, but until Yahoo posted this video, I could have sworn he was dead. I know there were rumors that he died in 2010, but I thought it was more recently than that. Well, I guess now we can put that misconception of his death to rest. Not rest in peace, but, well I don’t know!

Now that you know Gordon Lightfoot is alive, you can see him alive and in person. He has several dates coming up for the rest of the year throughout the US and Canada. He is not letting those rumors of his demise stop him from touring. That and being 6 months away from his 80th.

Way to go. I guess you can say he is no light foot. Oh wait, you have to! You get where I was going with the bad joke! Right?


Jeff Goldblum’s mom believed his death hoax
March 27th, 2018 under Andy Cohen, Jeff Goldblum, Not Dead. [ Comments: none ]

Back in 2009, there was a horrible hoax that Jeff Goldblum had died falling off of a cliff in New Zealand. The hoax was so real that the television news in Australia reported on it. He then went on The Colbert Report to confirm that he was still alive.

Between the time that (the actual) fake news came out and he went on Colbert, a Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen viewer wanted to know if anyone believed that he was no longer with us. The actor told us that his own mom called him to see if he was OK. His poor mom was so nervous that her son was dead and that is so messed up. Not only her, but his friend left a message while crying to find out if it was true.

Thus, the next time someone wants to send out one of the fake death reports, think of the celebrity’s family and friends. And depending on the celebrity, think of everyone for a second who will get some joy out of it and that crushing moment when they find out that person is still alive. That is the worst.


Shelley Morrison wants you to know she is still alive!
November 4th, 2017 under Not Dead. [ Comments: none ]

On this past week’s episode of Will & Grace, the revival killed off a fan favorite. Some people thought that Shelley Morrison like her character Rosario had also passed away, but she is very much alive. In fact, she Tweeted, “Love my W&G family & miss them. I’m alive & well & enjoying my family & my dear husband & the time we have together. I am a lucky lady!”

Over the Summer, they revealed she would not be part of Will & Grace’s second coming because she had retired from acting. Although, it would have been nice to have seen her on the sitcom one more time, they gave her a beautiful heartfelt send off!


Mark McGrath unknowingly involved in the worst PR campaign ever
February 26th, 2015 under Adult Swim, Not Dead. [ Comments: none ]

The world was rocked this morning when an emailed press release went out saying that Mark McGrath was shot and killed.
The press release read:

Musician Mark McGrath has died at the age of 46. McGrath was on set filming the second season of entertainment show Hot Package, when he was confronted by a masked gunman and shot several times. The former Sugar Ray frontman died in the arms of his co-host Derrick Beckles on the Hollywood set of the show.
In honor of Mr. McGrath’s legacy, his team is asking in liu of flowers, fans post a Sugar Ray Selfie, holding a packet of sugar over their heart. #RIPMARKMCGRATH

Then a few hours later, after his people confirmed he was alive, the PR company said he alive.
The release said:

Please be advised that Mark McGrath and his team have had no involvement in or knowledge of the media alerts sent earlier this morning.
Mr. McGrath is a guest on the show, and his death is merely a plot line in the premiere episode. PRISMATICS take full responsibility for any confusion.

In honor of their stupid campaign, I say let’s boycott the show. I feel for the people who work on the show, but how can anyone think that was even remotely funny?
So how did Mark McGrath feel about it? Here’s what he Tweeted, “To be clear, I’m only apologizing to anyone affected by this death hoax, as I am in no way involved with this really lame press release. I can only hope the people responsible will clear my name, but I won’t hold my breath…what was a fun cameo on a show, has become a bummer.”
