Charles Manson Dead at 83

Swastika-headed Charles Manson, the cult leader who infamously orchestrated the deaths of 8-month pregnant Sharon Tate and others, has died.

In January, sources say Manson had been taken from prison to a hospital because he was seriously ill. Not just in the head this time. A California Department of Corrections of Rehabilitation spokesman said at the time they couldn’t divulge any information for “safety and security reasons.”

In mid-November, Manson was taken to a Bakersfield hospital where sources said “it’s just a matter of time.” And they were right.

The California Department of Corrections released a statement reading, “Inmate Charles Manson, 83, died of natural causes at 8:13 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at a Kern County hospital.”

Manson died of natural causes which just shows how wacky the universe is.

Manson and his creepy murder-family killed Sharon Tate and six others over two nights in LA in August 1969. Tate was the wife of Roman Polanski who would later have his own trouble with the law (he raped a kid and fled the country).

Since being convicted, Manson, 82, had spent the past 45 years in prison. He’d been denied parole 12 times. His next chance for parole would have been in 2027 when he was 92.

Hugh Hefner, 91, Died

Hugh Hefner, 91, founder of the iconic Playboy magazine and brand, died at his home Wednesday surrounded by loved ones. Hopefully he died like how he lived, with a raging erection surrounded by nude centerfolds.

Hefner not only founded Playboy in 1953, but soon put the Playboy Mansion on the map with his legendary parties. It’s been said that you haven’t partied until you contracted an STD in the grotto at the Mansion. Actually, people don’t say that. I just made that up. Anyway, those parties ended a few years ago after he sold the mansion last August.

Hefner is survived by four children and his 31-year-old Playboy model wife, Crystal Hefner. God bless this man for giving children everywhere a glimpse of tits at the grocery store.

Walking Dead Stuntman John Bernecker Killed in Stunt Gone Wrong

Sad news from the set of AMC’s hit drama The Walking Dead as a stuntman tragically died filming a sequence for the upcoming eight season of the zombie thriller. John Bernecker was attempting a fall from a 22 foot high balcony and missed the safety cushion. Witness Matthew Goodman, an assistant director, said that Bernecker tried to grab hold of the balcony, realizing he was going to miss the cushion before he fell.

Austin Amelio, who plays Dwight, said that Bernecker was nervous about the jump and had never done a fall from that height before. Both the coroner and sheriff ruled the death accidental and have closed their investigations.

According to Deadline, OSHA and SAG-AFTRA have opened an investigation into how and why the stunt went wrong. OSHA, or The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is a government agency in the Labor Department that ensures employers provide a safe workplace for employees, while SAG-AFTRA is the labor union that represents almost all screen, radio and voice over actors.

Bernecker was declared dead at 6:30 PM Wednesday at the Atlanta Medical Center. He was 33 years old. Production on season eight of The Walking Dead has temporarily shut down in the wake of the accident, believed to be the first fatal accident related to a stunt in nearly two decades.

QUIZ: How Long Would YOU Survive Game Of Thrones?

With so many Game Of Thrones characters suffering brutal deaths, it's hard to imagine any of them will survive the dangers of Westeros!

Between the dragons, the White Walkers, and plenty of (literal) backstabbing, the HBO fantasy series has never been more perilous.

Some characters are better suited for survival than others -- whether they manage to stay alive with power, manipulation, seduction, or just hiding out until everything is over.

Nelsan Ellis of ‘True Blood’ Dead at 39

Aw, shit, hookah. Nelsan Ellis, who played Lafayette Reynolds on HBO’s True Blood and most recently played Shinwell Johnson in a lead role on Elementary, died after complications from heart failure at the age of 39. There’s no news on what lead to the heart failure.

A statement released by HBO read, “We were extremely saddened to hear of the passing of Nelsan Ellis. Nelsan was a long-time member of the HBO family whose groundbreaking portrayal of Lafayette will be remembered fondly within the overall legacy of True Blood. Nelsan will be dearly missed by his fans and all of us at HBO.”

His True Blood co-stars are heartbroken to say the least.

It’s safe to say fans will always remember the flair Neslan brought to True Blood.

‘Road Rules’ Star Danny Dias May Have Killed Himself

Former reality TV star Danny Dias – he was on Road Rules in 2004 – was found dead in his apartment in Brooklyn on Monday. Well, that’s according to one account. Another said he was found unresponsive in the same place on Saturday. Either way, he was discovered bereft of life, and it seems like it was a suicide.

Apparently, he had been with some friends on that Saturday. They supposedly took LSD and mushrooms. He then freaked out and raced into his room and his friends left him. They said they tried to contact him the next day and then investigated on Monday.

Now here’s the thing – he was allegedly tripping and ran into his room on Saturday… and no one checked on him until Monday? I feel for those rescue workers who broke into his place – if he’d been dead since Saturday… chances are good that he smelled, um… rank. Then again, I’m sure that this is nothing new for those workers.

Does it suck that a 30-ish guy (even his age isn’t certain… media had it at either 33 or 34) died? Yes. Still, there are plenty of people out there who have died from either suicide or drug overdoses and they don’t even get a blip on TMZ. We’re not talking about a Chris Cornell-level talent here. Dias was good at allowing cameras to be trained on him for 24 hours a day for a while. I don’t even remember the guy… which means reality TV is a lot like junk food. There’s not a whole lot memorable about it.

So… drugs are bad… mkay? Also, “friends” who don’t check on you immediately after a bad trip suck.

Bill Paxton Dead at 61

Suffering from complications during heart surgery, Bill Paxton suffered a fatal stroke and passed away. TMZ reports that the versatile actor died on Saturday.

Paxton acted on a multitude of shows and films including AliensPredator and Terminatoras well as Twister and Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Paxton also starred in one of my favorite thrillers Frailty alongside Matthew McConaughey.

Said Paxton’s family, “Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable.”

And as an apology to Paxton, I’m sorry I kept getting you mixed up with Greg Kinnear. The fact that you are only one of two actors to have been killed onscreen by an Alien, a Predator and a Terminator should have seared into my consciousness.

‘The Brady Bunch’ is Getting Smaller, Florence Henderson Dies at 82

florence-henderson-dwts

Florence Henderson died Thanksgiving night at Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA surrounded by friends and family. She was 82.

Florence was best known for playing the plucky mom, Carol, on the Brady Bunch. Though that show was a complete piece of crap, Henderson always managed to be wonderful and likable while she spat out horrible lines.

Henderson appeared many times on Broadway previous to her TV work and was the first woman to guest host the Tonight Show. All of these accomplishments show her incredible charm, intelligence and talent and all are a thousand times better than the Brady Brunch.

A woman who maintained a thriving career for decades without sacrificing time for her family, Florence Henderson will be missed. Let’s use this as a reason to never show the Brady Bunch again.
