Too bad. She was super attractive when she was on the show. Tough to see someone blow everything using drugs.

Wow, she was pretty hot on that 70s show, and then I saw a pic of her recently and she looked like crap. RIP.

RIP Mark Sutton. Might not be a popular name, but if you remember the James Bond character that parachuted into the 2012 Olympics, that was him.

Died while attempting a stunt in a wingsuit over the Swiss mountains. It is estimated that Sutton hit the ridge of the mountain at 125 mph :shock: and the impact was so hard that his body had to be identified by DNA testing.

RIP David Frost, 74, suspected heart attack on a cruise ship.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-23920336

Veteran broadcaster Sir David Frost has died at the age of 74 after a suspected heart attack while on board a cruise ship.

A family statement said he had been giving a speech aboard the Queen Elizabeth on Saturday night.

Sir David's career spanned journalism, comedy writing and daytime television presenting, including The Frost Report.

Internationally, he will be remembered for his revealing interviews with former US President Richard Nixon.

RIP Sir David Frost.From before and beyond- beatles to richard nixon.
Hello, good evening, and welcome.
The BBC's Barney Jones, who edited his Breakfast with Frost programme on the BBC for more than 10 years, said: "David loved broadcasting, did it brilliantly for more than 50 years and was eagerly looking forward to a host of projects - including interviewing the prime minister next week - before his sudden and tragic death. We will all miss him enormously."

I was surprised to read David Frost was only 74. I thought he was much older. R.I.P.

I've always thought Frost was engaging. The British manner and all of that was certainly endearing in those days. But I've always felt he was more than just a bit the receipent of good fortune with respect to the Nixon interviews. He was in the right place at the right time. Nixon was vulnerable, seeking the forgiveness of the public and unprepared for Frosts questions.

Either way, I enjoyed watching him and was fortunate enough to have come of age during Frosts prime.

R.i.P.

RIP Tommy "The Duke" Morrison, who also starred in Rocky V as Tommy Gunn. ESPN has also reported that he has been bedridden for almost a year.

I didn't even recognize Morrison in this article.

RIP Cal Worthington. 92 years young.

Car salesman that had one of the greatest jingles in his TV commercials: "Go see Cal, go see Cal, go see Cal." As an ongoing theme, he appeared in the commercials with his dog "Spot", although "Spot" was not a dog.

RIP Terrie Hall, aka Smoker Terrie from the anti-smoking ads from last year's playoffs.

I'll spoiler that pic if you're still not sure who she is.

I feel bad that she died don't get me wrong. I just didn't care to see that disturbing add every 2 minutes during a hockey game. If people are going to smoke they are going to smoke. Playing the add every 2 minutes isn't going to stop them.

Or worse -
Hall was filmed this past weekend in the hospital, during her final days. CDC officials said they have not decided whether the most recent footage would be used in future spots.
