    Ahh poor Flo. lol

    There was a mini-death hoax of Steve Martin today on my friend's FB. She posted RIP Steve Martin you were a great guy! And someone replied, it's a hoax! He's alive. Then my friend replies "I'm talking about my friend, you clown, why would I give a shit about some guy I never met". I was loling.

    RIP young lady...You will always be young in my mind
    To my Father. Even though you have crossed the plane, you will always be with me.
    You were not just my Father, but my hero. My life has been a poor attempt to be like you
    You taught me music, vocals, and how to fight. I can only hope I am half the man you are
    When I close my eyes I can see you. And finally, Thank you Dad. for everything.

    I went over to Judy's Wikipedia page and found this gem: "Her most popular routine ended with her saying "Sock it to me!", at which point she was doused with water or ASSAULTED IN SOME OTHER WAY." (emphasis mine)

    Don't feel bad VCNJ, I've done it, heck, even Scott got fooled by this one and posted it on FB (I just saw his apology and explanation it was a hoax) so you're in the club with the best of us.

    Upset, don't know if that was supposed to make me laugh but it did. I haven't seen much Laugh In so I have to wonder exactly how they assaulted her.

    eta: Now I am reading the hoax was a hoax, that she really is dead? I'm confused. lol. Who hoaxes a death hoax? I'll wait a little bit and see. Variety has a post from an hour ago from this edit (3:24pm Central) that she died, as does a newspaper site. However, they say she died on the 3rd of Sept. So is she dead or not?

    Variety says she actually she did indeed die. (See her thread.)

    This same thing happened about a year ago. As far as I can tell- she's still alive.
    Performing my signature monkey hump move since 10/16/2007...

    Nope, a rumor from a satire piece which stated that Betty White "dyes peacefully at her Los Angeles home". Note spelling of "dyes". The original story is about Betty likes to relax by washing and dying her hair at home.

    May she rinse in peace.

    Betty White is the latest. An Empire News story that Betty is not a natural blonde and "dyes peacefully in her Los Angeles home".

    Rule of thumb: if you can't find a death (no pun intended) on a reliable site or print news item, then do not create a thread here. Betty White, and most big name live celebrities, have profiles on the Entertainment section. If you run across something that does not appear on TMZ or a known news site, then bring it to their live profile and we'll find out. I looked up Betty's just now and it didn't take a minute to discover it was a hoax.

    I know people make mistakes, including me, so I'm just saying what everyone should already know.

    I apologize cindyt - it took me by such surprise - about 3 minutes after I posted I realized I'd walked right into and tried to go back and delete, but wasn't successful. I should have known better on all counts, mea culpa.

    Cash, a renowned death hag should know the forum rules, particularly Rule 4, the part which forbids criticizing other members, which you have been warned about in the past, and Rule 6, disrupting the forum of which you have already received a yellow card.

    Upset, a renowned death hag should know the forum rules, particularly Rule 4, the part which forbids quoting posts that break the rules, and Rule 6, disrupting the forum, of which you have already received three red cards.

    If the prince is indeed dead I'll move this post back to the dead section, but right now I'm calling it a hoax. Because. Buckingham Palace says he is alive as of today. Nothing about his death on the BBC or People.

    Don't jump at a headline on an obscure website. Research the big boys.

    I got fooled by that one too. I didn't post anything, but I texted my ex-wife and my best friend with a "who died?"message. We like to play a game and try to be the first to report a death. Damn French media!

    According to Wiki and IMDb he is still alive. You're right, NE is the only site with his death headline. I'm calling hoax. It anyone can come up with a major news story I'll move it back.

    Folks, don't just grab an item off of a tabloid site. Check the mainstream too.

    Still nothing other then the NE reporting it. If you type in his name nothing that would suggest that he has passed comes up, add dead to it and up pops the NE story ! I say it's a hoax.

    I just came here to see what was being said having read about her (premature) death and subsequent resurrection. You are 100% correct. A site like that ought to get the facts correct before reporting the death of someone, famous or not.
    There's something happening here, what is is ain't exactly clear.

    Likely, they had confidence in their source and didn't check on it. That's no excuse. We trust you guys here, but when a death profile pops up, we obviously check it out.

    Well on the one hand, congrats to Julie on her astounding recovery - I wish her many more happy years.
    On the other hand; that sort of news will seriously derail a good necro fantasy.
    I mean, if you are susceptible to that sort of thing.
    Obviously.
