Huh. That’s odd. I think we need to have a telethon, a 5K run or a $1000 a plate dinner for a new “disease” called using too many drugsNatural Causes that is sweeping Hollywood. That’s what the Los Angeles County Coroner is leading us to believe, anyway.
That’s right. Corey Haim seems to have died of Natural Causes, just like Brittany Murphy! I hear/tell that Lindsay Lohan may have a caught this bug, as well.
Let’s hope Linds can at least get her portrayal of pornstar, Linda Lovelace in the can before, well, you know…
Hmmm. I don’t quite understand this, but Corey Haim’s lifelong best friend, Corey Feldman will not be attending Haim’s funeral in Toronto tomorrow. Feldman offered this statement to Access Hollywood:
“In the days following my best friend Corey Haim’s death, I have spent much time with his mother Judy, who has always been like a mother to me. I would love nothing more than to be by her side at Corey’s funeral, however due to their strong religious beliefs, and need for privacy, the family has decided to make Corey’s funeral on Tuesday a small private affair,” Feldman said in a statement to Access Hollywood.
Feldman said he is in the midst of planning a memorial for his late friend.
“Understanding the recent media attention and to be respectful of the family’s wishes I have decided not to attend. Instead I will remain in Los Angeles quietly mourning and planning his memorial. As a sign of respect I am asking the media to honor Corey Haim by making the same choice,” Feldman’s statement continued. “I am working with a few people who were close to Corey to put a memorial together within the next month. At that time, the media will be invited to honor and celebrate the legacy he has left behind, along with friends, fans, and the rest of the Hollywood community.”
The first person most people thought about after hearing about the death of Corey Haim, is his friend and co-star for so many years, Corey Feldman. The were referred to as “The Coreys” throughout their careers.
via Corey Feldman’s Blog:
“I was woken up at 830 AM this morning by my brother and sister knocking on my bedroom door. They informed me about the loss of my brother Corey. My eyes weren’t even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry to Corey, Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful,beautiful,tormented soul, who will always be my brother,family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson on how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a differance [sic]. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art he has left behind will be remembered as the passion of what he truly lived for.

You know, we can all say this is a cautionary tale, but it won’t change anything. Not one thing. The saddest thing about Haim’s death is that no one seems to be surprised that it happened – and occurred the way it did. I’m not being calloused – in fact, it’s the opposite. It’s becoming more clear with each and every Hollywood star’s drug-related death that Hollywood can be hell on earth for so many of its inhabitants. Fame is indeed fleeting…and it can also be fatal. It frightens me.
