BERNIE MAC IS NOT DEAD DESPITE RUMORS » Actor Bernie Mac has gone through the horror of being reported as dead, when he’s in fact, alive, but unfortunately, not well. The 50-year-old actor is currently in the hospital undergoing treatment for a chronic case of pneumonia. In regards to the death rumors, his publicist Danica Smith, immediately squashed them over the weekend:
“It’s not true,” Smith told the Chicago Sun-Times, “It is a very horrible rumor. Nothing has changed from yesterday. He is responding well to treatment and will be released soon. He asked that his privacy and that of his family is respected while he gets well. He’s Bernie — he’s one of the best guys you’ll meet.”
Bernie’s publicist also made it clear that his case of pneumonia is completely unrelated to his sarcoidosis, a disease he was diagnosed with a few years back. The disease is said to cause tissue inflammation, particularly in the lungs, but has been in remission since 2005. That’s good to hear! We are praying that Bernie Mac gets well soon as well.
SNOOP DOGG’S “DAWGS” BUSTED FOR HAVING WEED ON THE TOUR BUS » Pot smoking 101: Never smoke weed in a moving vehicle … and that includes tour buses! When Dallas police officers pulled a tour bus occupying rapper Snoop Dogg and his entourage for expired registration tags, they noticed a “funny” smell. They subsequently searched the bus, and found 2 ounces of marijuana. We all know how Snoop Dogg is with his weed, so we all basically know it was his. But 2 unidentified men claimed it was theirs so that Snoop could proceed with the night’s concert, and they were arrested, and later released on $1500 bond. Don’t we all wish we had friends like that?
