It's apparently been a bad week for celebrities!


Tampa police say Billy Mays, the television pitchman known for his boisterous hawking of products such as Orange Glo and OxiClean, has died. He was 50.

Authorities say Mays was pronounced dead this morning after being found by his wife at home. There were no signs of a break-in, and investigators do not suspect foul play. The coroner's office expects to have an autopsy done by Monday afternoon.


A genuinely nice guy according to those who knew him. Another cultural icon bites the dust.

  2. "I just saw Billy Mays in a news interview yesterday and he looked 100% healthy".

    Some reports have him having been struck on the head as his plane blew a tire on landing.

    If true, I think the Cause of Death will be related to the head injury.
