HUELL HOWSER IS GONE, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

We miss him already. It’s hard to imagine California without Huell Howser. The host of PBS’s California’s Gold died this week and we will miss him. He delighted in investigating California landmarks, small towns, and odd places of interest. We discovered many local idiosyncrasies thanks to Huell. Once we even had dinner at his apartment in the swanky El Royale in Hollywood. He was always a Southern gentleman. (Above, Huell at The Bunny Museum)

    What a great man! He was loved by so many people! He made you happy and intrested about any little thing that he reported on his TV shows. He will be greatly missed. He was “California Gold”.

    We were shocked to hear of Huell’s death. It is amazing what he meant to people. His “aw shucks” manner will be missed. I hope there will be a public memorial service for him.

    A gentleman and a sweetheart of a guy. His enthusiasm never failed to impress me & it was always fun to run into him at El Coyote! RIP, HH!

    Since I live in the deep south, I don’t know him, but he has a sweet kind face and there are many in deep sorrow now. He looks like really likable.

    Meant: He looks really likable.

    mis-spelled likable….should be likeable.

    So sad. Heaven has gained a great personality

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
