Macaulay Culkin’s OK of the Day: After photos surfaced online yesterday of a scraggly Macaulay Culkin looking like a partied-out monster, many began to wonder if the former child star was ill.
“Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health,” a rep insisted. “For Entertainment Tonight—or any other media outlet —to speculate otherwise is reckless, irresponsible and destructive. We implore them to discontinue the rumor.”
It’s reckless and irresponsible to worry about the health of a much-loved celebrity? Solid logic there, chief.
Get well soon, Macaulay!
Sad News of the Day: Milo, the 12-year-old sea otter who gained Internet stardom after being filmed holding hands with his female companion Nyac, has passed away.
Milo was undergoing chemotherapy for lymphoma at the Vancouver Aquarium, but sadly succumbed to the disease earlier this week.
“He was the very first live sea otter diagnosed with lymphoma,” said Aquarium veterinarian Dr. Martin Haulena. “He was also the very first sea otter that I’m aware of that had chemotherapy.”
Bodies of wild otters recovered after death have tested positively for lymphoma, but Milo was the first living otter to be diagnosed with it.
“He was one of our emblematic animals who was loved by staff, volunteers, members and people worldwide,” said the aquarium in a statement. “Our team—especially those who worked closely with Milo during the past months to provide specialized care while he was receiving treatment — are saddened by his death, but take solace in his peaceful departure.”
Nyac, Milo’s significant otter, arrived at the aquarium in 1989 following the Exxon Valdez oil spill. She passed away in 2008 from chronic lymphatic leukemia at age 20.
Heartbreaking Tearjerker of the Day: Ed Watson wanted nothing more than to marry his loving, loyal partner of 40 years, Derence Kernek, before succumbing to his rapidly progressing Alzheimer’s.
Back in March, the couple, with the help of the Courage Campaign, released a video plea asking for assistance in convincing the 9th Circuit Court to lift California’s ban on same-sex marriage until a decision on the constitutionality of Proposition 8 was reached.
The court ignored their plea, and, sadly, Ed passed away today, never knowing the joy of marrying his significant other.
“It’s ironic that he died on the eve of appeals about peripheral issues around a case that should have been settled more than a year ago,” said Courage Campaign founder and chairman Richard Jacobs. “None of this will matter to Ed or Derence.”
The LA Times notes that, in addition to depriving the couple of Ed’s dying wish, the ban also prevented him from being covered by his partner’s out-of-state retirement plan, which led to financial hardships.
As a testament to that, Derence could not be reached for comment as their phone had recently been disconnected.
