Surprisingly nice headline of the week:
Travolta's battle to save tragic "Taxi" star.

Publication: National Enquirer
Date: 30 May 2011

Fresh trash on Thursdays! Welcome to 2011 tabloid gossip hell, Jeff Conaway!

For those of you visiting the blog for the first time, know that AMI, the company that owns the National Enquirer and four other gossip rags, hates Scientology with every fiber of their being, hating John Travolta, Kirstie Alley and Tom Cruise almost equally. So this week, it comes as a surprise that they put up a positive story about Travolta doing his best to help out his Grease co-star Jeff Conaway, whose problems with booze and pain killers have been well documented on all those miserable celebrity rehab shows.

I have no love for Scientology either, but anyone willing to reach out to help a pal from back in the day is doing the right thing in my book.

If you saw even one episode of Dr. Drew's Celebrity Rehab, you'd know that Conaway was gonna OD and die very soon.
He made Amy Winehouse look like Carrie Nation.

I'm in a deadpool this year using only people who got the Kiss of Death from the tabloids by December 2010. They could have mentioned Jeff Conaway last year, or even this year so I could put him on my list for next year, but no such luck, damn it.

He's a lot better bet to kick the bucket than some much older people on my list.
