First Screech loses his house, then makes a porno. Now Ed McMahon loses his house…dear God, please don’t let this end up like Screech. Usmagazine.com reports:
Former Johnny Carson sidekick Ed McMahon spoke out on CNN’s Larry King Live about the possible foreclosure of his multimillion-dollar Beverly Hills mansion.
“If you spend more money than you make, you know what happens,” he said. “You know, a couple of divorces thrown in, a few things like that. And, you know, things happen.”
I like how he said “a couple of divorces thrown in, a few things like that.” Oh, right, a few things where something happens that causes you to lose half your money, which at one time was more than 200 million dollars. I like how he just glossed over what those things were. “Yeah, you know, divorce, paid an assassin to kill JFK, funded an experiment to shrink myself so I could be injected into a human’s bloodstream like that Innerspace movie, blah blah, you know, standard shit.”
See, right now he needs to get back into the late night talk show circuit. Except he can’t carry a show of his own, so he’s still gonna have to be a side kick. Except the only way his show will get ratings in today’s market is if there’s an incredibly dynamic and controversial performer with him. Something like this:
I would definitely watch this over Leno.
