in Death by

I don’t think I had a bigger crush in the 90’s than Luke Perry. I think I had about 5 posters of just him hanging in my bedroom. I was so saddened to hear that he passed this week. I only started watching Riverdale because he played Archie Andrew’s father, Fred. I was never a fan of the Archie comics and was not particularly interested in the story, however because Luke Perry was in it, I watched it. I think most women who lived during the 90’s feel the same way about Luke Perry.

His beloved character on 90201, Dylan McKay, was a bad boy loner who was also very emotionally vulnerable and women everywhere loved him. He played the character with such convincing likeness that fans still jokingly refer to him as “Dylan” even as his career moved on. Even though his good looks and acting credentials secured him as a Hollywood heartthrob, Perry was also known for his charitable acts and random acts of kindness. There was an outpouring of stories from people that have stepped forward to share stories about the late actor’s good deeds.

Perry passed away Monday morning from a stroke at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Burbank. He was surrounded by loved ones when he died. He was rushed to the hospital last week after a call came from his house reporting that he had suffered from a stroke. He was responsive when medics first arrived but his conditioned started to deteriorate rapidly.

There has been a huge outpouring of sadness from writers and actors that have worked with Perry. People who loved and worked with him have taken to their social media accounts to express their profound sadness over his passing. His co-star, Lili Reinhart, from Riverdale tweeted:

Also, his co-stars from his 90201 days are sharing their grief about the loss of their friend and previous co-star.

Even writers from his previous shows are showing their sadness and support for the actor and his family. Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg, who penned the amazing episode that saw his return to 90201, spoke of the profound loss of such an amazing actor.

Perry, outside his roles on 90210 and Riverdale, also had prominent roles on shows like Another World, Oz, Jeremiah,WindfallJohn from Cincinnati, and Body of Proof. He also appeared in much loved movies like Buff the Vampire Slayer, 8 seconds, and just finished filming for Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Mary Tyler Moore

The passing of Mary Tyler Moore was shocking and saddening to many people across the country and within the Hollywood community. Details were released about the cause of her death and different complications she had leading up to it. Mary Tyler Moore was born on December 29, 1936, in Brooklyn, New York. She became one of the television’s most beloved wives, playing Laura Petrie on The Dick Van Dyke Show, and won two Emmys for her work on the series. The Mary Tyler Moore Show — featuring a single, 30-something woman in the working world — started in 1970 and won her three more Emmys. Her roles on these classic TV sitcoms have made her one of the most popular actresses in television history. The legendary actress died on January 25, 2017, at the age of 80.

Moore had been in the hospital for about a week before her passing, hooked up to a ventilator for several days before succumbing to what was an incident of cardiopulmonary arrest. According to this death certificate, Moore was suffering from severe health issues due to aspiration pneumonia, hypoxia and diabetes mellitus. After having trouble getting oxygen into her tissues, the actress went into cardiac arrest.


On Sunday, Moore was laid to rest at the Oaklawn Cemetery in Fairfield, Connecticut, according to the Connecticut Post. She had an intimate funeral with a small group of close friends and family.

Moore was a mover and a shaker of her time. She was one of the first to talk openly about life as a single, working woman.References made by Moore’s character to birth control at the time, for instance, took viewers by total surprise. Later in life, however, Moore was forced to back away from the spotlight a bit due to her health problems. In May of 2011, the actress underwent elective surgery to remove a benign tumor of the lining tissue of the brain. By 2014, friends say she was battling problems with her eyesight, kidneys, and heart.


“She was a groundbreaking actress, producer, and passionate advocate for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Mary will be remembered as a fearless visionary who turned the world on with her smile.”


Rest in Peace Mary Tyler Moore.

16 and Pregnant Star Valerie Fairman passed awayWe have some tragic news to report. Media outlets are reporting that former 16 and Pregnant season 2 star, Valerie Fairman has passed away at the young age of 23. She leaves behind her daughter,  Nevaeh, who is her daughter who was featured with her on her episode of 16 and Pregnant.  Navaeh was currently in the care of the late star’s adoptive mom and it appears that the former reality star was engaged, to local musician Russ Bosi.

Her death was confirmed on social media by family and friends. Her loved ones showed an outpouring of grief on her Facebook page on Thursday. MTV also released a statement announcing the passing of the young mother. They said, “We are saddened by the news of Valerie Fairman’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.”

The Daily Mail reported that the suspected cause of death is an overdose. Valerie’s mother told TMZ that on Wednesday Valerie was at a friends house and she went to the bathroom and her friend became concerned she had not returned from the bathroom. The friend broke down the door and they found the 23-year-old unresponsive. Her exact cause of death will not be known until after a autopsy.

Unfortunately, the reality star has struggled with addiction issues and legal troubles in the past. She has continued to struggle despite a stay in rehab. The Wednesday before she passed, the 23-year-old was arrested for resisting arrest and making a false identification to law enforcement. She has been arrested in the past for assaulting her mother and for prostitution. The incident on Wednesday was a routine traffic stop and when the cops questioned Valerie about her identification, she provided a false name. When the cops called her out on the false name, she then attempted to flee on foot. The report stated, “After a brief foot pursuit, Valerie Fairman, of Oxford, was taken into custody for resisting arrest and providing false identification to law enforcement. Valerie was arraigned in front of the Honorable Nancy Gill and released on $1,500 unsecured bail.”

Our heart goes out to her little girl and her family. This passing is so tragic and we saddened to report this news.
