What's Really Going On In Hollywood These Days?

Reportedly the last picture of Heath (taken yesterday) by Gawker
In non-YBF news, actor Heath Ledger has suddenly died. He was in Brokeback Mountain and also had a role in Monster's Ball. He also recently wrapped the upcoming Batman movie where he's playing Joker. He split from his fiance' Michelle Williams (who's also the mother of his little girl Matilda) last year. Sources suspect a drug overdose-but he's never been one known for being on drugs.  This is definitely a sad and extra surprising occurrence.  R.I.P. UPDATE: Sources are saying he actually has had a secret drug problem in the past but has been clean for a year.  Several Ambien sleeping pills were found surrounding his body in the apartment today. And I see folks still haven't learned how wack these chains are: Soulja Boyhit up the MTV studios this week.   Ish never changes.

What is going on in

What is going on in Hollyweird lately. I know it's not something new, but there's been a lot of drug overdoses, and suicides. Is it because of the writer's strike that cause this despair? I can't believe that I wanted to be an actress. I wanted the Hollyweird lifestyle! Oooh! Yuck! Well I can't act worth a hoot anyways.

RIP Heath.. he was a great actor with so much ahead of him.[/quote] It's HEATH, not keith. at least get the name right!!!and how do u have a "serious drug problem" but "quickly recover before it got out of hand"???? if you have a serious drug problem, then it is OUT OF HAND. and it was PILLS, not cocaine!!it seems like only certain sites say rocks when everyone else, including CNN, says pills. One article he was interviewed for talked about how he couldn't sleep and was takin Ambien but it didnt work so he kept takin them. i think that's what happened here, but that's my opinion.

RIP Heath! He was such an

RIP Heath! He was such an amazing talent. His deaths have all the looks of an accidental overdose. I know we won't know the truth for a while, but here's how I understand it - He was taking Ambien because playing the Joker gave him nightmares. He was also filming outdoors in costume (not enough warm clothes), and caught pneumonia. Being sick may have made him more sensitive to the meds. Also, do you remember hearing crazy stories about people on Ambien who would wake up in the middle of the night and eat full meals, drive, etc, then wake up the next morning with no memory of doing so? I wonder if he OD'd in some kind of sleepwalking state. BTW, the didn't find him naked on the floor as reported, the housekeeper put him on the floor to give him CPR (so when the police arrived and gave report - that's where he was) and he was naked because he was expecting his massage therapist to arrive. Ok, we may not know the whole truth yet, but we do know he's dead. God bless him, Matilda, Michelle and family.

I finally inferred that it was Souljaboy because of that stupid "Superman" chain.

I was just going to make a comment about the picture that was chosen. That picture is from the Batman set (that's why his hair's all scraggly and he looks messy). He was generally a very well-groomed man. Sometimes gossip sites can be just a tad insensitive, eh?

Natasha-- Now that it is

Natasha-- Now that it is clear many of the early reports about the circumstances of Heath Ledger's death were completely false, I hope you will correct your post. He was not found with pills around his body and the cause of his death will not be known until the autopsy report is complete. This is a gossip site and I love to read your posts, but this young man had a family as well as fans and it's kind of disgusting to read all these false stories. It is surely causing his family more pain.

My heart goes out to Heath

My heart goes out to Heath Ledger and his family. I was shocked. He seemed like a real person, doing the job of acting. Not just getting parts just b/c of looks and who you know. When some people depart, I'm like okay that's sad but there are ones that really touch you and you take notice. Respect to all

I'm deepley saddened by Heath's tragic death. Situations like this remind you that tomorrow is never promised and that life is indeed a precious gift not to be taken for granted. I loved the movie "Brokeback Mountain" and I loved the role that Heath played. What is important to remember is that he had a chance to touch millions with his acting capabilities and he lived out his dreams of being a successful actor. God Bless the Dead.

SO so sad...I saw that interview where Heath talked about being so so tired and the toll the Joker had on him...I also heard he was a little unwell with pneumonia...I think this was accidental....

You want to count how many black actors/singers.. have died of drug overdoeses? whether it's on purpose or accidental.. there are lots of non-whites who have died te same way!Oh yeah and I guess you didn't read about IKE TURNER?? Do you homerwork my dear before you make a comment like that. I am offend that you would even make such a comment like that. Drugs affects the smartest, the funniest, the messed up, the craziest, wisest people around. Once you are hooked, you are HOOKED!!

I am deeply saddened at the

I am deeply saddened at the loss of such a talented actor as Heath Ledger. My prayers and my condolences go out to his family, especially his young daughter. He had so much more life to live. And lets remember that many people in the spotlight, whether in "white" hollywood or "black" hollywood, can't handle the media scrutiny and sometimes seem to suffer from depression and look to other things for relief from their lifestyles. Just as Heath is gone, let us remember that we have lost some of our own in the same if not similar circumstances (RIP Pimp C), so what exactly is "typical" and for who?? It is such a tragedy, but let us respect those that are no longer with us and their families and not make ignorant statements like "...typical for white hollywood". Hollywood is hollywood. "I'm not good at future planning. I don't plan at all. I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow. I don't have a day planner and I don't have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future..." -Heathcliff Andrew Ledger April 4, 1979 - Januarry 22, 2008

This totally took me by suprise. Someone made a comment about how the majority of people living in this world are unsatisfied their lives, thinking that they would be better off if they gained noriety and fortune--but this is a perfect example of the world we live in today. Tommorrow isn't promised, and it's extremely unwise to compare your life to someone elses because we don't know that person's situation in life. Heath was a very talented actor, and I'm really looking forward to seeing his performance as the Joker in "The Dark Knight". My condolences go out to his ex and his daughter. ...oh yeah Souljah Boy sucks, and his one-hit wonder carrer is done.

What's going on in Hollywood

What's going on in Hollywood is what has always been going on and what will continue to be going on. No matter how many people die of overdoses, stars and regular folks will continue to use and die from drugs. I have no doubt that there are many many more stars abusing drugs that we know nothing about.

A man died. A child lost her

A man died. A child lost her father. I day after the King Federal Holiday celebration and people are showing such disrespect for the lost of a life. A lost of life is a lost of life. Show some respect and empathy. I GUESS THE DREAM REALLY IS LOST. We can not even show respect for young man leaving this world (accident or intentional). A child has lost her father.

I don't understand why this site and other black sites say "in non-ybf news" or "in white folk's news..." yeah he may not be black, but he was a talented actor nonetheless who did work w/ ppl featured on this site (and others). so maybe it is relevant? those of you that say "its typical of white hollywood" need to realize that overdoses happen to ppl of all colors. those that say "its just another day" should know that if he were your father/brother/cousin/nephew, it would not be just another day. show respect.
