Sadly, it’s not a joke this time.
I’ll admit, I never really watched his show or gave him much consideration, but I still find this news to be saddening. He’s grown to become one of those names, one of those celebrities who always seem to be there and doing something, not quite as oversaturating as some, but not as under-the-radar as others.
I wasn’t exactly a fan, but I harbor no ill feelings towards him, either. All the same, I do consider him to be a gutsier individual than I am, and I prefer to think that he enjoyed what he did, and so might have died happy doing it.
