Thanks, everybody!

...For commenting on my Hollywood Diabetes musings.

Unfortunately, I've been so wrapped up in reading my comments and thinking about those that I totally forgot to come up with another post for today. Oops.

However, I was thinking earlier how Bret Michaels is a diabetic and has his own reality show now. I'm sure Rock of Love is far, far from accurate and realistic, but I wonder if they ever even mention his diabetes on the show...Has anyone seen it? Any idea? Did you know he was diabetic?

Or how about this: who's your favorite famous diabetic? Or do you know of any? Mine is probably Jean Smart, because I used to adore Designing Women when I was a kid. And because she looks so darn good these days. (Well, when she's not playing a druggie or alcoholic or whatever she was in Garden State.) Oh, and she's a good actress, at least according to me.

Y'all, it's way past my bedtime. Shame on me for staying up to watch The Soup Presents again. Do we sense a pattern here?

Victor Garber!! He's a type 1 and has been very active in getting funding for research!

no, Bret Michaels does not discuss his diabetes at all. I had no idea. Not that I have watched it or anything (ahem). Oh but he has enjoyed libations on the show. I should write him an e-mail to let him know that he shouldn't drink (wink wink).

I like Jean Smart, too. She was really good in "24".

One that broke my heart was Dana Hill. I think I felt a connection to her because she was closer to my age. She was so funny in European Vacation. Unfortunately, she passed away in 1996 from a stroke - they say it was a complication of her diabetes. (???) Even though her health declined at an early age, she still continued to work doing voices for cartoons. I had great respect for someone who was so ill but kept on going anyway. I always admired that.

Sorry - didn't mean to be such a downer. Just thought I would mention her.
