Alan Colmes, who was one of Fox News's only prominent liberals, has died suddely at age 66.

His wife, Jocelyn Crowley, posted the following statement, confirming his death today:

Alan Colmes passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 66-years-old. He leaves his adoring and devoted wife, Jocelyn Elise Crowley. He was a great guy, brilliant, hysterical, and moral. He was fiercely loyal, and the only thing he loved more than his work was his life with Jocelyn. He will be missed. The family has asked for privacy during this very difficult time.

Though a left-wing commentator, his right-wing colleagues may have liked him even more than liberal audiences, who sometimes felt he was used as a deliberately downplayed foil to his longtime co-host, Sean Hannity. Hannity later received his own show.

Killian James, a great-looking porn actor who began his career in 2013 and retired in 2016 in a cloud of controversy over allegedly drug-fueled Twitter wars, racial slurs and feuds, was reported to have died yesterday — but it may turn out that he is very much alive.

Str8UpGayPorn (Work Unfriendly) reported that Ian Greene, a friend of Killian's and a fellow performer, tweeted his grief over the death, which he found out about scond-hand; there was therefore no confirmation that Killian was deceased, as the site duly noted.

Later, Greene retweeted an image purporting to show James texting with a friend about the news, and mocking Greene for tweeting it:

WIDGETSaudis paid for Trump hotel room; no coincidence they're not on the Muslim ban list.

WIDGETTurns out Trump is looking for easy D. I would've guessed Pence, but okay.

However... WORLD'S FOREMOST AUTHORITY Irwin Corey Dies @ 102 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-02-08 at 1.04.20 PM(Video still via THR)

Irwin Corey, comic revered for his improvisatonal, stream-of-consciousness parody of oh-so-very-smart people, has died at 102.

Known for his witty wordplay, Corey performed for most of his life. In 2014, he joked, “... We had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Today, 10 years later, there's no cash. There's no hope. There's no jobs.”

Blacklisted for his support of Communism in the '50s, he was an outspoken social activist until the end of his life. In spite of living in a multi-million-dollar carriage house in NYC, he would routinely panhandle change in order to donate it to worthy causes.

I loved Richard Hatch. In the '70s, he was in all the teen magazines, which says a lot about how differently we look at who makes good teen idols nowadays considering the fact that he was 30 years old.

Click here for my meeting with Mr. Hatch in 2011!

A stunning man, the camera absolutely loved him. I was so happy I met him about five years ago at an autograph show, where I got to have him sign a pretty sexy magazine spread of himself. He was only too happy to oblige.

Lead Singer Of Rock Group Asia, John Wetton, Dies @ 67 Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 1.56.09 PMJohn Wetton: (Images via Geffen)

Sad news: John Wetton, co-founder, lead singer and chief songwriter for the '80s group Asia, ASIA_ASTRA-101308has died at 67 of colon cancer.

Wetton had recently canceled upcoming tour dates to embark on a new cycle of chemo, but seemed optimistic that he had more time left.

I loved that first Asia album. I remember being captivated by the Heat of the Moment and Only Time Will Tell music videos, with their cheesy (but, back then, new) visual gimmicks, like the slow-mo face slap, the flaming cymbal, that hammer-crushed hourglass, the TV screens with disembodied faces, the gymnast's eternal flips.

(I also found the drummer, in his skintight white vest, awfully cute — he had such a good time making that first video. Carl Palmer?)

Also good: “Sole Survivor.” It's hard to believe now, but their debut album was the #1 hit of 1982, and it did so on the strength of just one #4 and one #17 single. Nothing else charted in the U.S. on the Hot 100.

I kept up with them through their next record, too, with these gems (love the Indiana Jones knock-off):

Wetton is survived by his wife, a son, a brother and his mom.
